Product Highlights

  • Option Slot for Additional Interfaces
  • Professional Grade Panel for 24/7 Use
  • Portrait or Landscape Orientation
  • DICOM Gamma Mode

The 42" Pro Display from Sony incorporates edge-lit LED backlighting technology to help achieve a brightness of up to 700 cd/m2. With low power consumption, this commercial-grade LCD panel is designed for 24/7 use in either portrait or landscape orientation.

Low Power Consumption
LED backlight contributes to low power consumption.
Shallow Mounting Profile
Input/Output ports configured so cables extend sideways, allowing this thin display to be mounted very close to the surface.
RS-232 and RJ45 Control Ports
Both major control interfaces are included as standard, so it is easy to integrate the FWDS55H2 into almost any signage or display system.
Option Slot
Although many A/V interfaces are included as standard on this model, the option slot allows for use with other formats such as HD-SDI.
Standard VESA Mounting
This display can be mounted to any stand or bracket conforming to VESA standards with a pitch of 400mm.
Portrait or Landscape Mounting
Designed for commercial applications, the 46H2 Display can be mounted in either orientation without affecting the life of the panel, and the menu can be properly oriented to match.
Screen Saver Functionality
Three schemes are available to reduce the disappointing affects of image retention; the actual process is not visible to the viewers.
DICOM Gamma Simulation
This feature provides settings that make the display useful as a reference display in non-diagnostic medical applications.
Multi-Display Function
The multi-display function provides internal processing for extending a progressive video signal across multiple displays (up to 4 x 4) without any external hardware.
ID Mode for Remote Control
This allows control of individual display units when there are multiple units in a given location such as part of a video wall.
Additional Features
The additional features include picture-in-picture; true color control; On/Off timer; and control panel lock.
