The ED-A100 3LCD projector features a very short throw distance, eliminating the problem of presenters obstructing the projected image by standing in front of the screen. Additionally, the ED-A100 offers networking capability, allowing multiple projectors to be controlled and monitored from a single location.
The ED-A100 boasts an ultra-short throw distance of 60 inches at 1.4 feet. This not only prevents image obstruction, but also means there are no shadows interfering with the image and no light in the presenter's face.
Adding to the user's convenience is the network connectivity of the ED-A100, which allows for simultaneous monitoring and control of several projectors from a remote location. This is particularly beneficial in schools and large corporate environments, where projectors are located throughout a facility and the monitoring of each projector is a time-consuming ordeal. With the benefits of networking technology, a technician can monitor details such as lamp life for each projector from his/her computer. Additionally, the ED-A100's performance stands alone among competitive models. It offers a brightness of 2,000 ANSI lumens, XGA resolution and a 500:1 contrast ratio.
The ED-A100 addresses the issue of security with functions such as multilevel PIN locks, a security bar and a Kensington slot. Moreover, the ED-A100 is easy to use, featuring advanced connectivity and proprietary Hitachi functions including My Buttons, Input Source Naming and My Text. The ED-A100's E-Shot feature allows users to transfer up to four still images from a computer to the projector.
Easy maintenance is another attractive function of the ED-A100, as its lamp door is on top of the model, and the filter is located on the back, allowing for easy access. The ED-A100 offers additional versatility with its Whiteboard, Blackboard or Day Time Modes.
