LED-Backlight, Slimmer Cabinet Depth, and OPS-Compliant Expansion Slot Highlight the V423 Display

NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the 42-inch V423 LCD display, a high-performance addition to its commercial-grade V Series that utilizes LED backlighting for improved power consumption and a slimmer cabinet depth.

Delivering a 46 percent decrease in power consumption compared to its predecessor, the V423 large-screen display maintains its remarkable brightness. Its edge-lit LED backlight enables a slimmer cabinet depth and lightweight design, providing flexibility for a variety of installations.  With a full HD panel, integrated temperature sensors and fans, the V423 large-screen display is ideal for applications that require extended use, including retail stores, restaurants, indoor venues, training facilities and corporate boardrooms.

The V423 also features built-in, 10-watt speakers and an Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) compliant expansion slot. This future-proofs the display and allows for the seamless integration of a computer or other NEC/third-party accessories. Moreover, video, RS-232 control and power are passed internally from the display to the computer, eliminating additional cabling and simplifying installations.

"The V423 display’s brilliant imagery captures an audience’s attention, while simultaneously delivering economic and environmental benefits," said Rachel Karnani, Product Manager of Large-Screen Displays at NEC Display Solutions. "With LED backlighting, users will find an attractive total cost of ownership, one that is a model for the digital signage industry."

  • LED backlighting technology for reduced power consumption
  • Commercial-grade LCD panel and components, which enable extended run times
  • 1920 x 1080 full HD native resolution, which provides stunning clarity
