The NEC NP-M300WS LCD Widescreen Ultra Short Throw Projector packs a great deal of desirable features into a small package that would be at home in the classroom, boardroom and media room or on the road.

The widescreen, value-driven and eco-friendly portable projector's defining feature is its short throw capabilities and it's in tight quarters or constricted spaces that this projector really shines. That means you can position the projector in the front of the room on a simple surface without the interference with the light beam by audience members, which is so common with longer-throw units.

The NP-M300WS features brilliant color rendition with a crackling 3000 ANSI lumens, WXGA resolution and a crisp 2000:1 contrast ratio. With advanced connectivity, including HDMI and USB inputs, and wired and wireless (optional) networking options, the NP-M300WS benefits users requiring maintenance-free design and environmentally conscious features. Finally, the low fan noise (36 dB normal / 30 dB eco) means that it will seen and not heard whether rear projected, ceiling or table mounted.
