NEC Technologies Announces Availability of New Fixed Installation Projector For Demanding, High Resolution Environments

Press Release  |  Nov 29, 2000

CRT-Like Image Quality, Extreme Brightness and Savvy Design Make New Powerhouse Projector A Must-Have for any Facility Environment

ITASCA, Ill., Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- NEC Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: NIPNY) announces the availability of the new MultiSync(R) GT1150 (TM), the latest in its GT Series of fixed-installation projectors. Facilities requiring precise yet versatile projection power will want to make the GT1150 a permanent part of their large-screen display arsenal. An ideal CRT replacement and permanent installation projector, the GT1150 incorporates distinctive features such as an optional LAN card, horizontal and vertical lens shift and NEC's exclusive Eco-Mode(TM) technology housed in a sophisticated, "new age" chassis.

"The GT1150 fixed installation projector was specifically developed for use in demanding applications, such as CRT replacement, command and control rooms, lecture halls, auditoriums, simulators and even high-end home theater and other graphic-intensive environments. It is ideal for uses 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 22 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. 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.

The GT1150 also features NEC Technologies' exclusive Eco-Mode(TM) technology, a selectable option that provides up to a 35 percent increase in lamp life and a decrease in fan noise while causing a minimal light output reduction. This increase in lamp life significantly reduces the total cost of ownership for the GT1150 when compared to other products in its class.

The new projector can also be equipped with an optional LAN card, making it possible to hook up a network cable to the projector and access it from a remote location via a Web browser. Thus, the projector can be monitored and controlled from down the hall or across the country.

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, 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

The MultiSync GT1150 projector is backed by NEC Technologies' complete InstaCare(R) service program that exceeds the level of support today's professionals have come to expect from their presentation solutions provider. Two years of InstaCare coverage comes standard with each projector's 2-year parts and labor warranty, giving users the assurance of repair and return service in three business days. When time matters most, InstaCare Xpress(SM) provides customers with a "next available flight" replacement option (fee and airline restrictions may apply).

Pricing and Availability

The MultiSync GT1150 is available now through NEC Technologies' authorized professional audio-visual dealers, strategic system integrators and rental/staging and OEM partners. Its suggested retail price is $14,995 without the lens option and $15,995 when shipped with the GT19ZL lens.
