NEC announced new NP Portable Series projectors

NEC NP510W NEC Display Solutions of America , a leading stand-alone provider of commercial LCD displays and projectors , announced today the NP310, NP410, NP410W, NP510 and NP510W portable projectors, successors to the previous-generation NP Portable Series. These new products are equipped with a rich set of green features that aim to minimize total cost of ownership and are targeted for education and corporate users.

With up to 5000 hours of lamp life, NP Portable Series projectors benefit from extended lifecycles. The projectors’ new filter requires less maintenance and allows up to three times the existing filter life. Additionally, their carbon savings meter calculates the positive effects of operating in ECO ModeTM, which is encouraged by an optional message upon the units’ startup. The remote control includes an ECO Mode button, making the switch between settings easy for any user.

Business and education users will favor those advanced features, not only for their long-term impact but also for their functionality in the present.”
