NEC Pushes blue LASER
NEC’s new PH1201QL, 4K Blue LASER-Phosphor 12000 lumens projector listing for €79000.-
NEC was showing a complete line up of commercial Hybrid LASER projectors at the ISE, besides the much talked about 12K lumens 4K 3 DMD DLP, the PH1201QL that will also be marketed to the Hometheater market by DPI. There was the HD version, the PH1202HL, to demonstrate pixelmapping or warping. A blended pair of XGA projectors, PX602UL, that is also available in 1200×800, the PX602WL, was shooting at the ceiling.
These 6000 lumens projectors have been available since December, and the widescreen version lists in the US for $9200,-
And there was the P502HL , a compact HD, 5K lumens, single chipper. That stood up nicely against the booth lighting.
All of the images were projected above people’s heads, so the projection path was not obstructed, but it also made it hard to judge the picture quality. Also the graphics style content instead of fast moving video was not representative of use as video displays.
NEC Europe is still looking for delivery in April, but at the show Director Product Management Projectors Klaus Auerböck, was careful to allow for the possibility of a slight delay into May.
List price for the PH1201QL is set at €79,000.-
