NEC updates NC900C digital projector


NEC Display Solutions of America announced updates to its NC900C digital-cinema projection solution for smaller screens in theatres, art houses, mobile cinemas, universities and public buildings.

The NC900C projector delivers 2K DCI-compliant cinema quality, which translates to an image brightness of 14-ft-L (using a 1.8 gain screen) on screens up to 30 feet (nine meters), while adhering to DCI color specifications. The compact DCI-certified projector utilizes the new S2K chip set from Texas Instruments.

The NEC Integrated Media Server (IMS) offers a trouble-free, one-stop solution for exhibitors and other organizations, while the projector’s High Frame Rate (HFR) capability offers excellent picture quality. Its all-in-one Integrated Media Block (IMB) and 2 TB RAID5 Storage Server offer versatile connectivity and savings with fewer peripheral devices needed.

Among the key features of the NC900C projector are: a three-chip DMD reflection method of projection; an easy dual lamp system which ensures no black screen, using two 350W lamp bulbs; resolution of 2048 x 1080; several bayonet lens options for easy installation, enabling motorized zoom, focus and shift capabilities; and ability to show 3D and alternative content.

NEC is in the final stages of earning DCI CTP certification for the NC900C projector. DCI compliance is expected to be achieved by the end of November.

The NC900C will be available in December 2012 with a two-year limited warranty (for U.S. and Canada only), including parts and labor. The estimated street price in North America is $29,999 and includes projector, lens and IMS.
