Four New NP Series Projectors Overlap, Produce up to 20,000 Lumens of Brightness
CHICAGO - June 16, 2009 - NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading stand-alone provider of commercial LCD displays and projectors, announced today the NP3250, NP3250W, NP2250 and NP1250 digital installation projectors. Packed with power and a full lineup of features, these NP Installation Series models can take on the most demanding integration projects in corporate boardrooms, education lecture halls and public display environments.

The NP Installation Series projectors can be seen at InfoComm 09 (NEC Display Solutions Booth No. 5001) on June 17-19 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

The four new NEC NP Installation Series projectors deliver high-tech performance with a variety of advanced features that create flexibility for enhanced usage. Bright enough for most applications, the projectors display images up to 5,000 lumens. For the ultimate presentation, users may take advantage of the stacking capability, enabling up to four projectors to boost an image’s brightness up to 20,000 lumens, which is ideal for larger-sized screens and environments with heavy ambient light. This feature also prevents the complete loss of an image, which can happen when using only one projector.

“The addition of these NP Installation Series projectors continues NEC’s long-standing tradition of providing products that meet a customer’s needs by offering a large assortment of innovative features that greatly enhance and positively benefit demanding applications,” said Keith Yanke, Director of Product Marketing at NEC Display Solutions. “The NP3250, NP3250W, NP2250 and NP1250 ignite power in every aspect with advanced technologies that produce both eye-popping images and easily-accessible networking properties for those running the system.”

“The significant increase in availability of 3D movies and digital signage is driving demand for dual-stack projector solutions,” said Rajeev Surati, President of Scalable Display Technologies, Inc. “The combination of two NP Installation Series projectors with the Scalable software, polarized filters and polarized glasses allows for very clear and bright 3D displays. High brightness digital signage is easy and economical to deploy with this new solution.”

The NP3250, NP3250W, NP2250 and NP1250 are equipped with Integrated Device Technology HQVT processing, a high-performance video processing/scaling system designed for computer signals, as well as standard or high-definition video. The vertical and horizontal lens shift feature and optional quick-mount (bayonet style) lenses allow flexible projector placement to suit the needs of the room, creating a screen size from 40 inches to 500 inches.

The projectors include new features built into the Windows platform, such as Windows Network Drive Function, which displays images from a Windows Shared folder using the Viewer Function, and Windows Media Connect Functionality, which utilizes the Viewer Function to view Windows Media Connect Server over the network. Additionally, the projectors take advantage of Windows Network Projector functionality within Windows VistaT via the wireless adapter or integrated RJ45 without the need for additional proprietary software. USB connection for a mouse and keyboard allow desktop control when the projector is connected via Windows Remote Desktop via a wired/wireless network connection. Remote diagnostics enable the administrator to monitor and make adjustments to the projector via the network remotely.

The NP3250, NP3250W, NP2250 and NP1250 provide the following features:
. 1024 x 768 native resolution (1280 x 800 WXGA native resolution for NP3250W)
. 600:1 contrast ratio (500:1 for NP3250W)
. Brightness for NP3250 at 5,000 lumens, NP3250W at 4,000 lumens, NP2250 at 4,200 lumens and NP1250 at 3,700 lumens
. Power consumption of 490-watts for NP3250/NP3250W and 460-watts for NP1250/NP2250
. 3D ReformT with geometry correction, which allows the user to square the image by adjusting horizontally, vertically or diagonally when the projector cannot be placed parallel or perpendicular to the screen
. Advanced AccuBlendT, which ensures detailed images when non-native resolution sources are connected to the projector
. AutoSenseT, which automatically syncs with any computer signal and features one-touch image optimization
. Built-in wall color correction presets, which provide for adaptive color tone correction to display properly on non-white surfaces

ECO ModeT technology increases lamp life to 3,000 hours and decreases fan noise. The lamp saver technologies enable the cooling fan to continue running even after the power source is disconnected. Built-in sensors protect the lamp and projector from overheating, and e-mail notifications inform the system administrator of error messages and when the lamp is approaching the end of its useful life.

The NP3250, NP3250W, NP2250 and NP1250 will begin shipping in June 2009 with an estimated street price of $3,999, $3,999, $3,499 and $2,999, respectively. The projectors ship with a standard three-year parts and labor warranty, including the first year with InstaCareT (repair and return in three business days or next business day exchange).
