The NEC NP215 is a low priced high powered projector that's as useful in the living room as it is in the conference room. It can project high definition signals in the 720p and 1080i formats and most international TV standards. Its 100 to 200 V AC 50/60 Hz power supply is also ready for the world.

NEC NP215 Description:

The NP215 is so ecologically conscious it can even calculate and display its own carbon footprint in kg by operating in ECO mode. ECO mode lowers light output somewhat, slows the fan and saves you money.

This projector is people friendly too. Its input panel is clearly labeled and color coded. And it enables you to include the hard of hearing members of your audience by displaying Closed Captioning from program sources that provide it. CC also comes in handy to help people whose native language isn't English.

The NP215 sports a 0.55" DLP chip with BrilliantColor. This chip increases color accuracy while it increases color brightness by up to 50 percent. And it processes six different primary colors rather than the usual three. What's more, projectors powered by DLP light engines require no filters that have to be cleaned and replaced periodically.

NEC NP215 Features:

2500 Lumens and 2000:1 Contrast Ratio Courtesy of Texas Instruments
Bright, high contrast images from the latest Texas Instruments DLP engine featuring BrilliantColor technology with improved color accuracy can fill a medium to large room, even if there's a fairly high level of ambient light. And DLP panels don't require filters that have to be periodically cleaned and replaced.
Environmentally and Budget Friendly
ECO Mode technology increases lamp life up to 5000 hours, while lowering power consumption and energy costs. The Auto Power On feature activates the projector when a computer signal is detected via the RGB (15-pin) input connector. On the other hand, power management enables the projector to automatically turn off when an incoming signal is not detected from any of the inputs. There's even a carbon savings meter that calculates the positive effects of operating the projector in ECO Mode, which is encouraged by an optional message at startup.
Quick On And Quick Off
Quick start (3 to 4 seconds) lets you begin presenting in seconds while quick shutdown (immediate power off with no cooling required after shutdown) ensures efficient energy usage and no wasted time waiting around for the bulb to cool down.
Ready For The World
The 100 240V AC, 50/60 Hz power supply will work almost anywhere in the world (optional power cord may be required.) The NP 215 can also handle video signals in the NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL-M, N, B, D, G, H, I, 60 and SECAM formats, covering much of the world. In addition it's compatible with dozens of Mac and PC video formats. And of course it can project in 720p and 1080i high definition.
Closed Captioning
Built-in closed captioning enables decoding and display of text information from a video source that contains it. Let your whole audience participate, including those who are hard of hearing and those learning English as a foreign language
Security Measures Protect Your Investment
The NP215 includes a password protection feature that ensures only authorized people use the projector. There's also a Kensington slot through which you can run a cable fastened to a larger object to physically secure it.
Built in Wall Color Correction
When your venue doesn't have a screen handy you may end up having to project your presentation on to the wall. That's not too bad if it's a white wall but what if the wall is say, light green Not a problem. The NP215 can compensate for nine different board and wall colors.
Network Ready
The NP215 has an integrated RJ45 connection for quick connection to a LAN. The projector's remote diagnostics enable you to monitor and make adjustments to the projector from any computer on your LAN.

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.
