NEC Display Solutions Introduces New PA Series Projector for Installation Applications

NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the latest addition to its PA Projector Series with the introduction of the PA622U. This advanced, professional projector is 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. HDBaseT supports uncompressed full HD digital video, audio, and control over a single Cat6 cable, thereby 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. This feature is an asset to larger-sized screens and environments with additional ambient light. Built-in edge blending also delivers seamless high-resolution images of almost any configuration, giving users additional flexibility for creativity with their applications.

Continuing its role as a technology leader, NEC’s PA622U projector incorporates tilt-free installation capabilities, allowing for floor or ceiling projection – ideal for almost any install environment. With the addition of portrait mode, users can create new projection configurations and dynamic atmospheres.

“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. “Multi-display capabilities and TileMatrix technologies are integrated into the PA622U projector, creating up to a 4K x 2K resolution image while using four edge blended projectors.”

The virtually maintenance-free projector – with up to 4,000 hours of lamp and filter life – lowers a user’s total cost of ownership and lengthens projector life. Additionally, selectable ECO Mode™ technology extends the projector’s lamp life by up to 50 percent, while eco-conscious features like quick start (3 to 4 seconds), auto power-on and direct power-off further advance the projector’s lifetime.

The PA622U projector also provides greater installation flexibility with a complete line of six optional bayonet-style lenses for quick and easy exchange. Lens-throw distances range from 2.5 ft. to 68.5 ft. A vertical lens shift of 60 percent and a horizontal lens shift of +/- 30 percent make alignment easy.

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 4 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 ship with a 3-year limited parts and labor warranty, and will be available in April 2014 at an estimated street price of $6,599. The lamp is covered for 1 year or 500 hours, whichever comes first. Education customers can receive an additional year on their warranties. Meanwhile, Star Student customers can receive an additional two years on their warranties. To qualify, visit www.necstarstudent.com for registration details.

TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...

The Internet of Things needs an entirely new security model, or does it? Can we save some old and tested controls for the latest emerging and different technology environments? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, will review hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal privacy options and a new risk balance you might not expect.
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, will discuss the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. The presentation will also discuss how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics to discuss are barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold.
