Munich, 01 November 2013 – NEC Display Solutions Europe has laid out the roadmap for its next generation of Professional (P Series) large format displays, designed to exceed the performance, reliability and affordability expectations of every user. The updated range will bring a host of new benefits including a Human Sensor, Near Field Communication (NFC), remote browser control and myriad of industry-first innovations.
The new NEC MultiSync ® P Series models, available in sizes 40-, 46-, 55-, 70- and 80-inch, are all high-end, full-featured professional displays designed for heavy retail signage, transportation and other mission-critical 24/7 applications. The updated models bring LED backlighting to the high performance commercial-grade LCD panels. This allows for lower power consumption, a slimmer design and reduced weight compared to predecessors.
"Our new P Series sets the standard for professional large format displays. They bring innovations that make the products more environmentally friendly, easier to use and cheaper to install and run," said Thorsten Prsybyl, Section Manager Large Format Displays at NEC Display Solutions Europe.
"NEC Display Solutions remains on the forefront of this evolution and we are constantly looking for ways to make our displays better in every sense. This new range was developed freshly from the ground showing that display innovation has not come to a standstill. Our professional range of large format displays has been providing rock-solid performance in some of the most demanding environments, and now we are taking that to the next level."
One of the innovative new features found in the new P Series is a human sensor, which can be both an energy saver and enabler of creativity. The sensor detects a presence in front of the display and can be used to engage power-saving modes if no-one is present, and can also be configured to change various settings – such as input, volume or brightness – when someone approaches.
The updated range also incorporates an NFC sensor and matching app for Android devices. This will reduce installation cost as displays can be easily configured before they are mounted. Installers simply set the configuration once in the app and then just copy settings on all displays in the install without the displays needing to be connected to power. Maintenance is also simplified as service relevant information can easily be downloaded by just holding a tablet or smartphone to the display, also making failure reporting more convenient for the user. Similarly, a memo function in the OSD can be used to store useful information for users or service staff and browser control is available for configuring and administering displays through a web browser rather than on the screen display.
Installation cost is further reduced by additional capabilities such as an auto Tile Matrix for easy video wall setup and the support for video and signal daisy chaining up to 100 units. This includes LAN daisy chaining with network switching capabilities. Features such as superfast input switching speeds and point zoom enhance the user experience. Three integrated memory banks of the programmable Look-Up-Table (LUT) are available to store different colour calibration settings, saving time and effort during set up for mobile installations or fixed installations with varying brightness or colour temperature requirements.
The combination of LED backlighting, as well as other power and thermal management features ensure that the new P Series displays align with NEC's Green Vision for sustainability and are as eco-friendly as possible.
All the new additions also incorporate an interface extension slot and NEC's OPS option slot, which allows for the integration of single board computers and other option slot products based on the NEC/Intel OPS standard without the need to stow external equipment. The new interface extension slot options offer legacy support of old analogue video signals as well as additional digital inputs.
