NEC shows 2000 lumens LED projector prototype

NEC Display showed off what it says is the brightest LED-based projector at InfoComm. Rated at 2,000 lumens, it uses multiple LEDs for the red, green and blue light sources. Dubbed Sirius, the prototype projector is also capable of displaying 98 percent of the Adobe RGB color gamut. This compares favorably to a traditional front projector that can reproduce about 60 percent of the color gamut, NEC says.

The biggest challenge was adjusting the white balance and LED temperature control, the company added.

There are no current plans to bring the projector to market, but NEC says it plans to raise its brightness to between 3,000 and 4,000 lumens or the brightness of current consumer, LCD projectors. [via Tech-On]
