NEC launches enhanced laser installation projector

The PX1004UL laser projector is ideal for scenarios in which total cost of ownership and maintenance are crucial


Munich, 25 October, 2016NEC Display Solutions Europe today launched the PX1004UL laser phosphor projector. Offering significant user and display benefits, features include outstanding picture quality with 4K picture processing as well as maintenance-free operation for up to 20,000 hours. With up to 10,000 ANSI lumens brightness, the PX1004UL completes NEC’s Solid State Light (SSL) source line-up of projectors with 5,000, 6,000, 8,000, 10,000 and 12,000 ANSI lumens.

4K signal support offers a future-proof and superb picture quality option with enhanced colour reproduction and high brightness. Designed for 24/7 use, the combination of Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology and native WUXGA resolution ensures unwavering colour performance, projecting a long-term vibrant image without loss of brightness. The installation projector is ideally suited for large venue applications including higher education, museums and large corporate environments, as well as rental and staging uses.

Using SSL technology, the PX1004UL delivers up to 20,000 hours of operational use. Laser technology also eliminates the need for lamp replacement, reducing time-consuming maintenance. In addition, the laser projector utilises a filter-less design technology and is essentially dust proof, removing the need for filter cleaning or replacement. These features combined with low overall power consumption provide exceptional reliability and virtually zero maintenance. The PX1004UL projector is therefore an attractive option in scenarios where total cost of ownership is crucial and maintenance access is limited.

Gerd Kaiser, Senior Product Line Manager for Large Venue Projectors at NEC Display Solutions Europe, said: “Low total cost of ownership is essential to many sectors where installation projectors are used. The introduction of the filter-less designed PX1004UL, which doesn’t require the replacement of lamps, offers a significant advantage. The laser projector helps organisations deliver outstanding image quality whilst keeping maintenance costs low.”

The projector offers easy and flexible installation options with support for third party lenses. This enables the PX1004UL to be used as a drop-in replacement without any reprogramming. The free landscape and portrait orientation function of the projector makes it suitable for use at any angle, while the geometric control function makes the projector perfect for projection onto curved surfaces. Furthermore, the projector supports automatic camera-based stacking and blending. This gives users quick and easy multi-screen setup capabilities, plus support for large presentation pictures.
