NEC says the addition of the 40-inch X401S, which falls within its super-slim X Series specialty line, gives its dealers a new size category with which to work during the project planning stage. It complements 46- and 55-inch models in the series.
NEC’s X401S features LED backlighting for a lightweight design and minimal 1.7-inch depth. The company says the display includes Intel’s Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) slot, an industry-wide standardization designed to simplify the installation, use and maintenance of digital signage. Users receive full connectivity including DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI-D, as well as remote management through the Network Control and Communication tools. Ethernet connectivity provides email notifications to the administrator, while RS-232 connectivity enables multi-display control and daisy chain capabilities to simplify display management.
NEC says the reliable display allows 24/7 operation with advanced thermal protection, internal cooling fans and a sealed panel design to accommodate the most formidable digital signage industry requirements. Additionally, the X401S-PC option provides a complete bundled product for customers that need a professional-grade display and computer to source content.
