CHICAGO - June 16, 2010 - NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the addition of the 55-inch P551 to its professional-grade P Series. Prestigious in the AV industry, the P Series also provides digital signage professionals with the 40-inch P401, 46-inch P461, 52-inch P521 and 70-inch P701.

Designed for the rigors of 24/7 environments such as airports, public information, rental and staging and healthcare, the P551 brings supreme features and extended connectivity to the most demanding users. Providing twice the refresh rate than that of most competitive displays, the P551 reduces typical blur seen in fast-moving images and gives viewers a life-like crisp image with a 120Hz setting. A wide range of inputs include DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-D, 5 BNC in/out (RGBHV, DVD/HD, composite video), as well as RS-232 and Ethernet connectivity for remote monitoring, control and email notifications for diagnostic purposes.

The integrated expansion slot enables users to connect a variety of accessories, such as a single board computer, DVI daisy chain module or internal HD-SDI card, to the P551 for additional methods for displaying content. The ENERGY STAR 5.0 certified display carries a multitude of eco-friendly technologies, including an ambient light sensor for consistent brightness no matter the lighting conditions and a carbon footprint meter to track and calculate the conservation of green gas emissions.

"The NEC P Series is now offering more features than ever in the P551 with 120 frames per second refresh rate and heightened flexibility that will suit any digital signage deployment and allow users to take full advantage of their digital content," said Luke Bruschuk, Product Manager for NEC Display Solutions. "This premium LCD display has the advanced capabilities that 24/7 operations need to function efficiently, such as an Enhanced Digital Signage Technology Suite, the tandem-working TileMatrixTM and TileCompTM for seamless video walls and copy functions for applying the settings from one display to all others."
