The Sony FWD-S42E1TOUCH 42" Interactive LCD Touchscreen Monitor integrates full touch screen functionality directly into the FWD-S42E1's factory enclosure, adding significant value to this slim, environmentally friendly public display monitor. Combining high image quality with a small footprint, the FWD-S42E1TOUCH's full 1920 x 1080 HD display can be shown in either landscape or portrait mode, taking advantage of its fast response time and a stellar contrast ratio to make your images shine. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, an innovative backlight design ensures that the monitor uses less than 100W of power.
A host of other features complement this stylish, high-performance unit, including 4 picture modes, 3 screen saver functions, 3 gamma settings, DVI and RGB inputs, and RS-232 control. The FWD-S42E1TOUCH's sturdy build and power efficiency provide it with the durability and cost savings necessary for 24/7 operation in high-traffic environments, making it a go-to monitor for such applications as digital signage, video security, and corporate presentation--not to mention the kind of interactive installations found in museums, learning centers, hospitals, and stadiums.
Touch Screen Integration
Using 3M's optically clear Dispersive Touch Technology (DST) within Sony's factory LCD housing, the touchscreen is designed for high-traffic, high-use environments, serving as an extra layer of protection for the LCD panel itself. DST provides access to the full display viewing area, which can be used as an interactive touch interface with infinite touch points offering fast, accurate, and repeatable performance.
The Benefits of DST
Dispersive Touch Technology combines chemically strengthened glass with an anti-glare surface and extremely fast and accurate response times. It supports gesture functions and offers users a standard USB 2.0 touch interface (touch connections are located in the connector bay area of the LCD). Operationally tested to more than 50 million touches in one location without failure, the screen contains no wear-out mechanism, layers, coating, or moving parts. By offering a technology that's fully integrated into the display--with no compromise to video performance and only a minimal increase in size (adding 1/4" in depth and 6 lbs in weight)--this touch-integrated display provides a compelling and competitive edge over standard display monitors.
Eco Power Consumption
By reworking the design of the earlier S42H1, Sony can now offer a lower power consumption of less than 100W--more environmentally friendly.
Video Walls and Multiple Messaging
Full HD, sleek thin bezel design, slim profile and overscan on/off mode enable the S42E1 to create the most visibly stunning video walls and the sharpest messaging systems.
Device On/Off Control via HDMI CEC
By combining the S42E1 with our HDMI board (BKM-FW15) you can now optimize the use of the display by synchronizing the standby mode of the display with the HDMI source you are using.
With the full range of HD inputs--DVI as standard, and optional HDMI and HDSDI--the S42E1 can bring full HD high-contrast viewing to broadcast applications, ensuring that production staff, clients and other interested parties enjoy a true full HD representation of content, thanks to the panel's native resolution.
Digital Signage Compatible
The full HD, high contrast, wide angle viewing enables pin sharp messaging from a distance and close-up, day or night. Compatibility with the Sony BKM-FW50/55 digital signage system makes these public displays ideal for strong, vibrant messaging throughout offices, stadiums, airports, train stations, factories and other facilities.
Suitable for Video Security Environments
The clarity of full HD combined with the low power consumption creates a more productive environment for security professionals viewing multiple screens.
Unique Sony LCD technology has overcome the "gravity gap" issues sometimes seen with plasma and other manufacturers' LCD units, ensuring operation in landscape or portrait mode without compromising performance.
Robust and Slim
The 19mm bezel has been designed to offer maximum visibility, while providing the sturdy protection and robustness you need for reliable operation in retail leisure and corporate applications.
Wider Choice of Network Options
Equipped with an RS-232 input, a complete range of HD inputs (DVI, and optional HDMI and HD-SDI), and compatible with the Sony BKM-FW50/55 SD digital signage system and next-generation boards, these displays will work in virtually any application from professional broadcast and retail, to corporate, and security markets.
Four Picture Modes
Includes vivid display with brightness boost, standard, fixed custom settings, conference mode for optimum pictures with fluorescent lights.
Three Screen Saver Functions
Choose from revert to standby, all white, or a scrolling sweep, based on inactivity time intervals from 30 minutes to 23 hours.
