4K Cinema RB Laser Projector

NEC NC2041L 4K Cinema RB Laser Projector



The all-in-one RB laser projector for medium sized format screens

With the NEC NC2041L 4K RB laser projector cinemas are taking advantage of both laser phosphor and RGB laser technologies resulting in a powerful projector which delivers compelling benefits in terms of cost, operational efficiency and immersive image quality. The use of a red and blue laser light source goes beyond the colour and brightness output of traditional laser phosphor cinema projection systems providing a brilliant image with high uniformity. The efficient light processing system has a low initial cost compared to RGB laser projectors and delivers huge savings in operational costs compared to Xenon based projection systems by avoiding lamp and filter replacements. Easy and space saving installations are supported through a single solution without external chillers, light sources or the need for exhaust ventilation.

Thanks to the high initial brightness level of 20,000 lumen, this projector is a premium solution for medium-sized and premium format cinema screens of up to 20m. It is also ideal for additional non-cinematic screenings such as company presentations or gaming events helping to increase usage and maximise revenue for cinema operators.


  • Outstanding Picture Quality – full 4K resolution (4096 x 2160 pixel) and wide colour space combined with a homogeneous and contrast-rich laser image quality creates a unique immersive cinema experience.
  • Enjoy a Lower TCO – highest reliability, maintenance-free operation, low power consumption and up to 40000 hours life; the Laser light source results in a significantly lower total cost of ownership.
  • One box solution – the projector is easy to handle and install as an all-in-one-device solution without the need for an external chiller, external laser light source or external exhaust system.
  • Brilliant for every purpose – The brightness output can be individually adjusted to provide crisp images whether enjoying 2D and 3D movie playback.
  • Big on brightness – the high brightness output of 20000 lumen creates outstanding images on screen sizes of up to 20 m.
