NEC launches next generation MESSAGE large format displays


Munich, 1 February  Sharp NEC Display Solutions Europe has launched its all-new MESSAGE range of next generation large format displays. The full range contains three new series; NEC MESSAGE Essential (ME), NEC MESSAGE Mainstream (M) and NEC MESSAGE Advanced (MA) Series. The new display models deliver full flexibility, ease of use and a large feature set covering entry, mainstream and professional signage for retail and corporate applications.

The MESSAGE’s diverse range of options and modular design means customers can choose the display solution they need today and as their needs change in the future:

ME Series (Essential)

Offering a professional feature set and NEC’s renowned high reliability, yet at a very attractive price point, the ME Series presents the perfect opportunity for customers to digitise their signage. The ME Series is ideal for lower budget business operators – including retail, fast food, museum and SME – as it presents the upgrade path to professional digital signage without requiring specialist expertise.

Primed with an integrated USB MediaPlayer, the ME Series offers an out of the box playback experience of signage content. Thanks to the modular approach, users can upgrade the playback with the NEC MediaPlayer, that gives all the flexibility you need to easily and intuitively, create, schedule and broadcast expert signage content, meaning your messaging is always fresh and up to date.

Capable of landscape or portrait orientation and up to 18 hours continuous operation, local retailers, restaurants and small business enterprises can deliver dynamic advertising and infotainment to their customers whilst benefiting from the efficiencies gleaned through digitisation.

M Series (Mainstream)

With slim, modern styling, 24/7 operation and high haze panel to reduce reflections when ambient light is high, the M Series is the professional way to deliver corporate messages, yet at an attractive price point. It offers enhanced performance for enterprise users in meeting rooms and for signage applications in leisure and entertainment, demanding retail and higher education.

With the optional NEC MediaPlayer or the more powerful Intel® Smart Display Module computing device, users get full media playback and are primed and ready for intuitive signage creation delivering real-time visual experiences. For advertising, infotainment and meeting room applications, the M Series provides powerful, upgradable functionality and aesthetic appeal.

MA Series (Advanced)

When true-to-life colour rendition is essential, the MA Series’ advanced feature set delivers calibrated precision, without compromise. For specialist applications, the wide colour gamut panel, SpectraView® engine technology and 8K signal processing, positions the MA Series at the high end of professional content delivery.

Via the integrated SDM slot, modular devices support powerful media playback for the most intuitive signage creation and delivery. Featuring an integral audio amplifier, multi-picture mode technology and extensive connectivity including video out, the MA Series offers versatile functionality for corporate signage, prestige retail applications or command and control environments.

Martin Lienau, Product Manager Large Format Displays at Sharp NEC Display Solutions Europe, said: “Customers are seeking digital signage solutions that offer greater flexibility, easier control and smooth integration. The NEC MESSAGE display range delivers this with a modern design that fits any commercial or corporate environment. Whatever your usage scenario, the MESSAGE line-up provides the professional features you need, and the peace of mind that your investment is protected so that you can share your message, your way.”
