These features make the SQ1 Series 4K displays an excellent choice for signage applications.

“Panasonic is committed to continual improvement in our display performance, versatility, and efficiency, no matter what the intended application or venue is. The addition of these new 4K displays round out our portfolio of innovative and state-of-the-art 4K display technology” says John Baisley, Senior Vice President, Professional Imaging & Visual Systems, Panasonic Systems Solutions Company of North America. “Including the Intel® Smart Display Module (Intel® SDM) specification in our new SQ1 Series allows Panasonic to offer a sleek, slim and scalable display solution which simplifies interface integration, signage installations and platform management.”   

“We are pleased Panasonic has adopted the Intel® Smart Display Module (Intel® SDM) specification in their new SQ1 Series 4K displays. Our collaboration offers a flexible, integrated and scalable solution to help businesses interact and work together more easily and efficiently”, says Jose Alvaro Avalos, Vice President, Internet of Things Group, Global Director, Visual Retail and Digital Signage, Intel Corporation.

With a focus on streamlining installation and efficient operability, Panasonic’s new professional 4K display portfolio includes:

EQ1 Series 4K Professional Displays
The EQ1 Series includes six (6) new models of 4K professional displays, which includes 43, 50,55, 65,75, 85- display sizes. The EQ1 Series offers a full 4K portfolio of sizes to fit many signage scenarios.  These 4K ultra HD displays offer 350 cd/m2 brightness, making them an ideal visual communication solution for public spaces, retail venues, corporate meeting rooms and classrooms. The two largest displays (86/75-inch) also feature In-Plane Switching technology, which maintains colour accuracy and clear visibility when the screen is viewed off-axis. This new display series presents 4K imaging with a slim depth and stylish narrow bezel design which maximizes the screen area in relation to the display’s physical size. The design offers excellent visibility and enables simple, networkable media presentation, with a built-in signage player that allows video and still-image playback via USB. Single or multiple displays can be monitored and controlled using Panasonic’s Multi-Monitoring and Control Software. This free software includes basic control capabilities, with the ability to expand its function by using Early Warning Software, for networking displays, monitoring device status, operation history and sending alerts should an issue be detected. These displays can be mounted in either portrait or landscape orientation. The EQ1 Series will be available in Autumn 2018.

SQ1 Series 4K Professional Displays
The new SQ1 Series expands the 4K display lineup to include 86 and 98-inch sizes offering an excellent solution for digital signage, or for general use in the office, classroom or retail locations. The stylish SQ1 4K Series blends high imaging performance with adaptability and outstanding efficiency, and is built for self-contained or networked digital signage or as an office/education/retail communication system. The 4K displays have a built-in USB Media Player, eliminating the need for external devices and reducing cable connections in offline environments, with updates to USB memory devices via LAN when connected to an intranet (ideal for difficult-to-access installations). An IPS panel assures excellent all-round visibility and outstanding picture quality, while the narrow bezel and quality finish enhances any interior space. The slim wall-mounting maximizes visibility with ADA compliance. These displays can also be mounted in either portrait or landscape orientation. The SQ1 4K displays are expected to be available in December 2018.
