NEC Launches New Flagship P Series LED-Backlit LCDs

P402-AVT_HO-1113This week NEC Display Solutions released the latest generation of its flagship P Series commercial-grade displays: the 40-inch P403, 46-inch P463, 55-inch P553 and 70-inch P703 displays. All feature a new thinner chassis (56 percent thinner), LED edge-lit back lights, two expansion slots, Near Field Communication (NFC) capabilities. They also use 33 percent less power than the last generation.

P Series are commercial-grade displays aimed at harsh install environments, including quick-service restaurants, airports, public information areas, healthcare facilities and retail stores. Integrated with internal temperature sensors with self-diagnostics and fan-based technology to prevent overheating. These 1920×1090 displays are spec’d at 700 cd/m2 brightness and are the first with a built-in NFC sensor. A human sensor accessory can be both an energy saver and enabler of creativity.

The displays also support two expansion slots — one with Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) technology and a second slot for additional connectivity.  The OPS slot adheres to the Intel specification for standardizing and simplifying slot-oriented digital signage installations.  The second slot allows for customizable input options.

Inputs include DisplayPort, VGA, HDMI and LAN ports. The displays offer PiP capability, IR lock and can be daisy chained. The P403, P463, P553 and P703 are priced at $1,449, $1,829, $2,699 and $8,399, respectively.

Here are all the specs.
