NEC ME401X Professional Business Projector



Great performance with low TCO. 

Guaranteeing the perfect support for successful lectures and presentations, the compact multi-purpose ME401X projector delivers crisp images and natural colours to your classroom and meeting facility thanks to LCD technology and 4000 ANSI lumen brightness. Comprehensive connectivity and optional WiFi provide the utmost flexibility and time saving operation. The pre-installed MultiPresenter function enables simultaneous wireless presenting and sharing for up to 16 devices when the optional WiFi is chosen. Extended lamp and filter life are lowering both maintenance time and cost ensuring a smooth operation over 5 years*.

The ME401X is the perfect choice when considering replacing M Series XGA LCD projectors. With the same footprint, lens position and throw angle it has never been easier to bring the latest technology to your classroom or meeting facility saving both time and money with no maintenance. With its downward compatibility for lamps of the M LCD series, even your stock is a safe investment!
