Press Release: NEC launches Full HD 3D ready compact meeting room projector

21 May 2013

The latest addition to the NEC projector portfolio brings a range of benefits for corporate and for higher education customers. These include high brightness with perfect image quality for even the smallest details through its 1080p resolution with 2000:1 contrast. All HD and 3D content, including Blu-Ray, is delivered in extraordinary picture quality with HDMI 3D support.


The PE401H is an important addition to RGB's projection portfolio as it offers native 1080p projection to deliver HD and 3D content in demanding bright conditions.

Its compact design, measuring 350mm by 280mm, and the large 1.7x optical zoom, allows greater flexibility when using the projector in mid to large meeting rooms or classrooms. Even at this very compact size, the 4000 ANSI lumens makes it suitable for recommended screen sizes of up to 130" in normal office ambient light conditions. The large 1.7x optical zoom allows high flexibility in positioning the PE401H towards the screen. This also helps to minimise replacement costs of ceiling mounted units as the position of the mount usually doesn’t need to be changed when replacing an old projector.


A variety of different inputs such as HDMI 3D, Video, S-Video, Computer and Audio inputs allow connectivity with all types of digital and analogue input signals such as desktop computers and notebooks, sound systems, Blu-Ray players, and visualisers.


“The PE401H brings together so many benefits of our projector range in its unique style setting it apart in the semi-professional projector market,” said Ulf Greiner, Product Line Manager Business Projectors at NEC Display Solutions Europe. “Designed with NEC’s uncompromising quality, reliability and eco technology, the PE401H has so much to offer customers looking for a compact Full HD projector. We are excited to bring this projector to the market as it enhances our total projector portfolio and responds to the growing need for higher resolution when sharing visual information with a larger audience.”


NEC will offer a free DisplayNote Presenter licence to all customers buying the new PE401H projector, valid until 31 March 2014. To learn more about the collaborative solution as well as the free DisplayNote Presenter licence, please visit:
