Functions and Features

TCO eco-certificate

TCO eco-certificate

TCO Certified makes it easy to choose a projector that gives the best possible image quality for your needs and at the same time has minimal environmental impacts.
A new measurement called "TCO Image Size" specifies the maximum projected size for excellent image quality.
NEC U300X, U250X, U310W and U260W are the projectors worldwide to be awarded the TCO Certification.

For more details about TCO Certified Projectors:

An easy-to-use, envionmentally friendly design.

Short focal projection is the optimum method for classrooms or small meeting areas


The use of newly-developed aspheric mirrors enables the U300X and U250X to project a large screen of 85 inches at a distance of only 66cm. The U310W and U260W can project a widescreen size of 100 inches at a distance of 66cm.
Shadows are not easily formed even when someone stands in front of the projector, making it suitable for classrooms, small meeting areas, show windows at shops, and a wide variety of other locations.

Throw Distance and Screen Size

A new design based on user needs

A blue LED is now used for the power lamp, enabling the ON/OFF status to be understood at a glance.

The design has been updated to facilitate setting and operation. A blue LED is now used for the power lamp, enabling the ON/OFF status to be understood at a glance.

Energy-saving design with a power consumption of 0.5 watts during standby

When the standby mode in the on-screen menu is set to "Power-Saving", the power consumption during standby is 0.5 watts.

A high-performance optional filter is available to strengthen the anti-dust function

Optional ceiling mount kit available

In addition to a ceiling mount kit, a wall mount kit is also available, allowing a wider range of setup environments.

Equipped with functions for facilitating setup, and a wide range of input/output terminals

Virtual Remote Function

Download the Virtual Remote Tool utility software to turn the power on/off or switch the projector input from your PC via the supplied VGA signal cable.
To perform the same operation via LAN, download "PC Control Utility Pro 4". See our website. (

A complete lineup of eco functions

Direct Power On automatically switches on the power when the power cord is connected.

Security function

By using passwords, the projector cannot be used by unauthorised persons. It is impossible to project an image unless the proper password is entered. Since the main unit has a security chain opening, unauthorised removal of the projector is prevented by inserting the security cable or wire commercially available into the opening.

Multiple input/output terminals

The projector is equipped with a wide range of input and output terminals, including a computer input, video input terminal, S-Video input terminal, LAN port, monitor output terminal, and an HDMI terminal for projecting high-quality digital images.

Many more enhanced functions

Built-in monaural speaker with a powerful 10W output

The 10W monaural speaker is built in to provide audiovisual conditions with high image and audio qualities.

Wall Colour Correction for vivid images even without a screen.

Vertical Keystone Correction +/-15 degrees

Wired LAN Connectivity

Supports use in high altitudes when Fan Mode is set to high

Project 3D images with a single projector

  • *To view 3D images, DLP LINK-style 3D glasses are required.
