NEC enhances outdoor and sun-drenched viewing

NEC Display Solutions Europe has announced the launch of the MultiSync X462HB, a 46-inch LCD public display designed for high brightness environments such as lobbies, public spaces, outdoor events and quick service restaurants.

With a maximum brightness value of 1,500 cd/m2, combined with the high-definition 1080p resolution and large viewing area, it’s supposed to offer easy readability even in sun-flooded buildings. The ambient light sensor is to ensure that the brightness is automatically adjusted as the light conditions change.

The display is also equipped with a special quarter-lambda polarising filter, which enables owners of polarised glasses to view the content on the screen regardless if the display is mounted in portrait or landscape orientation.

“In bright and open spaces it’s easy for a company’s message to be washed out, or even blacked out by polarised sunglasses. This type of model is extremely popular with retailers and organisations requiring a bright display to accommodate high ambient lighting conditions,” said Thorsten Prsybyl, Product Line Manager for Public Displays, NEC Display Solutions Europe. “The high-definition display, combined with the full complement of management and control functionality gives users the peace-of-mind that easy operation is assured and that the content is getting across.”

The MultiSync X462HB will be available in December 2011. Each unit includes a power cord, IR remote control, VGA-VGA signal cable, user manual on CD-ROM and terminal cover. The LAN control software can also be downloaded freely.
