PE455UL / PE455WL / PE505XL
A high-quality filter-free LCD laser-phosphor projector with excellent quietness
Enjoy peace of mind with high dustproof performance and broad connectivity, whilist enjoying impressive images and quietness.
Functions and Features
Versatile, maintenance-free, entry-level installation projectors with excellent quietness
Filter-free Structure with NEC’s Original Cooling System
High dustproof performance is achieved by NEC's proprietary sealed jet impingement cooling structure. Due to its excellent dustproof performance, this projector does not have the cumbersome filters that ordinary LCD projectors require. The new laser-based LCD projector offers better TCO (total cost of ownership) with less maintenance.
Super Silent Design Utilising a Sealed Structure
The unique cooling system not only improves the dustproof performance but also reduces the noise of the fan. This quiet design achieves excellent quietness of 22 dB in ECO mode. Even in a very quiet meeting room or classroom, the presence of the projector is not felt.
A Long-life Laser Diode is Provided in the Light Module
Advanced laser technology delivers a reliable light source up to 20,000 hours.
Maintains the Set Brightness for a Long Time
The projector is equipped with a “constant brightness mode” that detects changes in brightness due to aging and automatically adjusts the output to keep the brightness constant. This makes it possible to project with stable brightness for a long time.
Self Colour Correction
This function compensates for the natural colour shift that occurs with age and adjusts to natural and suitable colours automatically according to the number of hours used.
Advanced Installation Functions and Connectivity
Lens shift provides greater flexibility when determining the installation location.
The projector can be rotated freely (360°) to orient the image depending on the installation requirements.
Allows the projector to be rotated (and 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.
Dual HDMI Inputs
The wide selection of inputs includes HDMI with HDCP for connecting to high-definition sources such as Blu-ray players, cable boxes, satellite receivers and personal computers.
Support for 4K Input
The built-in HDMI input terminal supports up to 4K video for display of ultrahigh resolution video.
Advanced Networking Capabilities
This projector is compatible with the NEC MultiPresenter application, so multi-screen projection is possible via the network (wired LAN / wireless LAN). Ideal for effortlessly sharing content in corporate meeting rooms or classrooms
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.
Other Useful Functions and Features
16 Watt Built-in Speaker
The powerful 16-watt speaker provides sufficient volume in classrooms and meeting rooms.
Seamless Switching Function for Smoother Image Change
When the input signal is switched, the image displayed before switching is retained so that the new image can be displayed without a break.
