Hitachi Unveils World’s Smallest Short-Focus Projector
Hitachi has announced today that the company will be adding two new members to the current short-focus projector lineup. The two new models, the CP-A300NJ and the CP-AW250NJ, represent Hitachi’s solution to build the world’s smallest and lightest short-focus projectors. Both devices weigh just over eight pounds and measure out to be W345×H85×D303mm.
The company claims that the CP-A300NJ can produce 80-inch pictures from 23cm away, and the CP-AW250NJ can produce the same massive image just 26cm away. The CP-A300NJ produces a 1024 x 768 resolution image with a brightness rating of 3,000 lumens. It’s “younger brother”, the 250NJ produces a 1280 x 800 resolution image with a brightness of 2,500 lumens. Each model features 2xD-Sub ports, and HDM interface, USB port, S-Video port, and a 10 watt mono speaker. Hitachi expects to sell these beautiful projectors in Japan on May 5th, 2011 with an open price model.
These short-focus projectors could be the solution for having business presentations without having to lug heavy and bulky equipment. As technology shrinks, and projectors get smaller, more and more people are able to use the technology in a mobile way. It would be interesting to see students able to bring projectors with them to class, and perhaps it even becoming the norm in society.
