NEC Launches Its First HDBaseT-Enabled Projector Powered by Valens Chipset

| June 12, 2013

NEC_logoNEC Display Solutions of America today released its new commercial projector that incorporates the HDBaseT™ technology to enable the transmission of uncompressed HD video over distances up to 100 meters via a single CAT5e/5 cable. Powered by the Valens HDBaseT chipset, HDBaseT enables whole-home and commercial distribution of uncompressed HD multimedia content over a single cable.

The 6000-lumen NEC NP-PA602U is on display at InfoComm 2013 (NEC Display Solutions Booth No. 1801 and HDBaseT Alliance Booth No. 2889) from June 12-14, 2013 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

NEC Display Solutions becomes the latest leading manufacturer of projectors for commercial applications to integrate the Valens chipset. The efficiency and reduced cabling costs the HDBaseT technology provides are significant to professional installers and systems integrators.

“The HDBaseT technology can reduce the hours, even days, previously required to run bundles of cables to and from multiple projectors, and saving time means saving money,” said Richard McPherson, Sr. Product Manager of Projectors at NEC Display Solutions. “Our customers look to us to provide the latest technological advancements to help them get the job done quickly without sacrificing quality. They are increasingly turning to HDBaseT-powered components, and we recognize the need to support this technology with our multimedia projectors.”

“NEC deciding to adopt the HDBaseT technology represents another key step in HDBaseT becoming the global standard for HD connectivity,” said Micha Risling, vice president of marketing and business development for Valens. “For proof, anyone needs only to visit the enormous display of HDBaseT-enabled projectors, displays and other AV components available to professionals and consumers at the HDBaseT Alliance booth during InfoComm 2013.”

  •     4K/2K LCD-based technology with 3840×2160 WQXGA native resolution
