NEC Display Solutions Europe has announced two new additions to its PA Series of LCD projectors, which it suggests will take low-maintenance projector technology to a new level.

Launching this week at ISE 2017, the PA803UL and the PA653UL projectors feature a filter-free design, with the intention of removing one of the most costly maintenance issues normally found in installed projector devices.

In order to reduce maintenance requirements even further, the two new laser projectors also boast a fully sealed optical engine, which allows for brightness levels to remain consistently high without the risk of dust damage.

The brand new devices also offer users an impressive high-lumen output of 8,000 from the PA803UL and 6,500 from the PA653UL, as well as 4K60Hz image signal processing and Rec2020 colour conversion for sharp and clear projections.

Other key features of the projectors include flexible installation options created with 360 degree positioning support that allows projection in any direction.

Commenting on the latest additions to the NEC line up, Gerd Kaiser, Product Line Manager Large Venue Projectors at NEC Display Solutions Europe, suggested that their features make them ideal for museum, meeting room and education environments.

“Filterless operation represents not only a new technical achievement in projector design, it delivers significant reliability and operational expenditure benefits for our customers in these sectors,” he added.

“With no filter to change, downtime is reduced, while engineer visits and the associated disruption of gaining access to the projector for filter work are eliminated.”

The new PA653UL laser projector will be available by April 2017, with the PA803UL laser projector model following in August 2017.
