NEC Display Solutions of America today announced the launch of two new projector models: the P525WL and P525UL. Both projectors are aimed at higher education classrooms, conference rooms and meeting rooms.
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. Featuring 5,200 center lumens, these two LCD models use a laser light source specified at 20,000 hours of operation. Additionally, these 4K-ready projectors support UHD signals, while WXGA (1366×768) and WUXGA (1920×1200) native resolutions.
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. 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 have a five-year warranty with NEC’s InstaCare replacement program included. They will begin shipping in January for $2,299 (P525WL) and $3,099 (P525UL). Here are more detailed specs.
