Samsung Electronics America Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corp., showed off its latest displays at InfoComm 2012 pro AV show in Las Vegas.
Samsung showed a variety of LED backlit display solutions for the first time, including the ME65B, a 65-inch display with a touch overlay option; the H Series Hybrid TV displays; the UD22B square video wall display; and the NL22B transparent all-in-one showcase display.
"Samsung is committed to providing solutions that enable all businesses to benefit from LED backlit displays as nearly half of our product line-up is now LED," said Tod Pike, senior vice president at Samsung's Enterprise Business Division.
With the introduction of the MD LED Series, Samsung said it is speeding up the enterprise transition to LED by making it a more affordable and competitive solution, without sacrificing key features. Engineered with energy efficiency in mind, the MD Series provides an expansive visual experience that is ideal for high-traffic areas, including commercial, public and corporate information displays. The design elements facilitate enhanced performance with the added benefit of cost-savings.
At just 17.5 mm (bottom 21 mm), the narrow bezel allows audiences to focus more on the content, and the slim depth offers more space for installation. The MD Series is lightweight, permitting easy installation and efficient space management. With reduced heat emission, the MD Series is more energy efficient and has less impact on the environment. It also sports an embedded media player for easy content play and updates.
The ME65B and ME75B extend Samsung's LED lineup into larger size display options by offering a 65- and 75-inch screen size, respectively. Both displays offer a lightweight display designed for commercial and retail customers looking to reduce energy spend and time and cost of installations. The FHD display comes equipped with a DVI-out component and easy content control through RS232C and RJ45 ports. A narrow bezel of just 21.5 mm allows customers to focus more on content, and its slim depth offers more available space for other uses.
In addition, Samsung has created a new streamlined solution in the form of a touch overlay option. Compatible with the entire ME Series, this accessory turns the display into an interactive board with dual drawing performance and allows for integrators and businesses to quickly add touch capabilities without the need to replace the display.
The H Series is a hybrid display with a built-in TV tuner designed for moderate-use commercial applications where a consumer TV display may be needed in a commercial space such as a bar/restaurant, lobby or doctor's office. The H Series comes with a built-in RS232 port for basic display control functions and USB Media Player for easy content management.
Samsung's new UD22B is a 22-inch square type display with a one-to-one format and a super-narrow bezel that is aimed at customers looking for a different kind of display solution that allows them to build creative and artistic installations. With the ability to daisy chain up to 100 units and a 1.8 mm/3.7 mm bezel that allows for seamless tiling, the UD22B provides endless flexibility for installations that are only limited by the imagination of the user, the company said.
Samsung's Transparent Display, the NL22B, is an all-in-one showcase allowing retailers to easily merchandise their brands. This includes built in speakers, PC and MagicInfo Premium software.
In addition to its LED display products, Samsung also showcased other offerings:
- SL46B – A super-high brightness indoor display solution, the Samsung SL46B is aimed at high ambient light conditions such as retail storefront windows. A slim 12 mm bezel allows for diversified standalone or video wall solutions, giving retailers the option to tile multiple displays in a storefront window environment.

The 650TS-2 LCD eBoard delivers high-quality images, even in brightly lit rooms.
