NEC DISPLAY SOLUTIONS INTRODUCES NEW PA SERIES PROJECTOR FOR INSTALLATION APPLICATIONSProfessional Advanced Model with New Chassis Brings Upgraded Connectivity and 6,200 Lumens of Brightness
CHICAGO - April 22, 2014- 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

The lamp is covered for 1 year or 500 hours, whichever comes first. Education customers can receive an additional year on their warranties.
