A bright 3-chip DLP laser installation projector delivering all the benefits associated with the latest laser light source technology.

Functions and Features

Advanced installation capabilities
High brightness and outstanding images

The projector realizes a brightness of 12,000 lumens through use of a high-brightness laser light source, so vivid images are projected in large spaces such as halls and auditoriums. Furthermore, use of a Full-HD (1,920 × 1,080 pixels) 3-chip DLP® that allocates a single DLP® chip to each RGB color realizes high-resolution, largescreen projection that greatly surpasses that of 1-chip types. In addition, a unique high resolution function, 3rd generation contrast enhancement, increases the sense of contrast of the border areas of images to realize more vivid and sharper image projection.

No more lamp replacements

Up to 20,000 hours* of maintenance-free operation possible due to the laser light source.

Light source and optical light path image

*Actual hours may vary depending on usage conditions. Not a guaranteed time.

A dustproof design supported by NEC’s unique closed-loop cooling system

The projector has a dustproof design to prevent the staining of optical components from the ingress of dust and the deterioration of brightness and image quality. Heat within the dustproof unit is exhausted from a heatsink, and the external air used for cooling does not directly contact the optical system, so the design offers both excellent dustproofing and cooling.

Tilt-free and portrait installation support

The projector can be rotated freely (360 ° ) to point up or down depending on the installation requirements and can be rotated (along with the screen if necessary) to a vertical alignment so that portrait content can be viewed without black bars on the sides when landscape mode is used.

Built-in edge blending

This function seamlessly blends multiple projected images to display a single high-resolution image.

Multiscreen function

Multi-display capabilities and tiling technologies are integrated into the PH series. This projector is also equipped with multiple digital input and HDMI output terminals that can connect multiple projectors in a digital daisy chain. These cutting-edge functions produce a beautiful high-resolution image , including a 4K/2K high-resolution display using 4 PH1202HL projectors and various picture in picture / picture by picture configurations.

Geometric Correction

Projection isn’t confined to a standard flat screen or wall with the NEC PH series. Geometric correction allows these models to project an image on spheres, cylinders, corner angles and many more non-standard surfaces.

Equipped with NEC’s NV1301 4,096 × 2,160 scaler chip and the 3rd-generation contrast enhancement circuit

This 10-bit video processor represents an enormous leap in video processing, with true flagship performance in noise reduction, de-interlacing and scaling.

  • 4K Ultra HD support (4,096 × 2,160 / 3,840 × 2,160)
  • 12-bit gamma correction
  • Advanced colour correction (6-axis saturation and hue adjustment / skin tone)
  • Video and film cadence detection (multi-cadence)
  • Per-pixel motion adaptive de-interlacing
  • Detail enhancement
  • Super resolution correction (3rd-generation contrast enhancement)
  • 3D random, mosquito and block noise reduction
Compatible with diverse signal sources
Built-in HDBaseT support

Simplify your installations with HDBaseT, which is optimized for video applications and supports uncompressed Full HD digital video, audio, Ethernet, and various control signals. With only a single cable (up to 100 m) to run, infrastructure and labor costs are reduced, installations are significantly easier, and there is no cable clutter to manage. With uncompressed HD video support, images have never been more stunning. What’s more, control signals are contained in the same cable.

Wide selection of inputs and outputs such as HDMI and DisplayPort

The projector is equipped with a wide range of input/output terminals and compatible with a variety of image sources, which lets you connect HDMI, DisplayPort, computer (analogue), 5-core BNC, and video sources.

HDMI DisplayPort

Expansion Slot

The slot technology allows for the integration of Open Pluggable Specification (OPS*) boards and other option slot products without the need to store additional external equipment. This offers the greater flexibility customers require.

  • *OPS is a standard established by Intel Corporation.
