NEC NC1201L - Projection Room / Cinema Projection


The new NC1201L Digital Cinema Projector - Laser focused on maximum visual experience for smaller venues

The all-new NC1201L cinema projector delivers a brighter visual experience, suitable for smaller venues with screen sizes of up to 12m wide. Built upon the latest laser light source technology, our second generation of this compact digital cinema projector will amaze your customers with crisper colours and an exceptional image quality. The highly flexible and silent NC1201L allows for an easy installation without the need for a special exhaust system, supporting ceiling, floor or mobile applications. Additionally the maintenance free operation and a low, eco-friendly power consumption result in an overall reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) and therefore a greater per seat revenue. Take your customers into the next generation of digital cinema, delivering a stunning visual experience for a brighter future.
