Functions and Features

Outstanding Picture Quality with High Resolution and Advanced Laser Technology

High Resolution and High Brightness

This projector realises projection of images in a resolution 3,840 × 2,160 pixels (4K UHD), an aspect ratio of 16:9, and a brightness of 10,000 lumens and achieves outstanding picture quality with resolution enhancement by pixel shift technology – a whole new visualisation experience with high brightness, up to a 4K input signal and unique picture and colour processing technology based on the latest NEC scaler chip and DMD.

Dustproof Design Supported by Closed-loop Cooling

This 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.

Light Source - No More Lamp Replacements

Light Source - No More Lamp Replacements

Up to 20,000 hours* of maintenance-free operation is possible due to the laser light source while enjoying a Lower TCO. This projector has the ability to control brightness, creating a stable image over longer time periods.

* Actual hours may vary depending on usage conditions.

High Quality Image with Fantastic Cinema Quality Picture

High Quality Pictures Using Cinema Quality Picture Technology

High Quality Pictures Using Cinema Quality Picture Technology

The device displays high-resolution pictures with its rich gradation expression capability with 10-bit signal processing and improves the contrast in the picture boundary area using developmental technology for digital cinema projectors and NEC’s unique video processor for image processing.

Enable Image Flexibility with Multi-Source Input and Multi-Screen Function

Multi-Display Multi-Source Input

Multi-display capabilities are integrated. This projector can display dual and quad images of picture by picture with 3G-SDI and other input terminals. This feature enables to set [QUAD], [DUAL] and [Single] settings to display flexible images of 2K signal with various interfaces.

Multi-Display Multi-Source Input

Multi-screen Projection and Edge Blending Function

Multi-screen Projection and Edge Blending Function

This function seamlessly blends multiple projected images to display a single high-resolution image.

Advanced Installation Capabilities

Geometric Correction

Projection is not confined to a standard flat screen or wall. Geometric correction allows this model to project an image on spheres, cylinders, corner angles and many more non-standard surfaces.

Geometric Correction

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.

Highly Flexible Installation Options with 360 ° Positioning in any Direction

Stacking Correction

This feature allows the projectors to boost an image’s brightness up to 20,000 lumens, which is ideal for larger-sized screens and environments with heavy ambient light. This feature also prevents the complete loss of an image, which can happen when using only one projector.

Easy Installation

Eight types of optional lenses, including an ultra short throw lens are available with motorised zoom/focus and a memory function. A selection of wide zoom lenses with wide vertical and horizontal lens shift (+50%/–30% of vertically and +20%/–10% of horizontally) is available. In addition, the lenses can be mounted and removed in one touch, which allows for quick and easy lens exchange.

  • *1:Effective pixels are more than 99.99%.
  • *2:Refer to Lens Specifications
  • *3:Time at which the laser light source is at half brightness; not a guarantee time.
  • *4:This is the light output value (lumens) mounting the lens unit, NP18ZL-4K, when the [PRESET] mode is set to [HIGH-BRIGHT].
    The light output values will be dropped according to the setting of [LIGHT MODE].
    If any other mode is selected as the [PRESET] mode, the light output value may drop slightly.
  • *5:Compliance with ISO21118-2012
  • *6:If you are unable to view material via the HDMI, DisplayPort and HDBaseT input, this does not necessarily mean the projector is not functioning properly. With the implementation of HDCP, there may be cases in which certain content is protected with HDCP and might not be displayed due to the decision/intention of the HDCP community. (Digital Content Protection, LLC).
  • *7:Depending on the altitude and temperature, the projector goes into “Forced ECO Mode” in the state [NORMAL] or [ECO1] has been selected for [LIGHT MODE].
  • *8:Internal measured value. All wired network ports are connected and active.
