NEC Display Solutions of America has announced three new models to its commercial-grade V Series large-screen line. The 46-inch V462 will replace the V461, while the 46-inch V462-AVT and 65-inch V651-AVT with integrated tuners are new to the product line. All three are geared toward digital signage.
Designed for extended use in retail, restaurants, indoor venues, training facilities and corporate boardrooms, the V Series includes full 1080p high-definition resolution, built-in low-profile 10W speakers, and a built-in expansion slot that allows for seamless integration of NEC accessories, third-party components and Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) products. In addition, a new DVI loop-through option allows customers to pass a digital signal from one device to the next, eliminating the need for additional hardware, such as a DVI daisy chain-module.
The V462, V462-AVT and V651-AVT also include NEC’s TileMatrix technology for building video walls up to 100 displays, a real-time scheduler to power the display on or off at a specific time, and remote diagnostics to monitor and control the display from an off-site location.
“The next generation in our V Series lineup aims to provide better connectivity with added features that will help simplify and future-proof digital signage projects,” said Rachel Karnani, product manager for large-screen displays at NEC Display Solutions, in a statement. “The added NTSC/ATSC tuner in the 46-inch and 65-inch sizes will also enable customers to install the product where high-definition broadcast capabilities are desired.”
The V462, V462-AVT and V651-AVT will be available in July 2011 at a minimum advertised price of $1,149, $1,249 and $5,399, respectively, according to NEC. The displays ship with a three-year parts and labor warranty, including the backlight.
