NEC intros NP projectors

NEC on Monday announced the introduction of two new portable short throw projectors, the NP500WS and NP600S, meant for use in classrooms and conference rooms. The identical-looking projectors share the same 600:1 contrast ratio and are rated to operate for 4,000 hours in ECO Mode. The NP500WS is a wide aspect ratio projector, offering a 1280x800 native resolution at 2,100 lumens of brightness, while the NP600S has a 1024x768 resolution at 2,600 lumens. Either has closed captioning capabilities and network control connectivity while being capable of projecting images up to 77 inches in size onto screens from less than four feet away.

A VGA input with an auto power-on feature will detect a signal and switch the projector on, eliminating the need for a remote control. NEC also synchronizes the projectors with the majority of computer signals and allows users to quickly optimize the image. Either is designed for wall-mounting applications with an optional kit, and an automatic vertical keystone correction feature lets users adjust for off-center positioning by tilting the image up or down.

Inputs include VGA and DVI-I along with an Ethernet jack for connecting to local networks. Sound is delivered via a single 7-watt speaker.

Both the NP500WS and NP600S will ship to stores in April, with prices for either fixed at $1,199.
