NEC Launches Native 4K UHD Laser Projector at ISE 2018

NEC Display Solutions Europe today debuted a 4K new projector as part of it’s PX Series, the NEC PX1005QL, at ISE 2018 in Amsterdam.
The new laser projector is based on the latest NEC scaler chip that they are marketing as having a “pixel free” image. The projector heritage comes from NEC’s work as one of the three companies supplying the digital cinema world with projectors via the DCI. This projector is aimed at high-pixel-density installs like large digital canvas installs in meeting spaces, boardrooms, and from conferences and education establishments as well as unique bendable-light digital signage applications in retail or leisure areas.
The new projector inputs include Quad 3G SDI, two DisplayPort and HDMI (2.1) inputs each, plus an optional slot for 4K/UHD Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) Slot-in PCs. And the PX1005QL projector is spec’d at 20,000 hours of laser life time as well as the ability to install in a 360-degree installation, unique geometric adjustment, Picture-in-Picture capability, and 3D support applications. The projector incorporates a wide zoom bayonet lens portfolio as well as support for third party lenses.
The new NEC PX1005QL estimated availability will be in June 2018. Here are more detailed specs.
