The WXGA-resolution (1280 x 800) Hitachi CP-AW251N Ultra Short Throw Projector cranks out 2500 ANSI lumens of projection power at a 2000:1 contrast ratio to give you a bright, vivid image, even when you can't achieve theater level darkness. Its 3LCD, 3 chip imaging panels (the part that creates the image) deliver sharper and brighter pictures with superior grayscale detail. Smooth, seamless color combined with an unparalleled grayscale range delivers incredible detail to every image displayed by the CP-AW251N. Those images can be in a wide variety of formats. Of course, it can project in 720p, 1080i and 1080p high definition. Its international credentials are equally impressive. It can project images in the NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N, and SECAM video formats. What is really special about the CP-AW251N is how it can display an 80" (2 m) diagonal image from a throw distance of 20" (0.5 m). Not only does this prevent image obstruction, but it also means that there are no shadows interfering with the image and the absence of light in the presenter's face. The CP-AW251N makes your audience's life easier too. It can display all four closed captioning (CC) channels as well as all four text channels from programming sources that provide CC (CC1, CC2, CC3, CC4, T1, T2, T3, T4). Closed captioning is useful not only for the hard of hearing but also for people learning English as a second language or for anyone trying to convey information in a noisy environment.
