NEC launches new 55in videowall displays4 November 2015
NEC Display Solutions Europe has added two large-format displays to its 24/7 videowall solutions portfolio. The NEC MultiSync X555UNS and X555UNV are designed for applications such as retail advertising and digital-out-of-home, where enhanced visual experiences are valued.
The two 55in models come with an ultra-narrow bezel, with 3.5mm between the displays in a videowall set-up. The displays use S-IPS panels, which deliver superior picture quality and excellent colour reproduction at off-axis viewing angles in both landscape and portrait orientation.
The displays use local backlight dimming to dynamically adjust to the displayed content: darker areas of the image will get driven by a dimmer backlight and lighter content may locally drive the backlights to their full capabilities. Ultimately the user benefits from higher contrast ratios and a more vivid overall image performance.
Tobias Augustin, product manager large format displays at NEC Display Solutions Europe, commented: “Videowalls in retail environments have an immense impact on the retail experience – they can inspire and guide shoppers during the in-store visit and ultimately encourage sales. Ensuring a high-quality user experience is key, but retailers also need to know they can easily manage a videowall that will create a good return on investment. NEC’s expanding and diversified portfolio reflects our understanding of these business needs.”
Due to a set of intelligent features, the displays are easy to install and operate, and guarantee reliable 24/7 performance. The LED backlight technology delivers low power consumption and longer backlight lifetime. The models feature NEC’s thermal management technology, including automated monitoring and fan control, to ensure stable and reliable operation. Thanks to OPS slot technology, customers can easily upgrade the displays at any time without the need for external cables or devices, which ensures investment security and futureproof operation.
The NEC MultiSync X555UNS videowall display will be available this month, and the X555UNV display will join the line-up in December.
