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.
