NEC adds digital cinema projector with NSH dual-lamp system lamps to range

NEC Display Solutions Europe has launched the NC900C, a DCI-certified digital cinema projector, with dual-NSH lamp technology inside.
The NC900C was the first projector to incorporate the new S2K chipset from Texas Instruments and use NSH lamps.
It is suitable for use in small cinema screens, art houses and mobile and public cinemas.
The NC900C runs with a 350W NSH Dual-Lamp system, and the projector’s power consumption is less than 1000W, which translates into savings up to approximately €700 per year (at typ. 3,000h usage/year and 0.25 EURO/kWh) to some competitors models.
The choice of an NSH dual-lamp ensures one lamp still operates in case of any lamp problem, and the defective can be swapped out while projector is working.
Furthermore, as the Lamp mirror is safely included within the lamp module, it will not cause mirror damage, and because NSH lamp heat dissipation is lower than its Xenon counterparts, no external projector exhaust is needed.
