Vestel introduces the EL32+ FHD signage display, making fully featured professional small-screen displays more affordable for retail, corporate and hospitality.
Vestel, Langley: With the commercial display market awash with screens 43″ and larger, the small-screen choice for retailers, hotel foyers, leisure facilities and healthcare signage has been limited. Vestel has filled that void with the launch of the EL32+; a 32″ small-screen FHD display with system-on-chip technology, 24/7 operation and Vestel’s signature value and long-term reliability.
“Customers looking for small screen displays for simple signage or more complex use in smaller premises often repurpose TV screens for the role,” comments Tim Matthews, Senior Product Manager at Vestel. “That is fraught with issues as TVs require a separate CMS system, won’t have useful features such as signal failover, and will ultimately suffer screen burn or similar issues with extended usage.”
“The new EL32+ marries our robust, high-brightness always-on capable screen technology with a high-speed Android system-on-chip and packs this into a compact full-HD 32″ format,” adds Tim.
This contemporary screen with a narrow bezel and shallow mounting depth offers 450 cd/m2 brightness, automatic pixel shifting to reduce the chance of screen burn even if on 24/7, and a host of content inputs including network, USB, and HDMI 2.0. USB Autoplay simplifies photo and video content display and the SoC software includes no-signal detection that can be set to automatically show your default banner or search for other content.
The quad-core SoC allows the user to access both offline local and cloud-based content and incorporates a comprehensive Scheduler enabling time-based content management and power-on/off times. For solution providers/integrators creating bespoke HTML5-based or Android content management systems, the SoC system includes APIs for CMS development and allows the end-user to access the huge range of control and status commands available within the displays system.
“Vestel is Europe’s largest display manufacturer,” adds Tim. “Our economies of manufacturing scale mean lower entry price points for professional display technologies across our range. Businesses from the smallest independent retailers to large corporates can benefit from the performance, convenience, and reliability of our professional displays without having to compromise on their signage by using TVs.”
The EL32+ 32″ FHD, joins Vestel’s growing portfolio of cutting-edge open-source SoC digital signage displays and will be available from Vestel resellers and distributors from September.
