NEC Display Solutions of America has introduced the UM352W, which is designed to provide greater collaboration between students and teachers.

The 3,500-lumen projector includes two interactive pens and a built-in interactive pen receiver that can be used on just about any surface. Although it can be used without a computer, it does work with NEC's NPO1TM touch module, allowing finger-touch white-boarding and interactivity with a connected computer.

It includes an app that lets teachers and students present, share and annotate content from a large variety of devices, including PCs, tablets and smartphones.

Among the UM352W's other features:

  • Lamp life of up to 6,000 hours;
  • 1,280 x 800 WXGA resolution;
  • The ability to share content over multiple wired and wireless networks at once;
  • Integrated 20-watt speaker;
  • Remote control;
  • Keystone correction tools; and
  • A wide set of inputs.

The UM352W with built-in pen-based interactivity, stand-alone white-boarding and DisplayNote software is available at a suggested retail price of $2,349. Bundled with a custom wall mount, the suggested retail price is $2,449, and with the custom wall mount and interactive touch module $2,748.

"Educators continually tell us the importance of collaboration with students in the classroom," said NEC Display Solutions Senior Product Manager Bob Guentner. "The UM352W projector helps them fulfill that mission."
