Sharp NEC Display Solutions, today announced its new Large Format MultiSync ME Series digital signage displays. These stand-alone displays provide corporate, education and retail environments with NEC quality while also providing a cost-conscious digital signage display integrated with the latest standards.
One key feature of the ME Series is the option to mount the display in either landscape or portrait orientation. This allows for flexibility to display content in different ways, depending on the wall space or needs of the customer. These displays were also built for extended 18/7 operations and contain a full scheduler that allows for programmable daily on/off times if necessary. The ME Series was built with external control capabilities in mind by allowing full control options via both the LAN and RS232 interfaces. This allows for full compatibility with NEC NaViSet Administrator 2 software as well as other third-party control systems. With button lockout functionality and a full metal chassis, these displays are ideal for hallway signage in a higher education facility, a welcome sign in a corporate office or a scheduling board in a house of worship, among a variety of other applications.
Part of this evolution for NEC includes increasing the modular capabilities of the product line by offering the ability to enhance its displays through multiple integrated professional technologies. All MultiSync ME Series displays accept the Intel Smart Display Module Small or Large through a mechanical and electrical design for all-in-one intelligence and interoperability in a small form factor setting. This allows for seamless implementation of Intel processor-based PCs and other peripheral devices without having to deal with the hassles of mounting external devices or running video or audio cabling. On top of this, the ME Series expands on the success of earlier display lineups by allowing for the optional implementation of the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 directly into each display (available Q2 2021).
The ME Series will start shipping Q1 2021.
