Maricopa County Schools Rely on Hitachi’s OneVision to Provide the Best Classrooms for Students

Maricopa County, Arizona, April 11, 2017 – The Maricopa County Community College District in Arizona consists of 10 community colleges located in the Valley of the Sun. Of those 10 schools, seven are a part of the Hitachi OneVision reward program for higher education. Mike Poplin of Phoenix College, Senadz Lubovac of GateWay Community College, Justin Johnston of Scottsdale Community College and Dave Topping from Estrella Mountain Community College use Hitachi and the OneVision program throughout their schools for the reliability, service features, and convenient HDBaseT connectivity technology.

The Hitachi OneVision Program for higher education offers colleges and universities direct access to sales and service representatives, specialized promotions, advanced replacement, specialized pricing, five-year projector warranty, one-year lamp warranty and purchasing rewards, including a 'Buy Ten Projectors Get a Projector Free,' or ‘Buy Three Projectors Get a Lamp Free’ special offers.

The representatives from Scottsdale Community College, GateWay Community College, Phoenix College and Estrella Mountain Community College shared their thoughts about the benefits of being a OneVision Program member:

“I chose Hitachi because of the reliability of the product,” says Justin Johnston, Director of College Technology at Scottsdale Community College. “I’ve used Hitachi for many years and across many different campuses. I’ve been in the A/V industry for quite a long time, so reliability is number one.”

Senadz Lubovac, AV Coordinator at GateWay Community College says, “The main piece of technology in a classroom is the projector. Hitachi is not only one of the most affordable manufacturers, they give us the best quality and the best color projection, the lowest maintenance, and the best warranty available for a device like this.”

“We have five-year warranties on all of these projectors,” says Mike Poplin, Chief Customer Officer, Phoenix College. “But they’ve lasted so well for us, we really haven’t had to rely on the warranty for service and support.”

Dave Topping, Media Service Coordinator, Estrella Mountain Community College says, “One thing that we have really taken advantage of is HDBaseT connectivity, and being able to send our video signal on one cable up to the projector. Hitachi has stayed on the forefront of that technology, and tying it to our control systems is a snap.”
