Hitachi CP-X253 3LCD Video Projector

Hitachi CP-X253 Video Projector

Hitachi CP-X253 MSRP: $1,795


The Hitachi CP-X253 LCD projector weighs only 3.9 pounds, with 2,000 lumens brightness and a wide-angle lens. The CP-X253 addresses a number of concerns for educators, including ease of use, security and performance. It features two RGB inputs and one RGB output, one audio output and a one-watt internal speaker. The CP-X253 also features a built-in transition detector that prevents potential thieves from removing the projector from a ceiling mount without entering the correct PIN code.

Additionally, the wide-angle lens enables short-throw capabilities, allowing closer setup of the projector to the screen. This eliminates the common problem of obstructing the image by walking in front of the projector. The CP-X253 is HDTV theater-ready and offers both blackboard and whiteboard modes. The lamp life is approximately 3,000 hours in Whisper Mode. Composite/S-Video inputs are included, as is a remote control and soft case.
