Hitachi Introduces CP-AW2519N Ultra Short Throw Interactive Projector

The CP-AW2519N Features Hitachi's Proprietary StarBoard Software and a Throw Distance of 10 Inches From the Edge of the Projector For An 80-Inch (16:10) Diagonal Image

LAS VEGAS, Nevada, June 13, 2012 - At InfoComm 2012, Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division, Business Solutions Group today introduced the CP-AW2519N Interactive Projector, featuring Hitachi's proprietary StarBoard Software, which works on Mac and PC platforms. The CP-AW2519N Interactive Projector has all the functionality of an interactive whiteboard built into it, eliminating the need for additional hardware.


The new CP-AW2519N offers easy setup even in rooms where space is limited, with an ultra-short-throw lens that enables it to be mounted close to a wall or projection surface. This prevents obstructed images and shadows, with no light shining in the presenter's eyes. The CP-AW2519N also comes with a stand to project the image onto a tabletop surface.

For better performance, the CP-AW2519N communicates via IR and Ultrasonic technologies. This increases reliability and eliminates lag time from pen to projection for a more natural writing experience.

The CP-AW2519N Interactive Projector features a simple menu system that provides easy access to many functions. The CP-AW2519N's Input Source Naming feature, a Hitachi exclusive, lets the user customize the names of input sources if desired. The projector's remote offers My Memory, My Screen and My Buttons options for fast access to frequently used functions and sources. The CP-AW2519N is designed for easy maintenance, with a hybrid air/fan filter that allows less frequent cleaning (4,000 hours between maintenance), and an easy access lamp compartment.

Hitachi's exclusive Perfect Fit 2 image adjustment system enables the user to adjust individual corners and sides independently of one another. Perfect Fit 2 provides vertical and horizontal digital correction of either barrel or pin cushion distortions. This feature helps correct geometric and complicated distortions. Perfect Fit 2 allows the projected image to fit correctly to the screen quickly and easily.

The CP-AW2519N offers 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness, WXGA resolution and a throw distance of 10 inches from the edge of the projector for an 80-inch (16:10) diagonal image. The CP-AW2519N also has an RJ-45 Ethernet jack for connection to a local area network (LAN), providing the ability to network, control and maintain the projector from a remote location. A built-in speaker and 10-watt amplifier eliminate the need to connect external speakers. The CP-AW2519N also features an HDMI input.
