Functions and Features

Settings for Greater Ease-of-Use

Easy Connection

Easily connect your projector to PCs, tablets, smart phones or other smart devices equipped with MultiPresenter application software by inputting a PIN code.

Interfaces for Various Functions

The projector is equipped with 2 HDMI inputs for projecting digital images in high quality, as well as a wired/wireless (option*) LAN port. * Make sure to choose the appropriate wireless LAN unit for the usage country or area according to the following list.

NP05LM2 Thailand, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Philippines
NP05LM4 Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka
NP05LM5 Taiwan, Indonesia, Pakistan

You can project computer images via USB cable instead of VGA cable. In this case, you can control your PC mouse via the projector’s remote control.

The projector also has a viewer function that lets you project data (JPEG) stored on USB memory, so you can give presentations without a computer.

Terminals

Easy Configuration of Other Smart Devices by Convenient Utility Software (NaViSet Administrator 2, Virtual Remote Tool, etc.)

NaViSet Administrator 2

Virtual Remote lets you use your computer to switch the power of the projector
on and off and change the input signal.

Various Keystone Corrections

Auto Vertical Keystone Correction
HV Keystone (+/- 30° manual horizontal / +/- 30° manual vertical) / Corner Stone / Pincushion Correction

1.7x Zoom

The projector has a 1.7× zoom to cover a wide projection distance, so you can setup in various locations.

Enhanced Functions for Reduced Power Consumption and TCO

A Complete Lineup of Eco Functions

The projector has an Auto Eco Mode, which automatically adjusts the brightness to suit the projected image, and an Eco Mode, which is convenient when it is too bright for small screen projection. There are Eco buttons on the projector and a remote control so you can more easily enable Eco Mode.

Improved Lamp Lifetime

The time between lamp exchanges has been improved. For Eco Mode Off and Eco Mode, the times are 4,000 and 9,000 hours, respectively.

  • *The low power design cuts energy consumption in standby to 0.23 W (100 – 130 V AC) / 0.45 W (200 – 240 V AC), which helps with TCO reduction.

Carbon Meter

This lets you check the amount of CO₂ you reduced by using Eco Mode.
