NEC launches first member of robust projector range

NEC Display Solutions Europe has bolstered its professional installation projector line with flagship model the PH1000U.

The PH1000U is the first member of the PH Series and is a heavy-duty projector designed for rental and staging applications, fixed installations in conference halls and higher educational environments, or events.

It is powered by a 3-chip DLP system and is an 11,000 ANSI lumen WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution projector. It also utilises a dual-lamp system. This is combined with the Integrated Device Technology HQV high-performance 10bit signal processing and scaling system as well as edge blending and stacking. It produces superior video processing using pixel-based, motion-adaptive de-interlacing to remove undesirable motion artefacts.

The PH1000U can use STv2 standard level extension modules based on the Open Pluggable Specification (OPS). This is the second model in NEC's projector line-up to offer OPS support, which offers a range of extension modules, including an HD/SD-SDI and single board computer (SBC).

The Integrated Rigging and Stacking mount ensures that the PH Series can be installed and configured in a variety of ways.

Input is handled via a range of connectivity options, including DisplayPort, HDMI and RGB connectors, as well as NEC’s Projector Viewer function. Users are also able to stream content over the network from Windows network drives and administrators can monitor and control the projectors through a wired connection or over an optional Wi-Fi module.
