NEC NP-V332W Projector Review - Special Features:  Network Support, Color Correction for Off-White Walls,  MHL Support, Virtual Remote Tool

Network Support

The NP-V332W has a built-in RJ45 connector supporting 10 or 100 Mbps LAN connections.  This connector also supports connections to the newer HDBaseT multimedia networks.  However, wireless network support is not offered with this model.

HDBaseT, also known as HDBT, has been catching on as a protocol for delivering HD resolution information over long distances (over 200 feet) using CAT5 or CAT6 cables, rather, than, for example, very expensive HDMI cables which aren’t designed to run such long  lengths.

NEC offers, for download, their "PC Control Utility Pro" software in MS Windows and Mac OS versions.  This software allows control of the projector via a LAN connection (or via a direct serial comm. connection) .  This provides control functions for such things as:  Power On/Off, signal selection, picture freeze, picture mute, audio mute, error message notification, and event schedule.

The NP-V322W also supports Crestron Roomview(TM) allowing multiple devices, including the projector, connected in the network to be managed and controlled from a central computer or a controller.

Color Correction for Off-White Walls

Often the need for projecting a presentation onto 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 various presentation surface colors.  In addition to a Blackboard preset image mode, there are wall correction color settings for projecting onto walls with Red, Green, Blue, Cyan, Magenta or Yellow tints.

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 MHL enabled devices (e.g., tablets or smartphones) via an HDMI cable.

Virtual Remote Tool

NEC offers a software utility for MS Windows based PCs that will allow the control of the projector from the PC via a LAN connection.  The Virtual Remote Tool can also be used with a serial connection to the projector.  A virtual remote control is displayed on the computer's screen (as shown below) that is then used to control the projector.
