The high performance models offer class-leading brightness along with the latest connectivity options and advanced set-up software to facilitate flexibility installation and operation.

“The new 5000 series offers customers industry-leading projection solutions that focus on image quality, high performance, reliability and installation flexibility, with advanced features that optimise convenience and functionality,” said Axel Kutschke, Senior Manager, Presentation Products for Hitachi Digital Media Group. “Features such as the seamless design as well as simultaneous Edge Blending and Warping and HDBaseT connectivity provide the flexibility and capability required to suit a wide range of user requirements in both commercial and educational environments.”

All five models in the new line-up offer the class-leading maximum brightness level of 5,800 lumens, along with contrast ratio of 10,000:1, meaning that they have the performance and ability to create impactful presentations in any environment.

With built-in Edge Blending and Warping software included in the package, the 5000 series models have the unique ability to operate both functions at the same time, ensuring that it is simple to combine several projectors to create an even larger, brighter image on just about any surface.

High connectivity including HDBaseT for long distance reliable connectivity all models offer a full range of latest connectivity options such as LAN port, HDMI, and analogue options and a very unique HDMI out option to enable two projectors to show the same content simultaneously on two different screens for large conferences or presentations.

High Dynamic Contrast Range (HDCR) and the unique Hitachi Accentualizer ensure high quality, life-like projections from all models by compensating for bright environments and enhancing sharpness, gloss and shade. The exclusive Hitachi Image Optimiser automatically adjusts the HDCR and Accentualizer to counteract any loss of brightness or clarity over time.
