M Series laser projectors using DLP technology provide all the essential features that you need to simply and reliably connect with your audience at an affordable price.

The 3800-lumen, 1080p (1920 x 1080) native resolution NEC M380HL is ideal for classrooms that need a clear image that can be seen all around the room. Enjoy the convenience of vertical lens shift, direct power on and quick power off.

The M Series offers a long term, maintenance-free solution and a low total cost of ownership.

Key Features:
  • Up to 30,000-hour laser light source eliminates maintenance requirements and lowers total cost of ownership
  • DLP technology provides engaging images in any environment
  • Vertical lens shift provides installers with flexibility when the ideal mounting location is not possible
  • Direct power on and quick power off help maximize presentation time
  • Tilt-free and portrait capability open new possibilities for non-typical projection applications


  • Vertical Lens Shift: helps installers square the image when obstructions prevent placement in the ideal location
  • Portrait Mode: allows the projector to be rotated (and screen if necessary) to a vertical alignment so that portrait content can be viewed without black bars on the side when landscape mode is used.
  • Tilt-Free Installation: allows the projector to be rotated freely (360°) in order to point up or down depending on the installation requirements.
  • Dual HDMI inputs (with HDCP): ensure quick switching between presentations and allows for simultaneous digital connections of high-definition sources, such as Blu-ray players, cable boxes, satellite receivers and computers
  • Built-In Speakers: enhance the visual experience with superior sound
  • 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.
  • Auto Power On: powers on the projector as soon as it is plugged into a power outlet.
  • 3D Ready: When combined with active shutter glasses (NP02GL), this projector uses DLP Link™ technology, developed by Texas Instruments, to create 3D images.
  • ECO Mode™: extends light source life, lowers audible noise and reduces total cost of ownership.
  • 4K Ready
