NEC launches digital cinema laser projector

NEC Display Solutions Europe has launched a digital cinema laser projector called the NC1201L, which is suitable for use in boothless cinema installs.

The NC1201L features NEC’s sealing technology, which has a sealed optical engine and laser engine with circulating air cooling, which reduces maintenance requirements by minimising the opportunity for dust and smoke to enter the optical block.

An Integrated Media Server (IMS) is included as standard, it has a 2TB net capacity, fast upload of movies via USB 3.0 or Gigabit Ethernet, possible during playback, and support for playing movies directly from Network Attached Storage (NAS).

The laser has a typical lifetime of 20,000 hours, and can be installed either on the ceiling or floor.

The NEC NC1201L projector will be available from Autumn 2015.
