ShowEast 2012

CHICAGO--NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today updates to its NC900C digital cinema projection solution for smaller screens in theaters, art houses, mobile cinemas, universities and public buildings.

"NEC is committed to helping large- and small-screen theaters alike convert to digital cinema technology"
.As part of NEC's Digital Cinema Projector Series, the NC900C projector delivers 2K DCI-compliant cinema quality, which translates to an image brightness of 14-ft-L (using a 1.8 gain screen) on screens up to 30ft/9m, while adhering to DCI color specifications. A new S2K chip set from Texas Instruments® makes the NC900C the most compact 2K DCI-certified digital cinema projector on the market.

The NEC Integrated Media Server (IMS) offers a trouble-free, one-stop solution for exhibitors and other organizations, while the projector's High Frame Rate (HFR) capability offers excellent picture quality. Its all-in-one Integrated Media Block (IMB) and 2 TB RAID5 Storage Server offer versatile connectivity and savings with fewer peripheral devices needed.

"NEC is committed to helping large- and small-screen theaters alike convert to digital cinema technology," said Jim Reisteter, General Manager of Digital Cinema at NEC Display Solutions. "Our NC900C projector gives venues with smaller screens, particularly those in Latin America, the ability to delight their patrons with pristine images and a meaningful theater experience. The NC900C is easy to install, even in smaller projection booths, and easy to transport for mobile cinema."
