Samsung Highlights New LED Displays at InfoComm 2012
Samsung is exhibiting a variety of LED backlit displays for the first time at InfoComm 2012, including the ME65B, a 65-inch display with an innovative touch-overlay option; the H Series hybrid TV display; and the UD22B square video-wall display.
MD Series. With the introduction of the MD LED Series--competitively priced against traditional CCFL models--Samsung hopes to speed up the market's transition to LED. The displays, available in 32, 40, 46, and 55 inches, are intended for high-traffic areas, including public information displays. Their narrow bezel, just 17.5mm (bottom 21mm), light weight, and slim depth give users more installation options, as well as making installation easier. With reduced heat emission, the MD Series is also more energy efficient. It sports an embedded media player.
ME65B/ME75B. The ME65B and ME75B are a step up in size from the MD Series, with 65- and 75-inch screens, respectively. Both displays feature a lightweight display intended to reduce energy consumption and installation costs. The FHD display comes equipped with a DVI-out component and easy content control through RS232C and RJ45 ports. In addition, both displays feature a touch-overlay option, which allows institutions to add touch-screen capability without replacing the display.
H Series Hybrid TV Display. The H Series is a hybrid display with a built-in TV tuner designed for use in dining halls, lobbies, or anywhere people must wait. It is aimed at customers looking to make the transition from CCFL, since it provides superior picture quality for a comparable price. The H Series comes with a built-in RS232 port for basic display-control functions and a USB media player for easy content management.
UD22B. The new UD22B is a 22-inch square-type display with a one-to-one format and a very narrow bezel (1.8mm/3.7mm) that is ideal for customers who want to build creative installations. With the ability to daisy chain up to 100 units, the UD22B provides tremendous flexibility for anyone wanting to build innovative, large-scale displays.
