GENERAL-PURPOSE: The NEC NP400 (list price, $1,199; street price, about $800) LCD projector provides bright images (2,500 lumens) and wired network connectivity to users who require remote monitoring and control at a value price. It includes built-in closed captioning, seven-watt audio, automatic keystoning and eco mode technology, which can boost lamp life to 4,000 hours.SHORT-THROW: The NP600S ($1,199) creates a 77-inch diagonal image from less than four feet; it is a 2,600-lumen projector and, like the NP400, has wired network connectivity and provides up to 4,000 hours of lamp life in eco mode.INEXPENSIVE: The NP200 is a DLP projector with a street price of about $600; it is an XGA resolution projector and has 2,100 lumens and a lamp life of 3,500 to 4,000 hours. Its inputs include composite video, dual component/VGA and S-Video.HIGH-DEFINITION: NEC recommends its NP500W ($1,399) for high-definition projection; with 3,000 lumens, it supports the 1,080i high-definition video mode.
NEC Display has announced two new portable short-throw projectors, the NP500WS and the NP600S. The NP500WS, a wide-aspect ratio projector, features 1,280x800 native resolution at 2,100 lumens, while the NP600S provides a 1,024x768 native resolution at 2,600 lumens. Each has a contrast ratio of 600:1 and provides up to 4,000 hours of lamp life. The NP500WS and NP600S projectors work well with whiteboards and create a 77-inch diagonal image from just three feet, ten inches. In fact, either can be mounted on the wall directly above the screen or whiteboard. The integrated RJ45 connection provides quick connection to the LAN and ECO Mode technology, which increases lamp life to as much as 4,000 hours while lowering power consumption and reducing noise.
NEC Display Solutions of America (www.necdisplay.com) announces the latest in the NP Portable Series with the fully featured NP216 DLP projector. Dual VGA inputs provide multiple computer inputs and eliminate the time-consuming process of alternating between computer sources from one input. The latest TI DLP Link technology offers users the ability to project 3D images. Additionally, the variable audio-out feature enables users to connect self-powered external speakers to the projector, adjustable by the projector remote control. Lamp life is extended up to 5,000 hours with the use of its Eco Mode technology and lowers power consumption to 217W (0.49W in standby mode).
