NEC adds PX Series to professional projectors

NEC Display Solutions Europe has bolstered its professional installation projector line-up with its PX Series that can use extension modules based on the Open Pluggable Specification (OPS).

The heavy-duty projectors are designed for fixed installations in higher educational environments or critical signage applications or events.

Based on DMD DLP Chip technology, the PX Series boasts up to WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution, a contrast ration of 2,100:1 and a brightness of between 7,000 and 8,000 ANSI lumen, dependent on model. It also incorporates 10-bit HQV colour processing.

Flexibility on signage applications can be offered via support for the NEC built-in STv2 Single board computer, which utilises Intel’s OPS.

As well as DisplayPort support, all the projectors feature a range of display input options, including HDMI, S-video, RGB and RCA connectors, and include NEC’s Projector Viewer function, which allow users to show PowerPoint files, PDF files, images or movies via the network without any need for a presentation PC or directly from an USB memory stick.
As well as being able to stream content over the network, administrators are able to monitor and control these projectors through a wired connection or over an optional Wi-Fi module.
The PX Series units will be shipped without a lens. Current NP4000/NP4100 lenses can be used for the PX800X and PX700W models, while new lenses include a lens memory function, which adjusts the lens position automatically, and individually, according to the input signal or previous settings.

As well as a lens shutter, the new range includes an automatic dual-lamp system for safe operation and, with NEC’s ECO Mode technology, the PX Series projectors' lamp life is extended up to 2,500 hours, while the filter needs to be changed after 10,000 hours of use.
