NEC Display Solutions unveils multi-touch large format displays for reliable use in busy environments

phpUhC6eeAMMunich, 13 October, 2014 – NEC Display Solutions Europe has announced the addition of innovative ShadowSense™ touch technology to five displays in its Professional (P) Series large format range available in sizes from 40- to 80-inches. The displays bring the high performance, brightness and feature set that customers expect from NEC’s flagship large format range together with up to six simultaneous touch points for multi-touch applications.

Unlike other optical systems, ShadowSense™ touch technology uses high performance sensors, which means it works in bright ambient light conditions and delivers optimum performance, stability and accuracy. This makes the displays ideal for around-the-clock usage in busy environments that require reliable multi-touch technology. A key use of the displays is for interactive retail signage, way finding or self-service kiosks in shopping centres, fast-foodrestaurants, airports, cinema complexes and more. Additionally, in the education and corporate sectors the displays are a natural fit for meeting or classrooms requiring an interactive whiteboard to drive engagement and participation.

“Consumers are increasingly touch focused – from our smartphones and tablets through to interactive whiteboards in meeting rooms and self-service kiosks in fast-food restaurants and leisure venues. This factor is rapidly driving touch functionality in the digital display market,” said Daniela Dexheimer, Product Manager Solutions at NEC Display Solutions Europe. “Our new P Series large format displays incorporate ShadowSense™ touch technology for multi-touch capabilities that businesses can rely on to provide accurate results 24/7.”

The displays are built with an extremely robust design including full-tempered protective glass. An anti-reflective coating delivers optimum readability in bright lighting conditions whilst reliable results are guaranteed thanks to the displays’ ability to cope with wear and scratches. The NEC ShadowSense™ touch displays will allow fine tuning of the touchscreen parameters to suit specific customer requirements and application uses.

Users can integrate various OPS modules to enhance the flexibility of the touch displays, as well as secure future functionality through the ability to upgrade the power of the display at any time, without the need for external cables or devices. Plus, the Plug & Play feature for all major operation systems means no calibration or driver installation is required.

In line with NEC’s Green Vision, the displays offer a power saving mode, and can be programmed to ‘wake up’ on touch input for further power management.

Furthermore, users can perform automatic functional tests to determine if there are any problems with the touch display, for full of peace of mind that they will continue performing around the clock.

The NEC P403 SST, P463 SST and P553 SST large format displays are available from end of October 2014, and the P703 SST and P801 SST will be available from December 2014.
