NEC Display Solutions Expands Multimedia Projector Lineup to Include VE Series

Budget-Friendly, Lightweight Projectors with Essential Features

CHICAGO--NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today its VE281 and VE281X mobile projectors, designed for small-to-medium-sized businesses, education environments, corporate conference rooms and mobility applications where heavy ambient light is present but the space requires a small projector.

These 2800-lumen lightweight models are affordable with essential features, including 3D Ready technology, high-contrast images and a powerful 7W speaker. The automated technologies, including Auto Power On and quick startup/shutdown, make VE Series projectors an eco-friendly choice. ECO Mode™ technology, a carbon savings meter, extended filter life, and energy-saving features also are key elements. Intelligent Driving Scheme (IDS2) technology has been adopted to extend the lamp life of the projector up to 6000 hours in ECO Mode and 4000 hours in normal use.

"NEC's new VE Series brings a new mobile family to our multimedia projector lineup with the intention of providing high brightness to small areas with heavy ambient lighting," said Rich McPherson, Senior Product Manager for Projectors at NEC Display Solutions. "Its automated technologies and lightweight design make it ideal for mobility applications where the projector is frequently moved between locations."
