NEC Adds Two 55″ Monitors with Only 0.44-Millimeter Bezel

NEC Display today announced the addition of near bezel-less 55″ panels to its UN Series line of displays. The new UN552S and UN552VS have an inactive area (a bezel) of just 0.44 millimeters surrounding an anti-glare, high-haze IPS panel designed for seamless multi-screen configurations, designed for digital signage uses in retail, corporate and broadcast environments. The UN552S and UN552VS video wall panels also feature a full line of commercial-grade features such as enhanced OSD color control, easy content distribution and superior software capabilities.

Each UN552S and VS display is calibrated at the factory for luminance, RGB, white point, uniformity and gamma to ensure each panel matches out of the box. In addition, self-calibration is possible by plugging in an external SpectraView sensor directly into the display — for customers who need to change the color temperature or need to copy settings when setting up a new panel. The UN552S and VS panels also feature best-in-class color control via the on-screen display (OSD), with luminance and color gamut controls, as well as brightness uniformity, hue, saturation and offset. Finally, thanks to an ongoing feedback loop between the SpectraView Engine, the physical panel, internal sensors and look up table settings, NEC says the UN552S and VS are able to maintain a constant brightness for a longer amount of time — ideal for applications in retail, transportation and corporate customers that need 24/7 operation.

The UN552S features 700 cd/m2 of brightness, ideal for retail, corporate, cinema or house of worship use, while the UN552VS features 500 cd/m2 of brightness, suited for applications where max brightness is not needed, such as broadcast and command and control. Like other panels in the UN Series, the UN552S and VS feature improved NDWC capabilities with corner adjustment, uniformity correction and quicker recalibration techniques. The displays also include both DisplayPort and HDMI out connections to daisy chain signals from the internal media player for easy video wall installation and management. The new TileCut function ensures the image does not get cut off when displaying content on non-16:9 video walls.

The UN552S and UN552VS are available beginning in July and here are the details.
