NEC Display Solutions of America has launched its new F-Series indoor fine pitch and Q-Series indoor and outdoor direct view LED panels, which it says offer customers a new video wall solution.
The F- and Q-Series, both expected to be available later this month, mark the first NEC Display direct-view LED products to be launched from the company’s acquisition of S[quadrat] earlier this year.
“With the new F- and Q-Series, NEC Display offers a complete [direct-view LED] solution that includes all hardware and services no matter what application customers need,” says Grant Wylie, senior product manager, NEC Display.
“As a major player in the [direct-view LED] market, we’re delivering the crystal-clear, color-accurate image customers want with the value they need, thanks to features like a 80,000-hour lifespan, front and rear serviceability, and a variety of pixel pitch options perfect for customer in retail, command and control, house of worship, theaters, hospitality, corporate lobbies, and more.”
More on the Indoor F-Series (from NEC press release):
The F-Series offers a bright, 16:9 aspect ratio dvLED panel with a tight pixel pitch from as low as 1.2mm for indoor use. With up to 18-bit color processing and the option to add HDR10 capability, the F-Series delivers superior content reproduction with sharp images and deep contrast. In addition, its cabinet dimensions match up with a 55” large format display (LFD), so customers can easily upgrade an LFD video wall with high-end dvLED panels. Because dvLED delivers a brighter image than LCD and projection technologies, it is a perfect choice for customers who need a video wall in bright areas like an atrium or a room with skylights or storefront windows.
“When it comes to video walls, we know customers don’t want any distraction from their displayed content,” Wylie says. “The F-Series delivers a seamless image for customers who don’t want to worry about content and seam interference typically found in traditional LCD video walls. The F-Series also features a factory-calibrated display from bin-matched LEDs to ensure a color-accurate image.”

The F-Series offers nearly 100 percent uptime thanks to a standard redundant power supply and optional redundant scan card allowing redundant signal processing at the dvLED panel and data distribution between the controller and the dvLED panel. This is a key feature for Command and Control customers where maximum uptime is mission-critical, according to NEC.
More on the Outdoor Q-Series (from NEC press release):
Meanwhile, the Q-Series dvLED panel is designed for customers who need a larger display, with a 1:1 aspect ratio panel and a wider pixel pitch starting at 2.84mm to produce seamless images at an attractive price point. Designed for digital signage and digital out of home customers in retail, houses of worship, theater, restaurants/QSR, zoos, and banking, as well as corporate customers looking for displays in lobbies, cafes, and for general information uses, the Q-Series is available in both indoor and outdoor models.
The Outdoor Q-Series dvLED panel features a crystal-clear image even during the day, thanks to its 6000 Cd/m2 brightness, factory color-calibration, and seamless panel design. It delivers a low total cost of ownership thanks to its calibrated front and rear serviceable panels, and 80,000-hour lifespan of about 10 years. In addition, the outdoor model features additional seals to provide an IP 65 dvLED panel that offers protection from the weather.
“With the F- and Q-Series dvLED announcement today, NEC is cementing its place as a market leader in the dvLED market,” Wylie says. “However, we believe in going beyond the product, which is why the F- and Q-Series are part of a complete, end-to-end solution that includes hardware and services for customers who need it.”
