NEC now adds its displays to a growing line-up of HDBaseT-enabled products.

HDBaseT has become a global standard for digital connectivity, and integrating the technology into our new display will help our customers realize significant cost-savings.

The HDBaseT Alliance and NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of LCD display and projector solutions, today announced the company’s new line of HDBaseT options for commercial HD displays (via OPS (Option Slots) and HDBaseT enabled projectors that solves many of the typical cabling challenges professional installers face while on the job.

The HDBaseT technology, powered by the Valens chipset, enables all-in-one connectivity between HD video sources and remote displays through a single 100 meter CAT5e/6 cable that delivers uncompressed high definition video, audio, Ethernet, control signals and up to 100 watts of power.

The combination of the HDBaseT technology and the NEC display is ideal for digital signage projects such as airports and retail centers. Because HDBaseT is already integrated in dozens of devices manufactured by leading AV professionals, connecting to the NEC display is simple. Cable length is no longer an issue because the distance between the source and sink devices (i.e., between the PC and the display) can be up to 100 meters.

“As the awareness and adoption of HDBaseT has risen among A/V professionals, we have seen a parallel rise in demand from our customers for an HDBaseT-enabled display,” said Keith Yanke, Senior Director of Product Marketing, NEC Display Solution of America. “HDBaseT has become a global standard for digital connectivity, and integrating the technology into our new display will help our customers realize significant cost-savings.”

The NEC 55’’ P553, equipped with HDBaseT via the OPS (Option Slot), will be displayed at the HDBaseT Alliance booth at CES. The NEC 55" P553 sets the standard for rugged 24/7 use in the harshest installation environments. LED edge lighting delivers environmental, economic, and aesthetic impact. The LED backlighting technology improves power consumption and allows for a slimmer cabinet depth.

The NEC NP-PA672W, enabled with HDBaseT, will also be displayed at the HDBaseT Alliance booth at CES. The PA672W is the latest professional installation projector in the PA Series lineup equipped with the necessary feature set such as interchangeable lenses, horizontal & vertical lens shift and top of the line video processor required for boardrooms and classrooms. With a brightness of 6700 lumens and HD capabilities the PA672W appeases corporate and higher education user needs.

“Considering NEC joined the HDBaseT Alliance less than a year ago, the fact it is already producing HDBaseT-enabled displays is remarkable and demonstrates the company’s strong commitment to the technology,” said Micha Risling, marketing chair of the HDBaseT Alliance. “The NEC line HDBaseT options is the latest addition to an ever-growing HDBaseT ecosystem of TVs, projectors, A/V receivers for commercial and consumer applications.”

CES attendees can see the new NEC P553 display and PA672W at the Alliance’s booth (LVCC South Hall 1 Booth #20215).
