Projector P525UL / P525WL

NaViSet MultiPresenter HDBaseT HDMI

Projector P525UL / P525WL

  • *Measured at centre area of projector screen

Excellent-quality images from a compact LCD laser-based projector with easy, quiet running and low-maintenance operation for education and corporate use

Functions and Features

High Brightness of 5,000 lm (5,200 centre lm)* LCD Laser Projector with 4K Input Support

  • *Measured at centre area of projector screen

High Resolution and High Quality Picture of WUXGA (1,920×1,200)*

This projector can maintain stable picture quality through NEC’s original light source architecture and achieve high contrast of 500,000:1. * P525UL

Filter-free Structure with NEC’s Original Circulation System

Filter-free Structure with NEC’s Original Circulation System

The proprietary sealed structure achieves highly dust-proof performance. We provided effective cooling by adding NEC’s unique jet impingement cooling method. Due to its excellent dust-proof performance, the projector is not equipped with a filter. Filter replacement is therefore unnecessary. Our new laser-based LCD projector takes low-maintenance operation to a new level. No required filter-cleaning means a better TCO.

Support for 4K Input

This is the first NEC projector in the 5,000 lumens class to support 4K at 30 Hz signal input (Supports: HDMI1, HDMI2 and HDBaseT).

A Long-life Laser Diode is Provided in the Light Module

The product can be operated at low cost because the laser light source can be used for a long time (20,000 hours) without requiring replacement or maintenance. (ECO MODE [OFF])

Self Colour Correction

According as used hours to compensate for a natural colour shift that occurs with age and adjust to natural and suitable colour automatically.

Multiple Input Terminals for HDMI and HDBaseT

Wide Range of Input Terminals (HDMI×2, HDBaseT, etc.)

The projector is equipped with a variety of input terminals: HDMI (× 2), computer (analogue), HDBaseT, etc. The HDMI input terminals on this product support HDCP.


Built-in HDBaseT Support

Simplify your installations with HDBaseT, which is optimised for video applications and supports uncompressed full HD digital video, audio, Ethernet, power and control signals.


Promote Ecology & Quietness and Reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

Brightness can be Adjusted Over a Wide Range

NEC’s unique optical layout delivers high reliability and responsiveness. Unlike with ordinary light sources, the brightness can be adjusted from 30 to 100% in 1% increments. Brightness normally decreases with use, but by selecting constant brightness mode, the projector automatically controls the output from the light module according to the light module usage time to maintain constant brightness.

Energy-saving Design for Low Power Consumption

This projector achieves a big reduction in power consumption. A new light-source optical system results in a highly efficient optical system. The projector is equipped with a “LIGHT MODE” to reduce power consumption during use. Furthermore, when the [ECO OFF], [ECO] or [ LONG LIFE] option is on, the power-saving effect is converted into the amount of reduction of CO2 emissions, and this amount is listed in the confirmation message displayed when the power is turned off and under [ INFORMATION] on the on-screen menu (Carbon Meter).

Menu Voltage Wattage
ECO MODE [OFF] 100 − 130 V AC 330 W
200 − 240 V AC 320 W
ECO MODE [ECO] 100 − 130 V AC 240 W
200 − 240 V AC 238 W
STANDBY MODE [NORMAL] 100 − 130 V AC 0.13 W
200 − 240 V AC 0.19 W
200 − 240 V AC 0.16 W

Silent Design Utilizing a Sealed Structure

The silent design provided excellent quietness of 24 dB in ECO MODE [OFF] and 22 dB in ECO MODE [ECO] even in a quiet conference room or classroom because there is no irritating fan noise. The circulating cooling system not only improves dustproofing but also reduces fan noise for the LCD panel.

Advanced Networking Capabilities

Easily Connect with Smart Devices by Installing the MultiPresenter Receiver Function

This projector is compatible with the NEC MultiPresenter application, so multi-screen projection is possible via the network (wired LAN / wireless LAN). The design of the menu of the “Intelligent connection” operation screen is improved, and the customer can change the wall-paper of stand-by screen. The customer can set various settings of network function on this menu.

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.

Multi-screen Projection Function

Compatible OS


  • *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.

Simultaneous Display of two Images (PIP = Picture-in-picture)

With this projector, it is possible to project two images with a single projector by displaying a small sub-display within the main display. The sub-display display position can be changed and the main display and sub-display images can be swapped. Furthermore, this projector can provide a new function that can project the input signal of the MultiPresenter and other input signals at the same time by using the PIP function.


Select the display position of the sub-screen from 4 locations.




The videos in the main display and sub-display will be switched.



Main Display HDMI 1   No No Yes No No
HDMI 2 No   No Yes No No
HDBaseT No No   Yes No No
COMPUTER Yes Yes Yes   No No
LAN Yes Yes Yes Yes   No
USB-A No No No No No  

The main display and sub-display can provide the following input terminals.

Preeminent Functions and Features

Highly Flexible Installation Options with 360 ° Positioning in any Direction

Highly Flexible Installation Options with 360 ° Positioning in any Direction

This projector can be installed universally at any angle. Tilt-free, roll-free and portrait installations are supported. The projector can be rotated freely (360°) to point up or down depending on the installation requirements and can be rotated and installed on its side to create a portrait image.

Seamless Switch Function for Smoother Screen Changes when Switching the Signal

When the input source is switched, the image displayed before switching is held so that that the new image can be switched to without a break due to absence of a signal.

20 W Built-in Speaker

The powerful 20 watt speaker provides the volume need for large rooms.
