Hitachi America has introduced the CP-X2514WN 3LCD projector, which has been upgraded from the previous model with the addition of wireless operation and networking capability.

Designed for medium-size classrooms and boardrooms, the CP-X2514WN delivers 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness with XGA resolution and a 3,000:1 contrast ratio.

The optional wireless capability means laptops and desktop computers do not have to be placed close to the projector as there is no need for cables.

The networking capability allows the projector to be remotely controlled via a LAN network connection. Hitachi’s exclusive PJMan Projector Management software lets users operate and monitor the projector from a remote location, and receive diagnostic information. It also comes with the Campus Notification System so administrators can take control and display pre-stored images to each projector on the network. Meanwhile, the Crestron RoomView software enables administrators to monitor, manage and control devices in different rooms remotely from any computer.

For meetings and lectures in venues where more than one screen is needed, the CP-X2514WN can project the same image to up to 12 different projectors simultaneously. In addition, its Moderator Control Mode lets users network 50 computers to a single projector, with one computer acting as the moderator. The presenter can then use the moderator computer to select and project images from the students’ computers.
