Panasonic’s New Display Technology at InfoComm 2016

panasonic-display-0616Panasonic has launched some new displays at InfoComm. The EF1 Series 84” and 75” professional displays are designed for corporate meeting rooms or retail signage and their new flagship VF1H Series display (with a bezel-to-bezel distance of just 0.07’’ (1.8 mm) is to be sued for video walls.

The EF1 Series expands the lineup of entry-level displays to include 84- and 75-inch sizes offering a cost-effective solution for digital signage, or for general use in the office or classroom. The EF1 Series has a built-in USB Media Player and uses an IPS panel for a wide-viewing angle.

VF1H Series is a 700 cd/m2 flagship and features an Ultra-Narrow-Bezel of 0.07’’ (1.8 mm) bezel-to-bezel width and can be mounted in vertical or horizontal configurations. The VF1H Series consumes less energy because of an efficient backlighting and contrast control. It features a single-cable DIGITAL LINK daisy-chain connection that along with our optional modular frame mount and auto-calibration software reduce installation cost and time while adding flexibility. The IPS direct-lit LED panel is easily viewed off-axis and in bright conditions. Anti-Glare (AG) screen-surface treatment effectively reduces reflections from artificial lighting. Built tough for 24/7 operation, the 55-inch display also offers a wide range of optimized viewing modes as well as USB media updates over LAN for self-contained and even more convenient signage solutions. The VF1H Series is expected to be available in late 2016.

BF1 Series is the successor to the LFB70 multi-touch panel display and the BF1 Series (available in 50-, 65-, and 80-inch sizes) has fully featured whiteboard software built in, allowing users to start work instantly with no need for a connected PC. Pages can be created, saved, and shared from the screen, or any media displayed and annotated on via a new easy-access sub-menu bar. Precision 12-point touch control and a new minimized menu bar make it easy to switch inputs and access tools at any time. The BF1 Series offers a wealth of wired connections, including single-cable DIGITAL LINK, delivering media from almost any source device, while content can be displayed together with whiteboard pages in Picture-in-Picture Mode — ideal for web conferencing. The BF1 Series also has a USB Memory Viewer supporting a variety of formats and eliminates the need for a connected PC — just insert a USB memory stick and start presenting.
