NEC NP-PA550W Overview

The NEC NP-PA550W Professional Installation Projector is one of NEC's stackable projectors. No, you don't stack them on top of each other. You can place up to four of them side by side in a row to project one luminously bright and perfectly aligned image. With four NP-PA550Ws that's an image. That's an incredible 22,000 lumens bright. It's ideal for larger sized screens. The NP-PA550W can project a 500" (12,700mm) image or where there is a great deal of ambient light. This feature also prevents the complete loss of an image, which can happen when using only one projector.

The NP-PA550W offers much more, however. Its network ready thanks to an RJ45 jack for wired networks. Each projector has its own HTTP page and a group of projectors can be managed from a single remote location. You can even have a projector email you a status report when certain events occur, like when the lamp is nearing the end of its life.

Unlike many projectors the NP-PA550W is backed up by a full line of bayonet-style lenses. Capture your audience's attention with this bright and bold projector. NEC's 5500 lumens PA550W is an advanced professional installation model that appeases corporate and higher education users.

Lens Not Included

Flexibility Enables Performance

Integrated Device Technology HQV is a high-performance video processing/scaling system designed for computer signals as well as standard or high-definition video. The technology produces superior video processing using pixel-based, motion-adaptive de-interlacing to remove undesirable motion artifacts typical of interlaced signals. This processing creates life-like images in applications such as video conferencing
Bright enough for most applications: 5500 lumens
Geometric correction tool allows you to project on spheres, cylinders and more

Integrated Networking and Asset Management

Integrated RJ45 connection for quick connection to the LAN (10/100 base-T capability) Integrated high-speed wireless LAN IEEE 802.11b/g
Desktop control allows you to securely transmit information wirelessly to the projector from a docking station or PC in another room
Image Express Utility (IEU 2.0; compatible with Windows or Mac operating systems) dedicated projector software provides wired and wireless data transmission via peer-to-peer or over the network
Broadcast mode allows you to send information from one computer to several projectors
Windows Network Projector function within Windows Vista connects directly to networked projectors without the need for additional proprietary software
Windows Remote Desktop function allows you to control a networked computer by connecting a USB mouse and keyboard directly to the projector's USB input
Windows Network Drive function displays multimedia files (.jpeg, .bmp, .png, .mpeg2 or .wmv9) in the Windows shared folder on a local network using the Viewer function-all without bringing your PC into the conference room
Windows Media Connection function displays multimedia files (.mpeg2, .jpeg or .wmv9) stored on the Windows Media Connect server or a local network using the Viewer function-all without bringing your PC into the conference room

Security Features Provide Peace of Mind

Cabinet control lock setting enables user to deactivate buttons on cabinet to prevent unwanted changes to projector settings
Logo lock restricts changes to logo saved in projector memory
Password protection restricts unauthorized use of projector
Email notification informs the system administrator when the lamp approaches the end of its useful life

Lens Shift

Enjoy greater installation flexibility with up to 60% vertical lens shift and +/- 30% horizontal lens shift

Tilt-Free Installation

The NP-PA550W can be rotated freely (360°) in order to point up or down depending on the installation requirements

Designed with the Environment in Mind

Extended lamp life with Eco-Mode technology increases lamp life up to 4000 hours, while lowering power consumption
Power management enables projector to automatically turn off when an incoming signal is not detected from any of the inputs
Auto Power On via the RGB (15-pin) input connector when a signal is detected from a computer
Carbon savings meter calculates the positive effects of operating the projector in Eco-Mode, which is encouraged by an optional message at startup. A green Eco-Mode button on the remote control makes the switch easy
Quick start (3 to 4 seconds) lets you begin presenting in seconds while quick shutdown (immediate power off with no cooling required after shutdown) ensures efficient energy usage
Sleep timer can be set to automatically turn off the projector at set countdown times
Low power consumption (0.2W in standby mode) minimizes energy costs
Direct power off provides instantaneous shutdown of the projector

4000 Hour Filter Life

NEC is committed to designing its products to provide long lifecycles. This commitment even extends to components within its products, including the improved filter. This virtually maintenance-free filter reduces the frequency at which cleaning is required, thereby decreasing your total cost of ownership

Edge Blending

This function seamlessly blends multiple projected images to display a single high resolution image


This function allows two sources to be displayed on the screen at one time in either a picture-in-picture or side-by-side configuration

Built-In Stacking Correction

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

Built-In Wall Color Correction Presets

These provide for adaptive color tone correction to display properly on non-white surfaces


DICOM Simulation enables users in medical environments to display accurate diagnostic images

Get Connected with a Wide Selection of Inputs

Dual computer inputs ensure quick switching between presentations
Four audio inputs (two mini stereo [Comp1 & Comp2], R/L [RCA - shared by video sources] and HDMI) make it easy to add sound to enhance your presentations

Remote Control

Easy control from remote allows you to adjust lamp mode, aspect ratio, volume and image all with the touch of a button

HDMI Input

HDMI w/HDCP for connecting to high-definition sources such as Blu-ray players, cable boxes, satellite receivers and personal computers

Variable Audio-Out

This input enables the remote control to be used to adjust volume of self-powered external speakers that are connected to the projector. In standby mode, the audio-out stays active, allowing the last input used to pass to the self-powered external speakers

USB Viewer

In instances when you'd prefer to leave your laptop behind for a presentation, the projector can deliver a solution. Using the presentation conversion software included with your projector, simply place your file onto a USB drive and plug it into the projector's USB port. This allows you to display images stored as .jpgs from optional USB memory


This input provides PA Series models with expanded connectivity with advanced technology

Input Panel Cover

This optional accessory creates a clean look for your installation, while hiding signal cables and the power cord

Geometric Correction

Projecting an image isn't confined to a standard flat screen or wall with the NEC NP-PA550W. Geometric correction allows these models to project an image on spheres, cylinders, corner angles and many more non-standard surfaces

Virtual Remote (DDC/CI)

Used over the VGA cable, you can control the projector directly from a computer without the need for additional control cables


Enhanced keystone correction allows for horizontal, vertical and diagonal image correction for aligned images even when the projector is set up at an angle to the screen
