Unlike most of the competition, it features both horizontal and vertical lens shift, greatly increasing flexibility of placement of the projector. Also, it features one of the highest output, built-in audio power ratings 16 watts in its class. This combination of brightness and sound level make it well suited for its intended use in a classroom or lecture hall. Another nice feature is the claimed hour lamp life in Eco mode, as well as a hour replacement interval for the dust filter. As a user can still get lumens in Eco mode, you can get a lot of projection time out of a lamp if you have some light control in your presentation venue. One key aspect of dealing with large classrooms is sound.

As it turns out the Hitachi CP-XN produces a proper lumens with optimum brightness setting, but still looks very good pushing out over lumens. With a solid lumens, plus some extra in reserve for impossible situations, this Hitachi XN projector is more formidable than we first thought. Or as I had put it when we first published the Hitachi review:.
Back to the original content. All further measurements were taken at the mid-zoom point. Using Normal picture mode, which provided the best trade off between picture quality and brightness, the output was lumens.
Cinema mode was a respectable lumens. Dynamic mode, which varied from most projector Dynamic modes in that it had darker blacks than Cinema mode, came in at only a slightly lower lumens. Next up were the three colorboard modes, with Blackboard mode at lumens, Greenboard at and Whiteboard at This results in quite a large drop from the brightest mode to the Eco mode, which is much greater than most projectors in this class.
The second XN arrived, and produced measurements almost identical to the first one. Based on measuring two different Hitachi projectors, we have to treat this Hitachi as a lumen type projector it beat that, with zoom at wide angle — how the manufacturers measure.
As such, we believe the projector capable of larger screens in classrooms and multi-purpose rooms with some ambient lighting! Connecting the CP-XN to a computer network via its RJ jack permits remote management, scheduling and control of one or more projectors. As an IP address is set for each projector, multiple projectors can be connected to the network and controlled via a web browser by any computer on the network as well. Unlike some of the competition, the user can also run presentations over the network to one or more projectors.
A single projector can also display presentations from four PCs simultaneously. The user can also check the lamp hours as well as enable warning notifications by email. We do not check actual networking functionality, but have seen Hitachi demonstrate working features such as email notification across a network. Combine this relatively low level of noise with the powerful watt built-in speakers and it truly becomes a non-issue for presentations with sound.
There is no need for externally powered speakers to overcome projector noise with the CP-XN.
