NEC Enhances Portable Projectors with new inputs, features and virtually maintenance-free design

NEC M260X Projector

SINGAPORE, 5 October, 2010 – NEC Asia Pacific, one of the leading providers of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today its new Portable Series projectors, including the NP-M230X, NP-M260X and NP-M300X. These models were developed to address the needs of schools and offices on a tight budget that require a bright, network projector with remote monitoring and control capabilities. The model transitions include the NP-M230X replacing the NP310, NP-M260X replacing the NP410 and NP-M300X replacing the NP510.

Designed to keep audiences engaged during presentations, the NEC NP-M230X, NP-M260X and NP-M300X are value-driven, eco-friendly portable projectors ideal for education and small-to-medium-sized business environments. These models deliver remarkably bright images and feature wired and wireless (optional) networking, HDMI and USB inputs, high contrast (2000:1) and up to 6000 hours of lamp life (in ECO Mode). The Portable Series was created with the environment in mind and includes a carbon savings meter, energy-saving features such as Power Save (<1-watt in standby mode), quick startup and direct power off.

Additionally, the projectors offer extended lamp and filter life, benefiting classrooms and boardrooms alike.

"The NP-M230X, NP-M260X and NP-M300X kick off this Portable Series update with a new chassis, a multitude of advanced technologies and broad connectivity all through user’s perspective," said Vincent Koh, Vice President of Multimedia Platform Unit for NEC Asia Pacific. "The total cost of ownership of these projectors is a huge benefit to our customers when you take lamp changes into consideration. The maintenance-free design enables users to change their filter and lamp simultaneously after 6000 hours of use, which is a huge asset to any facility."

The NP-M230X, NP-M260X and NP-M300X include the following features:

  • XGA native resolution
  • Brightness up to 3000 lumens
  • Lamp life up to 6000 hours when operated in ECO Mode
  • 6000-hour filter life provides a virtually maintenance-free projector and lowers the total cost of ownership
  • New cabinet design
  • Ample input connectivity, including HDMI and USB
  • 10-watt mono speaker
  • Variable audio-out to connect the projector to an external speaker and control the volume with the projectors remote control
  • Less than 0.5 watt consumption in power-saving mode
  • DICOM Simulation enables users in medical environments to display accurate diagnostic images
  • Image Express Lite enables the wireless transmission of an image to the projector without the need for external components
  • Wireless LAN Connection IEEE801.11n (optional)
  • Auto vertical keystone correction instantly projects a square image even when the projector is set up at a steep offset angle to the screen
  • USB Viewer allows users to present in seconds by using a flash drive to project jpeg images without a computer source
  • Virtual Remote (DDC/CI) allows users to control the projector directly from a computer without the need for additional control cables
  • Active sliding lens cover enables presenters to immediately mute the audio and video, then seconds later lower the lamp brightness to 25% for a short period of time
  • Closed captioning enables decoding and display of text information from a video source
  • ECO Mode allows for multiple settings dependent upon the brightness required in the application and power savings desired by the user
  • Carbon savings meter calculates the positive effects of operating the projector in ECO Mode, which is encouraged by an optional message at startup
  • “No signal guidance” for easy cable connections

The new Portable Series models will be available in October 2010 at an estimated street price as follows. The projectors ship with a 2-year limited parts and labour warranty.

NP-M230X Projector               S$1,069.00

NP-M260X Projector               S$1,399.00
