HT1100, an innovative projector which has evolved from the HT1000 to bring you to the next stage of home theatre.
The advanced specification DMD chip has achieved a high contrast of 3500:1
HT1100 is a DLP(Digital Light Processing)-based projector that has achieved a precise and high contrast picture quality.
The heart of the projector is a DMD(Digital Micro-mirror Device) consisting of more than hundreds of thousands moving microscopic mirrors.
Each mirror turns on or off to reflect or block each colour of light, depending on the pixel colour required.
NEC has employed an advanced specification 12deg DMD chip for a higher picture quality.Iris Lever High contrast of 3500:1 has been achieved by employing "Iris Lever" and an optical engine uniquely developed by NEC that doesn't utilizes any optical factor e.g. prism between DMD and the projection lens.
The range of the iris setting has been increased to give a 60 - 100% optical adjustment. The enhanced flexibility of the adjustment of luminance enables you to use the projector in your family room as well as a theatre room.
HT1100's exceptional power of expression reproduces even the fine nuances of dark areas that weren't visible before, enhancing the viewer's experience and the impressing enjoyment of the visual world.
Contrast Enhancement function utilizing the characteristics of the human eye is an industry first technology.
NEW SweetVision LSIThe HT1100 performance has been achieved by uncompromising pursuit of ideal images for the home theatre.
The specification itself is not enough to explain the advanced technology incorporated in HT1100.
For example, NEC developed Contrast Enhancement function with its unique technology.
This function utilizes the characteristics of the human eye where the contrast for the same tone appears to be enhanced within it's surrounding brightness.
Higher contrast makes shades sharper and reproduces details clearly.
New Contrast Enhancement is available even when the input signal is 525i(480i), 625i(576i), 525p(480p), 625p(576p), and adjustable by 64 steps. By dynamic adjustment of the transmission ratio, it reproduces subtle colours and shades precisely even on bright screens.
The overall enhanced quality of the colour reproduction is ideal even for Hi-Vision images.
You can see the images of before and after the correction on the same screen with Split Mode.

New high-vision IP conversion (de-interlacing) function
With the scaling LSI uniquely developed by NEC, problems of unclear or flickering characters on superimposed subtitles or in onscreen menus for high-vision devices that occur with HDTV 1125i (1080i) signals are solved. For movie material, for instance, only the flickering of characters in superimposed subtitles can be suppressed with little effect on video images.
Newly developed 10-bit Video Decoder LSI has achieved a precise picture quality.
The most advanced IC technology as well as optical technology has been put into HT1100.
"10-bit Video Decoder LSI", newly developed by NEC, expresses even dark areas more precisely with the gamma correction function that optimizes the characteristics of the input video signal.
Furthermore, the picture improvement function enabled by the new LSI-3D Y/C separation (for NTSC signal) has drastically reduced cross colour, cross luminance, and noise.
It reproduces vivid images by suppressing the image roughness and the colour impurity of the video signals as well as the component signals.
The new OSD(On Screen Display) provides simple operations.
The new OSDThe new OSD has employed a new GUI (Graphical User Interface) and a simple architecture consisting of three windows; TOP, SUB, and VIEW window, which has enabled easy setting and confirming of the values.
The number of items in the menu and also the number of layers have been reduced so that you can find your target item without difficulties.
The adjustment window has been made compact and easy to use.
The new colour wheel has improved colour putity.
HT1100 has employed a new 6-segment colour wheel, which reduces colour breakups and improves colour purity.
The new colour wheel supports operation at up to 5 times speed to optimise vertical synchronisation for both video and data presentations.
Rich User Memory functions (55 patterns can be stored)
With the User Memory function for Video, S-video, and other inputs, choose one visual image mode among 5 different options, including Video, Movie, or sRGB, etc., provided by the Picture Management function for each input, respectively. In addition, store up to 55 patterns of states adjusted according to user preferences on the memory on the main unit.
The test pattern display facilitates framework and focus adjustment.
The test patternA test pattern for adjusting the position or focus of image projection positions is built in.
New remote control has direct source selection buttons and a backlight function
New remote controlSwitch the input source signals, such as Video, S-video, Component, PC (RGB), and DVI, etc., directly through the remote control. Since the buttons on the remote control are lit with the backlight function the remote control is easy to operate even in a dark environment.
The screen positioning function enables you to select a desirable screen position.
The screen positioning functionWhen you project an image of 16:9 to the screen of 4:3, you can adjust the image position in vertical direction as you want.
This function has drastically improved the frexibility of installation when using a 16:9 screen.
The advanced interface supports a wide range of video sources.
Equipped with the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection System) -compatible DVI (Digital Visual Interface) and the PC Card Viewer supporting digital camera images, the HT1100 supports a variety of home entertainment multimedia of the digital age.
The enhancement of DVI input function has contributed to the higher picture quality and provides rich adjustment functions.
Furthermore, it is equipped with a screen trigger terminal that interlocks the on/off of the main unit power and the up/down of the screen with the use of devices like screen controllers.
