Philips to Debut New Entry-Priced DS Monitors

philips-DSmonitors-0212MMD, the Philips-branding company, announced the launch of four new multi-functional displays aimed at the “upper entry-level” signage market. Available in 32”, 42”, 46” and 55” models, each of the new displays offers full HD resolution with an array of new features and functionality. Philips says the new range of products for the E Series feature its next generation technology across the board, with upgraded panels and connectivity options.

The 42” BDL4245E, 46” BDL4645E and 55” BDL5545E come equipped with Intel’s Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) slot, an industry standard interface that allows users to insert an internal PC to simplify digital signage implementations across platforms. All four are 1090p native LCDs, are networkable, have a brightness specs of at least 400cd/m2 and as high as 500cd/m2, use the Philips Eco-Smart settings for stand-by (less than 1 watt of power and ambient light detection) and have both HDMI and DVI-D connectivity.

These will debut next week at the Digital Signage Expo, so they’re not on the Philips website yet.
