Short on space? Hitachi is combining a lot of functionality into its new CP-AW2519N Interactive Projector.
The company has designed the CP-AW2519N for rooms where space is limited. It has an ultra-short-throw lens, which means it can be mounted very close to a wall or projection surface. Despite the setup, though, there’s no need to worry about obstructions, shadows or bright lights shining in your face. It even comes with a stand so the projector can be placed on a tabletop.
Of course, it’s not the type of device that needs to stretch out, either. Hitachi says that the CP-AW2519N has a throw distance of 10 inches from the edge of the projector for an 80-inch (16:10) diagonal image.
In case you’re still worried about where to put a projector, know that this option may be able to free up a little space as well. See, it packs in the functionality of an interactive whiteboard. No additional hardware is needed. It has Hitachi’s own StarBoard software built in, which works on Mac and PC platforms.
The CP-AW2519N features an easy menu system, including an Input Source Naming feature for input sources. It also has My Memory, My Screen and My Buttons options, for fast, one-touch access to frequently used functions and sources.
Other features on the CP-AW2519N include 2,500 ANSI lumens of brightness, a WXGA resolution, an RJ-45 Ethernet jack, a built-in speaker, and a 10-watt amplifier. It also has an HDMI input, for an easy, one-cable connection.
