SUMMARY - Hitachi cpx417 3000 ANSI Lumens 3LCD Video Projector:
The Hitachi CP-X417 3LCD projector offers wireless connectivity and networking, allowing end-users to monitor multiple projectors from a remote location. The CP-X417 features built-in networking, allowing for the monitoring and managing of one or more projectors from a remote location. With Hitachi's proprietary PJ Man software, users can easily monitor the status of the projector (or many projectors), as power on/off, input source, lamp/filter hours and condition are all on display. Moreover, the software allows for control over these functions. Additionally, users can schedule power on/off events on an hourly, daily and weekly basis. Events can be applied to an individual or group of Hitachi projectors. Other features such as e-mail alerts for scheduled maintenance or error conditions, as well as password protection, give the user a new level of control at no extra charge.
