Sony has launched four new BRAVIA BZ40H Professional Displays specifically designed for business, corporate and educational environments. Ranging from 55–85in, these large format 4K resolution screens feature full array LED, alongside a redeveloped slim-line design for easy integration.
The all-new BZ40H models are reportedly the first to combine “the ultimate picture quality” with faster processing and transfer speeds, supporting the demands of professional applications. Unique to this range is also full array LED, providing what the manufacturer is calling “the very best in contrast,” where light areas in an image receive a boost in backlighting, creating peaks of brightness (850 cd/m²).
In response to customer feedback, a newly enhanced design with an ultra slim flat bottom aluminum bezel, logo on the side, new terminal positions and a reinforced structure also provides flexible set-up options for portrait or landscape installation.
The new series additionally implements a number of Sony’s advanced AV technologies, including 16:9 4K resolution with four times the detail of full HD, Sony’s 4K X1 Processor enhancing contrast, clarity and colour and compatibility with High Dynamic Range (HDR) video formats.
“Our four new BRAVIA Professional Displays uniquely combine incredible depth and quality of 4K resolution with the very latest in Full Array LED picture quality and processing power, wrapped inside a flexible and robust new design,” said Thomas Issa, Corporate Solutions Marketing Manager at Sony Professional Solutions Europe.
“At Sony we are committed to the needs of our customers in an evolving business landscape. The BZ40H displays are specifically designed to support new ways of working, providing crisp and clear delivery of video conferencing and shared content, alongside the latest technological performance and style our customers have come to expect from BRAVIA.”
All BRAVIA Professional Displays additionally benefit from native compatibility with the Sony TEOS solutions for advanced workplace management, featuring the latest built-in functionalities such as customisable Smart Automation options, new Meeting Display interface and an intuitive Outlook integration, as well as signage, mirroring, wayfinding and meeting room management.
With TEOS, Sony has also created COVID-19 related signage templates and a range of workflows to ensure flexible working and social distancing. BRAVIA Professional Displays are also natively compatible with multiple partners, including Cisco, Crestron, Extron, Kramer, Logitech and Control 4.
- Easy-to-operate, one-step settings for meeting and conference rooms or digital signage applications, and a professional mode (Pro mode) for display customisation. Sony’s professional BRAVIAs also offer simplified export/import functions using USB, which allows a user to configure multiple displays from one ‘master’ settings file to provide a consistent setup.
- An intelligent software platform that takes advantage of the built-in CPU/GPU and video decoder, simplifying complex systems with PC/STB/switcher into a single display. Functions such as automatic boot display and signal source switching can be achieved without the need for remote control or external devices, with reliable 24/7 operation.
- A built-in Android OS platform providing an upgraded interface and simplified operation for commercial customers, with Chromecast and Airplay 2 support allowing users to easily share content from smart mobile devices.
- Wireless connectivity supporting 5GHz, in addition to 2.4GHz and Wireless Access Point (WAP) for less interference to maximize network performance. As well as an internal WAP that is enabled within the software, eliminating the need to connect devices to external Wi-Fi access points.
The BZ40H series can be used in meeting rooms, public and retail spaces, digital signage, smart classrooms and healthcare institutions, among others. The professional displays also integrate with additional Sony AV products, cameras and monitors to create a fully operational, connected solution.
