Sharp/NEC to launch super-silent NEC NC603L Digital Cinema Projector


Munich November 7, 2023 Sharp NEC Display Solutions Europe announces the launch of the new NEC NC603L digital cinema projector. The compact projector model is the quietest 6,000 Lumen cinema projector on the market with a noise level of less than 39dB. It features the latest laser generation for highest efficiency with up to 50,000 hours almost maintenance-free operation and lenses interchangeable with the NEC NC1000C family, making it the perfect choice for long term performance.

The NC603L projector enables flexible installations and usage and it can be installed on the floor or on the ceiling, while the wide lens shift allows for flexible positioning. Additionally, the brightness level for 3D/2D can be adjusted from 100 to 30 percent. These key assets make the new model the ideal solution for small projection booths or even boothless and mobile cinemas.

The super-silent NEC NC603L laser projector is the laser alternative to the NC1000C digital cinema projector: it provides a brightness of 6,000 Lumen and is equipped with the latest laser generation technology offering the highest efficiency, which results in a low power consumption of only 0.89 kW. Its sealed optical engine and sealed laser light source minimize dust ingress and ensure a consistent projection performance of up to 50,000 operating hours. This results in a significantly lower total cost of ownership (TCO). In addition, there is also the option to incorporate the Dolby IMS3000 media server.

"We are delighted to launch the NEC NC603L laser projector, which sets a new standard for quiet and efficient cinema projection. In line with its core values silent, sealed, sustainable, the compact projector offers a level of performance and flexibility that is perfectly suited to the needs of the cinemas,” said Gerd Kaiser, Senior Product Line Manager Large Venue and Digital Cinema Projection at Sharp NEC Display Solutions Europe.

The new NEC NC603L laser projector will be available from the end of November 2023. For more information on the new model, please visit dedicated web pages.
