A recipient of the InfoComm 2018 Best of Show award from Sound and Video Contractor, the displays are intended for hospitality, business and retail settings looking to excel at reaching their audiences. The true-to-life precision of 4K Ultra-HD resolution enables customers and viewers to see subtler textures and finer details in photos and video, says Sharp.

The PN-UH series of displays features a powerful RS-232C command set that permits flexible remote-control capabilities from connected devices. It also comes with lockout capabilities including a public mode function for environments that require more control over the content, such as airports, stores and restaurants.

The displays are built with a large screen and slim bezel to ensure a pleasing appearance and minimal protruding parts, while still allowing for enhanced connectivity. Additionally, two HDMI inputs allow you to connect multiple high-definition (HD) sources, including digital signage and cable boxes, while a built-in USB port lets you present a variety of digital content.

These models come with Sharp’s Limited Three-Year Advance Exchange Commercial Warranty.

Gary Bailer, director of Product Management for Pro AV Products at Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America, stated:

We are very pleased to offer our largest line of commercial 4K Ultra-HD displays to date. The broad range of screen sizes ensures that our customers can now employ uniform technology and imagery in a variety of locations and environments to suit individualized business needs. Their customers will be more informed, entertained and engaged than ever before.

All six PN-UH series commercial LCD displays are now available for shipment.

Space-saving desktop monitors

Sharp also announced three new space-saving desktop monitors for the modern, compact workplace: the 22″ Class (21.5″ diagonal) LL-B220, 24″ Class (23.8″ diagonal) LL-B240 and 27″ Class (27″ diagonal) LL-B270.

With a two-millimeter bezel width, these new desktop displays are much slimmer than typical office wide-format monitors and are designed to free up employee desk space to enhance productivity. The monitors also support full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) to render small text and fine lines precisely.

A wide-viewing angle of 178 degrees allows users to see high-quality images with minimal alternations to color and brightness, and look consistent across the whole screen even when viewing from the side, says Sharp. Users can also manually adjust blue light output to one of four levels to find the most comfortable light level for their eyes.

The LL-B240 and LL-B270 are available to ship immediately. The LL-B220 display is slated to become available to ship in February 2019.
