Saver Mode
Saver mode is a feature developed by Hitachi, based on ImageCare® technology, that reduces the projector lamp brightness and consumption power, resulting in considerable energy savings. You can set the Saver mode time 1 to 30 minutes, and if the projected image does not change in that time, Saver mode activates. Saver mode can also be activated manually.

Intelligent Eco Mode
Intelligent Eco mode is a feature developed by Hitachi, based on ImageCare technology, that automatically changes the brightness of the lamp according to the level of the input signal. Lamp brightness is reduced when a darker image is projected and returns to normal when a brighter image is projected, eliminating unnecessary energy consumption from the lamp.

Network Function / Capability

Wireless Capability
You can use a wireless network by connecting the projector to a computer using the Optional USB wireless adapter. The adapter supports IEEE802.11b/g/n. Use the adapter cover to prevent the USB wireless adapter from coming off easily.

Hitachi Wireless
Multi Projector
You can project the same image from up to 12*3 projectors simultaneously. This is useful for meetings and lectures in large venues where a single screen would not be sufficient.
Moderator Control Mode
This mode lets you network 50*4 computers to the projector, with one computer acting as the moderator. The teacher can use the moderator computer to select and project images from the students’ computers.
PC-Less Presentation
By using a USB memory stick or other storage device, you can use the projector without a computer. Menus are easy to see with a thumbnail display. There is also a slideshow function. This feature also supports the following file types: JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF, AVI, and MOV — frame rate is under 12fps 640 x 480.
USB Memory reader

Convenient Networking
Embedded networking gives you the ability to manage and control multiple projectors over your LAN: Centralized Reporting , Scheduling, E-mail Alerts, and My Image (Image Transfer)

Smart Device Control
Plugging the USB wireless adapter to the projector and using the dedicated application developed by Hitachi, projectors can be controlled from a tablet or smartphone.
Mic. Input* and 16W Internal Speakers
The projectors are equipped with a microphone input, so you can use a microphone system, even when the projector is in standby. Projectors also have built-in 16W high power speakers
3 LCD chips with Inorganic Alignment Layers
These projectors incorporate three LCD Panels with inorganic alignment layers that are extremely light resistant, increasing brightness and contrast ratio. They ensure smooth images and high reliability.
Smart Device Speaker 3LCD
Easy Maintenance
The lamp door is on the top and the filter cover is on the side, so maintenance and replacement of these parts can be done easily.
Template Function
The Template Function equipped in these projectors projects pre-installed templates on a whiteboard, blackboard, or other surface. Templates include a line template to make writing on a board easier, a grid template, a world map, and more.
