Commercial LCD display and projector solutions provider NEC Display Solutions of America has added to its PA Projector Series with the introduction of the PA622U, a 6,200-lumen projector designed to be ideal for corporate, higher education and museum applications.
The PA622U is the first projector in the NEC lineup that includes an HDBaseT connection. HDBaseT reduces the cost and time of installations by simplifying the install process, according to NEC. HDBaseT supports uncompressed full HD digital video, audio and control over a single Cat6 cable, eliminating the need for multiple cables and connections.
The 6,200-lumen projector offers stacking capability, which allows up to four projectors to be stacked vertically or horizontally to boost the image brightness up to 24,800 lumens. Built-in edge blending also delivers seamless high-resolution images, giving users additional flexibility for creativity with their applications.
NEC's PA622U projector incorporates tilt-free installation capabilities, allowing for floor or ceiling projection, and with the addition of portrait mode, users can create new projection configurations and dynamic atmospheres, the company said.
"This advanced model is equipped to take on the most demanding integration projects," said Rich McPherson, senior product manager for projectors at NEC Display Solutions, in the announcement. "Multidisplay capabilities and TileMatrix technologies are integrated into the PA622U projector, creating up to a 4K-by-2K resolution image while using four edge blended projectors."
The new PA Series projector includes the following features:
- 6,200 lumens in WUXGA native resolution
- Lamp life up to 4,000 hours with ECO Mode
- Connectivity, which includes HDBaseT, dual HDMI with HDCP, DisplayPort, computer and 5BNC
- Stacking capability (up to four projectors)
- Advanced AccuBlend, which ensures detailed images when non-native resolution sources are connected to the projector
- Complete line of six bayonet-style lenses
- 3D Reform, which squares the image by adjusting horizontally, vertically or diagonally when the projector is placed at an off-set angle
- Cornerstone correction, which helps display the image properly when the projector is set up at an angle to the screen
- Geometric correction, which allows the projector to display square-looking images on cylindrical, spherical or cornered screens
- Horizontal and vertical lens shift
- Edge blending technology, which creates panoramic images with multiple projectors
- DICOM Simulation
- Email notifications to inform the system administrator when the projector's lamp approaches the end of its useful life.
The PA622U projector ships with a three-year limited parts and labor warranty, and will be available in April at an estimated street price of $6,599. The lamp is covered for one year or 500 hours, whichever comes first. Education customers can receive an additional year on their warranties.
