Projector P502HL-2 / P502WL-2

DLP Medalion DLP SmartSource 3D

NaViSet MultiPresenter HDBaseT HDMI

Projector P502HL-2 / P502WL-2

The newest laser technology allows up to 20,000 hours maintenance free operation, ensuring high reliability and low cost of ownership.

Functions and Features

No More Lamp Replacements

Up to 20,000 hours* of maintenance-free operation possible due to the laser light source.

  • *Actual hours may vary depending on usage conditions.

Impressive Image Quality for Various Applications

The latest Texas Instruments DLP™ engine featuring BrilliantColor™ technology offers great 15,000:1 contrast for high brightness images up to 5,000 lumens at Full-HD and WXGA native resolutions.

DLP Medalion

Wide 1.7 × Optical Zoom and H/V Lens Shift

The wide 1.7 × optical zoom, horizontal / vertical lens shift and keystone correction allow flexible setting in various locations.

A Dustproof Design Supported by NEC’s Closed-loop Cooling System

A Dustproof Design

The projector has a dustproof design to prevent the staining of optical components from the ingress of dust and the deterioration of brightness and image quality. Heat within the dustproof units is exhausted from heat sinks, and the external air used for cooling does not directly contact the optical system, so the design offers both excellent dustproofing and cooling.

Tilt-free and Portrait Installation Support

Tilt-free and Portrait Installation Support

The projector can be rotated freely (360°) to point up or down depending on the installation requirements and can be rotated (along with the screen if necessary) to a vertical alignment so that portrait content can be viewed without black bars on the sides when landscape mode is used.

Compatible with Diverse Signal Sources

Built-in HDBaseT Support

Simplify your installations with HDBaseT, which is optimized for video applications and supports uncompressed Full HD digital video, audio, Ethernet, and various control signals. With only a single cable (up to 100 m) to run, infrastructure and labor costs are reduced, installations are significantly easier, and there is no cable clutter to manage. With uncompressed HD video support, images have never been more stunning. What is more, control signals are contained in the same cable.


USB Viewer

This series projector 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 P502HL-2 series wide selection of inputs is HDMI with HDCP for connecting to high-definition sources such as Blu-ray players, cable boxes, satellite receivers and personal computers.


Advanced Networking Capabilities

Multi-screen Projection Function*1

The multi-screen projection function allows for the sharing of screens of multiple devices on various split-screen displays via a wireless or wired LAN. Display information from up to 50*2 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.

  • *1:Requires the optional wireless LAN module for wireless connection.
    PCs, Smart phones and tablets require the download and installation of our MultiPresenter software.
  • *2:The connection of 50 devices to the network requires construction of a wireless LAN environment, such as the use of a separate access point.

Multi-screen Projection Function


Web sharing function

Without the need for exclusive software, it enables you to share images and files between the projector and computers in the same network by accessing the web server of the projector utilizing the web browser.
