NEC Unveils First Automatic Projectors

In a major development for the projector business, NEC is launching two automatic projectors, the LT30 and LT35. Both NEC digital projectors are smaller than an 81/2-inch x 11-inch sheet of paper and weigh less than five pounds, but boast a brightness of a much larger projector. Virtually everything on these projectors is automatic, including start-up, focus, keystone correction, AutoSense and even cool down. These technological innovations are all included on the NEC LT30/35 to make presenting easier for the user and to protect the life of the lamp.

The NEC LT30 and LT35 DLP projectors feature a full set of automatic innovations which help to alleviate public speaking worry in the presenter's mind. First, the automatic focus instantly provides a sharp image without the touch of a button via a distance sensor located in the front of the projector. Also, if the projector is set up at a steep offset angle to the screen, the automatic keystone correction instantly recognizes this and corrects the angle to project a perfectly square image. The LT30/35 also features automatic start-up and shut down enabling the projector to be turned on and off from a wall light-switch or power strip. The projectors also feature direct power off which is a unique lamp saver technology that protects the lamp in the event of power interruption. Built-in sensors protect the lamp and projector from overheating, increasing the lamp life. Finally, NEC's AutoSense technology intuitively syncs the projector with computer signals and features one-touch image optimization which provides better clarity and greater detail of high resolution images.

At only 4.4 pounds, these projectors are portable enough to be moved from room to room or to drop into a carry-on bag for the plane. Even at this small size, the LT30 and LT35 boast an unprecedented brightness at 2,600 lumens and 3,000 lumens, respectively. Also, built-in wall color correction allows you to properly display an image even on non-white surfaces. These high resolution, XGA 1024x768 native resolution projectors feature advanced video processing including 3-2/2-2 pull down which provides error free interpolation for moving video resulting in a smooth image with greater clarity and detail.
