NEC’s UM352Wi is a UST 3LCD projector for education, supporting multiple pen inputs at the same time. Up to 50 devices can be connected to the projector at the same time, wirelessly, with screen mirroring via Miracast and NEC’s Displaynote software. A maximum of 16 devices can be mirrored at once. Alternatively, content can be shared from the projector to web browsers.

Two interactive pens and the receiver are bundled with the projector. Touch capabilities can be added through an option module. Set up is designed to be easy, with auto-calibration and curved screen correction features.

The projector features Crestron Roomview and AMX Beacon support, as well as a carbon savings meter and DICOM Simulation mode.
