NEC M363W Projector Review - Special Features

Posted on November 3, 2015 by Art Feierman
NEC M363W Projector - Special Features: DICOM SIM Image Mode, Advanced Eco Mode, MHL Support, USB Viewer, Wall Color Correction Presets, Wireless Projection from Tablet, Geometric Correction Tool

DICOM SIM Image Mode

The DICOM SIM mode on the M363W displays images simulating the DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine) standard used with B/W medical imaging (such as X-rays).  This mode optimizes black/gray/white detail.  Like other projectors that include such a mode, it is not intended for actual medical evaluation, but it allows for more accurate training of medical students, as well as more detailed medical imaging presentations.

Advanced Eco Mode


When set to Auto Eco in Eco mode, the M363W automatically adjusts the Eco lamp setting between Off and Normal, depending on the brightness of the projected image.  This means that with darker scenes, the lamp may have its power consumption dropped by up to 25%, resulting in reduced energy usage and extended lamp life.

MHL Support

NEC's MHL/HDMI port (HDMI 1) lets you stream multimedia content from a wireless dongle (such as Roku, Google TV, Fire TV, ChromeCast, etc.), or lets you connect to other devices via an HDMI cable.

USB Viewer

Using NEC's included presentation conversion software, you simply place your file onto a USB drive and plug it into the projector’s USB port. This allows you to display images stored as JPGs from optional USB memory.

Wall Color Correction Presets

Often the need for presenting on a wall, blackboard (classroom) or whiteboard (conference room) may arise.  To this end, NEC has included presets that change the color balance of the projected image to work with the presentation surface.  These presets include: Whiteboard, Blackboard, Blackboard (Gray), Light Yellow, Light Blue and Light Rose.

Wireless Projection from Tablet

NEC's Wireless Image Utility (WIU) allows you to send images directly from an iPad or Android tablet directly to the projector (requires wireless LAN module NP02LM1).

Geometric Correction Tool

By using the Image Express Utility Lite software provided, the M363W is able to project a geometrically correct image with the projector placed at an angle from the screen.  This feature is similar to keystone correction, but can correct greater misalignment than simple keystone correction.  It can be handy in a presentation where it is not practical for the projector to be placed directly back from the middle of the screen.
