NEC adds five to M-Series

NEC Display Solutions bolstered its M-Series with five short-throw projectors, designed for classrooms and small to medium sized meeting rooms.

The TCO-certified projectors have a throw ratio of 0.47:1, which results in a distance of about 75cm/90cm between the front of the lens and a 77”/87” whiteboard.

NEC says the projectors have a lamp life and filter-cleaning interval of up to 6,000 hours and effective energy-conservation features. The Auto Eco Mode automatically adapts the luminous power of the lamp to the presentation content. Dark content results in reduced luminosity and at the same time lower power consumption. The 75% AV Mute function allows the picture to be muted by pushing the green AV mute button on the remote control. The projector remains fully operational during breaks in the presentation.

The projectors provide images in both XGA (1024 x 768) and WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution with a contrast ratio of 2,000:1. All models have two VGA- as well as one HDMI-input, are network-capable and have three USB ports. The first USB type A interface supports a viewer function so still images can directly be projected from a USB stick. The second USB type A input allows owners to connect an optional WLAN module in order to send content wirelessly via the network using the Image Express Utility Lite software. The PC control 4 software additionally allows users to control and monitor multiple projectors. The USB type B interface establishes a direct connection to any PC.
