NEC drops projector and plasma display prices
NEC Solutions, Inc. has made high-performance large-screen display technology more affordable with a $1,500US manufacturer’s suggested retail price drop on its PlasmaSync 42VP4 and 42VP4D plasma display models and a $6,000US MSRP reduction on its 84” plasma solution, the PlasmaSync 84VP4. NEC is also making its projection technology a greater value with a $2,000US MSRP decrease for its MT860 installation projector and a $500US MSRP drop for the ShowCase Series HT1000 projector, which recently won a Recognizing Audio Visual Excellence Award from Home Theater Magazine as Best HD-Capable Projector.
“Projection and plasma display technologies are powerful tools that enhance communication and learning and streamline business practices,” said Ron Gillies, senior vice president for NEC Solutions America, Visual Systems Division. “With these new price points, NEC reconfirms its leadership position in making the advantages of high-performance display technology affordable to a wider range of users.”
NEC’s PlasmaSync 42VP4 and 42VP4D offer users bright, vibrant images, a sleek new design and built-in stereo audio as well as the choice between an anti-reflective screen (the 42VP4) or an anti-glare screen for high ambient lighting conditions (the 42VP4D). The displays also feature wide VGA resolution, a built-in programmable timer that lets the displays virtually operate themselves, 3x3 matrixing capabilities, and the most comprehensive phosphor protection system available today. The PlasmaSync 84VP4 is a bundled 84” plasma display solution consisting of 4 matrixed 42VP4 displays plus an included wall mount.
With 2800 ANSI lumens of brightness and extensive input options, the SVGA resolution MT860 gives users a very bright yet low-cost installation projector with optional wired or wireless networking and a suite of security features to prevent theft.
Already acclaimed for its superior price performance, the HT1000 now offers even greater affordability. End users buying the product through September 30, 2003 can also take advantage of either a $500 rebate or a free anamorphic lens that enables display of 16 x 9 content using the projector’s full XGA panel resolution.
