While Full HD might be the current standard in home entertainment, things are a bit different in the digital cinemas' segment, where even higher resolutions are required, and that's exactly the reason why NEC has just introduced the NC3240S, its first 4K DLP digital cinema projector.
Featuring the new 1.38-inch 4K DLP Cinema Chip from Texas Instruments, the NC3240S is fully Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI) Compliant, the projector providing a brightness of 31,000 ANSI lumens and offering bright images on screens sized up to 105-feet wide.
The device also sports a newly designed cooling system, which creates positive air pressure internally to prevent contaminates from entering the main chassis, Custom DMD shielding, which protects the projector from dust and oil, thereby providing optimal picture quality.
Another interesting feature is represented by the One-Touch Operation and Memory Functions, which store eight projector configurations such as lens shift position, zoom and focus, and lamp power settings, while the Auto Lamp Brightness Control continuously monitors the lamp’s brightness and maintains a consistent level by adjusting the lamp power as it ages.
Much like most other high-end projectors on the market these days, the device also provides 3D capabilities with special 3D control connector and optional automatic turret to mount polarizers in front of the lens.
The powerful 7KW version of the cinema projector will be available from the beginning of 2011 together with the 4KW variant for smaller screens, but NEC has refrained from providing any significant pricing details just yet.
