Hitachi CP-X8160 overview

  • 1Description

The Hitachi CP-X8160 XGA LCD Projector provides 6000 ANSI lumens of brightness, and with such projection power, the CP-X8160 can adapt to any environment, from conference rooms and lecture theaters, to museums or anywhere requiring a creative solution.

Its 0.63" 3LCD imaging panels (the part that creates the image) deliver 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-X8160. Those images can be in a wide variety of formats. Of course, the CP-X8160 can project in 720p, 1080i and 1080p high definition.

The beamer features a 1024 x 768 resolution, a 3000:1 contrast ratio, and with a wide range of optional lenses, the CP-X8160 will always give you a bright, vivid image when you need it most.

If you are working in a noisy environment, no problem, your CP-X8160 won't be part of the problem. Its fan noise is a mere 38 dB in standard mode and in eco mode it runs at 31 dB. Its international credentials are equally impressive. It can project images in the NTSC, PAL, SECAM, PAL-M, PAL-N and NTSC4.43 video formats and it has a 100 to 240VAC, 50/60 Hz power supply.

No matter where you use it, you will be pleasantly surprised at how much of a powerhouse the CP-X8160 really is. If you need to display a movie on a screen or show off a presentation you created, just plug one end of a USB cable (available separately) into your laptop and the other into the projector's USB type B port and you're no longer tied to your computer when presenting.

A sophisticated, innovative technology that utilizes three 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 Features
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
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
Get the highest quality image by connecting the latest in A/V equipment to the projector with HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
Long Lamp Life
Using eco mode, lamp life is extended to more than 6000 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 projectors are 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 Feature
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
Ultra Quiet
With a low noise level of 29dB, 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
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
Audio Pass Through
When all you need is sound and not pictures, this convenient feature lets you hear the projector's speakers whilst the rest is on stand-by - helping to preserve lamp life
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

    Hitachi CP-X8160 reviews

    CP-X8160 XGA LCD Projector is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Should have Been 4stars I would like to give this unit 4stars because it is a huge bang-for-your-buck projector, but unfortunately it did not work correctly out of the box. I assume this is a one-off problem, but upon startup the lamp light flashed red, power button steady red and the LCD flashed COVER. Problem was the microswitch that signals the projector that the lamp cover is securely installed. Had to manipulate the cover to get the switch to activate. This unit is replacing our church's ceiling mounted CP-X605 (4000lumens) which we have been very happy with over the past 8yrs. Even though it is considerably larger it is a little lighter than our 605. Its center of mass is near the center of the unit. So far (only a few hours of use) we're happy with this unit and hope it stands up to Hitachi's longevity of use. We used the CP-X401 for 6yrs and are equally happy with this unit. If you need two VGA inputs get a RGBHV (5 BNC male) to VGA adapter (see below). Typically we use projector for presenting song lyrics from EasyWorship, PowerPoint presentations and videos. We use an iMac 21 running Win7. (Awaiting long-promised EasyWorship Mac version release). Also, I can confirm that the included remote has a stereo mini input to cable connect the remote to the projector. Especially useful where line-of-site IR won't work.
