New Projector Provides Home Theater Video Quality in Boardrooms, Educational Settings
NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading stand-alone provider of commercial and residential LCD, plasma, and projector displays, announced today the NP3151W, a 4000-lumen, high-brightness LCD projector for installation in boardrooms, training rooms, lecture halls and meeting rooms. 

The projector's 1280 x 800 WXGA resolution supports users with widescreen notebook computers because the entire 16:10 image is natively displayed.  Additionally, with the NP3151's ability to connect to wireless networks, users are able to show and control presentations on the fly without cables from their wireless notebooks. 

As HD video content is increasingly displayed in corporate and education settings, the NP3151W has been designed to deliver home theater-level video quality for professional environments.  The NP3151W features advanced HQVTM  video processing, detail enhancement, contrast enhancement, advanced signal noise filtering and advanced technologies to eliminate undesirable deinterlacing imperfections.  This ensures the audience not only sees content clearly, but is able to engage and be immersed in the presentation.  Optional quick-mount (bayonet style) lenses allow flexible placement of the projector to suit the needs of the room, allowing a screen size from 40 inches to 500 inches.

"Customers in presentation environments often desire a high-quality image with better contrast, image detail and motion-video clarity," said Rich McPherson, Product Manager for NEC Display Solutions. "This attention to video quality creates a more professional environment and captivating experience."

The NP3151W takes advantage of Windows Network Projector functionality within Windows VistaTM  via the wireless adapter or integrated RJ45 without the need for additional proprietary software. USB connection for a mouse and keyboard allow desktop control when using the NP3151W to connect to a remote desktop via a wired/wireless network connection. Remote diagnostics enable the administrator to monitor and make adjustments to the projector via the network remotely.

The quick power-off function also protects the lamp during the cool-down period if the projector is accidentally unplugged or the power strip is switched off.  Ease of use is further enhanced with the included remote control. The NP3151W weighs 16.1 pounds with a low noise output of 31 decibels in ECO ModeTM.

The NP3151W will begin shipping in March 2008 with an estimated street price of $4,999. The projector comes with a standard two-year limited warranty, including the first year with InstaCareTM  (repair and return in three business days or next business day exchange).
