NEC Display Solutions has today unveiled a new line of high-bright projectors. The P-series debuts with two models designed specifically for entry-grade installation environments, such as corporate boardrooms and higher education classrooms.
In addition to high brightness, both the P420X and the P350W offer great picture performance, paired with outstanding network connectivity and advanced eco features, which help to lower operating and service costs.
These new installation projectors also promise low installation costs, thanks to innovative features such as Lens Shift and the wide zoom lens.
Furthermore, with a large 1.7x optical zoom, contrast ratio of 2000:1 and brightness levels of 4200 lumens (P420X) and 3500 lumens (P350W), these new projectors provide dynamic images under normal ambient lighting conditions.
The P420X boasts a native resolution of 1024×768 (XGA) and the P350W supports 1280×800 (WXGA) providing a wide-screen format, ideal for presenting videos and enlarging presentations.
Built-in software features include wall colour correction, automatic keystone correction and Virtual Remote for ease of installation. Also, the built-in wireless access point allows a wireless connection in just seconds by using available WLAN options.
The latest networking features, such as Windows Network Projector, Windows Remote Desktop, Image Express and Media Connect function, are designed to make wired or wireless picture transfer simple.
Image Express Lite also enhances the setup experience, with built-in cornerstone correction and even a complete geometric correction possibility.
Furthermore, both projectors feature a range of display input options, including HDMI, S-video, RGB and RCA connectors, and both support the Projector Viewer Function, which allow users to show PowerPoint files, PDF files, images or movies directly from USB memory or via network without any need of a presentation PC.
NEC’s innovative ECO ModeTM technology means that the P-series projectors' lamp and filter life are extended to 3,500 hours, and the filter does not need to be changed until the lamp has reached the end of its life.
The active lens cover enables presenters to immediately mute the audio and video, as well as lowering the lamp brightness to 25%.
Additionally, start-up takes under four seconds, and direct power-off let users present and move on within seconds. The sum of these combined features equates to a lower total cost of ownership and energy usage, which are calculated automatically by the integrated carbon savings meter.
"We have included features in this projector series that not only exceed the needs of education and corporate users, but enhance the user experience with practical and
easy-to-use functionality," says Gerd Kaiser, product line manager, large venue projectors at NEC Display Solutions, Europe.
"The P-series provides users with everything they need, from built-in technologies and extended connectivity to energysaving features and advanced networking capabilities."
