CHICAGO, June 20, 2007–NEC Display Solutions of America, Inc., a leading provider of innovative projectors, LCD flat panel displays, professional grade plasmas,and integrated display solutions, today introduced the NEC NP1150, NP2150 and NP3150 projectors at InfoComm 2007 (NEC Display Booth No. 4609), taking place on June 19-21, 2007, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif.

These professional integration projectors, targeted to large corporations, higher education and government applications, are the first commercially available projectors which enable users to utilize the "Connect to a Network Projector" wizard in Windows VistaT.

Network Projector function within Windows VistaT connects directly to networked projectors without the need for additional proprietary software. Remote Desktop Connection allows the NEC projector to connect to a networked computer remotely. Controlling a networked computer is as simple as connecting a USB mouse and keyboard directly to the projector´s USB input. Each of these capabilities is enabled by the Windows Embedded CE 6.0 operating system installed on the projector.

"We´re very excited to see NEC taking advantage of the built-in network projection capabilities of Windows Vista," said Mike Nash, Corporate Vice President, Windows Product Management at Microsoft.

"Hardware and software compatibility are a competitive necessity for organizations today," said Rich McPherson, Product Manager, NEC Display Solutions. "By being the first company to bring the benefits of Windows Vista compatibility to boardroom and classroom projectors, NEC is making it easy for both users and technology to connect and communicate."

Silicon Optix HQVT technology is a high-performance, video processing/scaling system designed for computer signals as well as 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 creates life-like images in applications such as video conferencing.

The NP1150, NP2150 and NP3150 range in brightness from 3,500, 4,000 and 5,000 lumens, respectively, providing images that can be easily viewed in rooms with high-ambient lighting conditions. The vertical and horizontal lens shift allow for flexible projector placement, and the complete line of optional bayonet style lenses enable quick and easy lens changes. NEC´s Eco-ModeT technology increases lamp life up to 3,000 hours and provides quiet projector operation at 33dB.

Availability, Pricing, and Warranty

The NEC NP1150, NP2150 and NP3150 projectors will begin shipping late 2007. The projectors come standard with a three-year limited warranty, including the first year with InstaCareT (repair and return in three business days or next business day exchange). For more information, go to
