Digital Signage Lineup Includes Interactive 4K Panels, Ultra-Thin Dual-Sided Screens, Award-Winning Bar-Type Displays, and More
COSTA MESA, Calif. — March 5, 2015 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned digital lifestyle solutions provider, today announced its exciting new product lineup for Digital Signage Expo (DSE) 2015, which takes place in Las Vegas, March 10-13. Exhibiting its next-generation signage solutions for the very first time at DSE, BenQ will unveil the company’s all-new interactive 4K panels, ultra-thin dual-sided screens, bar-type displays, and more. Combining crisp resolutions, creative placement options, smarter content sharing, and innovative eye-care capabilities, the product portfolio allows boardroom, retail, education, hospitality, or transportation settings to easily increase collaboration, enhance information broadcasts, or simply attract attention to any content campaign.
“We’re extremely excited to bring our signage portfolio to this year’s DSE,” said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. “As a first-time exhibitor, DSE is the perfect platform to unveil our entirely new digital signage lineup. Offering quality, reliability, ease of installation and maintenance, as well as simple operation, our innovative signage solutions enhance collaboration and content delivery in a variety of settings.”
At DSE 2015, BenQ will be unveiling its 79-inch RP790 interactive panel for the very first time. Featuring 10 touch points, the interactive display allows presentation participants, enterprise collaborators, or information seekers to be engaged with vibrant 4K UHD content. To enrich the viewing experience, the panel comes equipped with Eye Care AG (anti-glare) glass to counter light reflection, as well as low blue light technology and flicker-free viewing to reduce eye fatigue. BenQ will also announce the new 55-inch ST550K at the show, which is planned for release later in the year. Featuring 4K resolution, the new panel will allow users to broadcast dynamic content easily using tools such as a powerful built-in multimedia player, USB plug-and-play function, and Multiple Display Administrator (MDA), which allows administrators and IT managers to simplify panel operations and maintenance by easily adjusting content scheduling, on/off powering, and remote monitoring and control.
To broadcast bidirectional information effectively to oncoming viewers, BenQ’s all-new DH551F and DH551C ultra-thin dual-sided displays bring full HD content to high-traffic public areas. Featuring 700 nits of high brightness, only 25 mm of thickness, and support for both portrait and landscape modes, the sleek-looking screens offer flexible setup options directly on walls, ceilings, or moveable stands. Designed to broadcast continuous content for up to 50,000 hours, the 55-inch displays provide reliable content delivery via amazingly long life cycles that create more cost-effective campaigns. To enhance flexibility even further, BenQ is introducing new wire-type ceiling mounts to hang the dual-sided screens directly from midair, wall mounts to show content in portrait and landscape modes above passing viewers, and a new stand mount that lets users roll the dual-sided screens to the desired viewing area.
BenQ’s award-winning 28-inch BH280 and 38-inch BH380 bar-type displays feature a sleek and slim design to deliver content in any setting, including buses and subway cars, restaurants, government offices, post office counters, banks, convenience stores, or exhibition spaces. Featuring 178/178-degree viewing angles and an ultra-bright 700 nits (BH280) or 800 nits (BH380), the 16:3 and 32:9 format ultra-wide displays combine a Smart Light function that allows flawless viewing in any ambient lighting environments with an amazing average life of 50,000 hours — creating signage solutions that lower total cost of ownership (TCO) via long-lasting brightness and performance. To provide full connectivity, the panels accept DVI and VGA inputs and are both VESA mountable — ensuring simple integration within any existing system for seamless content delivery, an incredibly simple installation process, and reliable performance for any of today’s portrait or landscape preferences.
Rounding out its creative signage offering, BenQ also offers transparent display solutions for retail applications. The TL Series brings content interaction to customers in order to unleash new product display and advertisement opportunities. Featuring a dual display function, the displays allow consumers to observe both on-screen advertisements and actual products encased inside the transparent boxes — creating a display breakthrough for retail showcase windows, museum exhibitions, and other environments. Available in 32-, 50-, and 65-inch models, the displays can also be custom-built to fit any product placement requirement. Equipped with multiple inputs including USB ports and SD card input (TL320C) for easy media and system integration, the panels provide audio through two built-in 2W speakers for a full-on interactive experience that truly captures the attention of passersby.
DSE 2015 attendees will also have an opportunity to experience the BenQ DH550 dual-sided display at BrightSign’s booth 2131. BenQ’s all-new 4K displays will be available in May 2015. All digital signage solutions will be on display at DSE 2015, booth 2242.
Journalists are invited to DSE’s New Exhibitor Product Press Briefing on Wednesday, March 11 at 9:35 a.m. in the New Product Showcase area on the trade show floor where Bob Wudeck will briefly introduce the company’s ultra-thin dual-sided displays.
