Ultra short-throw projectors eliminate shadows

NEC Display Solutions of America has announced its new U Series with the 3000-lumen U300X and 3100-lumen U310W. Shadows and glare are eliminated through mounting these ultra short throw projectors to the wall above the screen, making them well-suited for education environments using interactive or standard whiteboards.

The U300X and U310W offer XGA and WXGA resolutions, respectively, HDMI connectivity and dual computer inputs as well as variable audio out to connect the projector to an external speaker and control the volume through the projector’s remote control. Other features include lamp life up to 3000 hours (in ECO Mode), contrast ratio of 2000:1 and more.

The U300X and U310W projectors will be available for December 2010 shipment at an estimated street price of $1,199 and $1,299, respectively.
