HITACHI INTRODUCES NEW 8000+ SERIES PROJECTORS
Hitachi’s Digital Media Division has introduced the new 8000+ Series 3LD projectors to its high-end projector line up; CP-X8800, CP-WX8650, CP-WX8750, CP-WU8600 and CP-WU8700. The 8000+ Series projectors come with advanced installation and system features for a host of applications from corporate boardroom to large auditorium venues. All five models offer HDBaseT, multiple interchangeable lenses, Accentualizer and High Dynamic Contrast Range (HDCR), Image Optimizer technology and 360° rotation.
Installation features include edge blending and warping that allows smooth projection on spherical surfaces and in corners without image distortion. 360 projection is available on all series models. Projectors can be mounted at an angle including at 90° for vertical projection. Other features include a seamless design for the HDBaseT and power cord, and multiple digital inputs that include HDBaseT, HDMI, and display port. 3G SDI is available in the CP-WU8700.
All five models are complete with Color Management technology that allows users to change hue, saturation and luminance of the six colours (red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow) individually. The Accentualizer and HDCR help by enhancing the shade, sharpness and gloss of the projection while increasing the contrast to allow for high quality colour projection in brightly lit rooms.
Every projector in the series provides superior video quality for screens 30 to 600 inches diagonal with lumens that range between 6000 to 8000 depending on the model. Resolution also varies by the model ranging from XGA 1024×768 to WUXGA 1920×1200. All models have a contrast ratio of 10,000:1.
The 8000+ Series projectors include Hitachi’s Status Monitoring System that produces information about the projector’s operational status in real-time on a rear panel LED screen. Additional advanced features also include motorised lens shift, zoom and focus; centre lens design; picture by picture; picture in picture and DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) Simulation Mode. Every model is equipped to be compatible with five interchangeable lenses suitable for various screen sizes and installation environments. The lenses include the FL-701, SL-712, ML-713, LL-704 and UL-705.
The 8000+ Series models are embedded with control capabilities compatible with Crestron Connected, AMX Device Discovery and Extron XTP.
