NEC has unleashed its second-largest LCD ever, the P701, 70-inch display designed strictly for professional-level digital signage.
It replaces the 65-inch LCD6520 as the high-end NEC product in that size category.
It packs 1920×1080 resolution and a 2000:1 contrast ratio.
It joins the 40-inch P401 and 46-inch P461 as screens designed for 24/7 applications such as airports, public information, health care, rental and staging, boardrooms and some specialty professional applications where eye-catching digital signage is required.
The P701 can be seen at the 2010 Digital Signage Expo (NEC Display Solutions Booth No. 1805) on February 24-25 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev.
Compared to its award-winning 65-inch MultiSync LCD6520 predecessor, this industrial strength display has a 15 percent larger screen surface with the same level of power consumption. It provides full connectivity including DisplayPort and Ethernet along with 30 built-in features in its Enhanced Digital Signage Technology Suite. Among these are TileMatrixT, which enables customers to create a video wall of up to 100 displays in a 10×10 matrix; an ambient light sensor, which automatically adjusts the display according to the amount of surrounding, and a built-in scheduler.
It will be available for March 2010 shipment at an estimated $11,799 with 3-year warranty.
