The Buzz: Installation Spotlight: News Signage
The digital signage explosion has reached a point where electronic displays have seemingly penetrated every public space, including entertainment, retail, public safety, and transportation...

In my testing, the NEC's colors were very good although shaded, heavily in some cases, toward blue. That's not surprising for a public display that needs to cut through light and grab attention. I was extremely impressed with the NEC's grayscale curve, which rose smoothly from black to white in all preset configuration modes.

The new MultiSync X461UN represents an exciting possibility for videowall solutions. Visually, the new ultranarrow bezel affords nearly seamless images across videowall matrices. Technologically, NEC's now-mature TileMatrix and TileComp features, along with NEC's interconnecting wall brackets, help make building videowalls a lot easier. The increasing number of modules for NEC's expansion slot allows installers to minimize the parts of a public display videowall matrix through smarter onboard processing, more streamlined cabling, and options that allow for more creativity in making a big impression.
