Projector specialist, NEC Display Solutions, has become the first manufacturer to have all of its models gain full Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI) compliance.

After undergoing stringent testing in laboratories in Japan, all of the manufacturers models – including the NC1200C, NC2000C and NC3200S ranges – were certified in the DCI levels of Digital Cinema System Specification (DCSS) Version 1.2 and DCSS CTP Version 1.1.

NEC's president and chief operating officer, Pierre Richer, said everyone at the company was beyond proud at the accomplishment.

“To have a full product line that meets the needs of today’s exhibitors is not only essential, but expected," he said. "NEC continually proves its place in the industry by capitalizing on stringent standards and providing innovative programmes to enhance our products.”

The DCI certification was established by a group of the biggest Hollywood film studios in 2002. Its purpose is to establish and document specifications for an open architecture for digital cinama that ensures a uniform and high level of technical performance, reliability and quality.

Some of the manufacturer's new projectors include the NC1200C at 9,000 lumens of brightness for screen sizes of up to 46-feet wide, the NC2000C at 17,000 lumens for screens up to 65-feet wide and the ultra-bright NC3200S at 31,000 lumens for screens up to 105-feet wide.
