NEC UM Series Projectors Provide Big Performance in Constrained Spaces
NEC has released its UM Series of projectors, allowing users to enjoy a clearly projected display of up to 62 inches from as close as 10.5cm between the projector and the screen.
All four models from the UM series (UM330W, UM330X, UM280W and UM280X) come equipped with Automatic Power On, and take only a mere 3 seconds to get ready for projection. In addition, there's the Quick Power Off and Direct Power Off functions in case you need to stow the projector away immediately after use.
Other innovations include a USB function that connects projector and PC with just one single USB cable, and wireless applications that gives you a free hand to send images to the projector from handheld devices such as tablets, iPads, iPhones and even iPods. A new option is the interactive eBeam, a plug-in module that allows for easy annotation and comes with plenty of teaching tools.
Also incorporated is the Auto Eco Mode, which automatically adjusts the brightness to suit the projected image, cutting down on power used and extending lamp life to some 8,000 hours. A carbon meter makes it easy to visualise the amount of carbon emissions reduced, helping you to monitor and adjust your own carbon footprint.
