Hitachi CP-A100 review

 

We were interested in Hitachi's CP-A100 projector because it's an attempt to do something a bit different.

With impressive wide-throw optics, a cable tidy panel and good video quality, the Hitachi CP-A100 also enjoys good brightness, an accessible menu system and a nice. remote. Down sides? Well, the Hitachi CP-A100 is pretty big and quite bulky, and the...

Hitachi CP-A100

 

On the contrary, the CP-A100 packs its optics into as sleek a design as I've ever seen for a projector. It's both smaller and lighter than its competition, at 5.2 by 15.6 by 14 inches (HWD) and 12.8 pounds. And it adds some impressive functional design...

Ultra-short throw, with 98-inch diagonal image at 15 inches from screen. Bright image. Vibrant colors for presentations

Doesn't handle video as well as it handles computer input

In a category—that of the ultra-short-throw projector—that's populated with impressive products, the Hitachi CP-A100 stands out.

The CP-A100 is a great solution for classrooms and conference rooms where a large screen size is not needed, space is at a premium and keeping both the projector and wiring out of the way is desirable. The CP-A100 fares well when compared with other...

Product Specifications

The revolutionary CP-A100 3LCD projector features a very short throw distance, eliminating the problem of presenters obstructing the projected image by standing in front of the screen. Additionally, the CP-A100 offers networking capability, allowing multiple projectors to be controlled and monitored from a single location. The CP-A100 boasts an extremely short throw distance; at 1.4 feet you can project a 60 inch image. This not only prevents image obstruction, but also means there are no shadows interfering with the image and no light in the presenter's face. The versatile CP-A100 can be placed vertically as well as horizontally, as well as inverted for ceiling mount applications, making positioning of the projector more convenient. Adding to the user's convenience is the network connectivity of the CP-A100, which allows for simultaneous monitoring and control of several projectors from a remote location. This is particularly beneficial in schools and large corporate environments, where projectors are located throughout a facility and the monitoring of each projector is a time-consuming ordeal. With the benefits of networking technology, a technician can monitor details such as lamp life for each projector from his / her computer. Additionally, the CP-A100's performance stands alone among competitive models. It offers a brightness of 2,500 ANSI lumens, XGA resolution and a 500:1 contrast ratio. The CP-A100 addresses the issue of security with functions such as multilevel PIN locks, a security bar and a Kensington slot. Moreover, the CP-A100 is easy to use, featuring advanced connectivity and proprietary Hitachi functions. The CP-A100's e-shot feature allows users to transfer up to four still images from a computer to the projector. Easy maintenance is another attractive function of the CP-A100, as its lamp door is on top of the model, and the filter is located on the back, allowing for easy access. The CP-A100 offers additional versatility with its whiteboard, blackboard or day time modes.
