GDS Introduces Stretched 38-inch Display for Outdoor Digital Signage Applications

  • GDS Displays’ new 38-inch stretched outdoor LCD digital display is readable in direct sunlight and is suitable for continuous use in challenging environments.
  • GDS Displays has added a 38-inch stretched version to its MIDAS range of outdoor LCD products and will be introducing the display at InfoComm 2010, June 9-11, in Las Vegas. Designed to provide a fully integrated, digital signage solution in applications including transportation, public information and leisure, the display is readable in direct sunlight and is suitable for continuous use in challenging environments.
  • According to the company, the new LCD display gives highly contrasted content as well as excellent image quality. GDS Displays’ advanced 1000 cd/sqm LED backlighting technology enhances readability and offers excellent uniformity of light while consuming less power and offering longer life than commonly used conventional CCFL lamps. An ambient light sensor continually samples the light and adjusts screen brightness levels to ensure comfortable viewing at all times. By optically bonding vandal-proof glass directly to the LCD, GDS has alleviated back-of-glass reflection and condensation issues while giving the display excellent protection, the company said.
  • The 38-inch stretched MIDAS displays are housed in IP65 rated enclosures that provide both physical protection and resistance to moisture and dust ingress. The new displays are thermally managed with the correct internal operating temperature maintained automatically (heating and cooling). This means no additional enclosures or ancillary cooling systems are required, the company said.
