TH-75BQE1 Professional Touch Panel Display
Making dynamic presentations on a digital whiteboard affordable for companies and schools, the new TH-75BQE1 75-inch 4K UHD Direct-LED display gains deep versatility when interfaced with free downloadable Panasonic Whiteboard Software via USB and HDMI®/VGA cables. Software dovetails with touch-panel for effortless operation, and in Whiteboard Mode, allows users to write and draw on screen with a tool palette for line thickness and color adjustment. Included PowerPoint® Link Mode enables import, modification, and resaving of PowerPoint® files, while expanded presentation tools such as Loupe, Spotlight, and Fade-out Marker assure professional-level presentation Video-capture and screen-capture functions are useful for recording presentations, and pages of work can be saved for later distribution. Facilitating up to 10-point touch, the panel enables natural notation with included stylus pen. Simple USB memory viewer decodes media on USB sticks; front-facing speaker deliver clear audibility in classrooms; and wide screen area in pixel-free 4K resolution presents viewers with bright, clear, and legible pictures. With its large size and detailed resolution the TH-75BQE1 is also perfect for interactive signage applications such as wayfinding.
SF2 Series and SF2H Series Professional Displays
The new Panasonic SF2 Series standard signage displays also inspired development of the SF2H Series, which comprise larger 70- and 80-inch panel sizes with higher brightness. All slim-bezel Full HD displays feature IPS panels for excellent off-axis visibility; efficient E-LED backlighting; image-enhancement processing; and a wider variety of picture modes. Designed for 24/7 use the SF2 Series ships in 43- to 65-inch sizes with 450 cd/m2 brightness, while SF2H Series sets have 700 cd/m2 and Panasonic’s new LinkRay™. All are easily configured for single or multi-screen installation, and are self-contained with a built-in USB Media Player. In network environments, USB memory data is updatable via LAN, while playback scheduling can be remotely automated using free Content Manager Software. With an eye towards deployment in public and retail spaces, the sets can display a custom image on startup and when no input signal is detected. They also include a failover/failback that can automatically switch to a backup input if the primary signal is lost, and switch back when it is restored. To expedite multi-display installation, a cloning feature is available where menu settings and picture configuration data from a master display can be copied to slave units via USB memory or LAN. Further, sequential IP address data can be copied to multiple displays via USB memory. This saves installers time and expense. The SF2 series is planned for release in August 2017, and also SF2H Series is planned for release in December 2017.
