NEC Display Solutions of America announced today eight new XGA- and WXGA-resolution projectors, improving classrooms and meeting spaces with the next generation of multi-purpose LCD models.
The light-weight, portable ME Series projectors include 3,000-, 3,300-, 3,600- and 4,000-lumen options that meet the color reproduction needs of the K-12 classroom. The units include a 1.7x zoom lens for added installation flexibility, making it easy for new and replacement situations.
Supporting collaboration and screen sharing are key drivers of the new ME Series projectors. They utilize NEC's MultiPresenter, a multi-user (up to 16 connections from smart phones, tablets and PCs) collaborative screen-sharing solution that allows students and instructors to share images, files, documents, presentations, and more simultaneously over a wired or wireless network. Operating system agnostic, it combines users of Windows, MAC, iOS and Android operating systems onto a single screen.
The new ME Series projectors also feature advanced geometry adjustments such as horizontal and vertical keystone, cornerstone, and pincushion, which can be easily and quickly made to keep a squared image on the screen, regardless of whether the projector is moved from room to room or permanently installed.
"We recognize the need for projectors that deliver great presentations and foster collaboration to enhance learning environments," said Richard McPherson, Senior Product Manager of Projectors at NEC Display. "The ME Series projectors give educational institutions and other sectors top-line color reproduction without breaking their budgets."
Among the other benefits of the ME Series projectors:
- Quick Start, allowing for projection in seconds
- Extended lamp life (up to 9,000 hours) and fewer lamp and filter replacements, which help lower users' total cost of ownership
- Simple replacement of legacy LCD projectors with same footprint, lens position, and throw angle
The ME Series projectors ship with a 3-year limited parts and labor warranty, and will be available in February 2017 at a minimum advertised price as follows:
- NP-ME301W – $629
- NP-ME301X – $529
