<p>SYDNEY – July 24, 2003. NEC Australia is giving projector users a new level of customisation and versatility with the introduction of its new GT5000 projectors, the latest model in NEC’s award-winning GT Series line of high-performance installation projectors.</p>
<p>“NEC’s new GT Series projectors give users the power to customise the perfect solution for virtually any installation application,” said Geoff Cottee, National Sales Manager for NEC’s Visual Display division. “With a dual lamp configuration for variable light output and lamp life, a full line of lenses, easy-to-manage integrated networking, and diverse input flexibility, the new projectors give users more versatility than any other installation projectors on the market today.”</p>
<p>With NEC’s ImageExpress™ networking technology, the new projectors are easy to manage over a wired network via the integrated RJ45 jack or wireless/wired PC Card network connectivity. Systems administrators can control and diagnose the projectors remotely from virtually anywhere, saving maintenance time and manpower. They can also set up and receive email error notifications and give real-time cable-free presentations.</p>
<p>The GT5000 contains several technologies to give users the ultimate customisation options. Their lens memory function controls lens attributes like zoom, focus and shift depending on input resolution and input selected for fast and easy source transitions. With powered horizontal and vertical mechanical lens shift, users can maintain image quality when projecting from off-centre screen installations, and when combined with NEC’s exclusive 3D Reform™ horizontal, vertical and diagonal keystone correction even greater installation flexibility is possible.</p>
<p>The products’ dual lamp design allow users to run one lamp at a time and achieve up to 3000 ANSI lumens of brightness, or both lamps for applications where up to 6000 ANSI lumens is needed. Users can also opt to run the lamps in Eco-Mode for an increased lamp life of up to 3000 hours per lamp. And users can select the XGA resolution GT5000 for applications where high resolution and fine detail are required and a 4:3 display is preferred.</p>
<p>The new GT Series projectors offer extreme flexibility in aspect ratio control. Users can even project 4:3 data on a 16:9 screen and fill the full 16:9 screen display with non-linear image management that maintains the normal look and feel of the information. Image quality is enhanced by NEC’s exclusive SweetVision™ technology for enhanced interlaced processing and display, and by Faroudja® DCDi™ technology for film-like reproduction and elimination of video artefacts. NEC also incorporates its own exclusive 3D 10-bit video decoder to further expand contrast and enhance colour and skin tone accuracy while reducing video noise.</p>
<p>The new GT5000 is fully upgradeable, with two card slots offering the ability to add input/output cards as needs develop. And NEC offers a variety of optional lenses as well as an extended-life lamp with a Super Eco-Mode that operates at a reduced brightness for up to 4500 hours of lamp life, giving users the ability to customize the projector for different applications as needs change.</p>
<p>Pricing, Service and Availability
The GT5000 is available through authorised NEC projector resellers. It carries a recommended retail price of $18,800 (inc GST) + lens.</p>
