The NEC PX750U produces 7,500 lumens of brightness and can be stacked for up to 30,000 combined lumens.
NEC has launched a series of new high-resolution, high-light-output projectors designed for fixed installation applications in large venues, such as lecture halls and campus theaters.
The new model in the series, the single-chip DLP-based NEC VX750U, offers a native resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 (WUXGA), a brightness of 7,500 lumens, and a contrast ratio of 2,100:1. It can also be stacked with up to three additional units to produce a combined brightness of 30,000 lumens.
The projector offers wired and optional wireless connectivity for both network monitoring and network transmission of images, with support for Windows Network Projector and Remote Desktop (allows users to control a networked computer via the projector's USB port). It also includes Crestron RoomView Connected.
Other features include:
- Six optional bayonet-style lenses;
- Keystone correction ±35 degrees horizontal, ±30 degrees vertical;
- Power zoom and power focus, with powered lens shift up to 50 percent vertical and 10 percent horizontal;
- Closed captioning support;
- Edge blending geometry correction;
- Stacking correction;
- Wall color correction;
- Virtual remote;
- 2,500-hour lamp life in economy mode (approximately 80 percent the brightness of normal mode); and
- Carbon savings meter.
AV inputs on the PX750U include HDMI, 5BNC, DisplayPort, dual RGB (mini D-sub 15-pin), S-video, and composite video. It also offers RGB monitor out (mini D-sub 15-pin). Networking and control ports include LAN (RJ-45), DDC/CI, USB, RS-232, infrared, and optional WiFi.
The NEC VX750U is expected to ship in mid-August for $14,999 without lens. Education customers receive an additional year on the warranty, and registered Star Student users receive two additional years. Further details can be found on NEC's Star Student site.
