NEC has unveiled the NP2000 and NP1000 wireless projectors, designed primarily for the serious home cinema buff or for commercial or public spaces.
The projectors offer up an impressive brightness of 4000 ANSI Lumens for the NP2000 and 3500 ANSI Lumens for the NP1000. With five lens options, NEC claims the projectors can produce one of the largest ranges of image size currently available, varying from a 30″ diagonal for rear projection applications to over 500″ – probably only of use if you intend using in a large exhibition space. Lenses are installed using a bayonet fitting, so swapping a lens is just like changing a light bulb. Vertical and manual lens shift allows flexible projector placement, from a distance of 2.5 to 68.5 feet.
Wireless capabilities mean you don’t need to directly wire up your PC to the projector for demonstrations and you can make adjustments to your projection via a network. Both models are HD compatible and feature heat sensor and Direct Power on/off to extend the lamp life, along with a number of security features.
No price as yet, but they should be in stores in May of this year.
