New Generation of M Series Short-Throw Projectors from NEC Display Solutions

Schools, Businesses Benefit from Projectors’ ‘Bring Your Own Device’ Approach

CHICAGO--NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today a new generation of M Series short-throw projectors that foster deep collaboration among users.


Using the latest DLP technology from Texas Instruments, the 3,300-lumen M333XS and 3,500-lumen M353WS models deliver high contrast images (10,000:1), are filter free, and have 0.6:1 and 0.48:1 throw ratios, respectively.

Environmentally-friendly features include ECO Mode with ambient light sensor, which increases lamp life up to 8,000 hours, while lowering power consumption, as well as quick start (3 to 4 seconds) and auto power on via the RGB input connector. A carbon savings meter calculates the positive effects of operating the projectors in ECO Mode.

Advanced software lets K-12, higher education and business users network their projectors for easier management and control. The Image Express Utility Lite function allows up to 16 devices - from PCs, tablets and smart phones - to be wirelessly connected to each projector concurrently. Thumbnail images give presenters easy visibility to each participating device so they can easily toggle between sources.

The projectors also include NEC DisplayNote Software, an app that lets leaders and participants present, share and annotate content from any platform or device so their notes are automatically saved. Additional DisplayNote licenses are available for purchase.

"The M Series projectors subscribe to a ‘bring your own device' philosophy with their wireless capabilities, and let educators and business professionals determine what sources to display on-screen in an instant," said Bob Guentner, Senior Product Manager of projectors for NEC Display Solutions. "The projectors' superb color accuracy and high contrast ratios enable viewers to see a high degree of detail, even in rooms with higher ambient light."

The M333XS and M353WS projectors include the following features:

* XGA and WXGA native resolutions, respectively
* DLP engine, featuring BrilliantColor Technology
* HDMI 3D display up to 144Hz
* DICOM display mode
* Dual HDMI inputs to connect to multiple external devices
* Automatic keystone correction technology, which instantly projects a square image even when the projector is set up at a steep offset angle to the screen
* Sealed optics engine
* Powerful 20-watt speaker
* Microphone input
* Low power consumption (0.2W in stand-by mode), which minimizes energy costs
* Optional interactive camera module (NP03Wi) and wireless dongle (NP05LM1)

The M333XS and M353WS ship with a two-year limited parts and labor warranty, and will be available in September 2015 at their minimum advertised prices of $959 and $1,069, respectively. The warranty on the lamp is for 500 hours or 1 year, whichever comes first.
