Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, is introducing the PN-Y series of professional LED edge-lit displays. Available in 55, 47, 42, or 32 inch class sizes, the PN-Y series of monitors offer businesses a commercial-grade LED display solution at an affordable price. This collection provides an intermediate range of options between consumer AQUOS televisions and the higher-end PN-U series of LED displays, making it ideal for small and mid-sized businesses.
Businesses often opt to use consumer televisions in commercial settings due to their lower price, forfeiting the functionality and engineering designed specifically for commercial use. This latest series of displays provide a high-definition, tech-forward solution while remaining cost-effective for most commercial applications.
Able to display content in both landscape and portrait installations, the PN-Y series is equipped with the standard features of traditional commercial displays including fanless architecture, built-in temperature sensor, and RS-232C control and monitoring. The models also incorporate a thin bezel and are designed to be operated 20 hours a day, 7-days-a-week.
“The PN-Y series allows us to bridge the gap between our AQUOS consumer-grade televisions and our professional-grade displays to provide our customers with an affordable middle option,” said Mike Marusic, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Operations, SIICA. “This series is incremental to our product line and gives customers many of the features of these higher-end professional displays plus additional capabilities designed for this target audience.”
The PN-Y series also includes features new to this class of displays including a mirror display mode, or daisy chain capability which allows users to have the same onscreen content displayed on a series of PN-Y monitors. Also available in this series is the ability for PC-free playback of content through the inclusion of an integrated USB media player.
