Glendale Community College Chooses Hitachi Projectors For Low Total Cost of Ownership

Glendale, Arizona, August 19, 2014 – Arizona’s Glendale Community College media team has been implementing projector teaching technology ever since 2004 when Scott Kozakiewicz, Manager of Media and Help Desk, was put in charge of a data projector upgrade plan. After browsing several projector options based on their total cost of ownership, Mr. Kozakiewicz purchased a Hitachi projector and soon made the decision to convert the school to an all-Hitachi campus featuring over 300 Hitachi projectors.

“Hitachi is the one company that has a consistent design across its entire product line, so we have the ability to use the same bulbs with different models,” said Mr. Kozakiewicz. “Upgrades have been painless and affordable.”

Mr. Kozakiewicz needed a solution that was not only bright, affordable and dependable, but also user-friendly. He originally set up a testing area and invited faculty to experiment with several different projector companies and brands. Based on feedback from the teachers and media staff, Hitachi was the clear choice.

“The Hitachi projectors provide the necessary brightness to operate in a well-lit room and don’t overwhelm the faculty,” said Mr. Kozakiewicz. “Rather, the projectors supplement their teaching and presentations.”

Glendale Community College serves over 20,000 students between its two local campuses, with projectors frequently running from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Thursday and shorter days on Friday and Saturday. Mr. Kozakiewicz cited Hitachi’s customer support as an important factor as well—several times he’s gathered data from faculty, relayed it back to Hitachi, and seen his recommendations integrated into future projectors.

“My responsibility is to provide faculty and students with the latest technology that can enhance teaching and learning, but at the same time I have to be fiscally responsible to our taxpayers,” said Mr. Kozakiewicz. “We’ve been able to deploy and maintain more than 300 Hitachi projectors while satisfying both of these needs.”

When asked if he would recommend Hitachi projectors to similar institutions, Mr. Kozakiewicz replied that he would “without hesitation.”

“I was one of the first to invest in Hitachi and now many schools in our district have jumped on board as well,” said Mr. Kozakiewicz. “The best products are ones that you don’t need to think about being there—pure and simple, Hitachi’s projectors just work.”
