NEC’s new P525 laser projectors are “quieter than a ticking watch”

NEC has introduced two new P525 laser projectors that boast a “virtually silent” performance, promising no noise disturbance during meetings and presentations at WXGA and WUXGA resolution.

The NEC P525 laser projectors feature low operating noise levels of just 22dB, making them quieter than the ticking of a watch.

The P525 laser projectors are fully future-proofed, with 4K@30Hz input processing and up to 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation thanks to its laser light source. Furthermore, the optical laser LCD engine is completely sealed, meaning there is no need to change bulbs or filters over the projectors’ lifetime.

NEC’s latest projectors provide comprehensive connectivity and optional WiFi, while the embedded MultiPresenter function enables wireless presentation and screen-sharing for up to 16 devices simultaneously. They also work straight out of the box, with no set-up necessary, and have low power consumption of 330W in normal mode.

“Our new P525WL and P525UL projectors set new standards for quietness in meetings and presentations,” said Alistair Round, Product Manager Commercial Display Solutions at NEC Europe.

“Presentations might be all about the visuals, but we can’t shut off our senses at will – especially our hearing. Noise from traditional projectors is intrusive and distracts attendees from the content up on the screen. This hurts our concentration, harms collaboration, and forces people to raise their voice.

“People should be able to focus on presentations, video and other content without being distracted by noise from the projector, which is why we designed these two 5000 ANSI lumen projectors to be virtually noiseless. As a manufacturer of world-leading display technology we don’t just think visually, but consider how we can improve the whole experience for everyone,” said Round.

“NEC’s new projectors are a great example of this approach, bringing a sense of calm to the meeting space and enabling teams to share ideas and collaborate more effectively. With the P525WL and P525UL, scalable visualisation has never looked so good, or sounded so silent.”

The new NEC P525UL projector will be available in December 2018, while P525WL will launch in March 2019.
