Panasonic is all set to launch its new 4K-ready video wall display series, with the company targeting a summer release. Dubbed the LFV8, there will be two different sizes available in the series – 49in and 55in.
The new displays have the ability to show 4K images in a 2×2 configuration and larger using DisplayPort in a daisy-chain fashion. The 49in panel offers 450 cd/m2 brightness, while the 55in screen has 500 cd/m2 with native 4K-capable DisplayPort inputs and outputs. When installed in a 2×2 configuration across the four Full HD panels, the result is a single, film-like 4K (4096 x 2160/30p) video image.
The two-model range meets the demands of professionals by streamlining the installation process. The new precision video wall mounting system saves time, reducing labour costs. The rigid mount uses an automatic magnet system, eliminating potential alignment inconsistencies.
The display features an ultra-narrow bezel-to-bezel distance of just 3.5mm, allowing for near seamless video wall display. This is combined with high resolution IPS (in-plane switching) technology so that the image remains clearly visible even from oblique angles, vital for signage applications. In addition, the 49in display promises improved visibility by combining an anti-glare treatment with a low-reflection coating (AGLR).
“These panels are perfect for creating an impressive 4K video wall,” says Enrique Robledo, European marketing manager for Panasonic.
“Whether it’s for retail, hospitality or transport, these displays have excellent blacks and highlights making them immensely capable at grabbing the attention, while the flexible installation allows you to exploit just about any installation space.”
The display is engineered for 24/7 reliability in either landscape and portrait orientation. The 55in (TH-55LFV8) will be available in August with the 49in (TH-49LFV8) display available in September.
