NEC Display Solutions says that it will showcase a comprehensive portfolio of display and projection systems at ISE, with solutions including LCD public and desktop displays, LED modules, projectors and software applications.
Conference room technology will be given special emphasis. NEC will be presenting a new projector series from the fixed-installation field which will reach the market in the course of the coming year. The P-series models can be positioned flexibly thanks to their lens shift and wide zoom lens functions and, with their networking features, NEC says they can be integrated easily into existing IT infrastructures. A USB viewer for images, video clips, PowerPoint presentations or PDF documents allows presentations to be made directly without complex configuration.
Designed for large rooms such as halls and auditoriums, the PA-series professional LCD installation projectors and the PX-series DLP models (1-chip, dual lamp systems) will be introduced. They offer brightness of up to 6,000 and 8,000 lumens respectively as well as, for the first time, WUXGA resolution (1,920 x 1,200 pixels). In addition, NEC Display Solutions will demonstrate 3-chip DLP solutions for high-end applications.
In the area of digital and retail signage, NEC’s main focus will be on LED technology. The MultiSync X551UN, a 55-inch public display with LED backlight technology, will be on show for the first time. It is said to be particularly suited to video wall installations since LEDs offer more even illumination over the entire screen surface than conventional CCFL backlights. Visitors will also see the new high-end models NEC MultiSync X461S and X551S, each with LED backlighting.
In addition, to simplify the integration of expansion modules, NEC will be showing displays with OPS (X461S, X551S and X551UN) and OPS based PCs. The new OPS (Open Pluggable Specification) industry standard was developed in collaboration with Intel.
A video wall solution will be presented in a control room scenario using NEC MultiSync X462UN monitors in combination with the video wall software Hiperwall. Hiperwall allows individual content such as images from different surveillance cameras or operating status information from a large industrial plant to be freely positioned, enlarged or scaled down.
A quick-serve restaurant display environment will show what customer information could look like in the field of catering. Menus on offer can be presented on small video wall installations made up of NEC MultiSync X461UNV public displays. As a supplementary source of information, NEC MultiSync X431BT “BarType” monitors can inform customers about daily specials and promotions. NEC says that their slim design makes them extremely flexible for a large number of installation types in places that have previously been difficult to access such as pillars or shelves.
Other featured products include the ultra short-throw U-series projectors combined with interactive whiteboards. The 3D-ready models allow presentations in the most limited of space thanks to the short distance of less than 25 cm between projector and projection surface
