NEW Hitachi ULTRA HIGH END LCD projectors:

  • Reliability : Dust-resistant cooling system, 10,000 hour air filter, long life inorganic LCD panel and polarisers

•· Flexibility : An extensive choice of lenses to cater for an even wider range of throw distances, screen sizes and lens shift requirements

  • Total Cost of Ownership : Low maintenance costs due to long service intervals, simplified maintenance tasks and proactive monitoring via email alerts
  • Performance : Brightest ever Hitachi projectors up to 7500 lumens, high contrast image and exceptional colour reproduction in a range of resolutions
  • Quality : High quality components and design to meet the demanding requirements of the professional AV market

Hitachi Digital Media Group today announced the launch of a new family of LCD projectors that signal the company's entry into the professional AV market. Bringing Hitachi quality, innovation and reliability for the very first time to large venues requiring high end projection solutions the CP-X10000, CP-WX11000 and CP-SX12000 offer a breakthrough package combining low cost of ownership with flexible installation options. Whether deployed in conference auditoria, exhibition halls, large lecture theatres or stage productions, audiences will be impressed with the outstanding performance and brightness while AV professionals will relish the ease of installation and maintenance.

"For the first time the high end AV market can benefit from Hitachi's ongoing commitment to drive down total cost of ownership through innovative design, quality engineering and built-in reliability. Whatever the application and in any environment, these capable, low maintenance and flexible projectors are an ideal solution for this demanding market," said Axel Kutschke, Senior Manager, Presentation Products for Hitachi Digital Media Group. "The introduction of these three new models means AV professionals can now choose a projector that is easy to install and that delivers exceptional performance for any large venue."

Designed from scratch specifically to meet the demands of the professional market, all three models feature a dust-resistant cooling system that eliminates one of the main sources of reliability issues. The efficiency of this system also means that regardless of the ambient conditions the air filter will last for over 10,000 maintenance-free hours. The use of long life components including inorganic LCD panels and polariser filters enhances reliability still further. When maintenance is eventually needed the projector can send email alerts of imminent requirements, eliminating unplanned downtime and for example, removing the need to perform a manual lamp test. Easy access to the key components including the lamp, LCD panel and the polariser, simplify maintenance when replacements are needed.

The models also offer the highest possible image quality, with an iris-based high contrast system delivering a contrast ratio of 2500:1. Meanwhile the high quality scaler chip, 12 bit digital gamma and 10 bit signal processor as used on high end home theatre models ensure superb colour reproduction.

To cope easily with the variety of installation requirements of the professional market, the new family features a selection of optional bayonet lenses that provide a wide range of projection distances and lens shifts. By delivering a 200" screen from as short a throw distance as 2.1m, the models allow for space saving rear projection as well as flexible installation in any situation. All models can project screen sizes of between 40" and 700" and depending on the lens in use a 100" screen can be displayed from as close as 1m or as far distant as 20.2m. To provide even greater flexibility and cater for even the largest of venues there is the option to blend multiple projectors together.

A range of resolution and brightness options are provided by each of the new models. As the brightest of the three at 7500 lumens, the CP-X10000 delivers 1024x768 XGA resolution, while the WXGA CP-WX11000 offers true 1280x800 (16:10) widescreen performance at 6500. Finally the CP-SX12000 with 1400x1050 SXGA+ also reaches the impressive 7000 lumens barrier.

All the models naturally incorporate the latest Hitachi convenience and security features as well as the connectivity options which make all Hitachi projectors so popular. My Screen, My Memory and My Button as well as input source naming, resolution presets and blackboard, whiteboard and day time modes ensure the projectors are easy to use, while PIN Lock, My Screen PIN lock, keypad lock, Kensington slot, a transition detector, My Text password and a security LED ensure that security is of the highest level. Every conceivable connectivity option is also covered including HDMI and BNC as well as an RJ-45 network socket. Finally, new, easy to use software to manage and control the projectors is now free to download from, making it simple for users and professionals alike to access and benefit from the powerful networking features that are in built into all the models.


The Hitachi CP-X10000 is available across Europe in December 2008. The CP-WX11000 will be available in February 2009 and CP-SX12000 in March 2009.
