NEC’s range of projectors are impressive to say the least, and their latest PA Series comprises of the PA600X, PA550W, PA500U and PA500X. Targeting installation projects, this new series of advanced professional projectors is perfect in corporate conference rooms and large classrooms, taking to those kind of spaces and venues like a fish to water.
These are advanced models which are capable of providing the most connectivity and control options of any NEC multimedia projectors, ranging from their DisplayPort input to their integrated networking capabilities. Of course, what is the whole point of rolling out a whole new series of projectors if they are not going to have any improvements over its predecessors? That’s what we’re going to look at in the extended post.
Among the abundance of new features that have been included in the PA Series include the center lens design of these four new models which makes retrofitting existing installations easier and more cost effective. Of course, the new chassis does its bit as well by offering enhanced connectivity with HDMI and DisplayPort inputs, delivering a greater level of flexibility during use.
Making its debut among NEC’s projector lineup would be the Crestron Roomview, where it lets users directly connect their projector to the managed network for monitoring and control purposes. Thanks to a brightness level ranging from 5000 to 6000 lumens, the ability to project in three different native resolutions, the PA Series is more than able to complement to any large room requiring demanding AV support.
They are also pretty easy to maintain, thanks to 4000 hours of lamp and filter life, ensuring that your total cost of ownership is lowered while enjoying a lengthy lifecycle with your purchase. One more interesting point of note – these four new models can be stacked vertically or horizontally to boost the image brightness up to 24,000 lumens – now how about that?
The PA600X, PA550W, PA500U and PA500X projectors will all come with a 3-year limited parts and labor warranty, where they will retail for $3,999, $3,399, $5,499 and $3,199, respectively.
