Infotech Lead America: NEC Display Solutions of America says its new P Series projectors offers up to 29 percent increase in brightness.
The new P series is aimed at corporate boardrooms, education classrooms and government training facilities.
NEC is offering special offers for education customers in the U.S. For instance, education customers can receive an additional year on their warranties. Star Student customers can receive an additional two years on their warranties with product registration.
The price of P401W, P451X, P451W and P501X is $1,799, $1,799, $2,049 and $2,199, respectively. The new P series comes with a 3-year limited parts and labor warranty and will be available in April 2013.
The new P Series projectors feature the P401W, P451X, P451W and P501X models, offering up to 29 percent increase in brightness over the previous generation units.
Moreover, the new series offer the addition of the P451W (a 4,500-lumen projector in WXGA native resolution), and improved contrast ratios from 2000:1 to 4000:1.
Improved connectivity (two HDMI with HDCP) also allows for simultaneous digital connections of high-definition sources, such as Blu-ray players, cable boxes, satellite receivers and computers.
In addition, Advanced AccuBlend ensures detailed images when non-native resolution sources are connected to the projector.
Rich McPherson, senior product manager for Projectors at NEC Display Solutions, said: “We have designed the P Series projectors for long life with such features as the virtually maintenance-free filter, which reduces the necessity for frequent cleanings. The result is a lower total cost of ownership.”
With ECO Mode technology, the P Series projectors’ lamp and filter life are extended up to 6,000 hours, and the filter does not need to be changed until the lamp has reached its end of life.
Carbon savings are calculated automatically, enriching the projectors’ eco-friendliness. The increased brightness and contrast ratio make for dynamic presentations while bringing extreme definition to all inputs.
Additionally, quick start (3 to 4 seconds) and direct power-off let users present and move on within seconds.
