Hitachi America Ltd and Visual Systems Research Inc. (VSR) have formed a strategic partnership, combining VSR's Panamorph widescreen conversion optics with selected Hitachi multimedia projectors.

This technology integration aims to transform Hitachi projectors, such as the CP-S370W, CP-X380W, CP-SX5500W, CP-X980W, CP-X985W, and CP-X990W from the standard 4:3 aspect ratio, into a widescreen, 16:9 HDTV format, suitable for applications such as home theater and digital signage.

According to Hitachi, by incorporating the Panamorph lens, the company is able to provide a widescreen projector package offering with picture quality similar to that of superior widescreen options at lower costs.

Hitachi currently maintains a limited, exclusive partnership with VSR for Panamorph lenses directly attached to the projectors for mass markets. Distribution of the projector/lens combination is scheduled to begin immediately through Hitachi's commercial distribution partners and value added resellers.
