NEC launches the world’s brightest RB laser projectors for large venues

Latest PH Series flagship combines “superior image quality” to create “stunning ” cinema quality picture quality with a low cost of ownership

NEC Display Solutions has today (Feb 2) launched what it claims to be the world’s brightest red-blue (RB) laser projectors, designed to bring cinema quality imagery to the largest venues.

The new PH Series comprises two models, NEC PH3501QL and NEC PH2601QL, which bring “unrivalled picture quality”, including super-bright projection, real 4K resolution and wide colour space for “stunning presentations.”

NEC said The PH Series has been designed to meet the demand of major venues that seek premium, cinema-quality projection at an affordable lifetime cost. The new projectors use the latest advances in RB laser light source technology to bring new brightness levels and high resolution, combined with low operational costs for a range of applications and venues.

We have harnessed our expertise to bring cinema quality picture to the mainstream, and make it the standard for every venue

The PH3501QL delivers 40,000 center lumens, while the PH2601QL features 30,000 center lumens, and offer the standard 20,000 hour lifetime of usage.

NEC said the models harnesses the best of both laser phosphor and RGB laser technologies resulting in a powerful projector which delivers compelling benefits in terms of cost, operational efficiency and immersive image quality. The use of a red and blue laser light source goes beyond the colour and brightness output of traditional laser phosphor projection systems providing a brilliant image with high uniformity.

This efficient light processing system, it says, delivers huge savings in operational costs compared to lamp-based projection systems thanks to lower power consumption, maintenance-free operation, and no need for lamp and filter replacements over the laser’s 20,000 hour lifetime.

“Presentations to very large audiences require a huge visual canvas on which to deliver an eye-pleasing and easy-to-read visual experience – often ten metres or even more,” said Gerd Kaiser, senior product line manager, large venue projectors at NEC Display Solutions Europe.

. Our new PH Series projectors respond to these needs with true 4K imagery and up to 40,000 center lumens brightness for perfect viewing experiences even in demanding light conditions. We have harnessed our expertise to bring cinema quality picture to the mainstream, and make it the standard for every venue, application or occasion. The wide colour space can even be calibrated for reliable colour reproduction, making it perfectly suited for colour critical workflows, or common presentation formats such as video streams.”

“NEC has a long heritage in a huge range of display technologies, including cinema and large scale projection, and our new projector family has been designed to meet the needs of a market that is demanding large scale and reliable visual display solutions,”

NEC Display Solutions Europe will be debuting the innovative PH Series projectors at ISE 2018 in Amsterdam now in February. To arrange a briefing and demonstration, please contact the press office.

NEC said, based on market forecasts, the large venue projection market is forecasted to grow by more than 50 per cent annually until 2020. This is driven by demand from multi-purpose sports and events halls, theatres, museum, leisure parks and every other type of large venue.

The NEC PH3501QL and NEC PH2601QL models will be available in March-April 2018.
