NEC Display Solutions Expands Multimedia Projector Lineup to Include VE Series

NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today its VE281 and VE281X mobile projectors, designed for small-to-medium-sized businesses, education environments, corporate conference rooms and mobility applications where heavy ambient light is present but the space requires a small projector.

These 2800-lumen lightweight models are affordable with essential features, including 3D Ready technology, high-contrast images and a powerful 7W speaker. The automated technologies, including Auto Power On and quick startup/shutdown, make VE Series projectors an eco-friendly choice. ECO Mode™ technology, a carbon savings meter, extended filter life, and energy-saving features also are key elements. Intelligent Driving Scheme (IDS2) technology has been adopted to extend the lamp life of the projector up to 6000 hours in ECO Mode and 4000 hours in normal use.

“NEC’s new VE Series brings a new mobile family to our multimedia projector lineup with the intention of providing high brightness to small areas with heavy ambient lighting,” said Rich McPherson, Senior Product Manager for Projectors at NEC Display Solutions. “Its automated technologies and lightweight design make it ideal for mobility applications where the projector is frequently moved between locations.”

NEC’s VE281 and VE281X include the following features:

  • SVGA and XGA resolutions
  • 2800 lumens of brightness
  • 3000:1 high contrast ratio from the latest Texas Instruments DLP® engine
  • BrilliantColor™ technology provides accurate color reproduction
  • Intelligent Driving Scheme (IDS2) enables increased lamp life and contrast ratio
  • HDMI input connects you to high-definition sources
  • Compact size and lightweight design simplify transport
  • Automatic Power ON via RGB (15-pin) input
  • Quick startup/cooling/shutdown minimizes projector setup and teardown between meetings
  • ECO Mode technology helps extend lamp life and lowers power consumption
  • Lamp life up to 4000 hours normal and up to 6000 hours in ECO Mode
  • Carbon savings meter calculates the positive effects of operating the projector in ECO Mode
  • Intuitive remote control provides one-touch source changes

The VE281 and VE281X will be available in January 2013 at an estimated street price of $369 and $449, respectively. Each projector ships with a 2 year limited parts and labor warranty. The lamp is covered for one year or 500 hours, whichever comes first. Education customers receive an additional year, and registered Star Student customers receive an additional 2 years on their warranty.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
