    ITASCA, Ill., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- NEC Technologies (Nasdaq: NIPNY)
 announced today that its new HD cinema projector, the SX6000DC, will be used
 at Carnegie Hall on April 16, 2001 as part of the event "A Man for All
 Seasons," a star-studded tribute to Dudley Moore.
     Two of NEC's new SX6000DC HD Cinema projectors will be used for the event.
 The NEC projectors will display individual clips from Moore's films as well as
 a montage of clips from his career onto a 15' x 20' screen situated on the
 Carnegie Hall stage.  The SX6000DC will additionally project a live camera
 feed of speakers at the podium during the event as well as show Moore's
 reaction shots, giving every attendee at the event a front-row view.
     "When you're honoring someone who has a distinguished film career, and
 then you end up just running it on video, it diminishes the honor in a way.
 With NEC's projectors, we are able to provide images of cinematic
 quality -- the film clips will be shown in HD," said Tony Adams, the producer
 of the event, who also produced both "10" and "Micki & Maude" starring Moore.
 "Cinephiles have raved about the NEC projectors at other events.  You get to
 Carnegie Hall by practicing, and only the best make it to Carnegie Hall.  NEC
 has practiced and their projectors have been proven to be the best at previous
 events, so we wanted them for this prestigious tribute to Dudley Moore."
     According to the event's program, the tribute will feature appearances by
 Lauren Bacall, Chevy Chase, Christopher Cross, Bo Derek, John Dankworth, Jill
 Eikenberry, Jimmy Fallon, Eric Idle, Cleo Lane, Robert Mann, Mary Tyler Moore,
 Tony Randall and Barbara Walters as well as a few surprise guests.
     Proceeds from the event will go to Music For All Seasons (MFAS) and the
 Dudley Moore Research Fund for PSP.  MFAS brings live music into hospitals,
 nursing homes, children's facilities and rehabilitation centers in New York,
 New Jersey, Pennsylvania and California.  Moore has been president of this
 organization for almost ten years. The Dudley Moore Research Fund for PSP was
 created in November 1999 to raise funds to find a cure for Progressive
 Supranuclear Palsy, a degenerative condition with which Moore is struggling
 and for which there currently is no cure.
     "NEC Technologies is honored to have been chosen to supply the projectors
 for this event, and we are happy to support these very worthy causes," said
 Steve Jackson, director of product development for the Visual Systems Division
 at NEC Technologies.  "We are also excited to play a role in honoring one of
 the foremost entertainers of our time."
     The SX6000DC incorporates NEC's exclusive TriDigital Image Processing
 Technology to recreate the look and feel of film at a fraction of the price of
 other electronic cinema systems currently available.  For more information
