NEC Debuts New VE281 and VE281X VE Series Projectors

NEC VE281NEC Display Solutions recently debuted its new VE281 and VE281X mobile projectors, both of which have been specifically designed with the small-to-medium-sized businesses, education environments, corporate conference rooms and mobility applications in mind.

Both of these projectors are capable of producing 2,800 lumens of brightness, are lightweight, affordable and produce high-contrast images. In addition to that, each one comes with a powerful 7-watt speaker built-in for clear, crisp audio.
