NEC NP-M300X overview

  • 1Description

The NEC NP-M300X Portable XGA Projector works equally well in the media room, classroom or meeting room. Its 3,000 lumens and 2,000:1 contrast ratio provide a rich, vivid picture in a variety of projection environments.

Its native resolution is XGA (1,024 x 768) but it can also scale images in the VGA, SVGA, WXGA, SXGA, SXGA+ and UXGA resolutions. It can also project video images in the NTSC, NTSC4.43, PAL, PAL-60, PAL-M, PAL-N and SECAM television standards. In addition it can handle both 720p and 1080i high definition programming. And its 100 - 240V AC, 50 / 60 Hz power supply makes is useable just about anywhere in the world.

The NP-M300X has lots of features you can appreciate while you're in the same room with it too. Setup is easy thanks to Keystone Correction which automatically squares up your image while Autosense detects and syncs the projector with most computers. The Virtual Remote Tool software that comes with the projector allows you to control it from your laptop when you connect them with the VGA cable that's included. No other cabling is required. And if you want to leave your laptop behind, the USB Viewer feature allows you to screen program material accessed from a USB drive. You can even project images onto objects like spheres or cylinders or into corners via the Geometric Correction function. The Active Lens Cover acts like a pause shutter in case you want to halt video and audio briefly to illustrate a point. While there's a powerful 10W built-in speaker, there's also a variable audio output for an external speaker in case you need to reach a larger crowd. The NP-M300X's wide connectivity also includes HDMI, a monitor output and USB.

You can also monitor and control the NP-M300X from just about anywhere in the world there's a connection to the Internet. That's because this projector is network ready. Plug it into your LAN via its RJ-45 jack and you can remotely monitor and control it from anywhere on your local network or across the Internet. You can even have it email you when it detects a fault or the projector lamp is nearing the end of its life. Closed Captioning, from program sources that provide it, is ideal for the hearing-impaired or for any noisy environment like gyms, trade shows or conventions. One of the NP-M300X's most important features is its energy efficiency. In ECO mode lamp life shoots up to 6,000 hours while fan noise drops from 34dB to a minimal 27dB.

The NP-M300X actually has a carbon savings meter that can optionally project session and total CO2 emissions saved due to ECO mode use at the beginning and end of each presentation when ECO mode is used. You can turn ECO mode off and on with one button on the remote. Other energy saving features include quick start (three to four seconds) and quick shutdown (which requires no additional cool-down time after the projector is turned off). In addition the projector can turn on automatically when it detects a computer signal and turn off automatically when it detects no signal from any input.

Power, professional features and functionality at a very reasonable price make the NEC NP-M300X hard to beat.

Essential Features for Educational Facilities
  • Plug and Play intuitive setup and operation
  • Bright images easily viewed in any application
  • Versatile, color-coded connections to computer, video sources and external monitor
  • Automatic keystone correction technology instantly projects a square image even when the projector is set up at a steep offset angle to the screen
  • Autosense intuitively syncs the projector with most computer signals and features one-touch image optimization
  • One-touch source changes and complete menu control using the intuitive projector keypad
  • Powerful 10W speaker provides volume needed for large rooms
  • Remarkable contrast ratio (2,000:1) enhances your image
  • Virtual Remote
    Virtual Remote (DDC / CI) over the VGA cable to control the projector directly from a computer without the need for additional control cables
    Top Cover Lamp Change
    Top cover lamp change provides for easy lamp changes without removal of the projector from the mount
    Wall Color Correction
    Built-in wall color correction presets provide for adaptive color tone correction to display properly on non-white surfaces
    Designed with the Environment In Mind
  • Extended lamp life with ECO mode technology increases lamp life up to 6,000 hours, while lowering power consumption
  • Power Management enables projector to automatically turn off when an incoming signal is not detected from any of the inputs
  • Auto Power On via the RGB (15-pin) input connector when a signal is detected from a computer
  • 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 start (3 to 4 seconds) lets you begin presenting in seconds while quick shutdown (immediate power off with no cooling required after shutdown) ensures efficient energy usage
  • Sleep timer can be set to automatically turn off the projector at set countdown times
  • Low power consumption (0.2W in stand-by mode) minimizes energy costs
  • 6,000 Hour Filter Life
    NEC is committed to designing its products to provide long lifecycles. This commitment even extends to components within its products, including the improved filter. This virtually maintenance-free filter reduces the frequency at which cleaning is required, thereby decreasing your total cost of ownership
    Active Lens Cover
    This 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
    Geometric Correction
    Projecting an image isn't confined to a standard flat screen or wall with the NEC Portable Series. Geometric correction allows these models to project an image on spheres, cylinders, corner angles and many more non-standard surfaces
    DICOM Simulation enables users in medical environments to display accurate diagnostic images
    Enhanced keystone correction allows for horizontal, vertical and diagonal image correction for aligned images even when the projector is set up at an angle to the screen
    Get Connected with a Wide Selection of Inputs
  • Dual computer inputs ensure quick switching between presentations
  • Four audio inputs (two mini stereo, R / L and HDMI) make it easy to add sound to enhance your presentations
  • HDMI with HDCP for connecting to high definition sources such as Blu-ray players, cable boxes, satellite receivers and personal computers
  • Connect your laptop or PC directly to the projector using the USB port and a standard USB cable
  • USB Viewer
    In instances when you'd prefer to leave your laptop behind for a presentation, Portable Series projectors can deliver a solution. Using the presentation conversion software included with your projector, simply place your file onto a USB drive and plug it into the projector's USB port. This allows you to display images stored as JPEGs from optional USB memory
    10W Speaker with Variable Audio Out
    A powerful 10W speaker provides volume needed for large rooms. But if it's not enough, variable audio out enables you use the remote to adjust the volume of self-powered external speakers that are connected to the projector. In stand-by mode, the audio out stays active, allowing the last input used to pass to the self-powered external speakers
    Remote Control
    Easy control from remote allows you to adjust lamp mode, aspect ratio, volume and image all with the touch of a button
    Advanced Networking Capabilities
  • Integrated RJ-45 connection for quick connection to the LAN (10 / 100 base-T capability)
  • Remote diagnostics enable the user to monitor and make adjustments to the projector remotely
  • PC CTL 4.0 controls the power switching input selection and other functions while managing lamp usage and a variety of other vital information over the network. Email notification and projector scheduling for better asset management are included with the software.
  • Unique Features
  • Advanced AccuBlend ensures detailed images when non-native resolution sources are connected to the projector
  • 64-step image magnification with location control
  • Countdown sleep timer can be set to automatically turn off the projector
  • Direct Power-off provides instantaneous shutdown of projector
  • Compatible with World Video and Power Standards
    The NP-M300X can handle NTSC at Standard (480i) and Enhanced (480p) resolutions and it can handle HDTV (720p, 1080i) resolutions too. It can also accept PAL, PAL60, PAL-N, PAL-M and SECAM signals. And its 100 - 240 V AC 50 / 60 Hz power supply will work in most countries the world over.
