ISE 2020: Panasonic expands its 4K professional display line-up
Panasonic was the first to incorporate Intel Smart Display Module (SDM) capabilities into its 4K high-resolution LCD displays and has now announced its latest refresh and expansion of the line-up. The SQ1H Series and SQE1 Series are enlarging the range of Premium 4K Professional displays with higher brightness models and new designs suitable for signage and Smart Retail applications.
In addition, Panasonic unveiled the new CQE1 Series of displays designed for everyday presentations and the smooth sharing of high-quality content in meeting rooms and classrooms.
The newly added SQ1H Series of displays (86/75/65/55-inch) has an increased panel brightness of 1000cd/m2 or 2000cd/m2 , to ensure content can be displayed clearly even when installed in shop front windows, in sunlight environments like atriums and lobbies, or built in outdoor kiosks.
For the next generation of Smart Retail and In-Store Digitisation, the displays are also the first to be equipped with the latest Intel SDM slot. The SDM slot enables the expanded use of the display for the latest retail applications requiring integrated computing capability. For example, a display including a camera and running Facial Recognition Software on the SDM module could detect a person looking at the display, profile and identify the audience and play tailored advertising or marketing offers to the passerby.
This latest Intel SDM standard easily integrates into the SQ1H Series display’s slim design, is compatible with Windows, Linux and Android operating systems and provides future-proof connectivity by supporting multiple generations of Intel® processors, higher bandwidth capabilities and future higher resolution displays.
To help capture the attention of passers-by, the displays are equipped with a 12-axis colour management function that is compatible with HDR to display a wide range of contrasts. The displays also meet the international standard BT.2020 emulation mode to deliver a visually captivating display of rich colour 4K images.
