Panasonic Shows New 4K Displays at InfoComm
Panasonic Systems Solutions Company is introducing its new 4K professional display portfolio at InfoComm. Panasonic will debut its new EQ1 4K professional display series offering 4K resolution (3840×2160). The EQ1 Series 4K professional display portfolio includes a wide range of display sizes, from 43 to 85 inches. Show attendees will also see the new SQ1 Series 4K professional displays. The SQ1 Series features a lightweight, slim design with a bright and efficient panel. The SQ1 4K displays include the Intel Smart Display Module (SDM) for signage applications.
The EQ1 Series includes six new models of 4K professional displays, which includes 43, 50,55, 65,75, 85- display sizes. The EQ1 Series offers a full 4K portfolio of sizes to fit many signage scenarios. These 4K ultra HD displays offer 350 cd/m2 brightness. The two largest displays (86/75-inch) also feature In-Plane Switching technology, which Panasonic says maintains color accuracy and clear visibility when the screen is viewed off-axis. This new display series presents 4K imaging with a slim depth and stylish narrow bezel design which maximizes the screen area in relation to the display’s physical size. The design offers excellent visibility and enables simple, networkable media presentation, with a built-in signage player that allows video and still-image playback via USB. Single or multiple displays can be monitored and controlled using Panasonic’s Multi-Monitoring and Control Software. This free software includes basic control capabilities, with the ability to expand its function by using Early Warning Software, for networking displays, monitoring device status, operation history and sending alerts should an issue be detected. These displays can be mounted in either portrait or landscape orientation. The EQ1 Series will be available in Autumn 2018.
The new SQ1 Series expands the 4K display lineup to include 86 and 98-inch sizes. The stylish SQ1 4K Series blends high imaging performance with adaptability and outstanding efficiency, and is built for self-contained or networked digital signage or as an office/education/retail communication system. The 4K displays have a built-in USB Media Player, eliminating the need for external devices and reducing cable connections in offline environments, with updates to USB memory devices via LAN when connected to an intranet (ideal for difficult-to-access installations). An IPS panel assures excellent all-round visibility and outstanding picture quality, while the narrow bezel and quality finish enhances any interior space. The slim wall-mounting maximizes visibility with ADA compliance. These displays can also be mounted in either portrait or landscape orientation. The SQ1 4K displays are expected to be available in December 2018.
