Functions and Features

TCO eco-certificate

TCO eco-certificateTCO 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 NP216 is the projecter to be awarded the TCO Certification.

TCO Certified Models

For more details about TCO Certified Projectors:

Project 3D images with a single projector

Project 3D content like DVDs, video games, and computer video files with a single projector. Enjoy 3D images without any special setup adjustment.
* To view 3D images, DLP LINK-style 3D glasses are required.

Low power consumption in power-saving mode

Power consumption in power-saving mode is 0.49W (100-130V AC) / 0.71W (200-240V AC). These enhancements help to dramatically reduce the TCO (total cost of ownership).

Carbon meter for visualizing ecology

Carbon meterThe projector employs the Carbon Meter indicating the reduced amount of CO2 emissions in Eco Mode. Visually confirm the numerical value indicating the reduction in CO2 emissions in comparison with Eco Mode Off operation.

Quick power off & Direct power off

The Quick Power Off function stops the cooling fan immediately after turning off the power to the projector, which makes it possible to remove the projector quickly. For a rapid shut down, the projector can be turned off without powering off the projector using the Direct Power Off function and a power strip equipped with a switch and breaker.
