NEC Unveils 4K-Capable Projectors
NEC's PA Series projector
NEC Display Solutions of America has rolled out three new projectors capable of creating a 4K-resolution image.
The new generation of PA Series multimedia installation projectors — models PA521U, PA571W and PA621X — use a screen splitter (multidisplay) via daisy chain to connect four projectors through TileMatrix, resulting in a 4K image. Images can be transmitted from laptops, tablets, smartphones and campus networks.
The PA521U features 1,920 x 1,200 native resolution and 5,200 lumens of brightness; the PA571W has 1,280 x 800 resolution and 5,700 lumens of brightness; and the PA621X has 1,024 x 768 resolution and 6,200 lumens of brightness. All three models offer 5,000:1 contrast ratios.
Other features include:
- 4,000 hours of lamp and filter life with ECO Mode
- Edge blending software and hardware;
- Geometric Correction Tool, allowing users to project images onto any surface, such as a cylinder, sphere or corner;
- Stacking capabilities to boost image brightness (up to four projectors);
- Tilt-free and portrait mode capabilities;
- 3D capabilities using XPAND glasses and emitters;
- Horizontal and vertical lens shift;
- Dual HDMI inputs/outputs and DisplayPort for looping up to four projectors;
- Wired and wireless networking; and
- Bundled options with lenses available.
The PA521U, PA571W and PA621X projectors are priced at $5,799, $3,899 and $4,499, respectively. For more information, visit the NEC Display site.
