What is Laser
NEC is in the unique position of offering a new portfolio of Laser projectors. Solid State Light Sources (SSL) are light producing systems made up of either LED devices or Laser Diodes. Light produced with Laser systems inherently have a longer and steadier brightness that decreases at a much slower pace over time than lamp based systems. This technology offers the highest image quality while its operating life span far exceeds traditional lighting methods.
What to expect from a Laser Projector:
- Lower maintenance costs
- Consistent light ouput
- Longer life
- Constant color rendition
- Up to and including 24×7 operation
- Lower brightness decline during life time
- Better brightness uniformity
- Higher reliability
- Higher contrast
- Wider color gamut
- Lower energy consumption and lower thermal emission
- Instant on/off capability, flexible brightness adjustment (20-100%)
- Mercury free
Laser offers new Benefits
There are numerous benefits to these solid state light source projectors, but the bottom line is that they address the needs of the market and will be adopted in growing numbers.
Their qualitative brightness superiority and potential for energy savings combined with the significant reduction of maintenance cost makes it likely that they eventually replace lamp-based projection systems as the primary projection light source in the future (69% of installation market expected in 2019 according to Futuresource).
Main Solid State Light Source Technologies
The three most important technologies, LED, laser phosphor and RGB laser, are described below.
Optical Architecture of LED Light Source
This was the first solid state projector type to be commercialized about 7 to 8 years ago but it is limited in the light output and mainly used in specialty markets.
LED systems include only red, green and blue LEDs to produce images that adhere to the SMPTE color space.
Optical Architecture of Laser Phosphor Light Source
Laser-illuminated projectors use arrays of laser sources illuminating a microdisplay engine. In the most common Laser Phosphor approach, a blue laser is used for creating the blue color in the final image, but the blue laser is also used to illuminate a yellow phosphor wheel, which emits yellow light. This yellow light is then split by a prism or color wheel into green and red light.Maximum color space is limited to the SMPTE standard.
Optical Architecture of RGB Laser Light Source
RGB laser on the other hand, uses the so-called ‘pure laser’ technology. Here red, green and blue lasers deliver the light directly. The product of this technique is an absolutely pure colored light that is split into the three channels. The light is emitted in a very narrow band in discrete frequencies. This makes it possible to realize a color space that reaches BT2020 therefore exceeding even that of AdobeRGB.
NEC laser projectors: The best solution for your installation
Install & forget – when there are so many other demands on your time, what a relief it would be if once you had installed your new projector you wouldn’t even need to think about maintenance for the next 20,000 hours? And what if there were many more advantages for your business? We can summarise these advantages into reasons why the new NEC laser projector are the best solution for your large venue installation.
Your trusted companion for big stage presentation
The NEC PX803UL laser phosphor projector designed for 24/7 use combines unwavering colour performance based on Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology and native WUXGA resolution projection with a long-lasting vibrant image without loss of brightness. The installation projector is ideally suited for large venue installations where maintenance-free operation and intensive use are crucial. Your ideal partner for applications in higher education, museums and large corporate environments, as well as rental and staging use.
Easy wireless presenting with the NEC P502HL laser projector
Did you know that the NEC P502HL laser projector has “wireless presenting” functionality already on board? Frustration caused by connectivity or networking issues and a jumble of cable in meeting rooms are all too common, sapping valuable time and resources. NEC’s P502HL laser projector with already integrated NEC MultiPresenter wireless presenting functionality provides the missing link to achieve a seamless collaborative environment for instant access to shared content and wireless presentation.
Having NEC’s MultiPresenter functionality already on board, the NEC P502HL laser projector saves your time and money during installation. Just insert the NEC NP05LM Wireless LAN Module and enjoy wireless presenting with your laptop, tablet or smartphone running the free downloadable NEC MultiPresenter app supporting Win, MAC, Android and iOS operating systems.
In addition, the NEC P502HL laser projector will enlighten your audience by delivering crisp image quality, even in challenging lighting conditions. Thanks to 5,000 ANSI lumen Laser Light Source for up to 20,000 hours maintenance free operation, the NEC P502HL is highly reliability and serves you a low cost of ownership.
The future is here: Filter-free LCD laser installation projectors
At the industry‘s leading trade show, ISE in Amsterdam, NEC proved that it is possible to combine a laser light source with LCD technology in a completely filter-free design. It‘s a major step forward for LCD-based projection, the completely sealed optical engine means air filters are not required and filter changes and filter cleaning is obsolete. This news is highly appreciated by establishments with fixed installations since the projector‘s location is rarely easily accessible for maintenance.
The advantages for Rental & Staging partners are also evident; by avoiding manual cleaning efforts after the return of rental projectors, the time needed for maintenance is drastically reduced resulting in better earnings per rental.
Virtually maintenance-free operation for laser based LCD projectors is available for two WUXGA projectors which deliver precise colour processing combined with high brightness levels of 6,500 (PA653UL ) and 8,000 ANSI lumens (PA803UL), creating natural images for compelling presentations and large screen projections in museums, retail stores, events and simulation.
