NEC Adds Five Projectors to LT and VT Series

Jan 5, 2006 8:00 AM

The LT380 digital projector features integrated RJ-45 input, XGA 1024x768 native resolution, and a brightness of 3000 lumens.

NEC has added five new projectors to its best-selling product line. NEC's LT280 and LT380 LCD projectors feature integrated wired and wireless LAN compatibility. The VT48, VT480, and VT580 LCD projectors are affordably priced while still boasting such essential features as high light output, quick setup, and wall color and keystone correction. Estimated street prices start at $795 after rebate, setting an unprecedented new price band for a brand-new product line in the projector category.

"Up until now our industry made a tradeoff—offer cutting-edge technology or an affordable price," says David Woolf, vice president of marketing for NEC. "NEC's new line of VT and LT projectors challenges this assumption and delivers exactly what our customers are asking for: breakthrough features and performance at an affordable price."

Real-Time Wireless Presentations
NEC is now offering two digital projectors with powerful wireless and wired LAN connections, which provide high-speed, content-rich communication to the audience. The LT280 and LT380 projectors are wireless LAN IEEE 802.11b/g compatible, with integrated RJ-45 input, which provides quick connection to the wired network and allows the user to perform remote diagnostics to check the status of the projectors.

Remote diagnostics enable the user to monitor and make adjustments to the projectors via the network from remote locations, making these perfect installation projectors for large corporations, small/medium businesses, and government and educational settings. The two projectors are also extremely easy to use, with features including email notifications that are sent to inform the user when the lamp approaches the end of its life.

Rounding out the additional unique features of the NEC LT280 and LT380 projectors are enhanced security features, lamp saver technologies (including built-in sensors that protect the lamp and projector from overheating), advanced video processing, and extensive input capabilities (including DVI-D with HDCP on the LT380). The LT280 has a brightness of 2500 ANSI lumens, while the LT380 is 20 percent brighter at 3000 lumens. Both projectors offer XGA 1024x768 native resolution.

VT Series Projectors
The VT series projectors offer ample brightness and resolution at a price uncommonly low for this category. The VT48 is a bright 1600 ANSI lumens, while the VT480 and VT580 are even brighter at 2000 ANSI lumens. The VT series projectors display crystal clear images; the VT48 and VT480 are SVGA 800x600 native resolution, while the VT580 is XGA 1024x768 native resolution.

The VT series projectors are easy to use and affordably priced for a broad range of applications with essential features that presenters need in order to connect with their audience—features such as built-in wall color correction that allows you to properly display an image even on non-white surfaces and keystone correction technology to project a square image.

The VT48, VT480, and VT580 feature intuitive plug-and-play setup and operation, along with quick startup that lets you begin presenting in seconds. These projectors also feature a lamp life of up to 4,000 hours via the Eco-mode technology, while keeping the noise level as low as 25dB. Each projector is lightweight and portable enough to be easily moved from room to room, making them the perfect choice for educational settings, growing businesses, and corporations.
