ME: NEC Marks Milestone for Laser Projection in Digital Cinema Industry

NEC Display Solutions Europe celebrated a milestone for digital cinema laser projectors, having sold more than 1,000 laser systems worldwide. This achievement marks the evolution of NEC’s laser projector offerings since the launch of its world’s first DCI certified RGB laser projector and DCI certified laser phosphor projector in 2014.

NEC’s cinema-wide portfolio points to the leadership position it has earned in the digital cinema industry; designing solutions that respond to market demands, effectively meeting cinema’s business challenges whilst also enabling them to remain at the cutting edge of cinema screen projection technology.

NEC showcased its developed range of digital cinema laser projectors at CineEurope 2016, in Barcelona, Spain, suite C. The second generation line-up will include:

  • The new NC3540LS cinema projector with IPG Photonics’ fibre laser light source, a 4K RGB laser projector with a bright and wide colour space (Rec 2020) for large theatre screens. The NC3540LS projector offers a visual experience that enables cinemas to remain at the cutting edge of cinema projection technology whilst enhancing cinema experience for their customers.
  • The NC1201L, an ideal solution for boothless cinema scenarios due to its compact, low noise design, flexibility, and powerful integrated media server. The NC1201L features NEC’s unique sealing technology: a sealed optical engine and laser engine with circulating air cooling, which reduces maintenance requirements.

Mark Kendall, Cinema Business Development EMEA at NEC Display Solutions Europe, comments: “This is NEC’s 12th year attending CineEurope, where we are celebrating our leadership position in the digital cinema industry. We look forward to expanding what is already the widest range of laser phosphor projectors on the market today, and continuing to offer our customers technology that enables lower operating costs and a long-term competitive advantage.”

In January 2016, NEC celebrated a cinema projector milestone with 10,000 digital cinema projector units sold in Europe.
