steady, and easy to assemble at home.
DZ-BD10HA Blu-ray Camcorder
Hitachi Home Electronics (America), Inc. introduces its next-generation
Blu-ray Disc Hybrid Camcorder with the ability to record onto the next
generation HD format, Blu-ray. This camcorder has the versatility of being
able to record HD video onto three separate formats (Blu-ray Disc, Hard
Drive, SDHC) and provides the flexibility and ease of playback and long
recording time all in one camcorder.
Ultra Short Throw LCD Projector And Large Venue Projector
Hitachi will exhibit the CP-A100 3LCD projector at CES. This model features
a very short throw distance, eliminating the problem of presenters
obstructing the projected image by standing in front of the screen.
Additionally, the CP-A100 offers networking capabilities, allowing multiple
projectors to be controlled and monitored from a single location. Hitachi
will also showcase the CP-X10000 3LCD Professional Series projector. The
CP-X10000 projector is the first model in Hitachi's new 3LCD Professional

Gesture Control TV Interface
The TV interface prototype with gesture control interface allows users to
operate a television by simply moving the hand without using a remote
control unit. The embedded camera sensor spontaneously reacts to hand
motion to turn TV on and off, scroll channels, control volume, and is also
expandable to control home network such as air-conditioning and lighting.
Hitachi has developed Super-Resolution technology to create high definition
images of various resolutions. In contrast to conventional technology,
which transforms video of a given resolution to a pre-determined level of
high definition image, Hitachi's new technology uses original signal
processing technology to transform video of various resolution levels to
the optimal level of high-resolution image.
As a result, it is possible to create high-definition images from video
containing images of various resolutions on the same display such as in
television broadcasts. In additional to transforming SD video to near HD
video, this technology also enhances full HDTV (1920x1080 pixels)
iVDR (Information Versatile Disk for Removable usage) is a removable hard
disk drive with features compatible with a wide range of applications from
AV to PC and an additional feature of Electronic Paper Display. This allows
for ultra low power consumption and is indefinitely re-writable.
Clarion, which joined Hitachi-group as a consolidated subsidiary since
2006, is joining the Hitachi booth with their Mobile Internet Navigation
Device, ClarionMiND. The ClarionMiND combines connected personal GPS
navigation and real-time Points of Interest (POI) with Internet based
entertainment and full web browsing capabilities.
