Panasonic launches 4K daisy-chain video wall

Panasonic is set to launch a new LCD video wall range, the LFV8 Series, with the ability to display 4K images in a 2x2 configuration and larger using DisplayPort.

Available in 49 and 55-inches at 450 cd/m2 and 500 cd/m2 brightness respectively, the displays have native 4K-capable DisplayPort inputs and outputs. When installed in a 2x2 configuration across the four Full HD panels, the result is a single, film-like 4K (3840 x 2160/30p) video image.

The displays can also enlarge and scale UHD (3840 x 2160/30p) across larger video walls, with greater accuracy than is possible with signals of lower resolution.

The panels are professionally pre-calibrated, preserving colour accuracy and maintaining visibility when viewed off-axis with IPS panel. Combined with the series’ narrow bezel to bezel width of just 3.5mm and a resilient design able to cope with 24/7 operation, the displays are ideal for digital signage applications.

The displays also make use of local dimming technology, which optimises contrast according to the requirements of specific areas within individual images that are being displayed. The result is improved blacks and highlights giving the displays the capability to grab the attention.

“The panels can be installed in portrait or landscape orientation, and are perfect for creating an impressive 4K video wall in retail, hospitality or transportation applications,” said Enrique Robledo, European Marketing Manager for Panasonic.  

The LFV8 Series is set to ship in Summer 2017.
