Hitachi Introduces Three New Collegiate Series 3LCD Projectors With Unique Features

Optimal Picture Performance and Outstanding Value

CHULA VISTA, California, April 24, 2013 - Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division, Business Solutions Group today introduced three new additions to its Collegiate Series 3LCD projectors: the CP-WX4022WN, CP-X4022WN and CP-X5022WN. These new models offer high brightness, energy efficiency and advanced connectivity, making them ideal for large classrooms, lecture halls and auditoriums.


The CP-WX4022WN provides a brightness of 4,000 lumens with WXGA resolution. The CP-X4022WN features a brightness of 4,000 lumens and XGA resolution, while the CP-X5022WN offers 5,000 lumens brightness and XGA resolution. All three projectors offer network compatibility via wired or wireless connection (wireless connection is available with the optional USBWL11N wireless adapter) and can be remotely controlled via a local area network (LAN).

The CP-WX4022WN, CP-X4022WN and CP-X5022WN are equipped with Hitachi's exclusive Eco Mode and ImageCare energy-saving technology that combines optimal picture performance with maximum energy savings by decreasing energy usage, improving contrast ratio and lengthening lamp life. They provide up to a 3000:1 contrast ratio for vivid colors, bold graphics and crisp text.

The new Collegiate Series projectors offer the unique DICOM® (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) Simulation Mode, which reproduces images with an advanced grayscale level. This mode is ideal for viewing grayscale medical images, X-rays, and for training and educational purposes.

The projectors' Perfect Fit 2 feature enables the user to adjust the image's individual corners and sides independent of one another. Perfect Fit 2 also provides vertical and horizontal digital correction of either barrel or pin cushion distortions. This feature helps correct geometric and complicated distortions. Perfect Fit 2 projects images to correctly fit the screen quickly and easily. Also available is horizontal and vertical lens shift, which eases installation.

The new Collegiate Series models provide a full array of A/V connectivity options including HDMI, component, composite and S-video inputs, with RGB inputs and outputs, audio connections, and an RS-232C port for integrated A/V system control. Hitachi's wired and wireless switcher solutions provide an expanded source selection and switching options for connected devices. The switcher is sold as an optional accessory that provides 1080p 30fps wireless via WHDI for both video and audio.

Also available is Hitachi's Projector Quick Connection iPad App offers full projection control and the capability to display photos, document files and web site contents with iOS systems-Apple's iPad and iPhone.

The projectors' unique Cloning Function allows configuration settings to be copied from one projector to others of the same model via USB memory. Cloning saves almost all projector settings such as gamma and keystoning via USB memory. The projectors also feature Hitachi's PC-Less Presentation feature that enables users to project images directly from a USB drive or other USB storage device, eliminating the need to connect a laptop or desktop computer.
