Hitachi CP-WX8240: Picture 1 regular

About Hitachi CP-WX8240

The Hitachi CP-WX8240 HD LCD Projector has 4000 ANSI lumens of projection power at a 3000:1 contrast ratio, so it will give you a fine image, even when you can't achieve theater-level darkness. Its 3LCD, 3-chip technology (the part that creates the image) delivers sharper and brighter pictures with superior grayscale detail. Smooth, seamless color combined with an unparalleled grayscale range delivers incredible detail to every image displayed by the CP-WX8240.

Those images can be in a wide variety of formats. Of course, the CP-WX8240 can project in 720p, 1080i and 1080p high definition. Its international credentials are equally impressive. It can project images in the NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N and SECAM video formats and it has a 100 to 240V AC 50/60 Hz power supply. This projector has a DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) mode, which reproduces images with an advanced grayscale level. This mode is ideal for viewing grayscale medical images such as X-rays and for training and educational purposes.

The CP-WX8240 makes your audience's life easier, too. It can display all four closed captioning channels as well as all four text channels from programming sources that provide CC. Closed captioning is useful not only for the hard of hearing but also for people learning English as a second language and for everybody when you have to project in a noisy environment like gyms or trade shows.

If you are working in a noisy environment, your CP-WX8240 won't be part of the problem for another reason. Its fan noise is a mere 35 dB in standard mode and in eco mode it runs at 29 dB; literally quieter than a whispered conversation.

  • 3LCD: A sophisticated, innovative technology that utilizes 3 chips to deliver vibrant, true-to-life and consistent images for the most demanding audiences
  • Hybrid Filter: The Hybrid Filter lasts for more than 4000 hours, ten times longer than conventional filters. This extension in maintenance intervals reduces the overall cost of ownership significantly
  • Security: Advanced security features include Multi-Level PIN-Lock, Transition Detector, steel security bar, Kensington Lock and prominent security labels
  • Blackboard/Whiteboard Mode: Projecting onto colored or shiny backgrounds can make images appear either dull or uncomfortably bright. This mode ensures optimal brightness whether the screen is black, green or shiny white
  • Low TCO: Significantly extended maintenance intervals resulting from long-life parts reduces the total cost of ownership
  • Optional Lenses: Installations are more flexible with a range of optional bayonet lenses. Choose from Fixed Short, Short, Long and Ultra Long throw lenses, designed to suit different requirements
  • PC-less Presentations: Simply plug in a memory stick, SD card, or even a portable hard disk drive and present without the need of a laptop
  • Vertical Projection: Images can be projected at 90 degrees up or down, opening up a whole new range of applications
  • Advanced Networking: Manage and control multiple projectors over LAN. Turn the projector on and off, schedule email alerts and monitor projectors all via the network
  • Wireless Networking: Wireless networking offers quick, easy and secure network access. Browser based software provides easy management, control and monitoring of networked projectors
  • AMX Device Discovery: When integrated with an AMX Controller, the relevant communication modules and drivers are downloaded to the projector automatically
  • HDMI: Get the highest quality image by connecting the latest in A/V equipment to the projector with HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
  • Long Life Lamp: Using Eco Mode, lamp life is extended to more than 6,000 hours - equivalent to the projector being used for three hours a day over a period of ten years
  • Template Function: This unique Hitachi feature allows you to project different patterns of lines and grids onto a whiteboard, blackboard or flip chart, making writing and drawing easier
  • Virtually Maintenance Free: Hitachi projector is designed to be easy to use and require minimal maintenance. Long-life parts significantly extend the maintenance intervals, reducing cost and any inconvenience
  • Daytime Mode: It can be harder to see a projected picture when the sun is shining brightly. Projections are always vivid and colorful in a bright environment with Daytime Mode
  • Quick On/Off: Plug in, turn on and present. The Quick On/Off feature and automatic resolution equals fast set-up
  • Input Source Naming: Personalize devices and inputs to the projector - for example, re-name a device input to "Tom's Laptop" for easy recognition
  • Ultra Quiet: With a low noise level of 29 dB in the latest models, the internal fan is one of the quietest in its class. The audience will hear the presenter, not the operating noise of the projector
  • My Button: Assign custom functions or common tasks to a programmable button on your remote control
  • Messenger: Send text messages and announcements to multiple, networked projectors at the same time. This is ideal for projecting daily work schedules and university campus notifications to multiple classrooms simultaneously
  • Centralized Reporting Function: Using a single PC, create HTML reports for a group of networked projectors to simplify maintenance requirements
  • Vertical Keystone Correction: Correct misaligned images automatically with vertical keystone correction
  • Progressive Scan: Typically with moving images, each frame of video is shown in two halves - odd lines and even lines. Progressive Scan enables every line of a video frame to be displayed simultaneously resulting in crisp, smooth motion and reduced flicker and judder
  • On Screen Display (OSD): The new menu is much easier to use. Navigating through the different options is easier, whilst settings are clearly named
