HITACHI INTRODUCES ITS FIRST 3500-LUMEN PROJECTOR
Hitachi America has introduced the LP-WU3500 3500-lumen LED projector. The LP-WU3500 offers low total cost and low-maintenance ownership, with an expected 20,000 hours of life. The new LP-WU3500 projector comes with a host of features and a five-year or 20,000 hours limited warranty.
“Hitachi’s LED technology allows the projector to have a much longer life than traditional lamp-based projectors. Additionally, with no lamp or filter to replace LED projectors are a reliable and cost-effective choice with a lower total cost of ownership,” says Mike Morin, Manager, Strategic Sales Development, Hitachi America Ltd. “With more lumens and better picture and colour quality, our customers are able to use the LP-WU3500 for more applications than ever before.”
The High Lumen Density (HLD) technology works by channeling blue LED light through a phosphor rod, where it is discharged as bright green light. Working in tandem with high brightness red and blue LED lights, it achieves maximum brightness and a 30,000:1 contrast ratio. LED technology delivers enhanced image quality with a wider colour gamut which results in brilliant picture quality with crisp, clear, bright colours.
The LP-WU3500 operates at a much lower noise level than other projectors, making it ideal for presentations and environments such as classrooms, conference rooms, art galleries, museums and digital signage. The dust resistant structure applied to the optical engine reduces the effect of dust and particles in the air and enables the projector to be used in an array of environments without overheating and creating unnecessary noise.
The LP-WU3500 has WUXGA 1920×1200 resolution and is available immediately. An additional WXGA 1280×800 model, the LP-WX3500, will be available in March.
