Hitachi Launches New Networked Projector

Hitachi Home Electronics America introduced the CP-X3010N 3LCD projector, the networkable counterpart to the CP-X3010. The new product coincides with Hitachi's release of its Projector Management Application Version 7, proprietary technology that provides functionality to control, diagnose, and manage an individual or group of Hitachi projectors from a single location.

Hitachi Home Electronics America today introduced the CP-X3010N 3LCD projector, the networkable counterpart to the CP-X3010. The new product coincides with Hitachi's release of its Projector Management Application (PJMan) Version 7, proprietary technology that provides functionality to control, diagnose, and manage an individual or group of Hitachi projectors from a single location, according to the company.

The new version of PJMan can produce queries and reports in real time, giving AV/IT managers with the ability to gather data to analyze projector usage and produce call tickets. It also includes e-mail, report, and scheduling capabilities.

Hitachi's Projector Control Application (PJCtrl) allows a user to control the functions of a Hitachi Projector through a toolbar on their desktop or laptop PC. Since all of the functions for controlling the projector are on the PC, PJCtrl helps to reduce costs associated with lost remote controls and battery replacement, says company officials. Users can control up to five of the same Hitachi projectors simultaneously either via a direct RJ-45 connection, an 802.11 b/g wireless connection, or an external Ethernet-to-Serial device.

Hitachi's proprietary My Image functionality allows AV/IT administrators to transfer still images, such as emergency alerts, from a PC to each projector on the network. When the My Image function is utilized, the images are automatically displayed on all the projectors, including the projectors that are not in use at the time. My Image can also be used for sending presentation images ahead of time to a projector, sending morning announcements to rooms on campus, or sending other important notifications. Similarly, Hitachi's Projector Messenger Application (PJMessenger) allows an administrator to send real-time (or stored) text messages that appear on the screen of the projector. When used with the scheduling function, notifications can be shown at preset times, making each screen a virtual message board.

The new CP-X3010N itself offers brightness of 3,000 lumens and a 2000:1 contrast ratio. It features 16 watts of built-in audio while maintaining a low noise rating of 29 dBA in Eco Mode, according to the company. Lamp life is rated at 3,000 hours in Standard Mode and 6,000 hours in Eco Mode.

Pricing was not immediately available.
