Nec Display Solutions Upgrades 42-inch Display In Commercial-grade V Series
NEC Display Solutions of America announced today the 42-inch V422 and V422-AVT with integrated tuner as additions to the commercial-grade V Series, which offers digital signage users a cost-effective solution.
- (1888PressRelease) September 13, 2011 - Featuring a public-display-grade panel to protect against permanent image retention, the V422 and V422-AVT join the V462, V462-AVT, V651 and V651-AVT displays and are ideal for retail stores, restaurants, indoor venues, training facilities and corporate boardrooms. An upgrade from the V421, this model has built-in low-profile 10-watt speakers and a expansion slot that allows for seamless integration of NEC accessories, third-party components and Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) products. The V422 also features a DVI loop-through option, whereby customers can pass a digital signal from one device to the next, eliminating the need for additional hardware, such as a DVI daisy chain module. Popular V Series features, such as Ethernet and RS-232 control, real-time scheduler and text ticker, are incorporated into the V422.
"This 42-inch addition to our second generation V Series lineup gives our customers more options when looking for the most current technologies in a broad range of sizes," said Rachel Karnani, Product Manager for Large-Screen Displays at NEC Display Solutions. "The expansion slot capability is a significant benefit for first-generation V Series customers looking to upgrade their displays, as it provides greater flexibility and future-proofing for the projects to come. It truly lets each user customize the installation for almost any digital signage application."
