NEC Targets HOW With 11,000-Lumen, 3-Chip DLP Projector

Dubbed the PH1000U, NEC’s 3-chip DLP projector uses three 0.96″ WUXGA (1920×1200) resolution DMDs to garner a brightness spec of 11,000 lumens and 2000:1 contrast ratio. It uses a 400-watt lamp and has a 320-watt Eco-mode for low light environments. NEC says the PH1000U uses Integrated Device Technology HQV, a video processing and scaling system designed for computer signals, as well as standard video or HD video — so all inout signals can be scaled up to the WUXGA resolution.

Targeted at HOW installs, the projector has an Eco-mode that allows it to run lower light output levels at night, such as during youth choir performances and special services. This Eco-mode allows it to generate nearly 30 percent less power. In addition, one cool feature is that the projector includes an OPS slot — an industry-wide standardization in option slots that supports multiple input cards, including an HD/SD-SDI and single board computers (SBC).

Designed to be stacked, the PH1000U has optional lenses that include both short throw (0.67:1) and long throw (6.96:1) applications so you can locate the projector in the balcony of the worship hall far from the eyes and ears of the HOW audience.
