NEC Display Solutions of America, the No. 1 global digital cinema laser projector provider, announced the availability of the NC1700L in its Digital Cinema Projector Series, a dual-laser digital cinema projector featuring richer colors, brighter images, and reduced cost of ownership.
Designed for 2D and 3D playback on small to medium screen sizes, the NC1700L projector delivers 14,000 lumens of brightness with richer colours – thanks to its industry-first RB laser system. The new laser system features red and blue lasers paired with green phosphor to produce a rich colour spectrum with unsurpassed brightness for the ultimate cinema experience. Cinema operators also benefit from a reduced total cost of ownership and less maintenance because the RB laser design eliminates the need to replace a lamp, which also extends the projector’s lifetime.
“With the NC1700L, we’re bringing not just another laser option to cinema operators, but also a whole new laser design that offers flexibility for small and medium screen sizes with a brighter, richer set of colors,” said Richard McPherson, Senior Product Manager for Projectors at NEC Display Solutions. “By offering this new dual laser system, cinema owners will not only receive the desired brightness, colors and uniformity they’ve come to know with NEC digital cinema projectors but also peace of mind for the customer experience.”
The new laser design offers flexibility in other ways, too. The projector does not require a special exhaust system, and it uses a much wider lens shift ratio without sacrificing image quality. Furthermore, its connectivity options enable non-cinematic content, such as presentations and games, giving cinema operators more events with which to grow revenue.
The NC1700L represents the next evolution in laser projection for small to medium sized screens and is the latest addition to the Digital Cinema Projector Series, which also includes the single-laser phosphor NC1201L projector.
The NC1700L is available for purchase now. Also available now is the NC1000C, a compact and silent 2K, DCI-certified digital projector equipped with a S2K chipset from Texas Instruments, designed for theatres with small screens, booth-less cinema, or mobile theatres.
