Geometric Correction Tool – By using the Image Express Utility Lite software provided, the M311X 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.
DICOM SIM Image Mode - NEC has included a special picture mode to the M311X that 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.
Auto Lamp Mode – When set to Auto Lamp in Eco mode, the M311X 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.
Wireless Projection From iPad – In addition to the network presentation abilities of the M311X (see the “Wired and Wireless Networking” section), NEC’s Wireless Image Utility allows for wireless projection directly from an iPad, without a network connection.
USB Memory Viewer – This feature enables you to display photos (JPG) stored on a USB storage device, without the use of a PC. There is also software to convert a PowerPoint presentation to JPG images to allow the presenter to do a full PowerPoint presentation without a PC.
