NEC Scales Content for Faster Set Up

NEC Display Solutions of America has introduced two large-format displays, designed for 24/7 use in video walls.

Both 55″ products (X555UNS and X555UNV) use S-IPS panels and can be used in landscape and portrait orientations. They feature local dimming (direct-LED backlights) and 10-bit colour processing.

Video wall functions include FrameComp – a function that compensates for content lag – and the ability to daisy-chain resolutions up to 2560 x 1440. NEC’s older video wall displays supported 1920 x 1080 daisy-chaining. In addition, Auto TileMatrix can be used to set up a video wall quickly, scaling content from one display to all others.

Pixel-to-pixel distance is 3.5mm, and the displays have an OPS slot. They are built to commercial standards, with a steel chassis, cooling fans and a temperature sensor.

Native resolution is 1920 x 1080. The S-IPS panels provide viewing angles of 178°; a 12ms response time; and 1,200:1 contrast ratio. DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-D, VGA , RS232 and RJ45 inputs are featured. The only difference between the displays is brightness: 500 cd/m² on the X555UNS and 700 cd/m² on the X555UNV.

NEC will begin selling the displays this month, starting at $7,600 (X555UNS) and $5,000 (X555UNV). They will also be available in 2×2 (X555UNS-TMX4P and X555UNV-TMX4P) and 3×3 (X555UNS-TMX9P and X555UNV-TMX9P) bundles.
