NEC X551UN Display

Of late, a massive 65-inch commercial-grade large-screen model was observed wriggling towards strengthening NEC’s feature-rich V series. A new ultra-narrow 55-inch X551UN model now picks up the company’s X range of displays for extension.

The recently unveiled professional-grade large-screen display has been designed to withstand elongated sessions of operation in a variety of video wall applications. The device puts across enhanced uniformity, reduced power consumption and mercury-free components.

Encompassed with advanced thermal protection and sealed panel design, the nattily carved NEC X551UN features full 1080p high-definition resolution, brightness of 500cd/m2, contrast ratio of 4000:1 and power consumption of 190W. At the same time, the embedded Network Control and Communication enables the highest level of remote display management.

“We’re very excited about all the new features and capabilities that are integrated in the X551UN and the solutions that can be created because of their addition,” shared Rachel Karnani, Product Manager for Large-Screen Displays at NEC Display Solutions. “Video walls will be incredibly crisp with full 1080p resolution and the sheer 55-inch size in any configuration will surely stop traffic in any environment. The display is future-proofed with Intel’s OPS option slot while continuing to offer all the technologies of the X462UN that our customers have made so popular.”

The display also lends support to Intel’s Open Pluggable Specification to simplify digital signage. Some other selling-points comprise built-in closed captioning, TileMatrix technology for video walls up to 100 displays, and full digital connectivity with DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI-D, and Ethernet with automated email notifications for diagnostic purposes.

The NEC X551UN will be made available in June with a price tag of $7,799. A three-year parts and labor warranty, including the backlight has been included further.
