In anticipation of the release of the Disney Pixar film Up, NEC has unveiled its new NC2500S-A digital cinema projector. The Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City will be among the first of NEC's customers to employ one of these new projectors, according to the company.
The NEC NEC2500S-A allows 3D content to use the full 2K resolution of the 1.2-inch DMD from Texas Instruments, using triple-flash technology for smooth motion. With an increase in resolution and brightness of up to 33 percent, compared to previous generations of the projector, the boost in performance should mean an improved viewing experience, say NEC officials.
"We are pleased that Clearview's legendary Ziegfeld Theatre will be one of the first theatres to install NEC's new digital cinema projectors," said Doug Oines, senior vice president and general manager for Clearview Cinemas, in a prepared statement.
According to NEC, Current NEC DLP cinema projector customers will be able to make this upgrade and in the field. NEC is offering this service to customers through both NEC factory engineers or through factory training provided to the exhibitor and independent service engineers, allowing for a flexible transition to the new NEC NC2500S-A projector.
The NEC NC2500S-A projector is available immediately for upgrade or purchase.
