NEC has chosen the CinemaCon of Las Vegas to launch the new cinema projector: the modular laser light system sets new standards of flexibility by offering interesting financing options.
NEC Display Solutions presented NC2402ML, a new interesting cinema projector that uses a modular approach: cinemas can connect the appropriate light module based on the required brightness. This functionality is essential to adapt the projectors to the size of the screen and makes sure that every projector can be used even in larger environments. The new concept of modular light represents the perfect choice for those realities that require flexibility with regards to the use of optimal brightness.
NC2402ML provides in the package the NEC NP-02HD projection body together with the interchangeable light source module with three different options: 24.000, 20.000 and 18.000 lumens. This modular all-in-one solution makes it easier and faster to get the desired light power for different types of screens and situations. A further opportunity to contain costs for cinemas is that the new NC2402ML can be used with the standard lens of the NEC NC1200 projector.
The other most interesting features of the NC2402ML model range from maintenance at virtually no cost, thanks to the absence of a lamp and filters, to the 30.000 hours of operation, a direct consequence of the laser light source. Furthermore, the sealed optical motor significantly reduces the entry of dust and smoke and avoids a series of maintenance operations, which are mandatory on other projector models. Finally, a package of integrated features (optional built-in 2TB screen server, 2 x 3G SDI interface, HDMI interface for alternative content, advanced network and built-in GPIO functions with NAS support) completes the product overview.
The new projector made its debut this year at the CinemaCon in Las Vegas, and will be available with a 24.000 lumen brightness module starting in August 2019. The 20.000 lumen and 18.000 lumen light modules will be introduced to follow. “The projector” – explains Enrico Sgarabottolo, TIGI Sales Director of NEC Display Solutions Division – “can be used anywhere and easily adapted to different screen sizes, types of brightness and applications. This means that cinemas can expand their audiences outside the audience of films, being able to use it for company presentations, private events and so on. In addition, they can also take advantage of the financing options available by renting light engines and paying only for the light they use.”
