NEC launches P and V Series displays powered by Raspberry Pi25 January 2017
NEC Display Solutions Europe has introduced the P and V Series of professional MultiSync large format displays for digital signage as well as presentation use.
The new displays support the NEC Open Modular intelligence (OMi) platform, enabling the creation of tailor-made solutions for signage. Scalable computing power such as Raspberry Pi compute modules or Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) Slot-in PCs can be embedded into the displays to create a fully integrated solution.
The P and V Series line-ups each consist of three models, ranging in size from 40 to 55in (P404, P484, P554 and V404, V484, V554). They are suited to installations in retail, leisure and museum environments, for corporate signage solutions, passenger information, quick service restaurants and all other public spaces.
The V Series features a display brightness of 500 cd/sqm, providing readability under common ambient light conditions. The higher 700 cd/sqm brightness level of the P Series, guarantees readability in applications where ambient light is high. Both Series use an anti-glare surface to reduce reflections effectively.
Tobias Augustin, senior product manager large format displays at NEC Display Solutions Europe commented: “Many industries today are looking for ways to enhance their digital signage solutions and use more advanced applications. The P and V Series’ modular expansion feature gives them a head start in achieving that. Future ready, the displays give companies the flexibility to upgrade the power of the displays at any time by seamlessly integrating one of NEC’s options for OPS Slot-in PCs, Raspberry Pi compute modules or signal interfaces for content feed and computing.”
The MultiSync P and V Series also delivers enhanced imaging performance via its SpectraView Engine, a colour stabilisation solution which for flagship P Series allows full control of brightness, colour, gamma and uniformity for precise and reliable images. Additionally, the combination of high end colour performance with extreme viewing angles driven by hardware calibratable 12 bit Look Up Tables (LUT) enable viewers to benefit from consistently accurate rendering of images such as branding.
The new NEC P and V Series large format displays will be on show at ISE on stand: 5-R24.
