PH1400U delivers outstanding picture quality in all environments

NEC updates flagship PH Series installation projector


Munich, 10 June 2013 NEC Display Solutions Europe has unveiled the latest addition to its portfolio of top-of-the-range projectors. The PH1400U is a 3-Chip Large Venue projector designed for installations that demand the highest levels of heavy-duty usage and unique picture quality at the highest resolutions.

The PH1400U projector delivers ultra high brightness (13,500 ANSI lumen) and brilliant clarity thanks to its WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution, and the unique 3-Chip DLP system brings an outstanding visual experience. This, combined with the excellent 10-Bit Hollywood Quality Video signal processing, a choice of six optional bayonet lenses and single projector 3D capability makes it a highly flexible option for any high-end user.

"The launch of the PH1400U takes installation projectors to a new level for corporate and higher education users, as well as digital signage or rental and staging environments," said Gerd Kaiser, Product Line Manager Large Venue Projectors at NEC Display Solutions Europe. "The capabilities this product brings to the market are unrivalled, for instance stacking two can provide an astonishing 27,000 ANSI lumens of brightness. Its feature set allows the projector to be customised perfectly in each and every application. These innovations epitomise the message behind our long-lasting tradition of performance and ensure the best picture quality, ultimate flexibility and a low total cost of ownership."

Alongside the stunning performance comes easy installation – even in challenging venues – thanks to features such as motorised lens shift, geometric correction, stacking function, built-in edge blending and lens memory. Similarly, easy connectivity is ensured thanks to a vast number of connectors, including HDMI and DisplayPort options and a host of networking, analogue and digital connection terminals. It also utilises a dual-lamp system for added redundancy and the full metal cabinet brings added reliability.

As well as delivering outstanding performance, the PH1400U provides added flexibility by being one of the world’s first projectors that can use STv2 standard level extension modules. These are based on the Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) enabling greater flexibility through a range of extension modules, including a 3G-SDI single board computer (SBC) and HDBaseT receiver.

NEC Display Solutions Europe offers a three-year pan-European service warranty and the lamp is covered for six months or 1,000 hours, whichever comes first.
