The NP4100 has a dual lamp design. You can use both lamps at the same time for the brightest picture possible, alternate use of them or keep one in reserve so you'll never be caught out with burned out lamp. (Although the projector does warn you when a lamp is nearing the end of its life. If you've plugged your projector into your LAN it can even email you with the news.)
The NP4100 is designed to work under the most grueling of duty cycles: 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And the projector can be mounted at any angle—literally 360 degrees. So it's the kind of projector you need if you have a public advertising display or similar application. Under those conditions you'll really appreciate its capacity for remote monitoring and control via the Internet.
You don't have to worry about not having easy access to the projector if you set it up in a hard to reach place. It boasts power zoom, focus and lens shift, all adjustable from its remote control. Power vertical and horizontal lens shift allows for flexible placement too.
Whether in a commercial location like a mall, a meeting room or your media room, the NP4100 has the projection power to make a big impression: Maximum 6200 lumens at a contrast ratio of 2100:1. Its Texas Instruments Digital Light Processor Digital Micromirror Device (DLP DMD) with BrilliantColor and DynamicBlack ensures a crisp, vivid true-to-life image even when there's a lot of ambient light to punch through.
With that kind of illumination you might use the NP4100 in a venue where its three watt stereo speakers can't keep up. Not to worry. This projector has variable audio out so you can add external powered speakers so your presentation is heard as easily it's seen.
The NP4100's flexibility includes a 100 to 240 volt 50/60 Hz power supply, the ability to accept video in the NTSC, PAL and SECAM standards and its 720p, 1080i and 1080p high definition capability.
- 6200 ANSI Lumens And a 2100:1 Contrast Ratio
- No wonder why NEC calls the NP4100 a "large venue digital projector." It has the projection power to punch through a great deal of ambient light and create very large, very bright images. It's secret? It uses two lamps.
- Flexible Dual Lamp Projection System
- For maximum light output use both lamps for a full 6200 ANSI lumens. Or you can economize by using just one lamp. You can alternate lamps 1 and 2 or hold one lamp in reserve so you'll know you'll never have to worry about a lamp burning out at an inopportune time.
- Texas Instruments BrilliantColor With DynamicBlack Technology
- TI's patented DLP technology can dramatically increase system brightness and color saturation at mid and low video levels, while optimizing color gain across the full color gamut. DynamicBlack technology allows for dramatic improvement in the black level of the video, producing incredible detail in dark scenes.
- Power Focus, Zoom and Vertical and Horizontal Lens Shift
- If you're of a certain age you can remember when power windows were found only on luxury cars. Now they're pretty much standard. Perhaps someday all projectors will have power focus, power zoom (1.6x) and power vertical (50 percent) and horizontal (10 percent) lens shift. The NP4100 has them all today.
- Includes Both Four-Segment and Six-Segment Color Wheels
- For applications requiring maximum brightness, a four-segment color wheel is preinstalled. For the highest quality video color reproduction, a 6-segment color wheel is also included.
- Network Ready With RJ45 (Ethernet) Jack
- You can plug your NP4100 into your LAN and set it up for remote monitoring and control in just a few minutes. The projector can be down the hall or across the world. You can also have the projector email you when it detects error conditions or a lamp is nearing the end of its useful life.
- 360 Degree Range of Mounting Options
- Most projectors can be tilted a few degrees up or down and you're cautioned not to exceed the maximum recommended tilt. The NP4100 can actually be mounted at any level of tilt. In other words it will work when tilted anywhere in a full 360 circle around its vertical axis to meet your toughest (and strangest) mounting requirements.
- Filterless Design Saves You Time And Money
- The sealed optical block minimizes the effects of dust, helping to ensure the delivery of crisp, distortion-free images without the need for filters that have to be periodically cleaned and replaced.
- Quick Power Off
- Quick Power Off protects the lamp during the cool down period if the power is removed by unplugging the power cord or when the power strip is switched off. Lamp temperature is monitored internally during this period to prevent unit power on until the lamp is properly cooled.
- Five Optional Lenses From Which You Can Choose
- There are five quick-mount optional lenses available for your 4100. The range from a fixed, short throw lens (ideal for rear projection applications where space behind the screen might be tight) to a number of zoom lenses that allow you to vary the size of the projected image without moving the projector. These are the available lenses:
- 0.8:1 fixed short throw lens
- 1.33 - 1.79:1 zoom lens
- 1.78 - 2.35:1 zoom lens
- 2.22 - 4.43:1 zoom lens
- 4.43 - 8.3:1 zoom lens
