NEC Display Solutions just announced eight new XGA (1024×768) and WXGA (1280×800) resolution projectors aimed at both classrooms and meeting rooms. The light (about 6 pounds), portable ME Series projectors include 3,000-, 3,300-, 3,600- and 4,000-lumen options and all of them include a 1.7x zoom lens. All of them have VGA, two HDMI and one USB port as well as built-in 20-watt speakers and IR, LAN and RS232 control.
The entire line can use NEC’s MultiPresenter, a multi-user (up to 16 connections from smart phones, tablets and PCs) collaborative screen-sharing solution (wireless) that allows students and instructors to share images, files, documents, presentations and more simultaneously over a wired or wireless network. Operating system agnostic, it combines users of Windows, MAC, iOS and Android operating systems onto a single screen.
The new ME Series projectors also feature advanced geometry adjustments such as horizontal and vertical keystone, cornerstone, and pincushion, which can be easily and quickly made to keep a squared image on the screen, regardless of whether the projector is moved from room to room or permanently installed.
Finally, all of them have NEC’s Quick Star, have a 9,000 hour lamp and and a three-year labor warranty; and will be available in February 2017. Prices and links to each projector are here:
