The S521's ambient light sensor provides optimum brightness based on existing light conditions, while its Enhanced Digital Signage Technology Suite boasts more than 30 built-in features to benefit a variety of applications. This model aligns with its S Series siblings in maintaining a low level of power consumption and offering a number of digital connection options, along with the standard analog connections, to satisfy the myriad of large-format display applications in which it can be installed. Users can take advantage of remote monitoring and flexible control by utilizing Ethernet, IR, RS-232 in/out and DDC/CI.
"The immense capabilities provided in the S521 give businesses the opportunity to increase their visibility with customers and communicate more effectively, all the while maintaining efficient use of energy," said Luke Bruschuk, Product Manager for NEC Display Solutions. "Its advanced cooling design elongates the product's lifetime and minimizes the likelihood of image retention and inconsistent color display, which is crucial for those extended operation applications. The S521's full high-definition 52-inch screen creates brilliant images, and its value grows significantly when additional methods of displaying content are readily available through the future-proofing expansion slot."
Below is a partial list of features included in the S521:
Optional accessories and products for the S521 include the NEC Display Wall Calibrator, SpectraViewIIâ„¢ Color Calibration Kit, stand, speakers, wall mount, single board computer, DVI daisy chain module and internal HD-SDI card.
