NEC DISPLAY SOLUTIONS INTRODUCES UM SERIES ULTRA SHORT THROW PROJECTORS WITH INTERACTIVE OPTION

3300-Lumen Models Ideal for Education and Corporate Customers; Offer Integrated Speaker, Dual HDMI, Remote Management

CHICAGO – December 3, 2012 – NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today its UM Series of ultra short throw multimedia projectors. The 3300-lumen UM330X and UM330W pack a multitude of features while delivering an extremely short throw distance for education and corporate applications.

A complete interactive projector solution can be created using the optional NP02Wi eBeam interactive system, which connects between the USB port on the eBeam module at the front of the projector and computer, and uses IR to determine the wireless pen’s position within the displayed image. This technology gives users the ability to control their computers and annotate accurately at the whiteboard. With their ability to be mounted to the walls directly above the screens on which they project, the UM330X and UM330W help eliminate shadows and glare typically found with standard projection systems.

“The interactive eBeam system is yet another technology NEC is proud to offer in support of those customers wanting to increase engagement during group tasks,” said Rich McPherson, Senior Product Manager for Projectors at NEC Display Solutions. “The UM Series offers expansive connectivity including dual HDMI, VGA, a USB hub and microphone input. Combined with standard features like built-in speakers and remote management capabilities, these models are a huge value to our customer base.”

The UM330X and UM330W projectors include the following features:

3300 lumens in XGA and WXGA resolutions

Ultra short throw lens (0.36:1 throw ratio) eliminates shadows on the screen and projected light in the presenter’s eyes

Dual HDMI, VGA, USB hub and microphone inputs

Built-in 16-watt speaker

Closed captioning enables the decoding and display of text information from a video

ECO Mode™ technology helps extend lamp life and lowers power consumption

Variable audio-out allows the remote control to adjust the volume of self-

powered external speakers connected to the projector

Virtual Remote allows the presenter to control the projector from the computer desktop without using the physical remote control

Remote monitoring and control of the projector via RJ-45 network connection

AutoSense™ intuitively syncs the projector with most computer signals and features one-touch image optimization

AutoKeystone Correction instantly projects a square image even when the projector is set up at a steep offset angle to the screen

Wireless LAN (optional) allows you to wirelessly transmit images from a PC wirelessly to the projector, eliminating the need for traditional cumbersome cables

Optional NP04WK1 ultra short throw wall mount kit (also available as a bundle—UM330X-WK1 and UM330W-WK1)

The UM330X and UM330W projectors, as well as the UM330X-WK1 and UM330W-WK1 bundles, will be available in January 2013 at a minimum advertised price of $1099, $1299, $1318 and $1518, respectively. Each model ships with at 2-year limited parts and labor warranty.
