NEC launches NP905 projector with wireless networking and MPEG2 USB playback

Home cinema


NEC has announced its NP905 projector, aimed primarily at the business and educational sectors, which offers wireless networking and MP£G2 playback from USB devices.

The NP905 offers 3,000 ANSI lumens of brightness, 500:1 contrast ratio, HQV (Hollywood Quality Video) technology for higher quality images, 1.2-times optical zoom, keystone correction, 3D Reform function which compensates for diagonal distortion, and wall colour correction which alters the colour balance dependent upon what surface is being projected on to.

The projector should be able to handle high definition content, and has an HDMI input, though its native resolution of 1,024 x 768 pixels isn’t ideal for such display without scaling.

Other useful features include picture-in-picture / side-by-side modes, where two separate video inputs can be displayed together.

This certainly isn’t a projector to revolutionise your home cinema experience, but don’t be surprised to see it sitting in a few office boardrooms.

Available this month for £1,209.
