Portable Desktop Projector – Award-Winning Value
NEC Solutions, Inc. today made its award-winning LT240 and LT260 portable desktop projectors an even greater value by enhancing their brightness and lamp life while maintaining the products’ existing price points. With the addition of new rebates on units purchased through September 30, 2003, NEC is making high-performance wireless projection technology more affordable than ever before. The enhanced models will be designated the LT240K and LT260K.
The LT240 was a PC World Best Buy in the magazine’s April 2003 issue. In the article “Bright Lights, Big Pictures,” PC World reported that “the top-rated LT240 displayed sharp, legible text; attractive color graphics; and smooth moving images from both computer and video sources,” and that it “can handle pretty much anything you throw at it, always delivering a brilliant picture.” The LT240 also received the ExtremeTech Approved designation.
The LT240K features an increased brightness of 2000 ANSI lumens (up from 1600), while the LT260K, identical in design to the LT240K except for a longer-throw lens, is now enhanced from 2100 up to 2400 ANSI lumens. Both models give multi-purpose users a powerfully bright image from a small 6.6-lb. ideal for portable and desktop applications and versatile enough for low-cost installations. The projectors feature an increased lamp life of up to 2000 hours in standard mode or up to 3000 hours in Eco-Mode for a decreased total cost of ownership over the life of the projector. They also incorporate a USB input for the first time to enable computer-free presentations from a USB storage device, extremely quiet operation at less than 29dB in Eco-Mode, and easy one-touch setup and operation.
Customers purchasing the new projectors through September 30, 2003 will also be eligible for a choice of end user rebates. With the LT240K, users can choose a $100US end user rebate or a free wireless upgrade that enables users to operate the projector wirelessly with a wireless laptop using the projector’s built-in NEC ImageExpress technology. LT260K users benefit from the choice of a $200US rebate, a free wireless upgrade or a free lamp (a $449US value).
NEC ImageExpress technology offers the ability to communicate continuously from a PC to the projector through wired LAN or wirelessly via Wi-Fi 802.11b. The wireless option lets users place their laptop anywhere in the room and switch between presentations on multiple laptops with the touch of a button. The LT240K and LT260K’s networking solutions also allow users to perform online diagnostics by accessing the menu system for complete control of the projector from a remote location.
