Commercial LCD display and projector solutions provider NEC Display Solutions of America announced the addition of the 55-inch V552 and 65-inch V652 to its commercial-grade V Series. The high-performance full-HD panel is designed for extended operation times in deployments including retail stores, restaurants, indoor venues, training facilities and corporate boardrooms, the company said.
NEC's V552 and V652 utilize LED backlighting to reduce the product's depth, weight and power consumption, and each also features built-in 10-watt speakers and an Open Pluggable Specification-compliant expansion slot. This future-proofs the display and allows for the seamless integration of a computer or other NEC or third-party accessories, the company said. Additionally, video, RS-232 control and power are passed internally from the display to the accessory, allowing the elimination of additional cabling and simplifying installations.
"We're proud to introduce two products that not only reduce the physical footprint of the display but also decrease energy usage because of the LED backlighting," said NEC's Product Manager of Large-Screen Displays, Rachel Karnani. "The shift to LED backlighting is significant for the digital signage industry and is evident in NEC's large-screen product line. The V552 and V652 reinforce that commitment to improve our customers' total cost of ownership and return on investment."
