Hitachi's new iPJ-AW250N projector has already been labelled the 'ultimate interactive LCD projector' by some industry experts.

The innovative model delivers a full interactive experience on any flat surface and provides a comprehensive set of features that give the projector a strong advantage for use in educational and corporate scenarios.

Hitachi's head of presentation products, Axel Kutsche, said the iPJ-AW250N provided a real alternative to existing complex, bulky or compromised solutions.

"By embedding full interactive capability with all of the features of the new Ultimate Short Throw models, we are able to offer a high performance solution that works on any wall or with existing standard whiteboards," he explained.

"In bringing interactivity to existing meeting and classroom facilities to improve productivity and learning, Hitachi is demonstrating its continued commitment to innovation by combining class leading technologies and solutions to meet growing market trends."

The interactivity is enabled through an infrared and ultrasonic sensor that work together to interpret real world movements into virtual instructions.

The WXGA iPJ-AW250N is remarkably compact and light thanks to the outstanding design of the Ultimate Show Throw models, and is capable of generating 2,500 lumens of brightness with a 2,000:1 contrast ratio.
