PANASONIC ANNOUNCES THREE PROFESSIONAL LCD/LED DISPLAY SOLUTIONS
FOR DIGITAL SIGNAGE, LARGE VENUES
New Offering Now Includes Video Wall and Large Format LED LCDs
Secaucus, NJ, June 13, 2012 – Panasonic, a provider of professional display and digital signage solutions, today announced three new lines of professional LCD displays, including the LED 55” LFV50, the company’s first video wall product, the 70” and 80” LED LF50 Series, and the LF5, an entry-level digital signage LCD display. With these additions, Panasonic now offers one of the most comprehensive selections of display products, suitable for nearly every professional application. Panasonic’s professional LCD displays are distinguished by high brightness, slim design, low power consumption, light weight and a wide range of professional features.
Panasonic’s first LED video wall display features an ultra-narrow bezel for near seamless video wall installation. The 55” LFV50 display delivers stunning picture quality with 800 cd/m2 brightness, even in well-lit areas, making it ideal for a multitude of digital signage, public information and command & control applications for use in transportation hubs, retail centers, corporate lobbies and more. Content can be displayed on the individual screens or shown across multiple displays. It also features lower power consumption via an automatic dimmer that reacts to surrounding ambient light. When mounted bezel-to-bezel, the displays’ screen-to-screen distance measures 5.3 mm, which is smaller than available competitive displays in the same category. The displays are designed to work in both portrait and landscape orientations. Users can daisy-chain the displays via DVI-D for easy digital loop-through of the video signal for up to a 5x5 video wall, and features RS232C I/O control. The TH-55LFV50 will ship in November 2012.
At 70” and 80”, the LF50 Series is the largest LED LCD Panasonic has ever offered. The 700 cd/m2 t displays are ideal for customers looking for a bright, digital signage solution with that “wow” factor. With SLOT 2.0 architecture, the LF50 offers the expandability to run even the most robust software to meet diverse customer needs in such applications as showrooms, retail, transportation terminals and auditoriums. The LF50 Series can be used in portrait and landscape orientations, and also features a space-saving design with a thinner depth than previous LF Series models. Its light weight also makes it ideal for ceiling-suspension for greater installation flexibility.TH-70LF50 and TH-80LF50 will be shipping in Q4 2012.
Along with Full-HD resolution and a wide viewing angle, the LF5 Series features a slim bezel only 0.7 inches (18mm) in width, 500 cd/m2 brightness, external control (RS-232C) and VESA mounting, and displays crisp, clear images even in bright places. Both the 42” and 47” models are excellent entry-level devices for those needing a reliable and rugged display for a simple digital signage application. TH-42LF5 and TH-47LF5 will be available in July 2012
