3D Ready
When combined with active shutter glasses (NP02GL), this projector uses DLP Link™ technology, developed by Texas Instruments, to create 3D images.
Dual Computer Inputs
Ensures quick switching between presentations.
BrilliantColor™
Advanced video processing from Texas Instruments delivers exceptional picture management control for both progressive and interlaced sources, while making images more vibrant, colors more realistic and blacks richer with detail.
ECO Mode™
Extends lamp life, lowers audible noise and reduces total cost of ownership.
Carbon Savings Meter
Calculates the positive effects of operating the projector in ECO Mode, which is encouraged by an optional message at startup. A green ECO Mode button on the remote control makes the switch easy.
Quick Startup and Quick Power-Off
Allows users to begin presenting within 3 to 4 seconds and allows immediate power off with no cooling required after shutdown to ensure efficient energy usage.
Auto Power On
Powers on the projector as soon as it is plugged into a power outlet.

Multimedia Projectors

The “Out Of Range” error message indicates that you have exceeded the maximum possible video resolution or horizontal & vertical frequency that your display device is capable of using. Lower your input resolution and horizontal/vertical frequency to one that is listed as compatible in the display device specifications chart.
<ul> <li>In the projectors on screen menu select the Setup option.</li> <li>Under setup go to Installation or Installation 1 in the sub menu. </li> <li>Within installation you will need to select Orientation.</li> <li>In orientation select the box that says desktop front, press enter and change the option to either ceiling front or ceiling rear depending on which direction the unit is facing in regards to the screen. </li> </ul>
<ul> <li>If the lamp indicator light on the projector is solid red then you would need to change the lamp as it has been used beyond its usable life. </li> <li>Once the new lamp is installed you will need to reset the lamp hours of the projector with the remote control. </li> <li>While the unit is in standby mode, meaning the power light is solid orange, you will need to hold down the help button on the remote for 10 to 15 seconds.</li> <li>Once the lamp hours are reset the lamp LED light will go out and at that time the unit should power on normally. </li> </ul>

This tip works for <u>most</u> NEC Projectors: First, ensure that the projector is powered “on.” Second, hold down the “cancel” or “exit” button on the projector for about 15 to 20 seconds.
NEC projector input panels feature RGB computer inputs, a composite video input (yellow RCA type plug) and an S-Video input. The RGB computer input (blue) and can also be used with an optional component video adapter for connection to a DVD player or other video source, if desired.
Function F* (this varies from computer to computer)
This can be done by going into the OSM and making the change there or by sending a specific RS232 command to the projector from a computer.
If you are experiencing an issues related to image quality, colors, and signal, Factory Reset is the first setup to perform. (Please make a note of any custom setting prior to doing a factory reset.)
With certain NEC projectors it is possible to project onto non-flat surfaces such as cylinders or corners using free software such as the Geometric Correction Tool, Keep in mind that the 16:9 format will not be supported.
<p>To permanently save your digital keystone corrections by activating "3D Reform Memory." To do this:</p> <p style="padding-left:20px;">1. Go to the "Extended Menu" and choose "Projector Options."<br /> 2. Choose "Setup" and go to page 4.<br /> 3. Choose the checkbox "3D Reform Memory" and press OK.</p> <p>Your horizontal, vertical and diagonal 3D reform (keystone) data will now be permanently saved.</p>
The flash memory card or USB drive must be formatted with the FAT16 or FAT file system. (FAT32 and NTFS are not recognized.)
The PC card slot, which is situated on the projector main unit, allows you to make presentations without a PC. Just insert a compact flash or flash memory card containing your stored presentation material and display images directly onto a screen. The projector will display JPEG, BMP, TXT and text-only HTML files.
<p>To present your digital images or stills using an NEC projector you can use the following memory cards:</p> <p style="padding-left:20px;">Compact flash cards (with a Type II PCMCIA CF adapter)<br /> Smart media (with a 4-in-1 Type II adapter)<br /> Memory stick (with a 4-in-1 Type II adapter)<br /> Memory stick pro (with a 4-in-1 Type II adapter)<br /> Multimedia card (with a 4-in-1 Type II adapter)<br /> Secure digital (with a 4-in-1 Type II adapter)</p>
The PC Card Viewer and the Blackboard Function. Projectors equipped with the PC Card Viewer feature are particularly suitable for mobile use since you do not need a notebook or PC to make a presentation. Instead, you can take your presentation along with you stored on a normal PC card or Compact Flash card. Meanwhile, the Blackboard feature allows you to create drawings via the USB mouse and project them onto a screen, facilitating interactive presentations and audience rapport.
Yes. NEC projectors are fitted with inputs for video and S-Video, and meet NTSC, PAL, SECAM, 4.43NTSC and PAL60 standards. You can connect the projector using video, S-video and component (YUV) cables. Please, all projectors are PAL Progressive-enabled (via YUV or RGB). The latest NEC projectors produce virtually no irritating fan noise.
Most projectors use LCD technology. This splits light into the primary colors red, green and blue. Each color is then directed through an LCD display acting as a ‘light valve’ and the light is then reassembled. There is an LCD display for each individual pixel and each primary color. DLP technology involves the use of huge numbers of tiny quadratic mirrors arrayed on a Texas Instruments DMD chip. Only when a mirror is tilted will it reflect the light shining onto it back towards the screen. This very high-frequency switching on and off of points of light is not perceived by the human eye and allows different shades of color to be portrayed. The colors are generated by a color ribbon featuring the primary colors red, green and blue.
It depends on the installation environment. In environments with more ambient light, we recommend choosing DLP. For the greatest flexibility, choose an NEC projector that features both technologies.
Check your projector's installation guide, or use our <a href="/tool/image-calculator/2">Image Calculator</a>.<br /><br /> Keep in mind that distances shown in the Installation Guide or Image Calculator may vary ± 5%. We recommend that you verify the distance before the projector is installed.
As a general rule, the distance between the viewers and the screen should between 1.5 and 6 times the image width.
Your ideal screen will depend on your installation, the size of the room, the amount of ambient light, and other factors. We recommend contacting your installer or a <a href="#">screen vendor</a> for screen recommendations.
Most lamps have an expected life of about 2000 hours.
<p>There are several things you can do to increase your lamp life.</p> <p style="padding-left:20px;">• Always make sure there is adequate clearance near the intake and exhaust vents.<br /> • Keep the environment clean and relatively dust free.<br /> • Clean air filters every 100 hours, or more often if there are a lot of dust or contaminants in the room.<br /> • Striking the lamp ages the lamp as it causes slight changes to the shape of the electrodes that light the lamp, so light up your projector when you're ready to use it and avoid frequent on and off cycles.<br /> • Avoid shock to the lamp or projector. • Use Eco-Mode, if your projector has it. • After you run the projector, leave it plugged in until the fan turns itself off. • Avoid storing the lamp or projector in extreme temperatures or humidity levels. </p>
Certain projector lamps contain mercury. Some states have laws that require projector lamps to be disposed of as a hazardous material if they contain mercury. Check with your audio-visual sales associate or local municipality to find out what the projector lamp disposal laws are for your state. You may also <a href="../../contact-support">contact NEC Technical Support</a> to have your lamp recycled by NEC Display Solutions.
