Underscoring the flexibility and ease of use of the Hitachi America CP-X995 series LCD projector, New York City's leading alternative art gallery, Exit Art, has been using a CP-X995 series to display video content for a new public art program. On exhibit since May 1, 2004, the gallery's new program uses works of art to examine how definitions of terror are shaped by individual and collective visions, experiences, memories and histories.
The CP-X995 series model is used to display the exhibit's video pieces, which add up to more than four hours of content. Additionally, the projector is connected to the Internet to periodically show pieces on the Web, and is also being used in conjunction with panel discussions held by the artists. "The CP-X995 series has performed exceptionally well for us during this exhibit," said Exit Art associate curator Jodi Hanel. "It has proven to be incredibly flexible and the picture is always crystal-clear. We've had no problem moving between video, computer-based content, and PowerPoints."
The CP-X995 series projector is an ideal solution for presenters who require maximum brightness or for use in large venues. In addition to a brightness of 4,500 lumens, the CP-X995 series features Motion Adaptive Progressive Scan Technology, XGA resolution and a 300:1 contrast ratio, providing exceptional video quality along with crisp images. Furthermore, the CP-X995 series is HDTV compatible and features an anamorphic 16:9 aspect ratio for added video options.
In addition, the projector's controls are intuitive enough that it can be operated by anyone, saving a lot of time and effort on the user's part. "We had it up and running very quickly, and it's the simplest device to use," Hanell added. "Since the video content is running continually throughout the course of the day, it's important that anyone working here can be able to operate the equipment."
"We're proud to have our CP-X995 series projector on display at one of the premier art programs in New York City," says Pete Denes, director of sales for Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division. "The flexibility of our projectors allows for many creative uses, and it is a pleasure to see that Exit Art is getting the most out of their presentation equipment.
