SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, www.hitachi.us, February 14, 2007–Bringing even greater flexibility and connectivity to traveling professionals, Hitachi America, Ltd., Ubiquitous Platform Systems Division has introduced the CPX2 3LCD projector. The CPX2 expands on the success of its predecessor, the CPX1, by adding networking functionality and wireless connectivity.

With a brightness of 2,000 ANSI lumens and a light weight of 3.9 pounds, the CPX2 3LCD projector provides unmatched versatility with no sacrifice in performance. An SD slot supports both wireless connection and PC-less presentation. Additionally, the CPX2´s wide-angle lens allows presenters to place the projector close to the screen, keeping obstruction of the image to a minimum.
The CPX2 boasts XGA resolution and a contrast ratio of 500:1. Adding to the user´s convenience are advanced features exclusive to Hitachi projectors such as My Screen, My Memory and My Button. A built-in 1W speaker means no need for external audio devices, while the projector itself maintains a low noise level of 29 dB in Whisper Mode. The CPX2 also addresses security concerns by offering a transition detector, Kensington lock and PIN lock protection.

"For professionals on the move, portability is as much a concern as connectivity," said Pete Denes, vice president of sales, Hitachi America, Ltd., Ubiquitous Business Platform Systems Division, Business Group. "With the introduction of the CPX2, Hitachi continues to lead the way in providing leading-edge, yet intuitive, presentation solutions."
