Sorry Hitachi, we really are, but there's no way consumers can squeeze a satisfactory amount of fun out of a SXGA+ projector. In fairness, the 3LCD CP-SX635 does boast a brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens for showing up in even dimly lit areas, but the lack of 1080p just leaves us squarely on the fence. For those who aren't resolution junkies, this one also includes four optional lenses for various throw distances, a 2,000-hour hybrid filter, an inbuilt 16-watt speaker, network control capability and an HDMI input. Too bad we're not even given a price to ponder, huh? The full release is just past the break.
Hitachi CP-SX635 3LCD Projector Offers SXGA+ Resolution And Ease Of Installation
-- The CP-SX635 has been developed for use in applications such as simulator environments, where high brightness and detail are needed--
CHULA VISTA, Calif., January 28, 2009 - Bringing SXGA+ resolution and advanced functionality to applications where high brightness and detail are important, Hitachi Home Electronics (America), Inc., Business Group today announced the introduction of the CP-SX635 3LCD projector. The CP-SX635 is designed for environments such as simulator projects, offering a brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens and four optional lenses for various throw distances.
The CP-SX635 offers a 2,000-hour hybrid filter, making maintenance and cleaning much less frequent. The lens shift option makes the CP-SX635 very easy to install. Additionally, 16 watts of audio provide ample sound for most applications, while the audio pass-through function allows users to put the projector in standby mode when only audio is needed.
Additionally, the CP-SX635 model can also be remotely controlled and maintained through a LAN network connection, providing the ability to network, control and maintain the projectors remotely. The network functionality also makes it easy to control multiple projectors in different rooms and to monitor for functions such as remaining lamp life.
The CP-SX635 projector also offers functions proprietary to Hitachi such as My Screen, My Memory and My Button as well as input source naming and blackboard/whiteboard/daytime modes. Security features include a PIN lock, Kensington slot and transition detector. Lastly, the CP-SX635 offers full connectivity including a HDMI input.
"The introduction of the CP-SX635 3LCD projector demonstrates Hitachi's continued commitment to reliability, versatility and unmatched performance," said John Glad, product manager, Hitachi Home Electronics (America), Inc., Business Group.
