Displays | Just Announced
Wed 12 Apr 2006

Singapore, 12 March 2006 -- NEC is launching its latest installation projectors, the NP2000 and NP1000. These wireless network projectors deliver industry leading brightness and advanced connectivity with eight possible connections, combined with easy set-up and use. The NP projectors are ideal for a wide range of installations from Corporate or Home Cinema set-ups through to museums, shops, schools and universities.

Equipped with five lens options, the NP2000 and NP1000 can produce one of the largest ranges of image size currently available. These vary from a 30" diagonal for rear projection applications for corporate and education and public display installations to over 500" which is ideal for a large museum or exhibition spaces. The lenses are installed using a bayonet fitting making swapping a lens as quick and effortless as changing a light bulb.

Installation is easy. With 3D reform and geometric correction as well as vertical and horizontal lens shift, the new NEC projectors make it simple and quick for corporate, homes, schools and public display users to get started. HD compatible and offering multiple connectivity options including DVI, these projectors are also fully future-proofed.

Vincent Koh, Vice President of Multimedia Product Group for NEC Solutions Asia Pacific comments, "With these new installation projectors NEC can offer dealers and end users new levels of flexibility in the range projection solutions on offer. With the NPs, NEC incorporated feature rich technology to offer users the maximum flexibility available from the variety of connection options to the range of image sizes. This ensures NEC is able to offer two of the most adaptable, easy to use projectors available for this sector."
