NEC Debuts 46-inch Narrow-bezel Display

Chicago - NEC Display Solutions of America, a provider of commercial LCD displays and projectors, has introduced the 46-inch MultiSync X461UN ultra-narrow professional display.
The 46-inch large-format display is designed for video wall solutions, where its ultra-narrow bezel allows for a screen-to-screen distance between two neighboring MultiSync X461UN displays of only 7.3 millimeters. The MultiSync X461UN can be deployed in video wall matrices of up to 10x10, creating a total surface area of approximately 645 square feet. The transition gap between displays ensures a homogenous picture across the matrix, says a representative.

The MultiSync X461UN can be combined with many of NEC’s large-format accessories, such as the MPD-SBC-8/16-2 single-board computer, SB-I008WU DVI daisy-chain module, or SB-L007KK HD-SDI card. These add-ons provide a cost-effective way to source and manage display content. The NEC accessories’ ability to be fully integrated into the X461UN expansion slot eliminates the need for external distribution equipment and power supply, thus providing for a clean look that simplifies installation and reduces maintenance without compromising quality.

The 46-inch ultra-narrow display is ideal for digital signage in lobbies, broadcasting, public venues, retail areas, transportation applications, and financial environments. Through the optional SpectraView IIT color calibration kit (NEC SVII-PRO-KIT), tiled X461UN displays will have identical color settings, ensuring color uniformity, and fidelity across multiple screens, and creating a perfectly matched image in tiled environments. Additionally, NEC’s new Network Control and Communication feature enables remote display management and includes such features as automatic e-mail notification in which users are alerted to instances such as overheating and lamp failure.

The MultiSync X461UN is backed by a 3-year parts and labor warranty and will be available in April at an estimated street price of $6,000.
