Ideal centrepiece of modern education and meeting areas
Multipurpose short throw projector
Enjoy great performance and flexibility with the M series which includes advanced networking features without compromising on quality.
Functions and Features
Short Throw Projection Optimal for Classrooms and Meeting Areas
Thanks to the high quality short throw lens, the M353WS and M303WS can project large 80-inch images from a short range of 77 cm. The projector takes little space and is easy to set up.
Impressive Image Quality for Various Applications
The latest Texas Instruments DLP™ engine featuring BrilliantColor™ technology offers great 10,000:1 contrast for high brightness images up to 3,500 lumens at WXGA native resolutions.
Advanced ECO Modes
You can select a suitable ECO setting form [AUTO ECO], [NORMAL] and [ECO] including [ROOM LIGHT SENSING], [CONSTANT BRIGHTNESS] and [AUTO-DIM] depending on your application. This advanced ECO setting allows you to decrease the power consumption and to prolong the lamp life up to 8,000 hours by controlling the lamp brightness.
Shielded Optical Structure and Filterless Design
The filter-free design and shielded engine eliminate the hassle and time spent monitoring and/or changing filters.
Get Connected with a Wide Selection of Inputs and Outputs
USB Display Function
Using a commercially available USB cable (compatible with USB 2.0 specifications) to connect a computer with the projector allows you to send your computer screen image and sound to the projector without needing traditional computer display cables.
M series projectors can deliver a solution when you would prefer to leave your laptop computer behind for a presentation. 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 storage.
Dual HDMI Inputs
Among the M series wide selection of inputs is an HDMI w/HDCP for connecting to high-definition sources such as Blu-ray players, cable boxes, satellite receivers and personal computers.
Connecting a commercially available dynamic or condenser microphone to the MIC input jack allows you to output your mic input from the built-in speaker.
This function enables the remote control to be used to adjust volume of self-powered external speakers that are connected to the projector. In network stand-by or sleep mode, the audio-out stays active, allowing the last input used to pass to the self-powered external speakers.
Advanced Networking Capabilities
Multi-screen Projection Function*
The multi-screen projection function allows you to share screens from multiple devices on various split-screen displays. Display information from up to 16 PCs, tablet PCs, smart phones, and other network connected devices on a multi-screen display of up to 16 screens. Easily share screens and information regardless of device or operating system.
- *Requires an optional wireless LAN module for wireless connection.
PCs require the installation of the Image Express Utility Lite software on the included CD-ROM. Smart phones and tablets require the download and installation of our Wireless Image Utility software.
