NEC Intros Two Short Throw, Portable Projectors
NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading stand-alone provider of commercial LCD displays and projectors, today announced two new portable short throw projectors, the NP500WS and NP600S, which address the needs of educational facilities, small-to-medium-sized businesses and corporate applications that require a short throw distance in classrooms and conference rooms.
The NP500WS, a wide-aspect ratio projector, features 1280 x 800 native resolution at 2100 lumens, while the NP600S provides a 1024 x 768 native resolution at 2600 lumens. Each has a contrast ratio of 600:1 and provides up to 4000 hours of lamp life in ECO Mode™.
The affordable portable projectors include automatic technologies that are essential and easy to use. The Auto Power ON via RGB (15-pin) input eliminates the need for a remote control by automatically turning the projector on when a signal is detected. AutoSense™ technology intuitively syncs the projector with most computer signals and features one-touch image optimization. This enables quick setup for users that need fast functionality.
“The NP Short Throw Series adds versatility to the NEC projector line by providing the unique ability to cast an image onto the screen from a short distance of less than 4-feet,” said Rich McPherson, Product Manager at NEC Display Solutions. “The NP500WS and NP600S portable projectors are standout products for rooms that have little projection space but require bright images and easy-to-use technologies. With innovative components such as the projectors’ wall mounting capabilities, the NP Short Throw Series enables users to bring new technology into an existing space that requires some creativity during installation.”
The NP500WS and NP600S projectors include the following features:
The NP500WS and NP600S projectors come with a standard 2-year limited parts and labor warranty. Registered education users qualify for a 3-year limited parts and labor warranty.
Through March 31, 2009, registered Star Student users will receive $40 cash back reward incentives for each projector on their schools’ debit cards. Additionally, registered users qualify for a 4-year limited parts and labor warranty. For more information on NEC’s Star Student program, visit www.necstarstudent.com.
The projectors will be available for April 2009 shipment at an estimated street price of $1199 each.
