NEC Display Solutions announced the expansion of its new V Series projectors with the 2,600-lumen V260 and V260X models. The two mobile projectors join the V300X and are aimed at classrooms and small meeting rooms, according to the company.

NEC's V260 and V260X are SVGA and XGA models, respectively. They both feature BrilliantColor technology, which uses video processing and the latest Texas Instruments DLP engine to deliver more realistic colors with richer blacks and a 2,000:1 contrast ratio. An input panel includes dual VGA, HDMI, and RJ-45 ports.

"Designed with the environment in mind, the new V Series projectors offer multiple cost-saving features such as quick start, auto power-on via the RGB input connector, and direct power-off with no cooling required after shutdown," said Rich McPherson, senior product manager for projectors at NEC, in a statement. "Additionally, the V260 and V260X offer a filter-free design that will eliminate the hassle and time spent monitoring and changing filters. This is an exceptional benefit to those locations that install a large quantity of projectors."

The V260 and V260X also a rated lamp life up to 5,000 hours in eco mode, 3D support, a 7W speaker, built-in color correction presets, and closed captioning. Virtual Remote (DDC/CI) allows users to control the projector directly from a computer without the need for additional control cables. The V260X includes Crestron Roomview, which provides remote projector management, including the ability to switch the power on and off for multiple projectors connected to a network.

The V260 and V260X ship with a two-year limited parts and labor warranty and will be available in June 2011 at an estimated street price of $439 and $548, respectively, according to the company. The lamp is covered for one year or 500 hours, whichever comes first.
