NPC-1 Network Projector Control

Control your computer/video projectors with ease. The EIKI NPC-1 system lets you maintain projectors and support end users
through your TCP/IP network ... from across the room, or around the world.
The EIKI NPC-1 system consists of a palm-sized projector-to-network interface, and software with basic features permitting you to
monitor projector status and manage projector functions. And optional software is available to support multiple projector control
and projector alerts.

Key Features:

Universal Network Control - Preconfigured for EIKI projectors, NPC-1 can control most projectors*... from EIKI or other manufacturers, in current production or legacy... with a simple file download**. Precision Command Control - There is no delay time between command and execution. True simultaneous execution of the same command on multiple devices is built-in (with the NetControl Advanced Package).
Easy To Configure and Use - NPC-1 requires no programming.
The NetControl software locates the NPC-1 on the network and assigns the projector. Only the control program on the computer gets updates.
Maximum Projector Security - The brains of the system are in the computer... not the controller. Even if the projector and controller are both disabled, the system knows (with the NetControl Advanced Package).
