    • NP4100W achieves 5500 ANSI lumens
  • Extended lamp life
    • Lamp ECO mode serves 3000 hours
  • Ecologic adaptation
    • Power consumption in Standby Mode is 1W

Functions and Features

Dual lamp system provides high brightness of 6200 ANSI lumens.
Continuous use is also possible when using a single lamp mode.

Image of Dual Lamp SystemBy employing a dual lamp system, high brightness of 6200 ANSI lumens has been achieved *¹. This is sufficient when high brightness is required in large venues. Furthermore, in the Single lamp mode, since the projector can be operated continuously by using the automatic lamp switching function, it is suitable for monitoring purposes. Lamp Eco mode is available in both the dual lamp and single lamp modes for extending the service life of the lamp *². The lamp service life has been extended to 3000 hours from 2500 hours in the NP4000/NP4001, so that it is possible to continuously operate the projector for more hours.

*1: For the NP4100. The brightness of the NP4100W is 5500 lumens.
*2: When the lamp mode is set to ECO mode, the brightness will be reduced to about 80%.
*3: The illustration is an image of the dual lamp system, which may differ from the actual product.

Ecological operation with power consumption of 1 W in standby mode

If the standby mode is set to Power Saving while the projector is in the standby state, the power consumption in standby mode becomes 1 W (5 W in the NP4000/NP4001). Since the projector can stay in the standby state with little power consumption, it is still possible to ecologically operate the projector when mounted on the ceiling even if it is difficult to turn off the main power.

* The projector in power saving mode can be started with the power button on the projector, the wireless remote controller, or GPIO (an external controller) only.

WXGA chip for wide-format images (NP4100W)

Since the NP4100W has a WXGA (1280 X 800) panel with an aspect ratio of 16:10, it is capable of handling WXGA resolution and wide video images such as DVDs.

* The existing NP4001 has a WXGA (1280 X 768) panel with an aspect ratio of 15:9.

Tilt Free expansion possibility for installation environments

Tilt FreeTilt Free makes it possible to install the projector inclined up to 90 degrees in the vertical direction. With this function it is possible to install the projector with an acute angle or mirror reflection for use in a broader range of installation environments such as a display in a commercial facility or special event.

Supporting the optional remote controller NP02RC to which the control ID can be registered

NP02RCWhen multiple projectors are used simultaneously, the same quantity of remote controllers may be required. On the other hand, NP02RC can manipulate multiple NP4100/NP4100W projectors independently by setting separate ID numbers.
It is also possible to control the multiple projectors collectively by setting the same ID number.

The power can be controlled intensively with Auto Start and Direct Power Off

The NP4100/NP4100W start projecting images automatically when AC power is supplied and you can turn off the power source with a switch or a circuit breaker while projecting images or running the fan. With these functions, it is possible to completely control the power supply to the projector with the power distribution board.

A contrast ratio of 2100:1 is achieved using DynamicBlack™ and the DLP technology

DLPWith the introduction of DynamicBlack™ the projector delivers high contrast ratio of 2100:1 for superior image display capability, particularly to express the vivid details in dark images.

* DynamicBlack™ works only in Dual Lamp Mode.

Two types of Replaceable Colour Wheel and BrilliantColor project vivid images

Colour wheel illustrationThe NP4100/NP4100W have a six-segment colour wheel, in addition to the standard four-segment colour wheel - and the colour wheels can be changed by the customer. The BrilliantColor results in superior reproducibility of neutral tints for vivid images of natural scenery.

* The brightness when using the six-segment colour wheel is about 71% of the brightness when using the four-segment colour wheel.

Five types of lenses selectable for the installation environment

Five different lenses are available to support a variety of uses. The projector supports screens from 40 to 500 inches; select the optimum lens depending on the specific installation environment, such as conference rooms, halls, and exhibitions. For a 100-inch screen, projection is possible at a distance 1.6 m (short fixed focus lens) or between 2.7 m to 17.1 m for the NP4100, while projection is possible at a distance 1.7 m (short fixed focus lens) or between 2.9 m to 18.4 m for the NP4100W. Lenses are easily replaced by the customer and do not require special tools.

* Note: Lenses are not attached to the NP4100/NP4100W.

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

With the powered lens shift mechanism, the position of projected images on screen can be adjusted in both the vertical and horizontal directions without moving the projector. Furthermore, Keystone correction corrects distortions in the vertical and horizontal directions up to a maximum +/- 35 degrees in the horizontal direction and a maximum +/- 40 degrees in the vertical direction. Adjustment of lens zoom and focus, as well as Lens shift and Keystone correction, can be operated for the projector installed on the ceiling with the remote control.

and manual adjustment may be required. In the case of composite sync signals or sync on G signals,
it may not display properly.
*10 : HDCP is an acronym for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection.
High bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) is a system
for preventing illegal copying of video data sent over a Digital Visual Interface (DVI).
If you are unable to view material via the DVI 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).
