The NEC PA500U is a projector that has a center lens design that allows for retrofitting existing installations and a chassis that provides enhanced connectivity with HDMI and DisplayPort inputs. It also supports Crestron Roomview, which allows users to directly connect their projector to the managed network for monitoring and control. It is ideal for large room presentation with AV support, and has up to 4000 hours of lamp and filter life. The projector also supports stacking capability, which allows up to four projectors to be stacked vertically or horizontally to boost the image brightness up to 24,000 lumens. This supports larger-sized screens and environments with additional ambient light. It is powered by integrated Device Technology HQV™, a video processing and scaling system that lets users present with pixel-based, motion-adaptive de-interlacing technology to remove undesirable motion artifacts. Other features include ECO Mode™ technology which extends each projector’s lamp life by up to 50 percent, a quick start (3 to 4 seconds), auto power on and direct power-off which extends the projector’s lifetime.
The NEC PA500U features integrated networking functions, such as RJ45 for connection to the LAN and high-speed wireless; Windows Network Projector, Windows Remote Desktop, Windows Network Drive Function and Windows Media Connection Function which are networking tools that allow users to connect to the shared network, control a networked computer through the projector’s USB input and display multimedia files; up to 6000 lumens in WXGA native resolution, up to 4000 hours with ECO Mode lamp life; HDMI with HDCP, DisplayPort, dual computer and 5BNC connectivity, HQV processing, Windows Network Projector Function wich directly connects the projector to networked projectors without the need for additional proprietary software; Windows Remote Desktop Function that allows the control of the projector with a keyboard and mouse through the USB input; Windows Network Drive and Media Connection functions display multimedia files (.jpeg, .bmp, .png, .mpeg2 or .wmv); five bayonet-style lenses; Image Express Lite for wired/wireless transmission of an image to the projector without the need for external components; Image Express 2.0 for image transmission in real time over the network to a single projector or multiple projectors simultaneously; 3D Reform™ which squares the image by adjusting horizontally, vertically or diagonally when the projector is placed at an off-set angle; and Cornerstone correction which helps display the image properly when the projector is set up at an angle to the screen. The projector also supports 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 for panoramic images with multiple projectors; DICOM Simulation; cabinet control lock; password protection and email notifications to inform the system administrator when the projector’s lamp approaches the end of its useful life.
