Munich, 24 June 2013 NEC Display Solutions Europe will be showcasing a range of innovative products and technologies for the digital cinema industry at CineEurope 2013 from June 24 to 27 in Barcelona.

The highlights at Suite D will include the first NEC 4K laser projector on the market in Europe and a Silencer Housing for the compact NC900C digital cinema projector. Also on show will be NEC’s 2K and 4K 3D digital cinema projectors, venue signage solutions and ticketing displays. From ticketing over concessions to cinema projection, NEC Display Solutions will demonstrate how its display solutions optimise and modernise the whole cinema experience.

For the first time on any projector system, NEC’s 4K laser projector delivers outstanding resolution for colours beyond the DCI or Adobe RGB specifications, whilst significantly reducing operating costs for cinemas of the future. With extremely wide colour gamut, stable brightness and premium 4K image quality the NEC NC1040L will captivate audiences with crisp video images. Customers will be able to create outstanding images on screens up to 9.5 metres with up to 20,000 laser light hours of expected life.

Another highlight will be a new Silencer Housing for the NEC NC900C DCI-certified digital cinema projector. This is the first projector to incorporate the S2K chipset and to use a NSH Dual-Lamp system, which makes it easy to implement and maintain and thus generates a lowered total cost of ownership (TCO). The Silencer Housing guarantees whisper quiet operation and eliminates the need for a projection booth. It is also easy to mount, without the need for an external ventilation system, allowing future cinemas to be built without the need for a projection booth.

NEC will demonstrate its one-stop Integrated Media Server (IMS) solution on the stand. With IMS, customers can download, store and stream digital content straight from digital projectors. IMS comes with an integrated RAID5 server system of 2TB net capacity for convenient library management and faster access with full High Frame Rate (HFR) support.

Also on display will be the NEC NC3240S projector, which is designed for auditoriums with large screens (up to 32 metres wide) and provides a premium image quality and brightness. The projector delivers precise 4K resolution, 3D capabilities and high contrast images (2000:1) with a newly designed separate cooling system. Built for the discerning digital cinema industry, the projector incorporates high picture quality, innovation and reliability in combination with low cost of ownership.

“Currently there is no cinema exhibition and distribution show in Europe that provides the opportunity to meet more European theatre and cinema decision-makers in one place than at CineEurope. It is the best location to pre-launch our 4K laser projector in Europe and to showcase our range of advanced 2K and 4K digital cinema projectors and venue signage as well as ticketing display solutions,“ said Gerd Kaiser, Product Line Manager Large Venue Projectors at NEC Display Solutions Europe.

“CineEurope is a highlight for NEC as we look forward to sharing new products and solutions with customers, partners and the whole industry. Attending the show along side outstanding speakers from the European Union and film industry, we are proud to showcase our digital signage solutions, which are changing the cinema industry today and enhancing the total cinema experience.”
