NEC REVOLUTIONIZES PROJECTION TECHNOLOGY WITH NEW PROJECTOR FEATURING WORLD’S SHORTEST THROW DISTANCE

  • 24 July, 2003 14:14

<p>SYDNEY – July 24, 2003: NEC Australia today announced the introduction of the WT600, which utilises NEC’s patented lensless mirror design to attain the shortest throw distance of any front projector to date. The new projector can project a 40” image at only 6cm from the screen and a 100” image at only 65cm from the screen. In addition, the WT600 is the only projector available to feature a 3500:1 contrast ratio for incredible image quality with deep black detail.</p>
<p>“The WT600’s short throw distance expands the possibilities of projection technology by giving users the ability to move freely around the room without worrying about obstructing the image,” said Geoff Cottee, National Sales Manager for NEC’s Visual Displays division. “It enables projection in cramped spaces that couldn’t previously accommodate a front projector, and results in significant space savings for rear screen applications versus traditional projectors. The WT600 also gives home users the ultimate in convenience since the projector can easily be integrated onto an existing component rack or TV stand.”</p>
<p>Instead of a traditional optical system using a lens, the WT600 features a series of aspheric mirrors developed and produced using NEC’s exclusive super-high accuracy plastic mirror technology. It also incorporates NEC’s ImageExpress™ wired and wireless networking technologies for the ability to communicate from a PC to the projector through a wired LAN system using a 10 base or a wireless system via Wi-Fi 802.11b. And the wireless option lets users place their laptop anywhere in the room and switch between presentations on multiple laptops with the touch of a button for added versatility. In addition to NEC ImageExpress, the new WT600’s networking capabilities allow users to perform online diagnostics by accessing the menu system for complete control of the projector from a remote location.</p>
<p>The DLP-based, 1500 ANSI lumen WT600 boasts XGA resolution and Advanced AccuBlend technology for excellent display of non-native sources up to UXGA. NEC’s Eco-Mode™ technology enables increased lamp life of up to 3000 hours along with a barely audible noise level of only 32dB, and the energy-saving standby mode reduces power usage to under 1W when not in active use. NEC’s AutoSense™ technology allows for easy one-touch setup and operation.</p>
<p>The 5.9kg WT600 additionally incorporates NEC’s groundbreaking suite of security measures to deter theft. These include the ability to format a PCMCIA card as a security card to disable the projector to unauthorized users, password protection, a panel control lock, and a lock slot for the most comprehensive security feature set available today.</p>
<p>Pricing, Service and Availability
The WT600 is available in late August 2003 through authorised NEC projector resellers. It carries a recommended retail price of $11,500 (inc GST).</p>

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
