BenQ Adds New SV500 Public Information Display

BenQ_SV500-0914BenQ America just launched a new 50” digital signage monitor, dubbed the SV500, that’s spec’d at 400 nits of brightness and for videowalls up to 10×10 units. Integrated with BenQ’s Multiple Display Administrator (MDA), the SV500 is a native 1920x1080p LCD with an LED-backlit panel that can be used in both portrait and landscape modes, has a slim-bezel and includes VGA and DVI ports.

Using USB, the SV500 allows operators to insert content-loaded thumb drives directly into the panel’s USB port to access files or enable direct playback — displaying both audio and video without the need for any additional cabling, software, or accessories. To deliver increased environmental and functional benefits, the SV500 allows administrators and IT managers to perform maintenance via BenQ’s MDA — enabling content scheduling, on/off powering and remote monitoring and control — regardless of system configuration. BenQ says the MDA also works in real time; tracking each panel’s voltage use and temperature to protect panels and automatically send email alerts should anomalies arise.

The SV500 is available now at a list of $1,599 and full specs are here.
