Introducing Maxell-Hitachi MCAX3006 Ultra Short Throw Projector

Ultra Short Throw Projectors are projectors that are fitted very close to the projection area.

The closeness of the optical lens to the screen and their engineering eliminates shadows and allows for very bright projection.

This very popular Ultra Short Throw Projector is ideal as a match to a 77″ Smart or a 79″ Promethean whiteboard.

Fitting time is very short and being a very bright projector you won’t need to turn off the lights and close the blinds to see what is on the whiteboard!

With both VGA and HDMI connections, all type of laptops or PCs can easily connect to it.

It has a 5 years warranty for educational bodies and 3 years warranty for the lamp.

Hitachi has changed their branding recently and is now trading under the new name Maxell:

Ultra Short Throw Projectors, or USTs, are the unit of choice when it is not possible or viable to install a touchscreen panel like a V Series Clevertouch.

This may be because the classroom has recently received a new interactive whiteboard and has not replaced the old projector.

In this case it makes complete sense to invest in an Ultra Short Throw Projector.
