5500-lumen Widescreen Advanced Professional Installation Pro


Owner Notes:

NEC's 5500-lumen PA550W is a widescreen, advanced professional installation model that appeases corporate and higher education users. With integrated RJ45, optional high-speed wireless (LAN IEEE 80.11b/g/n) and a multitude of simple-to-use asset management technologies, the PA550W helps users present seamlessly without worrying about their technology. The industry’s first built-in stacking correction capabilities (up to four projectors) allows the projectors to boost an image’s brightness up to 22,000 lumens, which is ideal for larger-sized screens and environments with heavy ambient light. This feature also prevents the complete loss of an image, which can happen when using only one projector.
ECO Mode™ technology helps extend lamp life and lowers power consumption
5500-lumen brightness enhances images for most applications
HQV™ technology delivers superior home theater video processing
Windows Network Projector function simplifies your ability to present from any computer, whether local or remote
Geometric Correction Tool allows you to easily project square images on non-flat screen surfaces without distortion
Complete line of (5) bayonet-style lenses allows for quick and easy lens exchange (Lens does not ship with product)
Stacking correction capabilities (up to four projectors) allows the projectors to boost an image's brightness up to 22,000 lumens
Available as a bundle with lens (NP-PA550W-13ZL)
NaViSet Administrator 2: Free software solution that greatly eases administration and management of larger display device installations
