PA803UL / PA703UL

Powerful laser installation projectors equipped to take on the most demanding integration projects

The World’s First Filter-free Laser Projector using LCD Technology

Filter-free Structure with NEC’s Original Cooling System

High dustproof performance is achieved by NEC’s proprietary sealed jet impingement cooling structure. Due to its excellent dustproof performance, this projector does not have the cumbersome filters that ordinary LCD projectors require. The new laser-based LCD projector offers better TCO (total cost of ownership) with less maintenance.

 A Long-life Laser Diode is Provided in the Light Module
Advanced laser technology delivers a reliable light source up to 20,000 hours.

Maintains the Set Brightness for a Long Time
The projector is equipped with a “constant brightness mode” that detects changes in brightness due to aging and automatically adjusts project with stable brightness for a long time.

Risk Group 2 Saves You Installation and Operation Effort
Because of Risk Group 2 compliance based on the projector safety standards, no prescribed safety precautions are necessary.

Excellent Ease of Installation and Functionality in Various Uses and Applications

Multi-screen Function

Multi-display capabilities and tiling technologies are integrated. The projector is also equipped with multiple digital input and HDBaseT output terminals that can connect multiple projectors in a digital daisy chain. These cutting-edge built-in functions produce a beautiful 4K high-resolution image using 4 projectors and various picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture configurations.

Edge Blending
This function seamlessly blends multiple projected images to display a single high-resolution image.
Optional Lenses with Peripheral Motorised Focus Features and Advanced Dust-proof Construction
Three types of optional lenses for the NP40ZL, NP41ZL and NP43ZL are available as dust proof lenses with motorised zoom and focus and a memory function. A selection of these lenses with wide vertical and horizontal lens shift and control code emulation are available, guaranteeing hassle-free installation and replacement of existing installation projectors. The newly added ultra short throw lens of the NP44ML can eliminate space challenges with shorter projection distances (such as 100″ at only 0.7 m distance). The NP40ZL, NP41ZL and NP44ML lenses are also equipped with peripheral motorised focus, and focus adjustment is possible in two stages by the centre and the periphery, which offers excellent image quality.
* After installing the NP44ML on the projector, be sure to secure it to the projector using the support kit (NP01LK) sold separately.

Highly Flexible Installation Options with 360 ° Positioning in any Direction
This projector can be installed universally at any angle. Tilt-free, roll-free and portrait installations are supported. The projector can be rotated freely (360°) to point up or down depending on the installation requirements and can be rotated and installed on its side to create a portrait image.

A High-definition Design to Meet the Era of High-resolution Content and Devices

NEC’s Unique High-definition Functionality with the 4th Generation of “SweetVision” for 4K Content
The 4th generation of “SweetVision” supports 4K 60 Hz input signals and has been upgraded to support HDR10 and Rec.2020 signal. It offers a high definition image by raising the contrast in the boundary parts of an image by using the “Craik-O’Brien-Cornsweet effect”.
Supports High-definition Processing of Both Digital and Analogue Inputs
10-bit high-definition signal processing is possible with all digital and analogue inputs. An image can be projected with an excellent contrast of 1024 gradations and over 1 billion colours in 4K images.

Support for 4K Input
The HDMI and HDBaseT input terminals support up to 4K video for display of ultrahigh resolution video.

Multiple Input Terminals for HDMI and DisplayPort and Input and Output Terminals for HDBaseT

Built-in HDBaseT ( In/out )

Simplify your installations with HDBaseT, which is optimised for video applications and supports uncompressed full HD digital video, audio, Ethernet, power and various control signals. With only a single cable (up to 100 m) to run, infrastructure and labour costs are reduced, installations are significantly easier, and there is no cable clutter to manage. With uncompressed HD video support, images have never been more stunning.

Digital Inputs

Among the PA Series’ wide selection of inputs are dual HDMI with HDCP and DisplayPort with HDCP for connecting to high-definition sources such as Blu-ray players, cable boxes, satellite receivers and personal computers.
