Sharp will present its professional display monitors at GITEX this year via an elaborate video-wall project that the company said will be the largest of its kind in the region.
The technology firm’s stand – in hall 3 at the Dubai World Trade and Exhibition Centre – will showcase the 360 inch video-wall, which will be made up of 36 of it’s new bezel professional LCD monitors that are the slimmest in the world.
Specifically designed for video-wall applications, the PN-V601 is equipped with an extremely thin bezel and has a 60 inch (152 centimetre) diagonal screen. The appliance’s full-screen LED backlight ensures uniform light distribution and particularly vibrant pictures even for large video applications, according to Sharp.
Fred Yamaguchi, MD for Sharp’s Middle East and Africa operations said: “GITEX is a key exhibition for us in the region and we are using this launch pad to introduce the market to our latest LCD innovation.”
At a total bezel width of 6.5 millimetres between two adjacent LCDs, the loss in picture/content is reduced to negligible, Yamaguchi explained.
In a 6x6 configuration, the wall will be joined by two smaller versions - a 180 inch video-wall in a 3x3 configuration and a 120 inch video-wall in 2x2 configurations - as well as the world's largest LCD, at a whopping 108 inches.
“We have positioned our stand at the Business Solutions segment of GITEX this year, to focus on the expansive business solutions possible through our PN-V601 LCD monitors,” said Tomoo Shimizu, director - business solutions division at Sharp.
Compared with other, significantly smaller LCD displays available in the market, fewer lines occur in large video-wall applications with Sharp’s PN-V601 series LCD, since a greater area can be covered with one screen, said Shimizu.
The large screen size and ultra-slim bezel means little or no content loss across the display, thanks to the narrow bezel, which is a mere 6.5 millimetres wide. The almost bezel-less monitors can be added to at will, and can be positioned in a horizontal or vertical configuration to form a single surface.
“Not only does this mean you get a near-perfect seamless video in large display sizes, but it also means it is proportional to the size of the split wall, therefore, the costs of the appliances in terms of purchase price and power consumption are also lower,” explains Shimizu.
