NEC Display Solutions of America, a provider of commercial LCD projectors and displays, announces its new NEC PE Series of entry-installation laser projectors, bringing 4,500 lumens and features like filter-free, maintenance-free design and ultra-quiet operation for customers who need a high-resolution image at low price points.
The PE455WL and PE455UL both feature NEC’s sealed optical system that allows for a filter free design and results in “the only truly no-maintenance LCD laser projector in its class,” according to the company.
While typical projectors in this range generate an average of more than 30 decibels, the PE455WL and PE455UL will generate 24 decibels of noise in normal mode.
“In response to customer demand, we’ve expanded our entry installation laser projector lineup with the new PE Series to provide a low-maintenance and flexible solution for projector replacements or new installations in a wider variety of markets,” said Ryan Pitterle, Product Manager, NEC Display Solutions.
“With advanced features like a sealed optical engine, extremely quiet operation, lens shift and 4K-ready processing, the PE Series is ideal for K-12 and higher education classrooms, as well as conference rooms or anywhere a large image is needed. The new PE Series models will be NEC’s most affordable laser projectors to date.”
The PE455WL features WXGA 1280×800 resolution, while the PE455UL projects a native WUXGA 1920×1200 image.
Additional NEC PE Series features include:
- LCD technology for brilliant colors
- Manual horizontal and vertical lens shift for easier installations
- 1.6x zoom lens for flexible placement
- Quick start up and shut down
- LAN port for network control and asset management
- Optional Wireless Module (NP05LM1) with MultiPresenter capability for up to 16 simultaneous connections.
- Constant Brightness Mode for consistent light output for the life of the projector
The PE455WL and PE455UL are backed by NEC’s industry-leading 5-year/20,000-hour warranty with NEC’s InstaCare replacement program included.
The PE Series projectors begin shipping in September at a minimum advertised price of $1,999 and $2,599 for the PE455WL and PE455UL respectively. For additional information on the new NEC PE Series, visit the company’s website.
