MONTVALE, N.J., Oct. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, today introduced the largest monitor specifically designed for video walls in the industry*, the PN-V701 LCD display. Sharp's latest display provides high-quality video wall solutions, perfect for attracting the attention of large crowds.
The newest addition to Sharp's family of displays is ideal for use in stores and shops that are looking to affordably create that "wow" factor. With a bezel of just 4.4 mm, large images on the video wall appear natural and seamless. The 70" Class (69.5" diagonal) monitor allows integrators to assemble video walls with fewer monitors and less bezel lines, minimizing the non-display areas and maximizing value for users. Developed specifically for use in multi-monitor installations, the PN-V701 display is rated for 24/7 operation and can be arranged in portrait or landscape orientation. It's also approximately 16 percent lighter in weight than the 60" Class (60" diagonal) PN-V601A display.
The PN-V701 comes equipped with Sharp's Inverse Scan function. Designed to correct image misalignments by alternating the scanning direction between vertically adjacent monitors, Inverse Scan creates smooth, natural images on the large video wall. Additional features include SHARP Advanced Uniform Color Calibration Technology (UCCT), which can deliver uniformity of color and brightness across the entire video wall. The monitor also has an optional HDBaseT™ Receiver Board. By installing the optional receiver board, the PN-V701 display is able to receive HDMI video, audio signals, and control signals sent up to 100 meters away through a single CAT6 cable.
"We created the PN-V701 with the content developer in mind, so they no longer have to worry about their content being disrupted by crosshair bezel lines," said Gary Bailer, Director of Product Planning and Marketing for Pro AV Products at Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. "By using a 3x1 orientation, the center of the display remains clean and text remains legible—just how content developers intended. This provides a major differentiator for integrators, and reduces installation expenses, cabling and hardware for installers."
The PN-V701 is scheduled to ship this October.
