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.

    A PC connected to LAN automatically detects projectors on the network. 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.
    Cinematic video powered by HQV (Hollywood Quality Video)

    HD-like, vivid and crisp DVD images can be projected with the Reon VX video processor using HQV technology from Silicon Optix.
    HQV represents an enormous leap in video processing, with true flagship performance in noise reduction, de-interlacing and scaling.

  • Random and Mosquito Noise Reduction
  • Video and Film Cadence Detection (3:2 and 2:2 pull down)
  • Per-pixel Motion Adaptive Deinterlacing
  • Detail Enhancement
  • Full 10-bit processing, scaling and warping
  • HQV
  • 3 : 2 Pull down Detection
  • Diagonal Interpolation to remove "jaggies"

    The projector supports wired/wireless LAN

    Wireless LAN unit By 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.

    *Available as Service parts, not as an Option.
    Picture-in-picture function
    This function projects two different signals simultaneously. The main picture signal supports the COMPUTER 1 and 2 inputs. The sub picture signal supports the VIDEO input only. The sub picture can be displayed either at the top-left, the top-right, the bottom-left, or the bottom right in the main picture. Picture in picture
    Five types of optional lenses available for Flexible installation
    In order to support a variety of Installations, five types of lenses are available in addition to the standard lens. The projector supports screens from 30 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 1.66 m (Wide Angle Fixed Lens) or between 2.4 m to 14.7 m. Lenses are easily replaced by the customer and do not require special tools.

    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.
    3D Reform function
    Angled projection ability lets you place the projector anywhere you like. With the 3D Reform function, it is also possible to correct trapezoidal distortion manually by clicking the four corners of the projected image with a mouse connected to the main unit to project square images. This allows greater freedom in setting up the projector, because it can now be set up at an angle in relation to the screen. The projector no longer needs to be placed right in front of the screen where it can block the audience's view of the screen.
    3D Reform Function
    Multiple input/output terminals including DVI (digital) , BNC, and built-in stereo speakers
    Multiple input/output terminals include analogue RGB, 5-core BNC, DVI (digital),video, and S-video. (The analogue RGB and BNC also support component inputs.) The 5W+5W stereo speakers are built in to provide audiovisual conditions with high image and audio qualities. Furthermore, the Viewer feature allows you to view slides stored on a USB memory on the projector. Even if no computer is available, presentations can be conducted simply with the projector. Terminal area
    *To use the Viewer, first you need to create presentation materials on your PC (JPEG, BMP, GIF, PNG). Use commercially available USB memory devices. We do not warrant that the USB port of the projector will support all USB memory devices in the market.
    A variety of functions can be added by updating the firmware of the projector (scheduled for Spring 2008)
