Ultimate projectors from Hitachi at ISE11 January 2011
Hitachi Digital Media Group will be using ISE to introduce European audiences to a number of new models in the Ultimate Short Throw range of LCD projectors, as well as what the company says are several innovative projection concepts. The Hitachi stand will feature a number of demonstration zones such as commercial, education and entertainment that address the application, solution and technology requirements of specific user groups. According to the company, scheduled demonstrations will also provide an opportunity for visitors to the stand to see the ease and precision with which the new Ultimate models are installed.
“In addition to giving European customers the first chance to see some of the recently announced models in the new Ultimate Short Throw family in a series of real life demonstration scenarios, the Hitachi stand will also feature a glimpse of the future with some yet to be announced models and a range of innovative projection concepts,” said Axel Kutschke, senior manager, presentation products for Hitachi Digital Media Group. “The emphasis is on how customers use Hitachi projectors in the real world of commerce, education and entertainment which is why we have so many application and installation demonstrations. Having said that, we will be announcing our first and much talked about interactive projector, which will also be demonstrated on the stand.”
In the education zone, the latest interactive whiteboard applications will be on show together with a demonstration of 3D projection. In the entertainment zone there will be a racing simulator demo. Both of these, says Hitachi, will highlight the capability of the new Ultimate Short Throw models.
In addition to the Ultimate Short Throw models there will also be other demonstrations including an example of stacked general purpose projectors providing double or quadruple brightness levels, as well as the Full HD+ CP-WUX645N. A range of alternative connectivity technologies will also be on show which Hitachi says provide users with new ways of connecting to projectors with other commonly used technologies.
For the first time, Hitachi will also be showing what it describes as an innovative, low power LED projector.
