Sharp enhances digital signage line-up with new high brightness solutions for demanding professional environments

London – Sharp has today launched the PN-HY and PN-HS, two new digital signage display ranges for continuous operation in retail, corporate and transport environments. The PN-HY and PN-HS are designed for demanding environments with a 24/7 operating time and max brightness of 500 cd/m² and 700 cd/m² respectively, ensuring exceptional clarity and delivery of information at any time.

The PN-HY 431/501/551 and the PN-HS 431/501/551 are available in three sizes – 43”, 50” and 55”. The displays offer 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) resolution combined with outstanding brightness and innovative LED backlighting to create more vivid colours and a boosted contrast, ensuring that content is always displayed with the detail, depth, and definition that it was created with.

To give businesses flexible installation options, both models can be mounted in landscape, portrait, face-up, face-down, tilt-forward and tilt-backward up to a 90-degree angle installation. The lightweight design also ensures that the displays are easy to install in a wide variety of locations. 

Both ranges have a wider colour gamut, providing greater accuracy for every colour displayed on-screen - ideal for communicating precise and attention-grabbing information to a variety of audiences. The displays are also perfectly optimised for reading complex information in professional specialised applications such as traffic control, surveillance or medical imaging systems. In addition, the white balance adjustment and colour temperature makes the displays ideal for high-quality broadcasting and video production, as well as indoor venues which use digital signage to present detailed imagery and impactful video. 

Additionally, both models support USB playback and include fully integrated 10W + 10W speakers to enhance any multimedia content. The displays are also fitted with three HDMI inputs to readily switch between sources. With an integrated LAN/RS-232C interface, the displays can be adapted to suit any existing control system, ensuring users can easily monitor and control the displays from a central location

Peter Heins, Senior Product Manager at Sharp NEC Display Solutions says: “We are pleased to announce our new range of signage solutions which set an exceptional standard for operating and brightness capabilities. Our latest PN-HS and PN-HY ranges offer businesses the means to communicate important information in a way which captures attention and makes an impact”.
