Functionality you need, at the price you want

A professional solution for low-budget applications, the E series forestalls the lure of domestic TVs which are not fit-for-purpose. Designed for the rigours of commercial usage, the E Series delivers the functionality and reliability you need, at the price you want.

An integrated MediaPlayer supports native UHD resolution and High Dynamic Range (HDR) for deep contrasts and natural looking content playback with auto-play function. Requiring no additional cables, external devices or signage software, the USB MediaPlayer enables a simple seamless professional signage solution. Meanwhile, a 10W USB interface supports connection of external devices should additional computing power be required.

For instant start-up in meeting spaces, inputs are detected automatically with easy switching between HDMI sources. Facilities managers will welcome the ability to remotely control their digital estate via the network thanks to the integrated LAN and NEC’s NaviSet Administrator 2 functionality making the E Series the perfect choice for corporate meeting rooms and entry level digital signage.
