A little Hollywood in NEC's lineup
As part of its early preview of fall products, the company is featuring five commercial and four home plasma displays, as well as six new projectors, that build on its current VT, LT and WT series. The devices were on display at the InfoComm 2005 audio/video communications conference in Chicago.
For users looking for the highest video quality possible, NEC said it will soon be offering its NEC TheaterSync video processing technology. Silicon Optix helped NEC develop the technology, which is based on Hollywood-quality video processing, or HQV, for high-definition televisions.
Likewise, the projectors have advanced visual technologies and incorporate longer lamp life and higher contrast capabilities. NEC's most affordable projector starts at $795 and ramps up in price to $5,995 for a projector that can connect through an 802.11g wireless network.
