The 3M 2600 lumens SCP740 Super Close Projector is ideal for classroom, conference room and boardroom. With its computer RGB outlet you can view your presentation on your own monitor while facing your audience.


What's a "Super Close Projector" From less than five feet from the screen you can project an image up to 98 inches. There's even digital keystone correction of plus or minus 16 degrees.

With a three year warranty on the projector and 90 days on the lamp you can tell that 3M is serious about backing what it makes. There's even a 24/7 Technical Support line in the US and a website for free unlimited downloads and updates.

But with its international power supply (100 – 240 Volts AC, 50/60 Hz) and the its ability to display NTSC (North America), PAL (The UK, Western Europe and Australia) and SECAM (the former Soviet Union states, France and much of Eastern Europe) video signals you can take this projector far beyond these shores.

Despite its pure projection power the SCP740 is easy to control. It not only has the usual infrared remote with multi-language onscreen display you'd expect, it also has an RS232 jack for advanced control and an RJ-45Ethernet (LAN) jack for connection to your LAN. Through this connection the SCP740 can even alert you to fault conditions.

The SCP740 can be deployed on a desktop or mounted on the ceiling and it can be used in front and rear projection mode. There's also an optional Kensington lock kit to use the SCP740's integrated Kensington lock slot to render the projector theft resistant.


2600 Lumens and 1600:1 Contrast Ratio
Plenty of projection power even when you have to leave some ambient light available for participants to take notes.

One Computer RGB Output Ideal for Presenter's Monitor
With a monitor in front of you, you can face your audience without having to crane your neck to view the projected presentation.

Compatible with Worldwide Standards
Accepts video signals in the NTSC, PAL and SECAM standards. And the universal power supply can handle voltages from 100 to 240 volts. If you're going overseas just pick up the optional power cord for the region where you'll be presenting and you're good to go.

Compatible with PC and Macintosh Standards
Compatible resolutions include 640 x 480 (VGA), 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 960* (iMAC), 1152 x 870* (MAC), 1024 x 768 (MAC 19") and WXGA (1280 x 800). *Resolution digitally compressed.

RCA Video Input Connector For Digital Cameras, Gaming and More
With the SCP740 it's not all work and no play. Imagine playing your favorite Wii, Xbox or PS3 game on a screen whose diagonal width is measured in feet, not inches!

2000 – 3000 Hour Lamp Life
If you use the projector about a half hour a day in Normal mode every business day of the year it could be as long as four years before you need to replace the lamp. Use it in Whisper (Eco) mode under the same schedule and the lamp could last six years before needing replacement.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.

How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.

How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.

Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.

What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.

Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.

May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covered product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.

Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
