LAS VEGAS,, June 10, 2002 - Hitachi America, Ltd., a subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., Tokyo, Japan (NYSE: HIT), today announced the ultra-portable CP-S317W and CP-X327W, the latest additions to Hitachi's comprehensive line of multimedia projectors. Feature-rich with a low price point, the projectors are ideal for budget-conscious presenters in the education field, and other industries where high-quality presentations are necessary. The CP-S317W and CP-X327W, which feature SVGA and XGA resolution respectively, will be demonstrated at InfoComm 2002 in Booth #7081 at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas from June 12 - 14, 2002.

"Even though many professional presenters are on a limited budget, it doesn't mean they have to settle for a poor-quality projector," said Pete Denes, director of sales for Hitachi America, Ltd., Computer Division, Visual Display Products. "Hitachi's innovative technology and commitment to high quality is what drives us to create products like the CP-S317W and CP-X327W, both of which provide advanced image quality and product features that truly cater to the customers' specific presentation needs."

High Quality in a Small Footprint As a portable six-pound footprint, the CP-S317W and CP-X327W are packed with several high-quality specifications. While both projectors possess a brightness of 1,500 ANSI lumens and a 300:1 contrast ratio, the CP-X327W features native XGA resolution for added image sharpness and clarity. The CP-S317W provides SVGA resolution at a lower cost, for more budget-conscious presenters.
