NEC Display Unveils 2 New Projectors for Education

NEC Display Solutions has launched two more projectors to its education portfolio, both with easy connections to HD data and video sources and the ability to connect with smartphones and tablets.

The V332X and V332W are 3,300-lumen projectors that offer horizontal and vertical keystone correction for more flexibility. They have longer lamp lives than previous models — up to 6,000 hours — and 10,000:1 contrast ratios. The new models offer "intuitive" remote control with one-touch source changes and menu control.

Other features include:

  • Quick Start function, making the projectors ready for use in seconds;
  • Advanced video processing, which leads to additional picture management control;
  • 8-watt speakers;
  • A filter-free design that aims to lower maintenance intervals; and
  • Capability to manage multiple projectors from a single point.

"The projectors also support 3D computing and 3D over HDMI, which enable the display of more immersive content by schools," said NEC Display Senior Product Manager Bob Guentner.

The V332X, with 1,024 x 768 resolution, will have an estimated cost of $579 and the V332W, with 1,280 x 800 resolution, will cost $649. Each model will come with a two-year limited parts and labor warranty.
