NEC Display Solutions of America, has announced the enhancement of its most durable large-screen product line, the P Series, with two new models. The 40-inch P402 and 46-inch P462 are direct replacements for the acclaimed P401 and P461, and are 1-inch thinner in depth. NEC also announced the addition of the P402-AVT, P402-TMX4D, P462-AVT and P462-TMX4D to the P Series lineup.
These professional-grade, industrial-strength LCD displays are intended for 24/7 operation and as such include additional thermal protection, internal temperature sensors with self-diagnostics and fan-based technology to prevent overheating. The P402 and P462 are ideal in quick-service restaurants, airports, public information environments, healthcare facilities and retail stores. An added technology to these models is the Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) compliant expansion slot, the industry’s first standardized option slot that aims to simplify digital signage installations. Two other new features are the DisplayPort output and integrated DVI loop-through capability, which eliminates the need for a daisy chain module.
“Our professional-grade P Series is ideal for the most demanding digital signage projects that require integrated technologies to ensure uninterrupted reliability,” said Rachel Karnani, Product Manager for Large-Screen Displays at NEC Display Solutions. “The P402 and P462 displays are going to provide more flexibility for customers. These second-generation displays not only expand connectivity options but also improve the mechanical design with new displays that are 1-inch thinner than the first generation products. This allows our customers to install less obtrusive displays in areas where they may not have previously fit.”
