Hitachi has assembled what is widely regarded as the ideal interactive AV teaching system in the CP-DW10N+FX-DUO-88W Wide Bundle Solution.
The CP-DW10N Short Throw 3LCD Projector is a valuable addition to any team that needs to communicate ideas with a minimum of time wasted on setup and maintenance. Quick Start and Instant Off plus digital keystone correction and input source naming make setup a snap. Maintenance too is a snap. The fan filter can go up to 4000 hours between cleanings or replacement and it's conveniently located. The projector bulb can last for 3000 hours in Normal mode and up to 4000 hours in Whisper mode.
The CP-DW10N's short throw lens allows you to project a large image a relatively short distance from the screen. For example, you can project an 80 inch diagonally measured picture from just 34 inches.
This projector features 2000 ANSI lumens of brightness, digital zoom and a widescreen 16:10 aspect ratio that's also compatible with 4:3 images. In fact, compatibility is a key advantage of the CP-DW10N. It has a world power supply (100 - 240 V AC at 50/60 Hz) and it's compatible with all three of the world's video standards (North America's NTSC plus PAL and SECAM). And of course it's HDTV compatible too, up to 1080p.
The CP-DW10N also has 2:3 pulldown. Because motion pictures are filmed at 24 frames per second (fps) and video is recorded at 30 fps, translating film to video has always been problematic. The solution better projectors use is 2:3 pulldown. Without boring you with technobabble let's just say it's one of the more elegant solutions developed. Another one of the CP-DW10N's advanced features is progressive scan, which makes DVDs look almost like Blu-ray discs. Plug your CP-DW10N into your LAN via its RJ45 jack and you can remotely monitor and control it from anywhere on your local network or across the Internet. You can even have it email you when it detects a fault or the projector lamp is nearing the end of its life.
If you keep the projector in one place you'll appreciate its anti-theft features like PIN lock, MyScreen lock, keypad lock and a Kensington compatible lock slot for an optional Kensington Lock. A transition detector can tell if the projector has been moved and refuse to turn on unless the correct password is entered.
The Hitachi StarBoard FX-DUO-88W-M is an 88" digital whiteboard designed to deliver the most seamless interactive experience in the industry. Gone are the days of pen-driven or stylus and finger controlled technology with an obtrusive overlaying surface. The FX-DUO-88W-M looks and feels like a classic whiteboard! By using two sophisticated CMOS sensors located in the top corners, the StarBoard can sense where users are touching. The result is a more comfortable and interactive experience with less parts to lose or break. Features such as multi-touch manipulation, overhead quick start buttons, and the ability to have multiple users at once open the unit up to virtually limitless possibilities.
The included Easiteach Software is a multi-language teaching tool that works with virtually all interactive whiteboards, slates, projectors and presenters. The system has a media bank of over 4500 curriculum based sources and more than 70 videos. Capabilities include Text-to-Speech, Handwriting and Shape Recognition, Widget Bank, as well as math and language tools.
Finally, the bundle includes a Premier Short Throw Mount which is ideal for maximizing floor space, especially in tight quarters as well as preventing audience intrusion into the projector's beam.
