Panasonic Intros New Digital Signage Displays, Including Its First Video Wall Display

panasonic-lvf50-0612Panasonic last week announced three new lines of professional LCD displays, including the LED 55” LFV50, the company’s first video wall product, the 70” and 80” LED LF50 Series, and the LF5, an entry-level digital signage LCD display.
Panasonic’s first LED video wall display features an ultra-narrow bezel for near seamless video wall installation. The 55” LFV50 display offers 800 cd/m2 brightness, a 5.3-millimeter gap between displays when mounted bezel-to-bezel and RS232C I/O control. Content can be displayed on the individual screens or shown across multiple displays. Panasonic says the display also features lower power consumption via an automatic dimmer that reacts to surrounding ambient light. The displays are designed to work in both portrait and landscape orientations. Users can daisy-chain the displays via DVI-D for easy digital loop-through of the video signal for up to a 5×5 video wall. The TH-55LFV50 will ship in November 2012.
LF50 Series
At 70” and 80”, the LF50 Series is the largest LED LCD Panasonic has ever offered. These displays offer 700 cd/m2 brightness and SLOT 2.0 architecture. It can be used in portrait and landscape orientations, and also features a space-saving design with a thinner depth than previous LF Series models. The TH-70LF50 and TH-80LF50 will be shipping in Q4 2012.
LF5 Series
Along with Full-HD resolution and a wide viewing angle, the LF5 Series features  a slim bezel of only 0.7 inches (18 millimeters) in width, 500 cd/m2 brightness, external control (RS-232C) and VESA mounting. The TH-42LF5 (42″ model) and TH-47LF5 (47″ model) will be available in July 2012
