Hitachi Introduces CP-DW10N+FXDUO88W Wide Bundle Solution

Bundle Offers All-In-One Solution For Education And Corporate Environments

Chula Vista, California, January 25, 2010 – Hitachi America, Ltd. today announced its new CP-DW10N+FXDUO88W Wide Bundle, offering a complete solution for system integrators, educators, and presenters.

The CP-DW10N+FXDUO88W Wide Bundle combines the Hitachi CP-DW10N short-throw projector, the Hitachi FXDUO 88-inch wide interactive whiteboard, and a custom-designed Premier wall mount all into one seamless solution. Mounted on the wall arm at the top of the board, the CP-DW10N’s short-throw capability greatly reduces the shadow cast on the FXDUO88W from the presenter and offers a better viewing experience for students and audiences. Offered now as a complete package, the bundle is a great option for education and corporate environments

“We developed the CP-DW10N+FXDUO88W Wide Bundle to offer the best possible interactive experience for presenters and educators,” said John Glad, product manager, Hitachi America, Ltd. “By combining our latest in short-throw projector technology and our revolutionary FXDUO whiteboard with the Premier wall mount, we are ensuring the best experience with a complete Hitachi solution.”

The Hitachi CP-DW10N features a short throw distance of three feet that projects an 80-inch image, eliminating image obstruction in front of the screen. The CP-DW10 projector can be controlled and maintained through a LAN network connection, providing the ability to network, control and maintain the projectors remotely. The network functionality is capable of controlling multiple projectors in different rooms, as well as monitoring for functions such as remaining lamp life.

The FX DUO allows two users to work simultaneously on its surface, providing educators and corporate presenters a whole new range of possibilities. All electronics on the FXDUO interactive whiteboard are contained in a pod located at the top of the unit, keeping the actual surface electronics-free and more durable.
