NEC Display Solutions of America, Inc., a leading provider of commercial LCD projectors and displays, today announced the launch of two new projector models: the P525WL and P525UL. Both projectors provide a flexible, affordable, no-maintenance solution for projector installations in higher education classrooms, conference rooms and other locations where a large, high-quality image is desired.
The P525WL replaces NEC's P502WL-2, and the P525UL replaces NEC's P502HL-2. For each new model, the imaging unit has been changed from DLP to LCD technology. "These projectors deliver brilliant colors, and NEC's original sealed optical technology introduces a significant advancement, eliminating the need for a filter in LCD-based projectors," says Ryan Pitterle, Product Manager, NEC Display Solutions. "The P502WL-2 and P502HL-2 have been very successful, but we've seized the opportunity to combine LCD technology along with our unique cooling system to improve color performance for our customers — while maintaining the maintenance-free operation they want."
Featuring 5,200 center lumens, these two LCD models provide clear, dynamic images in high-ambient light conditions, and the laser light source offers a minimum of 20,000 hours of reliable life, which lowers total cost of ownership and reduces maintenance. By utilizing Constant Brightness mode, the P525WL and P525UL are capable of delivering consistent-looking images for the life of the projector. Additionally, these 4K-ready projectors support UHD signals, while WXGA and WUXGA native resolutions produce impressive high-definition images.
Like other NEC P Series projectors, the P525WL and P525UL offer a unique combination of installation series features at a low cost, including manual horizontal and vertical lens shift, 1.6x zoom lens and HDBaseT input. Quick start-up and shut-down ease operations for users, and the projectors' quiet operation enables distraction-free presentations.
Both models offer advanced networking capability and improved wireless collaboration capability. They feature Dual HDMI for seamless switching between Blu-ray, computer or other digital sources; USB with 2.0A support for powering third-party devices; LAN port for network control and asset management; and Optional Wireless Module (NP05LM1) with MultiPresenter capability for up to 16 simultaneous connections.
Designed and built to last, the P525WL and P525UL are backed by a 5-year warranty with NEC's InstaCare replacement program included. They will begin shipping in January at a minimum advertised price of $2,299 (P525WL) and $3,099 (P525UL). For additional information and specs, please visit NEC Display Solutions.
