NEC pushes the limit of video wall experiences

Retailers, quick service restaurants and leisure facilities among those to benefit from the enhanced MultiSync® UN551S and MultiSync® UN551VS displays


Munich, 26 August, 2016NEC Display Solutions Europe today added two video wall displays, the MultiSync® UN551S and MultiSync® UN551VS, to its line-up of video wall solutions. The new 55-inch models feature the latest developments in reliability, homogeneous image playback and ease of installation. These displays are ideal for creating large digitised visual surfaces in retail environments, public areas and quick service restaurants, where dynamic viewing experiences are essential to engage audiences.

The UN551S and UN551VS both feature a flat panel surface from edge to edge, enabling cohesive multi-screen alignment, and delivering a digital canvas without protruding borders. This allows for an extremely homogeneous image across the multiple screens, offering an unhindered viewing experience with very minimal image interruption of just 0.9mm per screen.

The two display models use S-IPS panel technology, which provides great picture quality and excellent colour reproduction in both landscape and portrait orientation, as well as at extreme viewing angles. Thanks to the brightness of both displays, businesses can share messages that will be well received with effortless readability. The UN551VS features a display brightness of 500 cd/m² and is well suited for controllable ambient light situations. The higher brightness level of 700 cd/m² featured in the UN551S serves the majority of applications where ambient light is high and ensures longer brightness outputs of a predefined value.

Tobias Augustin, Senior Product Manager for Large Format Displays at NEC Display Solutions Europe said: “When it comes to video walls, we know that an enhanced viewing experience is key. This is why we have pushed the capabilities of our video wall technology with an advanced set of intelligent features. The new UN551S and UN551VS are perfect solutions for retail, broadcasting, food service, corporate, and all public space display applications.

Other benefits of NEC’s new MultiSync® UN551S and MultiSync® UN551VS include:

  • Ease of installation – easy setup and upgrade of the video wall solution using the fully integratable high-performance OPS Slot-in-PC, without the need for external cables or devices
