Selecting [NORMAL] for [STANDBY MODE] from the menu can put the projector in power-saving mode that consumes only 0.22W(100-130 V AC)/0.39W (200-240 V AC).

Carbon Meter

This feature will show energy-saving effect in terms of CO2 emission reduction (kg) when the projector’s [ECO MODE] is set to [AUTO ECO], [NORMAL], or [ECO].

The amount of CO2 emission reduction will be displayed in the confirmation message at the time of power-off and in the INFO of the on-screen menu.

Lamp life up to 8000 hours*2

Using in Eco Mode (ECO) allows you to prolong the projector’s lamp life up to 8000 hours (up to 4000 hours in ECO MODE OFF).

*2 UM351W/UM361X: 6000 hours (up to 3800 hours in ECO MODE OFF)

Two HDMI inputs supports digital signals

The two HDMI inputs provide HDCP compatible digital signals.The HDMI input also supports audio signal.

Project the image on a smart phone and a tablet

Since the projector supports MHL (Mobile High-definition Link), it can project videos and photos on a smart phone and a tablet terminal by connection, and output their sound from the built-in speaker.

20 W built-in speaker for an integrated audio solution

Powerful 20 watt monaural speaker provides volume need for large rooms.

MIC Input provided

A MIC input jack for a commercially available dynamic microphone is useful for your presentation in a conference room or lecture in a classroom.

The optional interactive white board kit (NP04Wi, sold separately) and the projector can be used to convert your whiteboard into a virtual touchscreen.

By the optional stylus pen, it's able to directly write-into the projected image that realizes more effective presentation and lecture.
