Planar Systems’ M-Series displays feature durable construction and long operational cycles for industrial use with ambient light sensing and backlight control. Also featured are built-in remote management software and digital loop-through for multimonitor tiled operation. The 70in.-diagonal m70L has 1920x1080p display resolution, 600 nits screen brightness, 1500:1 contrast ratio, a 178-degree viewing angle, and a 50,000-hour backlight life. The unit uses 720W of power and weighs in at 160lbs. The video input version includes composite, component, S-Video, and an SDI input with a loop-through. Remote control options include infrared and an RS-232 loop through for multi¬monitor applications.
Samsung’s 400FPn-2 40in. professional LCD display includes a built-in PC with MagicInfo Pro software, which puts it on a LAN for remote control. It can also be remotely operated by RS-232 serial control. A digital TV tuner can be added as an optional set-back box. The unit’s 4000:1 static contrast ratio and 450cd/m² brightness allow it to be clearly seen in brightly lit public areas. When used as a network monitor, the 228W power consumption drops to less than 5W in power-saving mode using a built-in feature called PowerSaver. There is also a built-in loudspeaker with 10W RMS stereo output power.
The CE52SR2 52in. daylight-readable, weatherproof LCD monitor from Sanyo has an antireflection, tempered-glass-protected screen sealed in an aluminum frame. With a resolution of 1920x1080, a contrast ratio of 2000:1, and brightness up to 1500cd/m² for outdoor use, the monitor stands up to harsh daylight conditions. The viewing angle is 176 degrees with 106.7 million display colors. The unit’s inputs include RGB, component on RCA jacks, composite on BNC, and DVI-D with HDCP support. Remote operation is available through RS-232, and this port as well as the component and composite video inputs have loop-through connections. There is also an RCA audio monitor output and dual 8W loudspeaker outputs.
Designed for commercial display applications, the Sharp PN-E601 has a 60in. diagonal display area with 1920x1080 resolution, analog/digital RGB inputs, HDTV video inputs, and fanless architecture.

When equipped with the PN-ZB01 optional I/O expansion board, the PN-E601 adds DVI-D in and out; 5-BNC analog RGB input; and component, S-Video, and composite video inputs. It also includes a stereo sound input, LAN remote control, and dual 10W loudspeaker outputs. An optional signage display controller can be attached to the rear of the display for the all-in-one signage display package. The unit is Energy Star-rated with 400W power consumption.
With a 52in. LCD panel, 1920x1080 screen resolution, aluminum frame bezel, and tempered-glass protection, the Sony GXD-L52H1 public LCD display uses multiple fans around the processor unit and dissipates heat through an advanced heat sink on the rear of the unit. The tempered-glass protection plate can be easily removed and replaced without the need to dismount the unit. The monitor features a horizontal and vertical viewing angle of 178 degrees and a special CCFL backlight control that keeps the remaining lamps going when one fails. Operational status can be monitored by a LAN-connected PC or through the RS-232 control connection. The VSP-NS7 media player may be mounted on the rear of the chassis for a complete signage solution.
