Hitachi Introduces 5000 Lumen Laser Projector as Part of Growing SSL Line

CHULA VISTA, California – Today, Hitachi America, Ltd. introduced the LP-WU6500 laser projector as its newest member of the solid-state laser (SSL) projector line. This highly anticipated new projector has 5000 lumens and a resolution of WUXGA 1920x1200 pixels.

In Hitachi’s continued efforts to provide end-users with a complete line of solutions for any installation, the LP-WU6500 is the next step toward having a comprehensive range of SSL projectors.

“At Hitachi, we work with designers, integrators and end-users to make sure we provide products that fit every type of installation — and do it well,” says Mike Morin, Manager, Strategic Sales Development, Hitachi America, Ltd. “Expanding our line of SSL projectors was naturally the next step for us. We're proud of the 5000 lumen laser projector, and we did a lot of research and development work to make sure that it provides our customers with the right set-up and features that they need.”

Solid state laser projectors deliver a wide range of benefits including deeper, richer colors, but with no compromise on brightness. A longer maintenance-free life, up to 20,000 hours, means laser projectors reduce maintenance costs and can be installed in hard-to-reach places without having to worry about changing lamps or replacing filters.

With WUXGA 1920x1200 resolution, the new 5000 lumen laser projector is equipped with a built-in 1.65x zoom lens, HDBaseT™, 3 HDMI digital inputs and is suitable for long life usage with an expected 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation. Like other SSL projectors from Hitachi, the LP-WU6500 is eligible for the OneVision program for higher education facilities.

Ideal for education and corporate AV environments, the new Hitachi 5000 lumen projector delivers high performance and unmatched support.
