    ITASCA, Ill., April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- NEC Technologies, Inc.
 (Nasdaq: NIPNY) sheds more light on the rental/staging/installation
 marketplace with the introduction of the XT9000, the newest offering from the
 company's growing family of Nighthawk Series High Light Output (HLO(TM))
 projection systems.  Designed to produce exceptional brightness and superior
 image quality, the DLP(TM)-based XT9000 provides high-performance projection
 power for large-scale venues requiring luminous intensity, such as concert
 halls, sports arenas and theatrical events.
     "We've received a tremendous response to the award-winning XT5000, our
 initial Nighthawk Series projector and new SX6000 HLO projector.  The XT9000
 provides users with another exceptional projection choice for large venue
 applications demanding higher brightness," explained Joe Azzarello, projection
 systems product manager for Visual Systems at NEC Technologies.  "The new
 Nighthawk projector will deliver some of the highest quality projected images
 available today.  And when you combine the XT9000's versatility with NEC
 Technologies' solid reputation for customer-centered service and support, the
 decision to add this product to the Nighthawk Series was as clear as the
 images it projects."
 
     Picture Perfect
     Able to display clear images even in the brightest room, the XT9000 HLO
 projector provides users with 8,000 ANSI lumens of brightness while being
 powered by a new .9" 3-chip processor based on DLP technology from Texas
 Instruments.  The projector features native 1024 x 768 (XGA) resolution and
 can also provide detailed and focused non-native resolution source display via
 its Advanced AccuBlend(TM) Intelligent Pixel Blending Technology.
     Users will also benefit from VORTEX Technology(TM), which provides data
 and graphic displays with superior uniformity, color and contrast, and video
 displays with greater depth, detail, brighter whites and more realistic
 colors.
     Fitted with a digital DVI interface, the XT9000 is simple to link to a
 wide range of computers, and an integrated PC Card interface makes it easy to
 back up and upgrade data at a moment's notice. Furthermore, NEC Technologies'
 exclusive AutoSense(TM) technology automatically synchronizes and adjusts the
 projector to optimize incoming computer and video signals, eliminating
 time-consuming manual adjustments.  In addition, users can also save time by
 storing key lens positions in the XT9000's memory using the projector's Lens
 Indexing feature.
     For applications that demand double the brightness, NEC Technologies has
 designed the XT9000 with a convenient snap-in device so it can be easily
 double-stacked without the use of special frames or racks, raising the
 brightness to 16,000 ANSI lumens.
 
     Availability
     The XT9000 will be available in May through authorized rental, staging,
 corporate and ProAV integrators.  Pricing is yet to be determined.  For more
 information about the XT9000, consult the NEC Technologies Web site at
