Panasonic is set to launch a new LCD video wall range, the LFV8 Series, with the ability to display 4K images in a 2×2 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 2×2 configuration across the four Full HD panels, the result is a single, film-like 4K (3840 x 2160/30p) video image.

“The panels capture attention with immersive images and are perfect for creating an impressive 4K video wall –either portrait or landscape orientation – in retail precincts, hospitality, surveillance centres or transportation hubs,” said Chris Maw, Product Marketing Manager, Projectors, Panasonic.

As well as providing an affordable 4K solution for professional installations, 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 IPS panels are professionally pre-calibrated, preserving colour accuracy and maintaining visibility when viewed off-axis. The displays are ideal for digital signage applications – with a narrow bezel to bezel width of just 3.5mm, modular magnet-alignment mounting frame for fast installation, and a resilient design able to cope with 24/7 operation.

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 with a greater sense of immersion. An anti-glare surface coating also ensures high visibility under artificial light.
