The NEC NP-PA653UL has an RJ-45 LAN connector on the rear panel for connecting to a wired network, as well as that optional wireless MultiPresenter Stick. Built-in HDBaseT enables simplified installations using a single cable for audio, video, and control signals via an Ethernet cable.
For those of you who don’t know, HDBaseT is a standard that appeared a few years back which allows HDMI signals to be run over extremely long lengths. This is done using low-cost CAT5e, CAT6, etc., cabling – the same stuff used for local area networking. Maximum distance over low cost CAT cable is 100 meters! Perfect for office buildings, large classrooms, etc.
There are a number of integrated software applications that allow for complete control. The PA653UL works with Crestron RoomView, AMX Beacon, Extron XTP, PJ Link (primitive, but still worth mentioning), DisplayNote and NaViSet Administrator 2 (NaViSet Administrator 2 is a free software solution that easy administration and management of large display device installations and multi-projector setups).
Depending on which one of these software applications you choose, you’ll enjoy a host of features. Push notifications, browser monitoring, command and control of the projector using a browser, and more. There are so many options you can choose from for advanced networking – this is an IT team’s dream.
