MAHWAH, NJ-June 2,2015
Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation (SEC), expands its PN-V video wall series with the launch of its first 55" Class (54.6" diagonal) PN-V551 LED Ultra-Slim Bezel professional monitor. With a bezel-to-bezel width of just 3.5mm, the PN-V551 features Sharp's Uniform Color Calibration Technology (UCCT), the industry's first and only factory calibration process that delivers out-of-the box pixel to pixel color uniformity between multiple video wall monitors - encompassing chromatic intensity, luminance, and hue.
How Sharp's UCCT Ensures Uniformity of Color and Brightness
"Recognizing the difficulty installers face performing color calibration with video wall displays, Sharp is proud to launch a new 55" Class video wall platform offering incredible out-of-box color and brightness uniformity," said Mike Marusic, senior vice president, Marketing and Operations, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. "With UCCT, Sharp has taken the guesswork out of laborious and time consuming software calibrations, ensuring a superb picture every time."
The PN-V551 monitor combines Full HD (1,920 x 1,080-pixel) resolution with a display brightness of 700 cd/m2 to deliver stunningly bright and detailed images. Additionally, four PN-V551 monitors set up in a 2 x 2 configuration will enable users to display every pixel of native 4K Ultra HD (3,840 x 2,160-pixel) content on the equivalent of a 110" Class screen.
In multi-monitor configurations, optional Mirror Bezel Frames help minimize visible lines between PN-V551 monitors by reflecting mirror images of the display content. This creates more dynamic video walls and an even smoother big-picture effect. In addition, a remote control sensor box is available so all of the monitors in a video wall configuration can be conveniently operated through one remote control.
Built solid, the PN-V551 monitor is ideal for retail, transport hubs, command and control, corporate lobbies/meeting rooms and for other demanding professional applications that require 24/7 round-the-clock operation. It is available for Project Registration Pricing, and comes with a limited on-site commercial three-year warranty.
The 55" PN-V551 professional monitor will be available to ship this month.
