The 4K displays come in 86 and 98in models with 500cd/sqm brightness, designed for digital signage or use in corporate, classroom and retail environments.
The SQ1 series, on show at InfoComm for the first time, features a lightweight, slim design with a bright and efficient panel for strong visibility and 24/7 operation.
Combining high imaging performance with adaptability and outstanding efficiency, the SQ1 series is built for self-contained or networked signage. The two displays include the Intel Smart Display Module (SDM) for improved processing and integration capability.
