The X551S will be on display in NEC Display Solutions Booth No. 616 at Customer Engagement Technology World 2011 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, Calif., on April 27-28.
These super-slim displays are the first large screen products from NEC to offer LED backlighting technology, bringing a new class of professional-grade displays to NEC's lineup. Their edge-lit LED backlights enable lightweight design with minimal depth, providing flexibility for a variety of installations. The highly reliable panels allow for 24/7 operation with advanced thermal protection and a sealed panel design to accommodate the most formidable digital signage industry requirements.
The X461S and X551S are also the first in NEC's lineup to offer Intel's Open Pluggable Specification (OPS), which is the first industry-wide standardization in option slots to simplify digital signage. The OPS option slot allows for easier installation, use, and maintenance of digital signage.
These models provide users with full connectivity, including DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI-D. Network Control and Communication allows the highest level of remote display management. Ethernet connectivity provides email notifications to the administrator. RS-232 enables multi-display control and daisy chain capabilities to simplify display management.
"The introduction of the super-slim models to the award-winning NEC X Series is a step into the future, as they offer the most innovative technologies to date," said Rachel Karnani, product manager for Large Screen Displays at NEC Display Solutions. "LED backlit displays offer a much slimmer depth than traditional LCD displays, providing more flexibility during installation and a sleek appearance."
The X461S and X551S will be available in May and June 2011, and each carries a three-year limited parts and labor warranty, which includes the backlight.
