Panasonic Announces New Products to its Lineup of Professional Displays at InfoComm 2015

Panasonic announced new products to its lineup of professional displays, including the LF8P Series, LF8 Series and the LF80 Series at InfoComm 2015. In addition, Panasonic will be showcasing other leading professional display solutions, such as the TH-LFV70 video wall display and the large format 4K LQ70 Series at InfoComm 2015 (booth 1501). At InfoComm 2015, attendees can explore the Panasonic suite of displays, includes LF8P Series: The new Panasonic LF8P Series of professional LCD displays includes the company’s all-new Android™ and HTML5-based Embedded Open Platform, allowing for easy porting of digital signage software to the displays and thus, eliminating the need for external media players. This software platform will create a fertile ecosystem for the development of third-party applications, specifically for digital signage, commercial enterprise and the classroom. The LF8P Series are available in 42", 49" and 55" models, and offer high brightness with outstanding picture quality and eye-catching visibility. What’s more, customers can rest-assured that these displays are built for continuous 24/7 reliable operation. The LF8P Series with Embedded Open Platform will be available fall 2015. LF8 /LF80 Series: Panasonic engineered both the LF8 and LF80 Series of professional displays with high picture quality and versatility for a variety of digital signage applications. The series comprises the premium high-brightness 700 cd/m2 LF80 (42?, 49?, 55?) and standard 500 cd/m2 LF8 (42?, 49?, 55?) full HD displays with LED backlight. Both series offer high reliability with continuous 24/7 operation and “Failover and Failback” Function, which allows for immediate switching to alternative input if the primary signal is interrupted. With a narrow 6.3 mm bezel, the LF8/LF80 Series offer seamless large-format images for stylish and user-friendly video walls or as stand-alone communication solutions. For easy operation and configuration, users can quickly “plug and play” content loaded on a USB memory device via the display’s USB Media Player. For those looking for increased installation efficiency and saved cabling costs, the LF80 Series offers DIGITAL LINK connectivity, based on HDBaseT™ technology, that reduces cost and complexity of installation by allowing transmission of HD video, audio and control commands through a single CAT5e cable. The LF8 Series and LF80 Series will be available in September 2015. TH-LFV70 Video Wall Display: The Panasonic LFV70U Series professional-grade displays for video walls create a dramatic, low TCO multi-screen solution of massive imagery. With a 3.5mm bezel and up to 700cd/m² brightness, the 55” display creates nearly seamless, vivid images for a multitude of digital signage, public venue and command and control applications. The optional mount - TY-VK55LV1 - makes installation an easy task while the display’s “Failover and Failback” function maintains continuous signal distribution even when some inputs are accidentally disrupted. The LFV70U also includes DIGITAL LINK capability and is built for 24/7 operation. LQ Series: Shipments began for Panasonic's durable, professional 4K display models TH-98LQ70 and TH-84LQ70 in 2014, and the new models are being well received worldwide. Now, Panasonic announced that models TH-98LQ70L and TH-84LQ70L, with no protective glass on the front screen, have also been developed and added to the product line. The LQ70/LQ70L series offers 4K (3840 x 2160 resolution) LED backlit LCD displays to produce stunningly sharp images in a streamlined form factor with the system expandability required for professional 4K applications. The 98” TH-98LQ70/70L and 84” TH-84LQ70/70L 4K displays are ideal for a number of growing 4K resolution B2B applications including broadcast production, control rooms, rental and staging and eye-catching digital signage. These displays include the company’s next generation of image enhancement technology which up-converts non-4K sources to a higher level of picture quality – transforming ordinary Full HD resolution and a variety of PC signals into breathtakingly vivid images. The displays also feature a reinforced frame for flexible install including tilt (up to 10 degrees with landscape setting) and support 4K content over DIGITAL LINK. The LQ70L Series is available now.

Panasonic System Communications Company of North America's First 4K+ Projector Makes its U.S. Debut at InfoComm 2015

Panasonic System Communications Company of North America introduced at InfoComm 2015 the PT-RQ13KU, the company's first beyond 4K screen resolution projector. At the show, Panasonic will also show the high brightness PT-DZ21KU projector, showcasing its impact through a dramatic projection mapping display onto a Tesla Model S. Attendees can see these products and more at booth 1501. The PT-RQ13KU 4K+ Projector: With 4K+ screen resolution (5,120 X 3,200) and Quad Pixel Drive technology, the PT-RQ13KU is the most compact and lightweight 4K+ 3-chip DLP laser projector in the world. The projector boasts an impressive 10,000 lm of brightness and a contrast ratio of 20,000:1 using laser light, delivering extremely detailed, film-like, 4K+ image quality. The projector's pixel is shifted both horizontally and vertically at a high frame rate of 240 Hz, physically creating four different pixels from a single pixel, effectively quadrupling the pixel density of the image and creating an extraordinary picture quality. To optimize for fluid, detailed, high-contrast images, the PT-RQ13KU leverages a next-generation Detail Clarity Processor that analyzes pixel information. The new projector also delivers an extremely long 20,000-hour light-source life, ensuring greater reliability in addition to 24/7 operation. Providing system and installation flexibility, the Multi-Screen Support System allows screens to seamlessly join with edge blending, color matching and digital image enlarging. In addition, the PT-RQ13KU uses DIGITAL LINK - based on HDBaseT technology - that reduces cost and complexity of installation by allowing transmission of HD video, audio and control commands through a single CAT5e cable. The PT-RQ13KU is ideal for a wide variety of applications including rental and staging, auditorium, museum, control room, and house of worship. The PT-RQ13KU will be available in the fall of 2015.
