Sharp unveiled on Monday a new multi-screen display system which it says features the world's thinnest frame width and offers better presentation for the growing digital signage market.
Sharp's multi-screen display system achieves the world's thinnest System Frame Width of 6.5 mm and will be introduced into the Japanese market in August of this year.
This multi-screen LED backlight display system is built around the new PN-V601 60V-inch professional LCD monitor, which uses Sharp's proprietary LCD technology to reduce the width of the monitor?s bezel. The width of the bezels between neighboring displays is a mere 6.5 mm, making the seams where individual LCD monitors join unobtrusive. This enables practical applications such as single large-screen video wall displays.
The PN-V601 features a full-array LED backlight. Arranging the LED elements in an evenly spaced array improves the uniformity of brightness compared to conventional CCFL (cold-cathode fluorescent lamp) backlights. The result is reduced unevenness in brightness over the entire display area when creating multi-screen configurations.
Other features include a zoom function, the ability to
combine the optional PN-ZR01 Control Kit with multiple PN-V601 LCD monitors in order to control all displays using a single remote control unit; a brightness sensor that adjusts the brighness of the system in order to match the lighting at the installation location; and an
optional Interface Expansion Board (PN-ZB02) for additional inputs, including DVI-D, component video, and LAN.
