Panasonic launches ultra-thin bezel videowalls for digital signage14 December 2015
Panasonic has announced a new HD LED videowall display series, equipped with what is claimed to be the industry’s narrowest bezel.
Aimed at digital signage applications in public spaces with high ambient light levels (as well as the rental and staging market), the TH-55LFV60W and TH-55LFV6W displays are due to launch this month and January 2016 respectively.
The LFV60 has a brightness of 700 cd/sqm is finished with a glossy anti-reflection treatment and is aimed for applications like fashion retail; it complements the existing TH-55LFV70 which has the same brightness and treatment.
The LFV6 has a brightness of 500 cd/sqm and comes with an anti-glare treatment. Thanks to the industry’s narrowest bezel of 3.5mm, video wall images on both are virtually seamless. The videowall also has a wide viewing angle of 178⁰, thanks to an IPS panel.
The new video wall displays are a replacement of the current 55LFV5/LF50. The new models come with increased reliability, with the capability for 27/4 operation and an integrated failover/failback function.
Each has a multi-venue optimal image mode so that integrators can choose the settings most appropriate for the type of installation. Users can enhance colour, contrast and detail clarity to maximise the attention of the audience, visitor or customer.
Enrique Robledo, marketing manager at Panasonic, said: “The upgrades to the displays are what makes this new videowall so impressive. The brilliant picture quality along with high reliability makes the videowall suitable for a range of signage applications, for example, public spaces, control rooms, retail installations or conference centres.”
For ease of operation, the videowall has an integrated USB player; when combined with multi-monitoring and control software, it is possible to change the contents of the USB remotely via a LAN connection.
