Functions and Features

High brightness projection with Easy Stacking Function

The Easy Stacking FunctionThe Easy Stacking function maximize the brightness upto four projectors aligned vertically or horizontally. Brightness with four NP3250 projectors will be 5000 ANSI lumens × 4 units. In other words, high brightness equivalent to about 20000 lumens at maximum can be achieved. Since multiple projectors project images, it is possible to arrange the projectors so that the images on the screen will not be disrupted even if the power of either one of the projectors is turned off or anybody or anything obstructs the front of one of the projectors displaying images. Although it used to take time to set up a stack installation with ordinary projectors, a stack configuration with this projector is easy because of the Geometric Correction Tool built into the projector, the camera for the adjustment, and the newly developed dedicated software when installing the projector. The stack function requires that you download the Stacking Correction Tool utility software for installation on your PC, and then connect the supporting camera to the PC through the USB connector. Since the adjustment data will be stored in the projector, the PC and the camera are no longer required after initial setup.
The tool is free of charge and available from mid-August, 2009.

• Create correction data by fetching a test pattern projected by the projector successively with the camera.
* When installing multiple projectors side by side, be sure that the exhaust port of the projector and the air intake of the other one are kept away from each other.

Support for Windows Media Connect and Shared Folder

Files of still pictures and video images stored on a PC connected to the LAN or a server can be played back directly with the projector via the network. For the Shared Folder, video image files can be played back directly with the viewer of the projector even if Windows Media Player is not installed on the PC. Since the projector reads files on the PC or the server directly, it is not necessary to use any media, such as USB memory devices, reducing the risk of information leakage. Since the existing network environment can be used as is, it is also not necessary to provide a new environment.

Playable file formats : Windows Media Connect : JPEG, MPEG-2, WMV Shared Folder : JPEG, BMP, GIF, PNG, MPEG-2, WMV

Networkable projectors supporting Windows Vista

The projectors support "Windows Network Projector" function, which is one of the brand-new features introduced with Windows Vista. You can make presentations from your PC via the network without connecting RGB cable, if your PC is running Windows Vista. You don't need to install any proprietary software application on your PC. Like using a networked printer, you can simply select which projector to use from the list presented on your PC screen. Furthermore, it is possible to remotely operate a PC installed some distance away from the projector via the network by using “Windows Remote Desktop” function.

  • Windows Network Projector
  • Windows Remote Desktop
  • Windows Network Projector Windows Remote Desktop
    A PC connected to LAN automatically detects projectors on the network.

    *The network projector function is not available with Windows Vista Home Basic. The remote desktop function is not available with Windows Vista Home Basic and Windows Vista (32-bit version) Home Premium.
    When you connect a USB mouse and keyboard to the projector, you can remotely operate your PC via the network.

    *Use a commercially available USB mouse and USB keyboard (US layout version). We do not warrant that the USB port of the projector will support all USB mouse and USB keyboards in the market.

    The projector supports wired/wireless LAN

    Optional Wireless LAN unitBy connecting a LAN cable to the LAN port (RJ-45) on the projector or installing the wireless LAN unit on the projector, it is possible to transfer screen images from the PC to the projector more quickly (2 to 3 times faster than conventional models from NEC) for on-screen presentation using Image Express Utility 2.0 software (Windows XP/2000 are available). This projector can change presenters with a single operation. The person who wants to speak can send images from his/her PC to the projector just by clicking the "Become a Presenter" button. Furthermore, for a presentation in a large conference room, participants can confirm details of the projected images, such as small characters, etc., with their own PCs. A presenter can distribute files or documents used in the presentation through the network. And it is possible to turn the power of the projector on and off and switch input signals from a PC via the network.
    Model name of the wireless LAN unit varies depending on the country where the unit is used (or to be used).
    Operation of the USB Wireless LAN Unit is subject to the regulations of the countries listed below, and may be prohibited from using outside the country where you purchased.If you need to use the projector with the unit abroad, remove the USB Wireless LAN Unit from the projector before exporting.

    Manual lens shift for simple adjustment of projected images on screen and Keystone correction

    With the manual lens shift mechanism, the position of projected images on screen can be adjusted in both the vertical and horizontal directions without moving the main unit. Furthermore, Keystone correction corrects distortions in the vertical and horizontal directions up to a maximum +/- 40 degrees in the horizontal direction and a maximum +/- 30 degrees in the vertical direction. Keystone correction can be operated by remote control.

    * Shifting the lens to the maximum in two directions combined will cause the edges of the image to become dark or will cause some shadows.
    * The Lens Shift function is not available for the NP01FL.
