    Set up advanced interactive digital signage with Black Box's NEC/3M Touchscreen LCD. Featuring integrated 3M® MicroTouch™ Dispersive Signal Technology (DST) on its touchscreen interface, it's ideal for applications that require fast, accurate, and reliable touch response.

    Unique 3M touch technology.
    Using integrated DST technology, the NEC/3M Touchscreen LCD recognizes touch by interpreting bending waves within the glass substrate—which is distinctly different than most traditional touchscreen technologies that detect touch by interrupting acoustic waves, optical fields, or infrared beams above the surface of the screen.

    When someone puts a finger or stylus on the NEC/3M Touchscreen LCD's glass, it creates a bending wave within the substrate, radiating out from the point of impact to the corners of the screen. The waves are detected by sensors, which enable the touchscreen LCD's high-speed processors to precisely calculate the touch location.

    Because bending waves are not affected by on-screen contaminants and surface scratches, the DST touchscreen offers more accurate and reliable operation.

    For this reason it's well suited for busy, heavy-use applications, including:
    • Interactive digital signage.
    • Public wayfinding kiosks.
    • Customer "self-service" stations.
    • Retail PoS/PoP touch panels.
    • Visitor services screens in lobbies.
    • Point-of-information stations.

    The NEC/3M Touchscreen LCD also can be used for corporate directories, retail product selectors, and conference room and education presentation systems.

    Featuring a chemically strengthened glass (meeting UL® 60950 glass breakage specifications), the touch panel has an anti-glare etch surface for use in a wide range of ambient light conditions. What's more, the surface minimizes the appearance of fingerprints.

    High-performance NEC LCD technology.
    Not only do you get a technologically advanced touchscreen, but the commercial display itself is also designed for extended use and display of clear, HD-quality images and video. Its 55" screen is great for large public venues.

    The public display-grade, standard-bezel NEC V551 LCD boasts high brightness and contrast ratio, so you can create eye-catching, interactive signage with crisp, easy-to-read text. Featuring 6-axis color control, you can precisely adjust color, color temperature, and saturation to your liking.

    It can also be remotely managed. Through its RS-232 or Ethernet port, you can control one or more displays. Use the NaViSet™ intuitive graphical interface software to adjust display settings via a mouse and keyboard from a remote workstation. Because the LCD supports the DDC/CI standard, it allows for PC control of the display based on the VESA command set.

    What's more, the LCD has a scheduler feature—use it for round-the-clock, seven-day scheduling of content and powering of the display—as well as a text ticker feature that enables you to use a portion of the screen for emergency warnings and news updates. Primary content is displayed via one input and fills the majority of the screen while the secondary ticker information is shown on the lower remaining portion of the screen via a second input.

    In addition, NEC TileMatrix™ technology enables configuring of multiple screens for video wall setups (with in up to a 10 x 10 matrix) and NEC TileComp™ works with TileMatrix to compensate for the bezel width, so you can create a more seamless video wall.
