NEC's 2800-lumen VE281X mobile projector is designed to provide high brightness for small-to-medium-sized businesses, education environments, corporate conference rooms and mobility applications where heavy ambient light is present but the space requires a small projector. This lightweight model is affordable with essential features, including 3D Ready technology, 3000:1 contrast ratio and a powerful 7W speaker. Its automated technologies--from Auto Power On and quick startup/shutdown to a lamp life up to 6000 hours--make it an eco-friendly choice. The VE281X offers the Intelligent Driving Scheme (IDS2) for increased lamp life and contrast.

  • Automatic Power ON via RGB (15-pin) input
  • BrilliantColor, including a 6-segment color wheel, provides accurate color reproduction
  • Quick startup/cooling/shutdown minimizes projector setup and teardown between meetings
  • ECO Mode technology helps extend lamp life and lowers power consumption
  • Carbon savings meter calculates the positive effects of operating the projector in ECO Mode
  • Compact size and lightweight design simplify transport


3D Ready
When combined with active shutter glasses (NP01GL), this projector uses DLP Link technology, developed by Texas Instruments, to create 3D images.

Auto Power On
Powers on the projector as soon as it is plugged into a power outlet.

Intuitively syncs the projector with most computer signals and features one-touch image optimization.

Advanced video processing from Texas Instruments delivers exceptional picture management control for both progressive and interlaced sources, while making images more vibrant, colors more realistic and blacks richer with detail.

Built-In Closed Captioning
Enables decoding and display of text information from a video.

Intelligent Driving Scheme
Increases lamp life and contrast to improve environmental consciousness

Crestron Roomview
Provides unified management, including the ability to switch the power on and off for multiple projectors connected to a network.

ECO Mode
Extends lamp life, lowers audible noise and reduces total cost of ownership.

Quick Startup and Quick Power-Off
Allows users to begin presenting within 3 to 4 seconds and allows immediate power off with no cooling required after shutdown to ensure efficient energy usage.

Virtual Remote
Used over the VGA cable to control the projector directly from a computer without the need for additional control cables.
