The NEC NP-M300XS XGA LCD Short Throw Projector is a versatile projector with a short throw lens. A short throw lens, simply put, can project a larger picture at a shorter distance from the screen than a conventional lens can.
Short throw projectors are ideal for smaller conference rooms, classrooms and living rooms. But with 3000 ANSI lumens of brightness at a 2000:1 contrast ratio you can be sure the NP-M300XS works in larger rooms too. Short throw lenses are often used in rear projection setups where space behind the screen is at a premium.
But the NP-M300XS can do a lot more than make big pictures in tight spaces. For one thing, it can make them all over the world. It's got an international 100 - 240 volt 50/60 Hz power supply and it can project video in the NTSC, PAL and SECAM standards.
If the projector's 10W speaker isn't loud enough for you or you just want to listen to your program in stereo, you can hook up (optional) external powered speakers to the NP-M300XS's variable audio out jack and control their volume with the projector's remote control.
Speaking of remote control, you can plug your NP-M300XS into your LAN via its RJ45 jack and set it up for remote monitoring and management in just a few minutes.
We're not sure if the projector's eco-mode is short for ecological or economical because it helps save the environment while it saves you money. Eco-Mode allows for a lower power setting at a 30% reduction in brightness. Lamp power draw drops from 230W to 170W while life is extended by 25 percent from 4000 hours to 5000 hours. In addition, while in Eco standby mode, the projector is designed to consume only 0.2W of power. Optionally, you can even display carbon savings on the startup screen.
