NEC’s TCO Certification Means Environmental, Economical Projector Options

NEC Display Solution’s NP215 and NP410 are the first projectors worldwide to be awarded the new TCO Certified label for quality and environment.

In order to receive TCO certification, a projector needs to:

  • Satisfy strict criteria regarding acoustics, energy consumption and the materials used in the product and its packaging.
  • Feature an Eco mode in which the device can be operated with lower energy consumption and less noise. When the video or computer interface is disconnected, the projector has to enter standby mode automatically.

In addition the meeting the above, the NP215 and NP410 offer a Carbon Savings Meter tool to calculate and total the CO2 savings that are achieved when the device is being operated in Eco mode.

With this in mind, are you leaning more towards a “green” approach in your projector selection? If not, what factors have you hesitant to make the move?
