NEC Technologies' Introduces New Fixed Installation Projectors for Demanding, High Resolution Environments

Press Release  |  Jun 15, 2000

CRT-Like Image Quality, Extreme Brightness and Savvy Design Make New Powerhouse Projectors a Must-Have for Any Facility Environment

ITASCA, Ill., June 15 - Facilities requiring precise yet versatile projection power will want to make the MultiSync(R) GT1150(TM), the newest GT Series projector from NEC Technologies, Inc., a permanent part of their large-screen display arsenal. A true fixed-installation projector with exceptional data and video capability housed in a sophisticated, "new age" chassis, make the GT1150 an ideal replacement to bulky, traditional CRT projectors.

"The GT1150 fixed installation projector was specifically developed for use in demanding applications, such as command and control rooms, lecture halls, auditoriums, simulators and even high-end home theater and other graphic-intensive environments, where image quality and broad signal compatibility are of critical importance," said Don Fasick, Product Marketing Manager for the Visual Systems Division of NEC Technologies.

The new projector rounds-out NEC Technologies' diverse projector line-up, solidifying the company's ability to offer the widest range of customized, application-focused projection solutions. The MultiSync GT1150 LCD-based projector provides enhanced brightness of up to 3000 ANSI lumens and allows for freestanding double stackability, which increases brightness to up to 6000 ANSI lumens. At less than 20 pounds, the new projector is a flexible and economical alternative for rental and staging applications requiring high light output in a small projector package that is simple to set-up, move and manage.

Top Features, Tough Projector

The GT1150 incorporates VORTEX Technology(TM), the industry's first complete four-part image enhancement system for CRT-like image quality. VORTEX Technology provides data and graphic displays with superior uniformity, color and contrast, and video displays with greater depth, detail, brighter whites and more realistic colors. This translates to the exchange of information that is more eye-catching and memorable -- a true benefit to anyone that relies on vivid visual images for effective communication.

NEC Technologies' exclusive AutoSense(TM) Technology allows users to automatically adjust and optimize to incoming computer or video signals, providing crystal clear, perfectly sized and positioned images. Furthermore, with AutoSense technology, the MultiSync GT Series projectors can store up to 100 different computer and video signals.

All MultiSync GT Series projectors provide outstanding compatibility with virtually every computer and video source up to UXGA resolution, including full HDTV compatibility, due to NEC Technologies' Advanced AccuBlend(TM) Intelligent Pixel Blending technology. By incorporating digital keystone correction, Advanced AccuBlend compensates for any image distortion that may occur when a projector is installed with a sharp projection angle, allowing for continuously detailed and focused non-native resolution source display.

Additionally, the MultiSync GT1150 offers a complete assortment of easy-to-change lenses that satisfy any installation need, as well as full-powered zoom, focus and horizontal and vertical lens shift for simple set-up and operation.

Complete Service and Support Program

All MultiSync GT Series projectors are backed by NEC Technologies' complete InstaCare(R), InstaCare Xpress(SM) and TravelCare(SM) warranty programs that exceed the level of service and support today's professionals have come to expect from their presentation solutions provider. Two years of InstaCare coverage comes standard with each projector, giving users the assurance of repair and return service in three business days. When time matters most, InstaCare Xpress provides customers with a "next available flight" replacement option (fee-based). Finally, TravelCare allows any GT Series projector customer to receive warranty service on their projector when traveling internationally, regardless of where the projector was originally purchased.


The MultiSync GT1150 will begin shipping in the fall of 2000 and will available through NEC Technologies' authorized professional audio-visual dealers, strategic system integrators and rental/staging and OEM partners.
