San Francisco, California, September 23, 2014 – Looking to bolster its technology offerings for its main campus, the City College of San Francisco recently installed multiple Hitachi projectors of various models, highlighted by the CP-AW312WN ultra short throw projector. In addition, the College now features the Hitachi CP-WX8255, CP-WX8240 and CP-X3030WN models. Thanks to their reliability and ease of use, the Hitachi projectors have met and exceeded the needs of the College’s faculty, staff and students.

The City College of San Francisco’s main campus has 11 buildings with classrooms and nine other “learning centers” that range in variety from classrooms at the San Francisco International Airport to a 14-story building in San Francisco’s Financial District that serves approximately 70,000 students. To date, the projectors have been installed in lecture halls, classrooms, and group study rooms. However, the college has a goal of installing projectors in every classroom to aid instruction and student presentations. Faculty, students and staff will be operating the projectors through a wall-mounted “PIXIE” control panel.

Jerome Fong, audiovisual technician for the City College of San Francisco, assisted in the selection, purchase and installation of the projectors. He also oversees maintenance and management of the equipment. “There is a need to keep up with technology and it is not practical to support legacy AV equipment anymore,” Mr. Fong said. “The upgrade with Hitachi projectors has been very successful and we are looking forward to adding more units in the future. ”
