Hitachi Meets Market Demands with New Full-Featured Projector Doubling the Average Lamp Life

NAB 2003 – LAS VEGAS, NV – – April 7, 2003 – Hitachi America, Ltd., a subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., Tokyo, Japan (NYSE: HIT), today announced the availability of the CP-X870W, the newest addition to its conference room and fixed installation projector product line. The CP-X870W is designed for long-hour operations and offers a lamp life of up to 4,000 hours, whereas a typical projector provides only 2,000. Additionally, its overall component lifetime is roughly double that of conventional projectors, offering a substantially lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Featuring native XGA resolution, the 13-pound CP-X870W also provides 2,000 ANSI lumens and a contrast ratio of 400:1, enabling the projector to produce vivid and crisp images, even in large, light-filled conference rooms and classrooms.

“One of the most important considerations customers look for when purchasing a multimedia projector is the length of lamp life. In order to reduce replacement costs for lamps, it’s important to invest in a projector that uses power wisely,” said Pete Denes, director of sales for Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division. “This is precisely why we are proud to introduce the CP-X870W to the market, and to be able to offer our customers with a low-maintenance, full-featured projector option.”
