With its mobile DLP projectors NEC NP64 and NP43, NEC Display Solutions has launched the successors to its NP62 and NP41. Both models feature an autofocus function and simple operation with long lamp life and a brightness of 3000 and 2300 ANSI lumens, respectively, with a contrast ratio of 1600:1. Both the NP64 and NP43 deliver images in XGA resolution (1024×768).
Thanks to automatic power-on, signal detection, automatic focus and auto keystone correction, the projectors are extremely easy and quick to set up and NEC says an Eco-mode lowers the operating cost by extending lamp life up to 3500 hours and reducing power consumption. In addition, NEC has integrated a “carbon savings meter” to support GreenAV corporate initiatives by encouraging users to operate the projectors in Eco-mode and calculates the CO2 savings.
For some traveling faculty, auto “everything” can reduce angst for self-service setups. The carbon savings meter is an interesting feature that might (hopefully) make individuals aware that small choices can add up to big differences.
