Laser 1-DLP Projector, WUXGA, 21.5K Center Lumens, No Lens, 5-Year Warranty
Item #0601-0011 Model #NPPX2201UL



21,500-Lumen Professional Installation Projector (No Lens)

Think about projection technology in a whole new light! The NEC PX2201UL is a powerful installation projector with an RB laser light source that makes it perfect for all-new applications.

With more consistent brightness of 21.5K center lumens, improved color fidelity, and roll-free capabilities, this projector is a workhorse with a relatively small form factor. It is suited to a variety of high brightness, high-demand applications such as theme parks, simulation, retail, worship, higher education, museums, and corporate auditoriums.

Furthermore, the laser module delivers 20,000 hours of virtually maintenance-free operations, reducing your total cost of ownership.

Note: Lens is sold separately (see Accessories tab). 



Main Features

  • High-brightness, lower power consumption enhance always-on capabilities of laser projection
  • Ideal for new applications such as digital signage
  • Lamp-less operation reduces total-cost-of-ownership (TCO)
  • Eco-friendly features, minimal maintenance and cost savings mean these projectors are still great for demanding integration applications such as higher education and corporate
  • Breathe new life into older installations with 21,500 center lumens of brightness
  • Seamlessly blend multiple images with integrated edge blending capabilities
  • Built-in HDBaseT enables simplified installations with a single cable for video, audio, and control signals.

  • Advanced AccuBlend™: Ensures detailed images when non-native resolution sources are connected to the projector.
  • ECO Mode™: Extends light source life, lowers audible noise and reduces total cost of ownership.
  • Extended Use: For use in applications up to and including 24x7 operation.
  • Geometric Correction: Allows you to project on spheres, cylinders, corner angles and more.
  • Landscape/Portrait Capable: Allows for distortion-free display of content in various orientations, creating new application opportunities.
  • Tilt-Free Installation: Allows the projector to be rotated freely (360°) in order to point up or down depending on the installation requirements.
  • Variable Audio Out: Adjusts the volume of an external speaker system using the projector's remote control.
  • Portrait Mode: Ability to install a projector on its side to create a 10:16 portrait image
  • Virtual Remote: Used over the VGA cable to control the projector directly from a computer without the need for additional control cables.
  • Crestron Roomview: Provides unified management, including the ability to switch the power on and off for multiple projectors connected to a network.
  • DLP Technology: High contrast images (10,000:1) from the latest Texas Instruments DLP engine featuring BrilliantColor™ technology with improved color accuracy
  • Dual Computer Inputs: Ensures quick switching between presentations.
  • Edge Blending: Blend multiple projectors together to create non-standard images
  • Picture by Picture (PBP) mode: Displays either a second video source or the same video source in an window beside the main video source.
  • PIP/POP/Side-by-Side: Picture-in-picture (PIP) allows for a second frame within the screen area. Picture-on-picture (POP) surrounds the standard frame with multiple frames. Side-by-side places two sources adjacent to one another.
  • Motorized Zoom and Focus: Simplifies installation and operation by easily adjusting the lens through the remote control.
  • 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.
  • VORTEX Technology Plus: Improves white level, color accuracy, dynamic range and varying levels of black in an image.
  • Built-in Wall Color Correction: Presets provide for adaptive color tone correction to display properly on non-white surfaces.
  • Custom DMD shielding: Protects the projector from dust/oil contaminates and provides optimal picture quality.
  • 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
  • Lens Shift: Vertical and horizontal lens shift enables flexible projector placement.
  • Power Management: Enables projector to automatically turn off when an incoming signal is not detected from any of the inputs.
