NEC NC1700L - Projection Room / Cinema Projection


Laser focused on a supreme cinematic experience for medium-sized venues

Designed for theatres with mid-sized screens of up to 17m wide, the NC1700L projector delivers an enhanced cinematic experience. Built upon the latest RB laser technology, this innovation using a red and blue laser light source goes beyond the colour and brightness output of traditional laser phosphor cinema projection systems. Delight your audience with vibrant crisp colours and exceptional image quality.

With high flexibility for easy installation, the NC1700L does not require a special exhaust system, thus supporting ceiling, floor and mobile applications. Additionally, the virtually maintenance free operation and low, eco-friendly power consumption, results in a reduced overall total cost of ownership (TCO) and therefore a greater per seat margin. Take your audience to the next generation of digital cinema, delivering a stunning visual experience for a brighter future.
