From the classroom to the store window, the Hitachi CP-AW250N Ultra-Short Throw LCD Projector is an ideal solution for anyone requiring high-image quality projection at short throw range. With the ability to project an 80" image from less than two feet away, the CP-AW250N is excellent for wall mounting situations due to high or false ceilings. It works well in tight store windows and for gaming or watching videos. It's also ideal for rear projection installations and for giving presentations, since you can stand in front of the room without blocking the image.


The picture quality of the CP-AW250N starts with 3LCD technology, which delivers true-to-life images. The resolution is 1280 x 800 and the contrast ratio is 2000:1. The CP-AW250N is also HD ready and HDMI compatible, ensuring the highest quality images will be transmitted and projected.

Features like Perfect Fit and Daytime Mode also improve picture quality. Perfect Fit uses an eight point adjustment scheme to correct geometric distortions caused by bumps in the screening area. It can manipulate all four corners and sides quickly to achieve a square and smooth image. Daytime Mode employs image quality correction technology to off-set the problems from bright light. The result is a crisp and well-defined image.

This line of Hitachi projectors has multiple options for connecting to an image source. HDMI offers the highest-quality pictures, video and sound. There are several other connection options for analog sources, computers and anything with USB connectivity; including PC-less presentations where a USB stick supplies the data. The CP-AW250N also has an Ethernet port for network connectivity.

The Advanced Networking through a LAN connection lets supervisors manage and control multiple projectors. Machines can be turned on or off, email alerts can be sent and all projectors can be monitored via the network. The AMX Device Discovery runs through the network as well. This feature automatically downloads pertinent communication modules and drivers to the projector. Presentations can even be given over a network of projectors from a single computer or you can take advantage of the Multi PC mode and use up to four computers in one presentation for more effective visual and data aids. The Messenger Function uses the network by sending and displaying text data to several projectors at once. This is handy for company-wide or campus-wide announcements. You can also collect reports from all projectors connected to the network onto one administrative PC.

While the CP-AW250N can handle many applications, it is not difficult to maintain. The eco-friendly hybrid filters and long-life lamps last for more than 4000 hours. That's ten times longer than conventional filters. Prolonged usage between replacement cycles reduces the overall cost of ownership. The CP-AW250N is also lightweight and the new bundled wall mount makes installation quick and easy. This network model is a perfect balance of technology and design. It ensures easy management and offers the highest quality images, all tied together in a compelling package.


Ultimate Short Throw
Hitachi's Ultimate Short Throw projectors achieve the optimum balance between throw distance and image quality. They can be defined as having a throw ratio of less than 0.35:1, distortion of less than 0.5% corner to corner and having digital image correction for barrel, pincushion and corner distortion

Ultimate Connectivity
Manage and control multiple projectors over LAN. The Ultimate Short Throw range offers flexible networking capabilities. Administrators can conveniently schedule a variety of actions for multiple projectors on the network, including automatic Power On/Off and centralized reporting. The clever messenger function also allows messages to be sent to multiple projectors instantly or at a specified time. This is ideal for information which needs to go out over a large area fast. Connections include HDMI, RGB and video inputs. There is an RS-232 control port and Ethernet connection with free control and monitoring software

Daytime Mode
Projected images may sometimes be difficult to see under bright lighting. The Daytime Mode uses image quality correction technology to counter the effects of light, ensuring clear and vivid images

Perfect Fit
The enhanced Hitachi Perfect Fit now incorporates an eight point adjustment, which includes all four corners and sides. This intuitive feature helps make correcting complicated or geometric distortions caused by imperfections in screen flatness as quick as possible

No Glare or Shadows
Traditional projectors temporarily blind people that walk in front of them. Hitachi's unique Ultra Short Throw technology means that if you stand in front of the projector the light beam won't shine in your eyes

A sophisticated, innovative technology that utilizes 3 chips to deliver vibrant, true-to-life and consistent images for the most demanding audiences

AMX Device Discovery

Hybrid Filter & Long Life Lamp
Both last for more than 4000 hours, ten times longer than conventional filters. This extension in maintenance intervals reduces the overall cost of ownership significantly

Easy Install

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.

How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.

How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.

Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.

What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.

Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.

May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covered product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.

Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
