NEC M311X overview

  • 1Description

The NEC NP-M311X Digital Projector packs great deal of features in its highly portable 6.4 lb white housing. It boasts an impressive 3,100 lumens of brightness so you won't have to turn out the lights during a presentation. But if you do, you'll see the full effect of its 3,000:1 contrast and crisp XGA 1024 x 768 resolution.

But we've only begun to scratch the surface. Looking under the hood you'll wide array of technologies that will satisfy the needs of educators, business people or home theater enthusiasts that want a projector bursting with convenience features.

The attributes of the NP-M311X are apparent right out of the box when setting up. Color-coded connections facilitate hookup to your components while AutoSense syncs with your computer's signal. Auto Power On fires up the projector once the signal is acquired. Quick Start allows you to begin presenting in 3 to 4 seconds and affects a quick shutdown when you're through without requiring cool down time. Built-in software contains wall color correction presets so that your programming looks natural even when projected on colored surfaces. There's even a DICOM Simulation function that allows those in the medical field to display accurate X-Ray images. 654 Step Image Magnification lets you zoom in on details to illustrate key points during presentation.

The NP-M311X is all about ease of use through a network connection. An RJ-45 connection allows quick access to institution-wide information and permits remote users to monitor and adjust settings. The connection also facilitates email notification and maintenance scheduling. Add and optional LAN module and you can even send images via an iPad or standard computer sources while Image Express Lite facilitates data transmission.

The NP-M311X provides wide compatibility and connectivity with your data sources. As you might expect from a projector of this caliber, HDMI, Component and multiple audio inputs are all on board, as is an RS-232 connection for external control. But there's also a USB input for computer-less presentations from a thumbdrive or memory stick as well as a variable audio level output that allows you to adjust the volume of optional external speakers when the built-in 10W speaker is not enough.

Finally, this is a projector you can feel good about using. Designed with the environment in mind, the NP-M311X's ECO mode not only increases lamp life to up to 10,000 hours and extends time between filter changes to 5,000 hours, but it also reduces power draw and saves you time and money in maintenance. There's even a carbon savings meter that displays the positive effects of using your NP-M311X.
