New NEC LED Displays Designed for Long-Distance Viewing
NEC's newest line of direct-view LED displays have higher than normal pixel pitch, making them suitable for being viewed from long distances.
NEC Display Solutions of
America has launched a new line of direct-view LED displays designed to be
easily viewed from long distances, making them suitable for outdoor signage on
building exteriors and indoors in large auditoriums or lecture halls.
The new LED displays offer
1.2-mm to 6-mm pixel pitch for indoor applications and 5.8-mm to 12-mm pixel
pitch, meaning the distance between dots is higher, thus making it easier for
long-distance viewing. It also offers 24bit color processing, making for
smoother and clearer images.
"Institutions today need
bigger screen sizes, bright and color-accurate crystal-clear images, zero
bezels and the ability to easily service and upgrade to create unique video walls,"
said Grant Wylie, senior product manager for LED display solutions.
The new displays typically
have a lifespan of about 100,000 hours and maintenance is limited because of a
rear serviceable module. Panels can be arranged in either a concave or convex
configuration, if necessary, and can be replaced and upgraded with easy color
calibration to ensure uniformity if and when a panel is replaced.
NEC offers design consulting
to colleges and universities to assure that its customers have the right
technology for specific needs, at the same time making sure the components are
correctly installed and staff members are trained on how to use them.
The new LED displays come
with an expanded three-year warranty.
