Posted by at 11:08 am on September 3, 2008

NEC Display has annoumced four projectors to supplement their NP Series. The NP400, NP500, NP600 and NP500W provide bright images and wired network connectivity to users who require remote monitoring and control.  All four projectors include built-in closed captioning to decode and display text information from a video for the hearing impaired. Each projector allows for maximum brightness when there is limited lighting control, with the NP400 at 2500 lumens, NP500 at 3000 lumens, NP600 at 3500 lumens and the NP500W at 3000 lumens. The projectors are XGA native resolution, with the exception of the wide-format (WXGA) NP500W.

“These new entry-level networkable projectors provide key features at a reasonable price, with each projector being a step up from the next, giving users flexibility in finding a projector which best suits their specific needs,” said Rich McPherson, Product Manager at NEC Display Solutions. “Their vast number of features coupled with affordable pricing make them ideal for users who require a cost-effective yet innovative solution.”

Some of the features of the NP400, NP500, NP600 and NP500W

  • Built-in wired networking, which allows remote monitoring and control of the projector over the network
  • Closed captioning, which enables users to display text information for the hearing impaired
  • Automatic Vertical Keystone Correction, which allows the projector to be tilted up or down and still produce a square image without the need to make manual image adjustments
  • DVI-I connector, which provides a second RGB input that is either analog or digital
  • 9-pin RS232 connection, which provides a standard connection type instead of a proprietary connector
  • Comprehensive input/output panel
  • ECO Mode technology, which increases lamp life by up to 40 percent for up to 4000 hours
  • Virtual Remote with DDC/CI, which provides control of the projector without a monitoring system or remote control

The NP400, NP500, NP600 and NP500W come standard with a two-year limited parts and labor warranty, including a one-year/500-hour lamp warranty. Registered education users qualify for a three-year limited parts and labor warranty. The projectors will be available for October 2008 shipment at $899, $1099, $1499 and $999, respectively.
