Hitachi launches ultra short throw lens

Hitachi has extended its range of interchangeable lenses for 9000 Series Installation projectors with the addition of the ultra short throw FL-900.

As the eighth member of the family, the new lens reduces the throw distance of the range by 60%, opening up a wide variety of new application options that require performance and bright colours in a demanding installation environment.

The collection of eight lenses now offers throw distances of 19m down to just 0.83m from lens to screen for a 100” screen with a widescreen CP-WU9410, ensuring that customers have a solution to meet wide range of installation environments. The rear facing lens means that the projector can be mounted as close as 0.11m from the projection surface with a horizontal separation of only 0.55m.
