January 28, 2013 | by Jessica Camerato

Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division, Business Solutions Group has introduced its first-ever DLP projectors, which combine DLP image quality with performance and energy-saving features.

The projectors incorporate Texas Instruments 1-chip DLP technology to deliver images with higher contrast and brightness (CP-DX300: 3,000 lumens; CP-DX250: 2,500 lumens), as Texas Instruments BrilliantColor technology offers color processing. TI’s Wall Color Correction also enables more accurate colors.

The CP-DX300 and CP-DX250 include pre-set bright, presentation, cinema, game, and RGB picture modes, as well as a user mode with fully adjustable image parameters. The Intelligent Eco Mode automatically changes the brightness of the lamp according to the brightness level of the screen, and the 33dB operating level is reduced to 29dB in that mode.

The projectors measure approximately 10.4 x 8.8 x 3.2 inches, weigh 4.9 pounds, and offer a maximum diagonal image of 40 inches from a distance of 59 inches. They are also 3D capable and feature XGA resolution.

Both models provide HDMI, two computer in, composite and S-video inputs, as well as audio inputs and outputs and a computer monitor output. Both also feature a built-in 2W speaker and an RS-232C port.

“More professional users are moving to DLP projectors, and the time is right for us to enter this growing market segment with these entry-model DLP products that incorporate Hitachi’s high standards of performance and value,” says John Glad, product manager, Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division, Business Solutions Group. “The new CP-DX300 and CP-DX250 offer all the ease of use, dependable operation and flexibility customers have come to expect from Hitachi projectors along with the improved image quality DLP provides.”
