X431BT Offers Professional-Grade Features in Atypical 16:4 Size
NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today a unique addition to its X Series, the 43-inch X431BT bar-type display. This professional-grade LCD was designed for those customers who want to capitalize on digital signage but do not have an environment that allows for standard-sized screens. These types of areas can include transportation facilities, quick-service restaurants and retail stores.

The X431BT expands the messaging options for customers with its DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI-D connectivity. The bar-type display can be utilized for different styles of content, including menuboards, scrolling text and advertising of new promotions. To further opportunities for potential deployments, it can be mounted in both landscape and portrait orientation. Customers who want to maximize the benefits of installing an X431BT can employ the display's Picture in Picture (PIP), Picture on Picture (POP) and side-by-side modes to show information in different ways. Two inputs can be displayed simultaneously in any of these modes by either maintaining one aspect ratio or evenly stretching both images to fill each half of the screen.

""Digital signage is constantly changing, and NEC is thrilled to contribute to the industry with a new display that can be used long term in atypical spaces,"" said Keith Yanke, Director of Product Marketing for NEC Display Solutions. ""The X431BT carries with it the superior technology and management features of NEC's professional P and S Series, but can be used in tricky areas, like store shelves, stadium pillars or ceiling-mounted in hallways. Our ultimate goal through all of our products and platforms is to advance the market and cultivate the potential of our customers, and we believe the X431BT will fill the gap in some of those missing areas.""

The X431BT bar-type display includes the following features:

  • 1920 x 480 native resolution
  • 3000:1 contrast ratio
  • 500 cd/m² typical brightness, 700 cd/m² maximum brightness
