Sharp has added a new model to its PN-V video wall LCD display series, the 70” PN-V701. Its 70” size (69.5” diagonal), makes it the largest monitor specifically designed for video walls in the industry. It has ultra-slim bezels at 1.5 mm or the right and bottom and 2.9 mm on the left and top, for a combined bezel width of 4.4 mm. The PN-V701 display incorporates Sharp’s UV2A technology to efficiently utilize the backlight and prevent light leakage, creating bright whites and deep blacks. The PN-701 features an upgraded calibration process that delivers color and brightness correction for the monitor and improves color consistency across a video wall.
Further features of the PN-V701 include full HD resolution (1920×1080), 700 nits of brightness and energy efficiency. Due to its large screen size, a video wall built with PN-V701 monitors requires a fewer number of monitors resulting in a more natural look with fewer bezel lines to interrupt the displayed images. The PN-V701 monitors are also built with an inverse scan function which corrects image misalignments and creates smooth images on a large video wall. The PN-V701 is also built with an expansion slot to accommodate an optional HDBaseT 2.0 Receiver Board. This allows the display to receive HDMITM video, audio and control signals via a single Cat 6 (or higher) cable. The optional PN-ZR02 remote control sensor kit allows convenient operation of all the monitors via a single remote control unit.
PMA Research, the large display market experts, has reported a growth rate of 36% (YTD thru Sep 2017 vs YTD thru Sep 2016) for LCD monitors with bezel-to-bezel widths of less than 5 mm in their Flat Panel Distributor Tracking Report.
