Other features include ECO Mode technology that NEC claims extends each projector’s lamp life by up to 50%. The PA Series are also equipped with USB ports, integrated RJ45, Wireless LAN and 10W speaker.

  • Image Express Lite enables wired/wireless transmission of an image to the projector without the need for external components
