Direct power on, auto power on auto power off
Direct power on, auto power on and auto power off features eliminate the need to always use the power button on the remote control or projector cabinet.
Quick power off and direct power off
The quick power off function stops the cooling fan immediately after turning off the power to the projector, which makes it possible to move the projector quickly.
For a rapid shut down, the projector can be turned off without powering off the projector using the direct power off function and a power strip equipped with a switch and breaker.
Lamp life is extended to 6,000 hours (eco mode)
Carbon meter for visualising environmental impact
The projector employs a ‘carbon meter’ that displays the reduced volume of carbon dioxide emissions from using eco mode.
Graphic on-screen design using icons offers intuitive operation
HDMI input port (VE281X/VE281)
The VE281X and VE281 projectors are equipped with HDMI ports, enabling them to project digital image signals in high resolution. The HDMI input also supports audio signals.
Low power consumption in power-saving (Stand by) mode
Power consumption in power-saving (Stand by) mode is 0.3 W (100-130 V AC) or 0.4W (200-240 V AC) , which is compatible with European regulation ErP Lot6 Tier2 and help to reduce the total cost of ownership.

*1 : Effective pixels are more than 99.99%.
*2 : Lamp life is defined as the average time span for the brightness of the lamp to be reduced by half, it does not refer to the warranty period for the lamp.
Lamp replacement needs to be done by NEC authorized engineers only. You may contact nearest NEC authorized service centres.
*3 : This is the light output value (ANSI lumens) when the [PRESET] mode is set to [HIGH-BRIGHT]. If any other mode is selected as the [PRESET] mode, the light output value may drop slightly.
*4 : Compliance with ISO21118-2005
