Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, announced October 4, 2016 its next generation of professional grade LCD monitors for its PN-R series. Available in 42”, 49”, and 55” models, the new series is the most technically capable and physically versatile yet.

The new PN-R556/R496/R426 LCD monitors won the title of “Best of Show” at InfoComm 2016 for their aesthetic qualities. This new series offers a slimmer, sleek design with a bezel of only 7.8 mm around the screen, cutting the bezel size of its predecessor in half. This decrease allows onscreen images to dominate and stand out more than ever before.

With this one of a kind update, customers can install these models in either landscape or portrait modes and mount them in ways such as from ceiling wires, face up, face down, or forwards or backwards at any angle. This flexibility in installation brings an entirely new level to signage customization and provides more choices to display key messages.

In addition to being able to mount these visually dynamic images virtually anywhere, the PN-R series offers an optional HDBaseT 2.0 compliant receiver board which can support multiple media and control signals, including HDMI, Audio, and LAN signals up to 328 feet. This brings an ease to connectivity, requiring less cables and reducing installation time.

To allow for even more flexibility, an optional wireless board allows up to 10 devices (Mac/Windows Computers, Chromebook/iOS/Android platform smartphones and tablets) to connect and display simultaneously without cables. Users can display content of one device on the whole screen or from up to 4 devices in a 2×2 split screen.

The PN-R496 display will be available to ship in October 2016. The PN-R556 is scheduled for November, and the PN-R426 is scheduled for January 2017.
