Digital Projection projectors now feature a three-year warranty. Along with the new warranty, Digital Projection has introduced some new projectors that are a great fit for corporations looking for high-quality images. First, the very successful E-Vision 600 series projector is now ready to ship in white as well as the traditional black finish. DP’s new HIGHlite Cine 330 projector is a single-lamp 4,500-lumen 3-chip DLP projector at a native 1920x1080 resolution. The HIGHlite Cine 330 features dual HDMI inputs, as well as the traditional RGB, component, composite, and S-Video. It offers both horizontal and vertical lens shift for flexible location, and it is available with lens options from .77:1 to 6.76:1. It is housed in a compact and lightweight chassis, and is ideal for corporate boardrooms requiring bright, high-quality imaging.
Epson’s has two new PowerLite Series projectors. The PowerLite 1880 offers 4,000 lumens of light output in an XGA native resolution. It features Epson’s Easy-Slide horizontal keystone adjustment, USB plug and play, and PC-free slideshows. The PowerLite 1880 includes standard analog connectivity, as well as an HDMI connection. It also offers wired LAN connectivity and the ability to send content over IP. Epson’s PowerLite 1850W bares similiar features as the 1880 but provides 3,700 lumens of light output in a WXGA native resolution.
LG’s newest entry into the short-throw projection market is ideal for many corporate conference rooms. The BW286 DLP projector features a 2,800-lumen brightness and a 2500:1 contrast ratio. It provides composite, S-Video, dual RGB, and an HDMI input. It also features audio input and output. The BW286 contains a fixed lens, which provides a 134in. diagonal image from a throw distance of only about 5ft. It is ideal for use with interactive white boards or other situations requiring an extremely short throw distance.
Mitsubishi recently launched two new EST (extreme short throw) projectors—the WD380U-EST and the XD360U-EST. Both projectors use a high-quality short-throw lens instead of mirrors. This offers improved image quality and helps to extend the life of the projectors by keeping the interior cleaner. Both projectors feature USB A and B inputs and offer computer-free presentations. They also feature standard analog inputs as well as HDMI digital inputs. The input connectivity includes audio, which is reproduced through a 10W speaker system. The speaker system will even allow audio to be passed when the projector is in standby mode, eliminating the need for external speakers and an amplifier. The XD360U-EST is rated for 2,500 lumens brightness in an XGA resolution and 3000:1 contrast ratio. The WD380U-EST is rated for 2,800 lumens and also features a 3000:1 contrast ratio.
NEC has released two new projectors that lend themselves well to the corporate market. The new NP-V300W projector is WXGA 1280x800 native resolution and provides a 3,000-lumen light output in a small and portable chassis. The V300W features enhanced connectivity including dual computer inputs, HDMI, composite, and S-Video. It also features an automatic power on, activated by connect- ing a source to the RGB input. The V300W is wellsuited for smaller conference rooms and portable use. The new NP-PX750U projector is designed for large spaces where high brightness is required. It is a WUXGA 1920x1200 resolution native projector and boasts a 7,500-lumen brightness output. It offers video, S-Video, 5-BNC, and dual VGA inputs as well as HDMI and DisplayPort digital connections. It also features enhanced network connectivity including Windows Network Projector display and access to a Windows Shared folder using the Viewer function. An optional HD/SD SDI input card is also available for use in the open pluggable specification slot. The NP-PX750U offers stacking capabilities with the ability to boost brightness up to 30,000 lumens for extremely bright environments or large-screen applications. Lenses are available in .76:1 all the way to 8.26:1 to allow the projector to be mounted at virtually any distance.
