Hitachi extends maintenance-free range of multi-purpose LCD projectors for the education market

Hitachi ED-X31

Hitachi Digital Media Group announced the launch of the new ED-X31 and ED-X33 projectors. The two models replace the existing highly popular ED-X30 and ED-X32 models, but bring the latest in maintenance free design and technology as used in the recently updated general purpose range. Like the newly available CP-X306, CP-X401W, CP-WX410 and CP-X467W, the ED-X31 and ED-X33 feature a new hybrid filter and a long life lamp. This almost halves the cost of ownership over the lifetime of these projectors by extending the maintenance interval to at least 4000 hours in normal usage conditions.

“With the innovation of the hybrid filter and the long life lamp extending scheduled maintenance intervals to 4000 hours, Hitachi is now offering our education customers the same extremely low cost of ownership enjoyed by owners of our latest general purpose projectors,” said Axel Kutschke, Senior Manager, Presentation Products for Hitachi Digital Media Group. “By offering all the security, performance and ease of use required by the education market together with the latest advances from our commercial projectors, the ED-X31 and ED-X33 offer schools outstanding lifetime value and the best of both worlds.”

While the entire family of multi-purpose LCD projectors is designed to meet the projection requirements of a wide range of business and learning environments, the ED-X31 and ED-X33 are specifically adapted to cater for the needs of the education market. With security of high importance the ED-X31 and ED-X33 score highly in all theft protection categories. In addition to the transition detector, multi-level PIN locks, the tamper-proof security label, Kensington lock point and the enhanced security bar that now accepts a larger chain, the bright orange finish of the ED-X31 acts as a further theft deterrent.

Ease of use is also a characteristic of these projectors. Teachers love popular Hitachi functionality such as input source naming, resolution presets, whiteboard, blackboard and greenboard modes and the IR remote frequency change which make the models easy to use in a high pressure classroom environment. The “My Button” and new “My Text” features on the new remote control also make it easy for them to customise the projector for specific needs.

Both new models operate at a quiet 29dB and offer education standard brightness levels of 1600 ANSI Lumens, inline with BECTA guidelines concerning health and safety for frequent users. As well as the internal 7W speaker which is powerful enough for many classrooms, the new models also incorporate the audio pass through feature which allows teachers to use external speakers through the projectors audio system, conserving power and lamp life when only sound is needed.

The Hitachi ED-X31 and ED-X33 are available across Europe in November 2008, while the CP-X306, CP-X401 and the CP-WX410 are available immediately. The CP-X467W will also be available in November 2008.
