CHICAGO November 16, 2010 - NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today its new U Series with the 3000-lumen U300X and 3100-lumen U310W. The complete elimination of shadows and glare typically found with standard projection systems is accomplished by mounting these ultra short throw projectors to the wall above the screen, making them ideal for education environments using interactive or standard whiteboards.
The 3D-ready U300X and U310W are built with powerful DLP® and DLP Link technologies from Texas Instruments. For corporate customers that lack the space required for a standard projector, these projectors offer a compelling alternative. They offer XGA and WXGA resolutions, respectively, and brightness up to 3100 lumens. Their connectivity includes HDMI and dual computer inputs, as well as variable audio out to connect the projector to an external speaker and control the volume through the projector's remote control.
"NEC is proud to debut this advanced technology to our customers in the education and corporate markets," said Rich McPherson, Product Manager for projectors at NEC Display Solutions. "The ability to easily integrate these models into classrooms and simplify the presenting process is our ultimate goal."
U Series models make use of a variety of eco-friendly features that lengthen the life of the projector, saving money and energy in the process. ECO ModeTM technology extends lamp life up to 3000 hours while lowering power consumption. Power management controls contribute to energy savings by automatically turning the unit off when an incoming signal is not detected from any of the inputs, while quick start (20 seconds) and shutdown allow for immediate use and power off functionality without the need for a cooling period.
The U300X and U310W projectors include the following features:
The U300X and U310W projectors will be available for December 2010 shipment at an estimated street price of $1,199 and $1,299, respectively. Both projectors come with a standard 2-year limited parts and labor warranty, including the first year with InstaCareâ„¢ (repair and return in three business days or next business day exchange).
