NEC Display Solutions of America touted its new 55-inch, near bezel-less display last week at InfoComm 2019, in Orlando. The new panels join the company’s UN Series line of displays, which are designed to make the video wall setup process easier thanks to its intensive factory color calibration and proprietary SpectraView Engine that ensures best-in-class color control.
The new UN552S and UN552VS feature just 0.44mm inactive area surrounding an anti-glare, high-haze IPS panel designed for seamless multi-screen configurations. The panels also feature enhanced OSD color control, easy content distribution, and software capabilities.
“When it comes to video wall setup, making sure the color is just right is often the biggest pain point for customers,” comments Ben Hardy, senior product manager at NEC Display Solutions. “That’s why we’ve engineered the UN552 line of video wall panels to have the easiest setup process by putting them through an intensive factory calibration process that ensures color uniformity, reducing customer frustration while providing the ultimate flexibility in color adjustment.”
Each UN552S and VS display is calibrated at the factory for luminance, RGB, White Point, Uniformity and Gamma to ensure each panel matches out of the box. In addition, self-calibration is possible by plugging in an external SpectraView sensor directly into the display.
The UN552S features 700 cd/m2 of brightness, ideal for retail, corporate, cinema, or house of worship use, while the UN552VS features 500 cd/m2 of brightness, suited for applications where max brightness is not needed, such as broadcast and command and control. Like other panels in the UN Series, the UN552S and VS feature improved NDWC capabilities with corner adjustment, uniformity correction and quicker recalibration techniques. The displays also include both DisplayPort and HDMI out connections to daisy chain signals from the internal media player for easy video wall installation and management. Meanwhile, the new TileCut function ensures the image does not get cut off when displaying content on non-16:9 video walls – a must for customers who need to ensure their content is always properly displayed.
The UN552S and UN552VS will be available beginning in July; as of press time, no pricing information was available.
