High picture quality and a wide viewing angle make these displays ideal for signage use.
The SF2 Series incorporates a high-visibility IPS panel and a variety of functions that support signage use. It also features signage control functions like the USB Media Player, which lets you simply insert a recorded USB media device for automatic playback, and Content Management Software, which makes it easy to create playlists combining video and still images.
The IPS Panel Has a Wide Viewing Angle and Minimal Color Fluctuations
There is very little change in color, compared with the VA panel, when the screen is viewed at right or left angles, so the images are crisp and clear. This is ideal for providing correct information to places with a lot of people present, such as public spaces and facilities.
Easy Display of Images Optimized for the Display Content and Viewing Environment
Conventional display panels are preset with display modes such as Standard and Dynamic. The SF2 Series comes with an extensive display menu to let you select the most suitable mode for the content to be displayed and the viewing environment. You can select the best mode for the video source and the place of display.
Failover and Failback Safeguards for Mission Critical Situations
The SF2 Series is equipped with a variety of signal input terminals : HDMI, DVI-D, DIGITAL LINK*1, and USB. If the main video and audio signals are interrupted, the system immediately switches to alternative signals. This makes it ideal for mission critical control rooms and surveillance centers. If the main signals are restored, the original image is displayed.
HDMI CEC Device Linking Supported
HDMI-CEC compatible devices an be connected to the display by an HDMI cable, enabling the basic operations (such as power ON/OFF), of the compatible devices to be controlled by the display’s remote control. Power ON/OFF of the display can also be switched using only the remote control (or main unit buttons) of the HDMI-CEC compatible devices.
