Samsung highlighted its Color Expert technology for video walls. This new feature will be integrated in all of Samsung’s 2015 video wall displays; it means that these screens will be factory-calibrated to ensure brightness uniformity and lowering set-up time.
As well as calibrated uniformity, Color Expert displays will have an integrated authenticated code module (ACM) and user calibration software, so that users can tune the display to their own preference.
We also heard that Color Expert can be used to manage a display’s white balance, further increasing uniformity across multiple screens. Grey scale calibration is also featured.
Small signage is seeing increasing use, and Samsung was in on the trend. Last year, the company released a pair of 21.5″ screens and a 10.1″ unit (Samsung Shrinks Smart Signage Screens) and was showing them off at DSE. The DB22D-P is a commercial display that can be used up to 16/7, and is intended as a replacement for small static posters. The DB22D-T is identical, but adds touch. The 10.1″ DB10D is intended as a shelf-edge screen or for cash register signage.
These small displays retain all of the functionality of the larger models, such as an embedded media player in the SoC (Smart Signage)
The OMD series was announced late last year (Samsung Takes Smart Signage Outdoors), and was shown off in Las Vegas. These are high-brightness (2,500 cd/m²), high-contrast (5,000:1) displays for semi-outdoor use, such as store windows. They can be weatherproofed with custom enclosures. The finished displays are part of the OMD-W series, while a panel kit for integration in a custom housing is called the OMD-K series. Both come in 46″, 55″ and 75″ sizes, with prices ranging from $3,100 to $11,700.
