The NEC NP-PA653UL is 4K capable! We’ll be seeing a lot more of this in these commercial-grade projectors over the coming years. With such large displays, the 4K feature will help make presentations and other content look extra sharp and impressive. With a 4K UHD player, you can project documentaries, engineering drawings, and other high resolution content. This is a pixel shifter – it’s not true 4K, but looks pretty close. It’s got a remarkable image when projecting 4K content.
Now, your other content that doesn’t come from a 4K UHD player/disk will have some limitations. When projecting 4K content from a computer, your image will be only as good as the resolution of the display. I’ve got an iMac that does HD (1920 x 1080), and an Ideapad (word processing laptop that can’t do anything sophisticated). That laptop has a 1366 x 768 display. That’s more pixels than standard HD (1280 x 720), but still a far cry from 4K.
Since you’re reading about a 4K capable projector, it’s likely that now, or in the near future, you see a need for using a high resolution in your applications. There are a number of industries where high resolution is important – universities, engineering, science and architecture, or anywhere that there’s “modeling.”
You’ll likely have 4K displays for these applications, but how do you achieve 4K when projecting presentations, photos, and videos shot on a 4K-enabled device such as an iPhone, or tablet? There are a few options – the MultiPresenter Stick, and projecting content from a USB drive. That eliminates the issue of display resolution. I talk about PC-Free Presenting on the following page.
