At 3000 lumens and 2000 lumens, respectively, the bright NP905 and NP901W projectors include Windows Network Projector functionality within Windows Vista™, enabling users to share information from their laptops or desktops via a wired or wireless network without the need for proprietary software. Remote desktop connection enables these projectors to connect to a networked computer remotely, allowing complete control of the remote computer with the connection of a USB mouse and keyboard directly to the projector’s USB input. Remote diagnostics enable the administrator to monitor and make adjustments to the projector remotely via a network.
Other advanced features included with the NP905 and NP901W are the geometric correction tool, which allows users to project on spheres, cylinders and more without distortion, as well as advanced color management, which automatically adjusts for the specific input type, whether it is a presentation, movie or graphics. Their comprehensive input panels include HDMI for high-definition video content, as well as an audio input for every allotted video input. Additionally, the NP905 and NP901W include closed captioning capability for the hearing impaired and a direct power off feature, which provides instantaneous shutdown of the projector, ideal for those users who are constantly on-the-go.
The NP905 and NP901W feature Silicon Optix HQV™ (Hollywood Quality Video), providing unparalleled scaling of computer signals and high-performance video processing for standard or high-definition video. The technology produces superior video processing using pixel-based, motion-adaptive de-interlacing to remove undesirable motion artifacts typical of interlaced signals. This processing brings home-theater-quality images to meeting rooms and classrooms.
“The NP905 and NP901W are powerhouse projectors that provide high-definition and essential networking capabilities,” said Rich McPherson, Product Manager at NEC Display Solutions. “They offer best-in-class image quality and a full list of features that customers have come to expect from NEC, while still remaining affordable.”
“NEC has really accomplished something extraordinary here,” commented Jim Mannos, President and CEO of Silicon Optix. “The NP905 and NP901W projectors are two of the few products to take full advantage of the HQV scaling and warping technology to provide crystal-clear images regardless of the projection angle or shape of the screen.”
The NP905 and NP901W projectors come with a standard two-year limited parts and labor warranty, including the first year of InstaCareSM, which provides the original owner one year of either next business day exchange or 3-business day repair/return. Registered education users qualify for a three-year limited parts and labor warranty. The NP905 and NP901W include a one-year or 500-hour lamp warranty and will be available for July 2008 shipment at an estimated street price of $1,999.99 and $1,299.99, respectively.
