Hitachi CP-EX250 – easy presenting for beginners

Hitachi CPEX 250

The Hitachi CP-EX250 is a presentation projector with a wide range of connection options and true colours due to its LCD technology.

Whether in the office, in boardroom or in schools – the Hitachi CP-EX250 projector always cuts a fine figure. Its LCD technology guarantees an authentic colour display. Its Auto Eco Mode is useful and the projector will automatically adapt according to the ambient light situation. The Hitachi ImageCare function is beneficial as well. And the keystone correction of +/- 30 degrees makes it very easy to set the projector up. You can choose from different colour modes depending on the surface colour you are projecting to, for example a school blackboard.

The LDC projector has a XGA resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels in a 4:3 format and a brightness of 2700 lumens. The contrast level of 2000:1 is good as well, as the Hitachi CP-EX250 review points out. A fan noise of only 29 dB in Eco mode means that you will not be disturbed by excessive background noise.

For a business projector the Hitachi CP-EX250 offers a good range of connection options. There is one digital HDMI connection and two VGA in connections (one can be switch to VGA out). This enables you to loop through the VGA signal. The built-in 1W speaker can be used via audio in and passed via audio output. Older VCRs can be connected via composite video and you can control the projector via RS232 .

The Hitachi CP-EX250’s lens can project an image of 2m width from a distance of 300 to 360cm.

Accessories include a power cable, VGA cable, remote control with batteries and manual.

In summary, the Hitachi projector is a good assistant for your presentation and will never let you down with its range of connections. The Hitachi CP-EX250 price is equally convincing.
