The E988 boasts a metal chassis, setting it apart from most plastic-built competitors, ensuring added quality, durability, and resistance to overheating and corrosion. Its extended lifespan also provides a smart investment, yielding a higher return on investment for businesses.

This display offers exceptional visual quality with a high-haze, anti-glare panel that reduces reflections, resulting in a better viewing experience with higher definition. Operating 24/7, it supports uninterrupted content playback, while its landscape and portrait functionality enables seamless adaptation to diverse content and display preferences.

For easy signage purposes, the E988 features a USB player for loading and playing files in sequence, along with an integrated LAN port for convenient network control over IP. This allows administrators to manage displays remotely, enhancing workflow efficiencies.
