NEC has unveiled its latest commercial projector, which incorporates the HDBaseT™ technology that allows transmission of uncompressed HD video over distances up to 100 metres.

The NEC NP-PA602U has been launched at the top industry event, InfoComm 2013, which was held in Orlando, Florida last week. The new projector is capable of generating up to 6,000 lumens of brightness, with 3840 x 2160 WQXGA native resolution and 4K/2K LCD-based technology.

NEC’s product manager of projectors, Richard McPherson, said that the HDBaseT™ technology can significantly bring down the time needed to run bundles of cables to and from multiple projectors.

“Our customers look to us to provide the latest technological advancements to help them get the job done quickly without sacrificing quality,” he said. “They are increasingly turning to HDBaseT-powered components, and we recognise the need to support this technology with our multimedia projectors.”

The technology is powered by the Valens HDBaseT chipset, developed by chip developer, Valens. The company’s vice president of business development, Micha Risling, said, “NEC deciding to adopt the HDBaseT technology represents another key step in HDBaseT becoming the global standard for HD connectivity.”
