NP2200 and NP1200 XGA Projectors Provide Bright Images, Green Features, Quick Start and Shutdown

CHICAGO - December 9, 2009 - NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the NP2200 and NP1200 professional installation projectors, which are designed for demanding integration projects. These powerful NP Installation Series models are intended to meet the needs of those users who require bright light output for large screens, at an affordable price.

The NP2200 displays a high level of brightness at 4200 ANSI lumens, and the NP1200 has an output of 3700 lumens, making both projectors very bright and suitable for corporate and higher education environments. Both models are energy-efficient and consume a low 0.4W rating in standby mode by utilizing ECO ModeT technology to save energy and consume less power. Energy savings can be documented via the integrated carbon savings meter, which is encouraged by an optional message at startup. Additionally, users can easily switch between settings through a green ECO Mode button on the remote control.

To provide maximum flexibility for installers, the NP2200 and NP1200 utilize optional bayonet style lenses (5) for quick and easy exchange. The array of optional lenses supports screen sizes from 40- to 500-inches at projection distances between 2.8-feet and 304-feet. The vertical and horizontal lens shift feature allows flexible projector placement to suit a variety of installation locations in a room. Both projectors have flexible input/output signal capabilities, including connectors for VGA, DVI-D with HDCP, 5-BNC, multiple audio in/out and RJ45 network control. Virtual Remote (DDC/CI) allows users to control the projector directly from a computer without the need for additional control cables.

“The NP2200 and NP1200 achieve outstanding performance for a variety of settings at an affordable price,” said Rich McPherson, Product Manager for projectors at NEC Display Solutions. “These NP Installation Series models offer advanced technologies, like remote monitoring, that provide flexibility and unbeatable total cost of ownership.”

In ECO Mode, the NP2200 and NP1200 can achieve up to 3000 hours of lamp life and decreased fan noise enabling fewer distractions and increased focus on presentations. The quick start and shutdown technology allows start up within five seconds and enables immediate power off with no cooling required after shutdown.

Several security features on the NP2200 and NP1200 prevent unwanted tampering, which is especially useful in education settings. Security features include keypad and Kensington locks, the ability to deactivate buttons on the cabinet to prevent unwanted changes and a password protection mode that restricts unauthorized use.

A partial list of features for the NP2200 and NP1200 includes:
. 1024 x 768 native resolution (XGA)
. 600:1 contrast ratio
. Up to 4200 ANSI lumens

. AutoSenseT, which automatically syncs the projector with any computer signal and enables one-touch image optimization

. Remote diagnostics, which enable the administrator to monitor and make adjustments to the projector via the network from a remote location

The NP2200 and NP1200 will begin shipping in December 2009 with estimated street prices of $2,399 and $1,999, 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).
