1. Introduction

Introduction to the Projector

This section introduces you to your new projector and describes the features and controls.

Congratulations on Your Purchase of the Projector

This projector is one of the very best projectors available today.The projector enables you to project precise images up to 500 inches across (measured diagonally) from your PC or Mac computer (desktop or notebook), VCR, Blu-ray player, or document camera.

You can use the projector on a tabletop or cart, you can use the projector to project images from behind the screen, and the projector can be permanently mounted on a ceiling*1.The remote control can be used wirelessly.

*1 Do not attempt to mount the projector on a ceiling yourself.

The projector must be installed by qualified technicians in order to ensure proper operation and reduce the risk of bodily injury.

In addition, the ceiling must be strong enough to support the projector and the installation must be in accordance with any local building codes. Please consult your dealer for more information.

General

Single-chip DLP projector with high resolution and high brightness

Realized to project the image in the resolution 1920 × 1200 pixels (WUXGA), the aspect ratio in 16:10, and the brightness in 8000 lumens.

Light source · Brightness

A long-life laser diode is equipped in the light module

The product can be operated at low cost because the laser light source can be used for a long time without requiring replacement or maintenance.

Brightness can be adjusted within a wide range

Unlike with ordinary light sources, the brightness can be adjusted from 20 to 100% in 1% increments.

[CONSTANT BRIGHTNESS] mode

Brightness normally decreases with use, but by selecting [CONSTANT BRIGHTNESS] mode, sensors inside the projector detect and automatically adjust the output, thereby maintaining constant brightness throughout the life of the light module.

However, if brightness output is set at the maximum, brightness will decrease with use.

Installation

Wide range of optional lenses selectable according to the place of installation

This projector supports 8 types of optional lenses, providing a selection of lenses adapted to a variety of places of installation and projection methods.

In addition, the lenses can be mounted and removed in one touch.

Note that no lens is mounted upon shipment from the factory. Please purchase optional lenses separately.

This projector can be installed any angle within vertical and horizontal 360° range, however, life of optical parts will be shorten in the following installation state:

When the projector is installed on which lens faces downward.

When the intake vent on the projector side faces downward in the portrait installation. (See page 154)

Double stackable for high light output projection

By stacking 2 projectors, increased brightness on a large screen is possible.

Power lens control for quick and easy adjustment

By using buttons on the projector or the remote control, zoom, focus, and position (lens shift) can be adjusted.

1. Introduction

Videos

Wide range of input/output terminals (HDMI,DisplayPort,BNC,HDBaseT,etc.) and built-in monaural speaker

The projector is equipped with a variety of input/output terminals: HDMI, DisplayPort, BNC (5-core), computer (analog), HDBaseT, etc.

The projector’s HDMI input/output terminals and DisplayPort input terminal support HDCP.

HDBaseT, promoted and advanced by the HDBaseT Alliance, is a consumer electronic (CE) and commercial connectivity technology.

Slot for optional board

This projector has a slot for optional boards (sold separately).

Simultaneous display of 2 images (PIP/PICTURE BY PICTURE)

Two images can be projected simultaneously with a single projector.

There are two types of layouts for the two images: “picture-in-picture” (PIP) in which a sub-picture is displayed on the main picture, and “picture-by-picture” (PICTURE BY PICTURE) in which the main and sub pictures are displayed next to each other.

Multi-screen projection using multiple projectors

This projector is equipped with multiple HDMI input & output terminals that can connect multiple projectors in a daisy chain.By dividing and projecting high resolution image on each projector, high quality image can be realized.

Furthermore, the boundaries of the screens are smoothed using an edge blending function.

Supports HDMI 3D format

This projector can be used to watch videos in 3D using commercially-available active shutter-type 3D eyewear and 3D emitters that support Xpand 3D.

Network

Convenient utility software (User Supportware) provided as standard

The three utility software stored in the enclosed NEC Projector CD-ROM (Virtual Remote Tool, PC Control Utility Pro 4 (for Windows ) and PC Control Utility Pro 5 (for Mac OS )) can be used.

CRESTRON ROOMVIEW compatible

This projector supports CRESTRON ROOMVIEW,allowing multiple devices connected to the network to be managed from a computer or controller.

Energy-saving

Energy-saving design with a standby power consumption of 0.27 watts or under

When the on-screen menu’s standby mode is set to “NORMAL”, the power consumption in the standby mode is 0.27 watts or under.

0.18 watts with power voltage AC100V-130V and 0.27 watts with power voltage AC200V-240V.

“LIGHT MODE” for low power consumption and “Carbon Meter” display

The projector is equipped with an “LIGHT MODE” for reducing power consumption during use. Furthermore, the

power-saving effect when the LIGHT MODE is set is converted into the amount of reductions of CO2 emissions and this is indicated on the confirmation message displayed when the power is turned off and at “Information” on the on-screen menu (CARBON METER).
