Hitachi’s new Ultra Solid Engine Projector is the result of decades of technical experience and knowledge all coming together to produce an LED Projector with high quality images, maintenance free and low total cost of ownership.
The very latest High Lumen Density (HLD) technology means the LPWX3500/WU3500 is first LED (non-hybrid) projector to reach new, higher levels of brightness. This works by channelling blue LED light into a phosphor rod, where it is discharged as a bright green light. Working in tandem with high brightness red and blue LED lights, it achieves an impressive 3,500 lumens and a 30,000:1 contrast ratio.
This of course results in amazing picture quality, giving you a truly breath-taking image, with crisp, clear, bright colours. LED technology means images will continue to remain vibrant even after thousands of hours of projector use, with none of the deterioration or colour decay you might associate with a lamp projector.
When investing in a new projector it’s important to consider the total cost of ownership, and not just the initial purchase cost. Replacing traditional mercury lamps for example, can be a major expense.
However, the LEDs in an LED projector have a much longer life than traditional projector lamps. Hitachi’s LED Projector Series boasts a system life of up to 20,000 hours, so the LED light source will last the entire life of the projector without needing replacement. This alone should make LED Projectors a much more reliable and cost-effective option in the long run.
There’s no need for a warm-up or cool-down period with an LED projector because LEDs are so much more energy efficient than traditional light sources. You are able to turn it on, turn it off, and turn it straight back on again without fear of damaging the ‘lamp’.
LED Projectors also operate much more quietly than other projectors, creating a better user experience for both you and your audience. There’ll be no dust filters to change because LED projectors feature dust-resistant optical sealed engines. These cut down on common projector maintenance issues by preventing dust from interfering with the interior parts.
We consider the environmental implications when we buy cars, houses, washing machines, along with a host of other items — and now it’s also something we can consider when we are looking at projectors.
With no phosphor wheel, no mercury, no colour wheel and no lamp, LED Projectors not only use less energy than other types of projectors, they create less waste, such as old lamps for instance, making them easier on the environment and cheaper to run.
