What you Need to Know about the Hitachi Short Throw Series

With so many uses, short throw projectors are rapidly growing in popularity. They can be ideal for traveling businessmen who don’t want the fuss of figuring out the best spot to set up a projector or used for classrooms and conference rooms where presenters don’t want people walking between the screen and the projector, blocking the image. The Hitachi Short Throw Series offers ultra-short throw units in both 4:3 and widescreen versions.

Why Go Short Throw?

Ever been in the middle of a presentation when someone accidentally moves in front of the projector or has to walk right in the middle to get to the bathroom? It seems destined to happen every time.

Shadow Blocking Projector

n. The first is avoiding the awkward moments when people walk in between the projector and screen, throwing shadows on the presentation and distracting the audience. The second benefit is when there is no space for a projector to be mounted at the normal distance away or if you are traveling and can’t mount the projector anywhere but up close. NEC has perfected the short throw model, which is ideal for education (including interactive white boards), corporate offices, and for the traveling businessman.

Solving the Problem of Projectors and Bright Rooms

It seems that more and more schools are being built with big windows and better lighting. This theoretically creates a better environment for increasing moods and productivity. Unfortunately, copious amounts of ambient light can be a projectors Achilles heel and a presenter’s nightmare. Many standard classrooms don’t come with a dimmer or the ability to control the amount of ambient light shining in the room. Because of this, the average projector with low lumen output can be easily outshined. Luckily, Hitachi has designed its Collegiate Series projectors with enough lumens to outshine most ambient light. The Hitachi CP-X5022WN, for example, is an LCD projector with a total of 5,000 ANSI lumens of brightness (if you are not sure how bright that is, imagine 5,000 birthday candles lighting up your room!). The high lumen count combined with 1024×768 resolution has the ability to transform classrooms, auditoriums, and lecture halls into powerful learning centers regardless of ambient light. So if you are battling low lumen projectors and bright rooms, consider one of Hitachi’s high-lumen Collegiate Series projectors.
