Samsung announced the availability of a 1:1 ratio LED square display (UD22B) and a transparent display (NL22B), designed for the commercial display market.
Samsung Electronics will introduce both displays at IFA 2012, Europe's largest consumer electronics show, to be held in Berlin, Germany, Aug. 31-Sep. 5.
Providing an alternative to traditional rectangular displays, Samsung's LED square display with 1:1 screen ratio supports unlimited configurations. With 5.5 mm bezel-to-bezel measurement for seamless installation and digital loop out to produce a single image across up to 100 displays, Samsung's 21.6" square display lets commercial users explore limitless possibilities as they design artistic video walls. Multiple displays can easily be connected to create creative mosaics as well as cubic or other three-dimensional shaped displays.
Samsung's Direct LED backlight technology used in the UD22B square display generates less heat to reduce power consumption by more than 30 percent compared to existing LCD display technology, lowering operating costs. The UD22B also conserves energy by adjusting brightness according to surrounding brightness, and users easily manage content using Samsung's MagicInfo software solution.
Samsung's 22" transparent display (NL22B) is a new type of product. The thin LCD panel on the front of the transparent display allows images and animations to dynamically interact with the merchandise inside the showcase while still enabling passers-by to view the product. The three remaining sides are made of protective tempered glass enclosed by a metallic frame.
Available as an all-in-one showcase for use as a stand-alone display or as an optional 22" kit for wall installation, the NL22B accentuates the display of retail products. The all-in-one kit includes a built-in PC, speakers, LED bar and protective glass.
