WHY CHOOSE ULTRA SHORT THROW?

The Hitachi Short Throw range offers many benefits.
The projector is situated as close to the screen as possible so, along with virtually shadow free projection there is negligible risk of the presenter being blinded by the light beam. For more examples on the various projection solutions the short throw models provide please see below to see how you can benefit from our unique Ultra Short Throw technology.

PRODUCT APPLICATION

A VARIETY OF SOLUTIONS FROM RETAIL TO EXHIBITIONS

With a shorter throw distance, improved image quality and a space saving installation feature, the Ultimate Short Throw projector both enhances the user experience and increases customer interaction. The combination of features allows customers to use projection technology to improve eye-catching window displays, impressive set builds and delicate listed buildings.

Listed Buildings

The smaller size and unobtrusive design will blend seamlessly into any environment. This gives users the ability to create projections in the most impressive surroundings. It can also be wall-mounted, minimising the risk of damage when attaching to high or delicate ceilings. 

 

 

 

False Ceilings

The reduced size and lighter design allows for the projector to be easily wall-mounted for greater versatility in rooms with awkward or high ceilings.

 

 

 

 

 

Rear Projection

Rear projection is ideal for creating the perfect stage backdrop. The technology allows the projector to be placed behind the screen; the image is then reversed and projected back to the audience the correct way. This feature allows performers to stand directly in front of the screen without interference from the projector. 

Window Projection

The perfect combination of features creates the ideal backdrop for window displays or art galleries. Enhanced picture quality, increased shadow reduction and our new Daylight Mode ensure clear, vivid images, even in bright lighting. 

 

 

 

 

 

Maha-Lani is an aesthetic salon operated by Hawaii Relaxation.

Maha-Lani aims to provide mind and body healing through aesthetic treatment and massage, with a Hawaiian theme. For that purpose, music alone was not enough; a more Hawaiian atmosphere had to be created using video. The goal is to create an environment in which customers can relax both mentally and physically as they watch videos while receiving their treatment.

 

The salon intended to show videos using a projector, but encountered several problems along the way. The space where the patients receive treatment is not large enough to be used for video with a normal projector, and patients were often lying face down, so videos had to be projected on the floor instead of on a wall.

Maha-Lani needed a short-throw projector that could display video onto the floor and would not be easily blocked by the shadow of the aesthetician. Hitachi’s CP-A100 Ultra-Short Throw LCD Projector overcomes these difficulties to achieve floor projection.

IDEAL FOR YOUR CLASSROOM

Hove Park School, an 11-18 Languages Specialist School, caters for 1750 students on two large sites. It has a demand for over 100 video projectors in order to deliver an increasingly digitised curriculum with ICT at the heart of a motivating interactive methodology. School managers found many projectors had been installed at just above head height, over 1.5 meters away from the interactive whiteboard. When pupils and teachers interacted with the projected content, they not only cast obscuring shadows over the whiteboard but also risked eye injury from the strength of the bulb which beamed just above their line of vision.

Hove Park SchoolThe solution was to install the Hitachi ED-A100. Our immediate experience of the Hitachi ED-A100 was that this short throw model totally resolved the serious Health and Safety concerns around traditional ‘long-throw’ projectors. BECTA warns: “If using data projectors or interactive whiteboards, ensure that pupils never look directly into the beam of the projector.”

The Hitachi ED-A100 can fill a 60inch screen from 42cm measured from the mirror to the screen, and this is only 9.6cm from the front of the projector to the whiteboard. The space-age design drops down a mirror and the bulb’s light is reflected back onto the screen. So there is absolutely no problem of dazzle. Students and staff can now face the class as they interact with the whiteboard without risk of damaging their eyes. This really does unleash the teaching and learning potential of this interactive technology. For students can interact not just with the software projected on the screen, but more importantly with the rest of the class who can be fully engaged along with those in front of the screen. Such a dynamic leads to lively and outstanding lessons.

THE PERFECT DISPLAY

Wanzl required an impressive floor-to-ceiling image in their three showrooms to capture people’s attention. A conventional projector would need to be ceiling mounted at a distance away from the screen. This would result in shadows when people walked in front of the beam. After some research, Hitachi’s Ultra Short Throw projector (CP-A100) provided the perfect solution for this dilemma.

WANZL projectorLeamington Sight and Sound were given the project of setting up a new store concept showroom for Wanzl Ltd. Ian Potter, the Project Manager for Leamington Sight and Sound was delighted when they discovered Hitachi’s Ultra Short Throw projector (CP-A100), commenting "these projectors are first-class, they sell themselves". The projectors were ceiling mounted using specially designed brackets to create a seamless effect, “you can’t even see the bracket” continues Ian, “the projector sits flush on the ceiling, without compromising the clean, white décor of the room”.

The Hitachi CP-A100 achieved a large, shadow-free image from a very short throw distance and is the only projector on the market that could fit this purpose. Additionally, the showroom is designed to have a flawless, white colour scheme, CP-A100 fits perfectly into this picture. This resulted in an aesthetically pleasing and functional application.
