NEC Display Solutions of America launched the brightest projector in its PA laser projector series, the PA1004UL. It has 10,000 lumens of brightness. The WUXGA resolution PA1004UL’s claim-to-fame is how quiet it is — at a 35 dB operating noise level — like 30% quieter than any other projector in its brightness category. This quiet operation is helpful in classrooms and meeting rooms to ensure students and colleagues can hear the teacher or presenter.
The PA1004UL provides a low total cost of ownership due to several factors. It features NEC Display’s sealed LCD cooling system, keeping the element dust and filter-free, meaning no filter changes are necessary, and the laser engine means no bulbs to change. The unit’s total lifetime can also be extended if the full 10,000-lumen brightness is not needed, and the unit can be adjusted down. Customers will save on installation costs as well. Backwards-compatible lens options offer a cost savings of up to $2,000, according to NEC, and connectivity options like HDBaseT repeater make multi-projector installations simpler.
To assist in consultation and installation for the PA1004UL and many other projector-and-lens combinations, NEC Display has also launched its Image Calculator and Projector Locator tool. This free and interactive tool allows users to input factors such as room size, throw distance, screen size and more to determine the best projector model, lens and placement for their specific application.
The NEC PA1004UL laser projector is available now at $17,499.
