Panasonic has announced its new EQ2 Series of professional 4K LCD displays to meet the widening range of needs in corporate buildings and classrooms. The Series offers high visibility, durability and a host of useful connectivity features in six screen sizes (86/75/65/55/50/43-inch).
With 500 cd/m² brightness and high haze value panels to suppress the reflected glare of bright light, the EQ2 Series is ideal for conference rooms, classrooms and open spaces such as receptions and shopping malls. The ability to position the display in portrait or landscape mode, with up to a 20-degree tilt angle and 18 hours continuous operation also makes the Series perfect for information display.
The EQ2 Series supports the Intel SDM (Smart Display Module) specification slot, which can be used with the receiver board version of Panasonic’s wireless presentation system PressIT, or optional terminal boards such as 12G-SDI and DIGITAL LINK. There is also built-in whiteboard functionality to annotate on screen and zoom in and out using a mouse.
USB devices can be connected to the display via a USB Type-A cable and controlled using a PC connected to the EQ2 via the USB Type-C port. This functionality, for example, is ideal for a simple and quick start to video conferences. If a camera or speakerphone is permanently connected to the display, a user can just plug in their PC and immediately control all devices to start the meeting.
For ultimate flexibility, the displays are equipped with HDMI (x 3), PC and USB Type-C video input terminals. LAN or serial control is possible, and simultaneous control and batch management can be performed via the network. The displays support LAN control with AMX or Crestron Connected. The Series also supports Screen Transfer, which enables a PC to stream content to up to 64 displays connected with a wired LAN.
