and Reliable Large Screen Technology at Home

CHICAGO, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Are you tired of going all the way to the movie theater when you want to enjoy an exciting, jaw-dropping entertainment experience? Having your own home theater is now a reality for millions of people throughout the country. Sure, it would be cool to be the envy of your friends by owning the latest flat screen entertainment technology. But it used to seem like something only the rich and famous could afford. Until now.

NEC introduces the new Showcase Series(TM) home entertainment projector and plasma display line which offers first-time buyers to discerning enthusiasts a complete range of vivid, adaptable and reliable large screen display choices. The Showcase Series includes two new wide screen HT projectors and four next-generation plasma models (two 42", a 50" and a 61"), along with the award-winning high-contrast HT1100(TM) projector.
