Ultra Short Throw Projectors

Ultra Short Throw Projectors

Hitachi pioneered the concept of what are today commonly know as Ultra Short Throw projectors. Using a series of mirrors and some clever engineering we were able to produce a projector which solved three fundamental challenges for educators and presenters everywhere:

  1. Eliminate eye glare: Standing in front of a room, addressing an audience also means being in direct path of a projector light beam, not the best idea for people who need to do this regularly. An ultra short throw projector places you in front of the light beam, meaning no sore eyes anymore!
  2. Decrease screen shadows: Similarly when a presenter gestures to visual content or interacts with the image, traditional projectors would cast a large shadow across the screen, blocking the content. Ultra short throw projectors solve this problem by creating a relatively shadow free area around the content you’re gesturing or interacting with.
  3. Small rooms, large images: Typically, a small room was doomed to every only be able to have a tiny image if projection was required. However with an ultra short throw projector, that is no longer the case. A Maxell ultra short throw projector can produce an 100” screen size from just 69cm from the screen.

There are six models to choose from so you’re bound to be spoiled for choice.
