NEC (News - Alert) Display Solutions has unveiled the MultiSync X401S, a 40-inch LCD public display that combines efficiency – thanks to its Edge LED backlight – with elegance via its super-slim and light design.
NEC Corporation is a leader in the integration of IT and network technologies that benefit businesses and people around the world. By providing a combination of products and solutions that cross utilize the company's experience and global resources, NEC's advanced technologies meet the complex and ever-changing needs of its customers.
Being the best in class professional public display product with Edge LED technology, the MultiSync X401S is ideal for retail signage, as well as mission-critical signage applications for airports/transportation, control room applications and even for QSR installations and solutions in totems and furniture.
The X401S rounds out NEC's hugely popular XS Series, and will join the 46- and 55-inch models in the same series.
The high-definition 1080p resolution display's Edge LED backlight technology provides outstanding uniformity, while catering for the rigorous demands of 24/7 usage. This also makes the display incredibly slim and light, which enables integration in extremely slim cabinets and installations with space constraints.
Furthermore, the programmable ambient light sensor ensures that the brightness is automatically adjusted as the light conditions change, reducing power consumption while delivering eye pleasing brightness levels.
These features help to make it more effective and environmentally friendly as well as keeping the operating costs as low as possible.
But performance isn't sacrificed for these other benefits, as the screen still produces 700cd/m2 brightness with its very low reflection panel. Quality of picture is outstanding as well, through optional color calibration allowing logos and images to show with incredible precision.
The display is also DICOM compliant, so it can be used in medical applications.
The MultiSync X401S supports NEC's unique heat management system, which enables the user to monitor and control the heat inside the display with user controllable fans. Heat management is crucial for integration jobs and installations to secure reliability and longevity.
This model also includes NEC's OPS slot technology version 2 (STv2), which allows for the integration of single board computers and other option slot products without the need to stow external equipment.
These features are provided along with other features standard in NEC's XS Series of public displays, including OSD rotation for portrait mode, network connectivity with SNMP support for remote control and automated e-mail notifications for diagnostic purposes, as well as a full range of inputs including DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI.
Daisy chaining via DVI can be used to link up to nine units, offering high flexibility at no extra cost if the signal needs to be passed on for video walls or back-to-back installations.
"Digital public displays are becoming increasingly commonplace and so the demands on their performance are rising,” said Thorsten Prsybyl, Product Line manager of Public Displays at NEC Display Solutions Europe. “Our XS Series delivers the longevity and reliability customers expect, thanks to a professional public display panel and proven NEC engineering excellence. [The product] gives users the peace-of-mind that easy operation is assured and that the content is getting across."
The MultiSync X401S will be available in October 2012. Each unit includes a power cord, VGA cable, user manual on CD-ROM and interface cover. The LAN control software can also be downloaded freely.
NEC Display Solutions Europe offers a three-year pan-European service warranty, including the backlight.
NEC brings more than 100 years of expertise in technological innovation to empower people, businesses and society.
