Sharp/NEC to launch FC Series LEDs with Chip on Board technology for Indoor Signage, Transportation and Meeting Spaces


Munich April 11, 2023 Sharp NEC Display Solutions Europe is launching the NEC LED FC Series with Chip on Board (COB) technology that impresses with high contrast, excellent durability in public spaces, and superb energy efficiency. Utilising the already established F style cabinets for easy set up and flexible usage, the new FC Series benefits from front serviceability for all components allowing easy access for maintenance.

Displaying deep blacks and extreme contrast levels of up to 20,000:1, content appears dramatically vivid for a remarkable imaging performance and the best possible viewing experience in any ambient light conditions. The Sharp/NEC COB technology is highly energy efficient, generating a brighter output at a reduced power usage, consuming around 40% less power compared to standard SMD LED technology.

Providing excellent durability, the FC Series is robust against external influences, making it suitable for use in indoor public spaces such as transport terminals, museums and leisure venues, or for corporate applications. The smooth, dustproof surface can be wiped clean and is resistant to water drops.

“Due to its extreme high contrast and stunning imaging performance, the FC Series is ideally suited for indoor signage, transportation and meeting spaces”, said Nils Detje, Product Manager dvLED Solutions at Sharp NEC Display Solutions Europe. “The 16:9 F style mechanical cabinets allow scalable configurations to create customised surface shapes and sizes to suit the application and space available. The established cabinet design allows easy installation of wall mounted or freestanding surfaces for rapid deployments, even in difficult to access spaces thanks to the front serviceable design.”

Available in three fine pixel pitches (0.95mm, 1.2mm, and 1.5mm), the optimum display resolution can be achieved for close viewing distances.
