Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The CP-WU8450 does not support full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to this projector also do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the Epson 475Wi, or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A are also worth considering.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesses of data projectors of a comparable spec and age to this projector range from 100 ANSI lumens to 7,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 5,000 ANSI lumens, the CP-WU8450 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to this data projector.

If this Hitachi projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Hitachi CP-WX8255A (5,500 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
