Commercial LCD display and projector solutions provider NEC Display Solutions of America has announced its X554UNV display, designed to be ideal for indoor video wall applications in control rooms, retail stores and transportation environments.

According to NEC, forward-looking organizations continue to deploy video walls for strategic business advantage. According to market research firm DisplaySearch, the global large-screen display market is expected to grow 27 percent this year to more than 3 million units shipped, and video walls are contributing to that expansion, the company said in the announcement.

The new display launch is in response to those rising market expectations, NEC said. With an ultra-narrow bezel design of just 3.5mm between neighboring displays, commercial-grade brightness and ultra-HD TileMatrix support, the X554UNV delivers a 3840 x 2160 UHD resolution across an entire video wall. Its direct LED-backlighting also delivers improved brightness uniformity, reduced power consumption and mercury-free components, the company said.

NEC introduces new laser projectors for digital signage installs

NEC introduces new laser projectors for digital signage installs

Commercial LCD display and projector solutions provider NEC Display Solutions of America has announced two new laser phosphor projectors to its professional installation lineup. The technology behind the lampless projectors gives professional installers new applications to target and potential new revenue streams, the company said.

The NEC PH1201QL projector delivers a native 4K (4096×2160) resolution, while the NEC PH1202HL model delivers full-HD 1080p as its native resolution. The three-chip DLP laser projectors each emit 12,000 lumens of brightness, and maintain 2000:1 and 10,000:1 contrast ratios, respectively.

The lampless projectors use blue laser with yellow phosphor as their light sources and are designed to emit consistent light output over their lifetimes. That means mercury-free components, no more lamp replacements and 20,000 hours of projector life at maximum brightness, according to NEC. The eco-friendly projectors are designed to be virtually maintenance free, which should translate to lower labor costs and less filter cleaning, the company said.

The PH1201HL offers NEC’s heat exchanger, a patent-pending system designed to cool the engine while creating a sealed barrier for both the optical and laser engines, thereby minimizing dust and other particles from entering the laser and optical path. The barrier helps reduce maintenance requirements while maintaining image quality and brightness, the company said.

The projectors are intended to operate in a 24×7 environment, which should open up a range of new applications in digital signage, simulation, training facilities, control rooms and high-traffic environments, giving professional installers new opportunities, NEC said.

“Laser is the future light source for the projector industry,” said Richard McPherson, senior product manager of projectors at NEC Display. “Laser phosphor projectors bring the best possible brightness uniformity and image quality over a longer period of time compared to lamp-based projectors. The laser technology eliminates the need for lamp replacement, bringing a significant cost savings over time. It’s exciting to see the new opportunities NEC’s PH Series laser projectors bring to professional installations.”

The self-contained projection system of the PH1202HL projector includes an Open Pluggable Specification option slot, the standard designed to simplify installation, use and maintenance while offering input flexibility for HD/SD-SDI and OPS accessory cards. The projector’s wide range of installation features is intended to suit any professional environment and minimize installation costs for digital signage.

NEC Display says it is the only visual technologies manufacturer delivering 4K and ultra-HD resolution products across its entire portfolio of projectors, desktop and large-screen displays.

Among the other benefits of the two laser phosphor projectors:

  • quick-start capabilities;
  • extensive input panel, including HDMI, DisplayPort and HDBaseT (PH1202HL);
  • tilt-free (360°) and portrait-mode capabilities;
  • 3D – HDMI;
