NEC Introduces DT20 Five-In-One Projector

Press Release  |  Jun 3, 2003

New DT20 Projects Computer Sources, Video, Documents, Transparencies and Even 3d Objects from Single Integrated Source for the Ultimate in Convenience

ITASCA, Ill., June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- NEC Solutions (America), Inc. today introduced the DT20, giving users the functionality of separate digital and overhead projectors in one product for streamlined hardware needs and increased convenience and space conservation. The projector's integrated document camera also enables direct overhead projection of documents and 3D objects for superior versatility in classroom, corporate training room, engineering, courtroom and law office applications. The DT20 follows the DT100, the industry's first integrated five-in-one projector, as the next generation in NEC's DT Series line of multi-function projectors.

"The DT20 lets teachers, lawyers, professionals and engineers meet their display needs with a single product, eliminating the hassle of switching between separate devices," said Joe Azzarello, product manager for Visual Systems at NEC Solutions America. "With the overhead and digital projector capabilities at half the weight of the devices purchased separately, and with one-touch setup and operation, the DT20 offers not only a flexible communication tool, but also the ultimate in convenience."

The projector's overhead projection feature uses a two-million-pixel single-plate color CCD camera for high-resolution and realistic original color production. Users can easily place documents, transparencies, or even 3D objects such as circuit boards, coins and lab objects onto the flat bed atop the DT20 and project the images onto the screen. The projector's zoom capabilities allow fine text, circuit boards and other details to be easily enlarged without moving the projector, giving users the ability to adapt the image size to their satisfaction.

The 16-lb. DT20 produces a bright 2800 lumens of light for vivid data and video images in courtroom, classroom, and conference room applications. Its AccuBlend(TM) technology allows for projection of non-native resolution sources up to UXGA.

Complete Service and Support Program
NEC's DT20 projector is backed by a two-year limited parts and labor warranty, and one year of the company's industry-leading InstaCare program that provides for three business day repair and return. According to Pacific Media Associates' 2002 Large-Screen Displays Reseller Survey, NEC ranked highest among all display manufacturers for product quality/reliability and warranty repair/return programs. In the survey, resellers rated product quality/reliability as the most important single attribute of a large-screen display manufacturer.

Pricing and Availability
The DT20 will be available in June through NEC's nationwide network of channel partners with a suggested retail price of $6,195 ($8,985 Canadian). For more information about the DT20 or about NEC's complete line of large- screen display products, please call 1-800-NEC-INFO or visit
