NEC Display Intros World’s First Filter-Free LCD Laser Projectors

NEC Display just announced the NP-PA653UL and NP-PA803UL installation projectors – and they are the world’s first filter-free LCD laser models. The projectors’ laser light sources and sealed optical engines prevent the accumulation of dust particles and give users 20,000 hours of maintenance-free performance. Spec’d at 6,500 lumens and 8,000 lumens, respectively, the PA Series projectors are aimed at schools, museums, corporations, retailers and other places where there is high ambient lit rooms.

NEC Display’s filter-less operation represents both a technical design and an industry breakthrough. Facing less projector downtime and fewer service repairs, users can maximize their technology investments and the applications available to them.

Both of the current projectors in the PA Series are WUXGA (1920×1200) resolution projectors and can handle inputs up to 4K/60p. Factory-st with the Rec2020 color conversion technology, they are both capable of handling 10-bit color processing and have an 8,000:1 contrast ratio. Input include two HDMI ports, a DisplayPort with HDCP and an HDBaseT inout with HDCP.
