NEC Display’s New VE Series Portable Projectors Ideal for Mid-Sized Meeting Rooms, Classrooms with Heavy Ambient Lighting

NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, today announced budget-friendly 3,000-lumen SVGA and XGA portable projectors for corporate, government and education users who require easy setup, flexibility and an attractive total cost of ownership.

The VE303 (800 x 600 resolution) and VE303X (1024 x 768 resolution) projectors come with quick power-on and image displays, vertical keystone correction, and zoom lenses. The models automatically sense incoming signals and accurately display such information. And they can be connected to command-and-control systems, while 3D sources can be viewed using DLP-Link glasses.

“These high-performance 5.8-lbs. projectors ease setup for professionals on the move,” said Bob Guentner, Senior Product Manager of Projectors at NEC Display. “The units’ 3,000 lumens of brightness overcome rooms with a lot of ambient light, and their long lamp life and lower power consumption in standby modes contribute to an affordable TCO.”

Advanced AccuBlend™ also ensures detailed images when non-native resolution sources are connected to the projectors.

Other benefits of each VE Series projector include:

  • Bright, high-contrast images from the latest Texas Instruments DLP® engine
  • 10,000:1 contrast ratio
  • Up to 6,000 hours of lamp life
  • Acceptance of incoming resolutions up to 1920 x 1080
  • One button source change and menu access through remote
  • Digital and analog video inputs, including HDMI with HDCP, USB, VGA, RS232, Audio in, and Composite Video
  • Support for 3D formats, including HDMI 3D, HQFS 3D and 120 Hz 3D (provided accompanying PC can output 120 Hz)
  • 2W built-in speaker and low fan noise
  • Optional DLP-Link glasses (NP02GL)

The VE303 and VE303X projectors will be available in April at an estimated street price of $339 and $419, respectively. Each projector ships with a 2 year limited parts and labor warranty. The lamp is covered for one year or 500 hours, whichever comes first.
