Why not take a look into the near future: whether you choose the entry model VT58 or one of the two professional models VT480 or VT580, you will soon find it indispensable. You won't know how you managed before.

Do you want to step into the world of modern projecting with a top projector? Or a consummate all-rounder that's great for virtually any professional purpose? NEC's new VT models open up a myriad of possibilities and wealth of applications. They also have exceptional extras and value for the money you'll hardly find elsewhere.

What makes the new VTs so exceptional? That's easy: they include the best, most reliable and tried and true features of their successful predecessors. These three new projectors have now been enhanced with numerous special features to create a series far exceeding anything in its class.

From school to training, business to seminar.
You're looking for a flexible projector for your education and training institute? You want an all-rounder for your company that anyone can operate with ease? Whatever high-quality presentations you wish to make – and wherever you wish to make them – one of our new VTs will be happy to illuminate your work with its excellent technical specifications.

Brilliant intensity, in large rooms as well.
Even our entry model, the VT58, has 1,600 ANSI Lumens for powerful radiance. It thus offers astonishing luminosity for a projector of its category. But its sister models, the VT480/580, are just as accomplished. With 2,000 ANSI Lumens, their bright, crisp images dazzle audiences – no matter how large the seminar or meeting room.

Greatest user convenience and handy new features.
NEC has put many years of experience into developing an intuitive, effortless user menu. Valuable functions and innovative features optimise the projector's unique ease of operation.

Thanks to Quick-Start, you can begin immediately.
NEC's new VTs indulge users with a level of comfort never seen before, including, for example, an innovative Quick-Start function, which starts the projector at lightning speed. But even more: the VTs identify the input signal – whether from PC, DVD player or another source – in a flash, and adapt in seconds. You save time and can begin your presentation immediately.

Quick Power-Off: save time when shutting your VT down.
Your VT also saves valuable time when you are finished. Thanks to its Quick Power-Off function, it shuts down faster than your laptop, reducing cool-down time to a minimum. After only 30 seconds, the fan is off and you can hurry to your next meeting with your VT. By the way, the VTs also have an integrated Off-Timer function that automatically turns them off at the time you've programmed.

SDTV Deinterlacer for optimised video playback.
No matter whether you want to show your seminar participants a film or play your customers a product video – the integrated SDTV Deinterlacer gives you improved video playback, guaranteeing outstanding visual results.

Model of diversity with a wide range of connection options.
One glance at the new terminal and its input and output connections shows that the new LTs are more than versatile; they open up a world of opportunities, including the option of holding presentations without a notebook, using only a PCMCIA card or USB stick. Both LTs enable the widest possible range of connections. The LT380 also includes a DVI-D input.

Barely audible operating noise.
Especially when you present training films, the ideally suited projector should "walk softly". Here again, your new VT is exemplary: at only 25 dB (VT58) or 29 dB (VT480/580), it runs so quietly that you'll have to perk up your ears to hear it at all.

Minimal weight for maximum flexibility.
The three VTs make it easy to present in different rooms. At only 2.8 kg (VT58)/2.9 kg (VT480/580), they are highly portable and gladly accompany you anywhere.

Perfect adjustment with vertical Keystone Correction.
Modern presentation often means changing rooms quickly, e.g. classrooms. Your VT has not the slightest problem with this. Just set it up and turn it on – your image will appear perfectly, based on the vertical projection angle.

Improved wall colour correction for walls of various colours.
Thanks to improved wall colour correction, the VTs optimally harmonise image colours to the colour of the projection surface, for true-to-colour pictures anywhere. Even if your projection surface is a schoolroom blackboard, the projected image will look just as it would if you were projecting onto a white screen.

VT + laptop or PC: a great team!
The VT58 has an RGB analogue input for easy connection to a computer. The VT480 and VT580 both have two inputs. This means that a second PC or laptop can be connected to a permanently installed projector. An additional comfortable IT feature is the VT480/580's remote control with Mouse Control function.

Eco Mode is even more economical.
If you don't need your VT for a few moments during a seminar or meeting, just switch it into Eco Mode. This saves energy and reduces operating noise and lamp usage. The lamp life of the new VTs, by the way, can reach approximately 3,000 (VT480/580) or 4,000 hours (VT58). Apropos economy: it is even possible to run a signal through while in standby. This saves energy while allowing you to check your presentation on the control monitor before showing it to your audience.

Always ready to go.
NEC's unrivaled service with 3-year warranty in Europe is an especially attractive bonus.
