Sharp NEC Display Solutions have launched a new Large Format MultiSync ME Series digital signage displays designed for corporate, education and retail environments.
The companies – which formed a joint venture to produce business displays earlier this year – are targeting customers that need clear and vivid UHD content at a cost-conscious price that is integrated with the latest standards.
According to the announcement, a key feature of the ME series displays is the ability to mount the displays in either landscape or portrait orientation that allows end users to display content in a variety of ways and conserve wall space.
They come in four different sizes: 43 inches, 50 inches, 55 inches and 65 inches.
Other features include:
• A full scheduler that allows for programmable daily on/off times
• External control capabilities and full control options via both the LAN and RS232 interfaces
• Full combability with NEC NaVISet Administrator 2 Software and other third-party control systems
• Button lockout functionality and a full metal chassis that makes the displays ideal for hallway signage or welcome signs
“Recognizing that the market is evolving and display needs are changing, we realigned our mainstream product category to meet those dynamic requests,” said Ben Hardy, the senior product manager for large format displays for Sharp NEC Display Solutions.
“Building this new series with the expected quality and modularity of NEC products in mind, we are thrilled to provide our customers with the high-quality, competitive and trustworthy display solutions they have come to expect. We are eager to continue offering products that fit their specific needs while maintaining our unparalleled support.”
All of the displays accept the Intel Smart Display Module Small or Large through a mechanical and electrical design for all-in-one intelligence and interoperability in a small form factor setting, allowing for implementation of Intel processor-based PCs and other peripheral devices without having to mount external devices or run extensive cabling.
The ME Series also allows for the optional implementation of the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 directly into each display. That will be available in the second quarter of 2021.
