SYDNEY, NSW: Hitachi Australia is currently supporting the Sydney Festival by donating six leading edge LCD projectors to one of the main performance venues.
The furnished projectors are housed at the Seymour Centre in Sydney’s university precinct, and are being used to transform the otherwise prosaic space into a collage of movies, images and advertisements.
Hitachi Australia general manager, digital technology solutions group, Dipak Kumar, said it was an honour to be part of the Sydney Festival.
“It is a privilege to be involved with Sydney Festival in this way, the high calibre of technology will help to ensure the highest levels of audience enjoyment,” said Kumar. “Hitachi is pleased to provide projectors that are of the highest quality and performance to a great event that will be appreciated by audiences, residents and tourists.”
In other Hitachi projector news, the Japanese supplier today announced the release of the CP-WX410. This is Hitachi’s first widescreen format LCD projector to feature 3,000 ANSI lumens.
Features include 1280 by 800 colour pixels, 16:10 widescreen image and a hybrid filter capable of 4,000 hours in normal usage.
“The CP-WX410 is one of our most impressive projectors to date. By combining convenient widescreen and HD-ready capabilities with its portability, our latest LCD projector delivers extremely high performance within both business and educational environments,” said Hitachi product manager, digital presentation solutions, Bill Christoforou.
