Hitachi Unveils CP-WU13K DLP Projector

With Hitachi's Picture by Picture function, content from two sources can be displayed simultaneously, side by side on one screen.

CHULA VISTA, California, April 10, 2014 - Delivering a high-performance, 3G SDI-ready projector with a dynamic feature set and broadcast capability, Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division, Business Solutions Group is introducing its Professional Series CP-WU13K DLP projector. The Hitachi CP-WU13K projector offers 13,000 lumens brightness plus advanced functionality and flexible installation features, making it ideal for large auditoriums, broadcast applications, conference rooms, museums, and concert or stage productions.


The CP-WU13K is 3D-ready, incorporates four digital inputs for added versatility and broadcast capability, plus a high-performance filter reducing dust sticking to critical components. For even greater image quality, the CP-WU13K features 3-chip DLP technology and is equipped with 3G SDI. A standard in the broadcast industry, 3G SDI can transfer 1080p signal via coaxial cable.

The CP-WU13K offers DICOM® (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) Simulation Mode, which projects grayscale images to approximate DICOM Part 14 specifications. This mode is ideal for viewing grayscale medical images, such as X-rays, for training and educational purposes. The CPWU13K is also equipped with edge-blending functionality, which achieves the seamless projection of one image using multiple projectors. A specialized application also offers geometric correction, making projection possible on spherical surfaces and surfaces with corners, as well as conventional flat screens.

The CP-WU13K features motorized zoom, focus and lens shift control allow for a greater range of installation possibilities, enabling users to make fine adjustments via remote control or an RS232/IP device. In addition, six optional lenses are available with the CP-WU13K for even greater versatility.

With Hitachi's Picture by Picture function, content from two sources can be displayed simultaneously, side by side on one screen. Any two sources can be used, including two HDMI sources, with both images sharing equal screen size. This is ideal for teleconferencing applications. Meanwhile, Hitachi's Picture in Picture function enables users to display one image inside another image using any two sources. The CP-WU13K also features Hitachi's Perfect Fit 2 image adjustment system, which corrects for any geometric image distortion and precisely fits the images to the screen or tabletop.

The CP-WU13K is equipped with a highly reliable dual lamp system, meaning if one lamp stops functioning during use, the second lamp activates and projects the image with no interruption in the projection. In addition, 24 hours of continuous operation is available with the Alternative Mode, which alternates the use of the two lamps. Embedded networking technology offers the ability to manage and control multiple projectors over a LAN connection. Also, Hitachi's PJMessenger function allows text messages and audio alerts to be sent on all networked projectors throughout an entire campus or facility.

The CP-WU13K is backed by a 3-year warranty and Hitachi's world-class service and support programs.
