NEC has rolled out a new portable LED projector designed to be compact enough to take on the road that also has impressive brightness. Often when a projector is made with an eye towards portability using LEDs, it’s not a very bright unit and requires a very dark room to work well. NEC’s new L102W portable projector is bright and uses long lasting LEDs rather than a traditional bulb.
The LED projector has a brightness rating of 1000 lumens. By using LEDs rather than normal bulbs, the projector will last much longer and need no replacement bulbs. Anyone who has replaced a projector bulb in the past knows how expensive that can be. The projector has WXGA 1280 x 800 resolution.
The L102W weighs in at 3.1 pounds and is about the same size as a typical hardback novel. Other features that make the projector portable and easier to use include an integrated power supply and a simple user interface.
Connectivity options include HDMI, VGA, and composite inputs. The device also has 1GB of internal storage. An integrated Office Viewer supports common Microsoft Office formats like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint so you don’t need a PC. It also has an SD card slot for expanding storage up to 32GB. The projector has a 10,000:1 contrast ratio and has integrated WiFi and a 2W speaker. the projector will sell for $799.
