CHICAGO - July 21, 2010
NC1200C, NC2000C, NC3200S Digital Cinema Projectors Meet CTP Requirements
NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today that its entire line (NC1200C, NC2000C and NC3200S) of digital cinema projectors are the first in the industry to reach full Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) Compliance. The new projectors include the NC1200C at 9,000 lumens of brightness for screen sizes of up to 46-feet wide, the NC2000C at 17,000 lumens for screens up to 65-feet wide and the ultra-bright NC3200S at 31,000 lumens for screens up to 105-feet wide.

The tests were completed by the Research Institute for Digital Media and Content at Keio University (hereafter, DMC) in Japan, which is one of three entities licensed by Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC to perform the CTP tests. NEC’s digital cinema projectors were certified in:

  • (*1) Digital Cinema System Specification (DCSS) Version 1.2 as of March 7, 2008
  • (*2) DCSS CTP Version 1.1 as of May 8, 2009

"We are beyond proud to be the first digital cinema manufacturer to have achieved this significant accomplishment," said Pierre Richer, President and C.O.O. of NEC Display Solutions.  "To have a full product line that meets the needs of today's exhibitors is not only essential, but expected. NEC continually proves its place in the industry by capitalizing on stringent standards and providing innovative programs to enhance our products."

"We are very pleased to confirm that all the NEC digital cinema projectors (NC1200C, NC2000C and NC3200S), featuring Texas Instruments' Series 2 DLP Cinema® technology have passed all the requirements of the CTP," said Kunitake Kaneko, assistant professor of DMC.

NEC's DCI Compliance allows exhibitors to capitalize on current and future growth opportunities.
