NEC launches flagship cinema projector19 April 2017
NEC Display Solutions Europe has launched its new flagship cinema projector with IPG Photonics’ fibre laser light source and 35,000 lumens brightness.
The NC3540LS is a 4K RGB laser projector with a wide colour space (Rec 2020) for cinemas with large screens up to 32 metres in width. Cinema operators will benefit from new levels of image quality, reliability and service-free operation. With the extended lifetime, along with no lamp replacement requirement, the NC3540LS aims to deliver long-lasting and future-proof operation.
Gerd Kaiser, senior product line manager large venue projectors at NEC Display Solutions Europe, commented: “The most essential element in the cinema business model is creating an outstanding visual experience for the cinemagoers while maximising a projector’s chargeable operation and minimising downtime. Thanks to the speckle-free RGB laser light as well as the 4K resolution, the NC3540LS cinema projector provides the best visual and immersive cinematic experiences, giving cinemagoers detail-rich and vibrant images even for 3D movies. Additionally, the laser light source technology ensures the NC3540LS cinema projector is robust against failure. It offers reduced downtime, high reliability, maintenance free operation and resulting in significantly lower maintenance efforts.”
In addition to these benefits, the NC3540LS offers the utmost flexibility for tailor made solutions. The projector head is connected via fibre cable to the light source system, giving cinemas the flexibility to install their projector head independently while benefitting from reduced fan noise. Furthermore, the very high brightness level is scalable from 30 to 100%, as well as supporting stacking options to double the brightness output. This makes the projector ideal when securing bright images for 2D, 3D movies or different screen sizes.
The projector also comes with a wide range of connectivity options. These allow cinemas to also use the projector for non-cinematic activities such as company presentations or gaming events. It can be used for larger and special cinema screens, as well as theme parks, rental and staging, virtual reality and industrial design.
