on October 21, 2013
Chicago, IL -- NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the NC1100L Digital Cinema projector, a laser-light source projector targeted to exhibitors with small screens or projection booths as well art houses, mobile cinemas, theaters in universities and public buildings.
As part of NEC's Digital Cinema Projector Series, the NC1100L projector using a laser-light source delivers 2K DCI-compliant cinema quality, which translates to an image brightness of 14-ft-L (using a 1.8 gain screen) on screens up to 36ft./11m in DCI color. It is the world's first Digital Cinema-compliant projector with laser light source built-in.
The NC1100L Digital Cinema projector will be demonstrated at ShowEast on October 21-24 at the Westin Diplomat & Spa in Hollywood, Fla.
"Driving innovation in Digital Cinema is part of what NEC Display does on a daily basis, and as part of our mandate, we're offering a projector that meets the needs of more exhibitors," said Jim Reisteter, General Manager of Digital Cinema at NEC Display Solutions. "Our new NC1100L projector is the light source of the future. The unit's reliability, maintenance-free operation and approximately 20,000 hours (*) of lifetime result in an overall lower total cost of ownership."
The NC1100L projector features 2K (2048 x 1080) resolutions, 3D capabilities and 3-chip DMD reflection method. It is easy to operate with user-friendly accessibility.
The NEC Integrated Media Server (IMS) offers a trouble-free, one-stop solution for exhibitors and other organizations, while the projector's High Frame Rate (HFR) capability offers excellent picture quality.
