Built-In SoC (System on a Chip)

The PN-B401 has an integrated SoC controller driven by a 1.8 GHz ARM Cortex-A17 quad-core processor with 2GB memory and 8GB storage. It integrates Android OS (4.4) and comes pre-installed with several types of signage support software. This means the PN-B401 is ready to display signage right out of the box, even without a PC. It is also compatible with various third-party Android apps.

Supports H.265/HEVC

The built-in SoC controller supports H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC.

Open Architecture Platform

The Open Architecture Platform allows third-party software developers to create custom signage applications.

Intel Mini OPS-Compatible Expansion Slot

The Intel Mini OPS-compatible expansion slot allows the use of an HDBaseT receiver board (available separately) that supports various types of media and control signals or a wireless board (available separately) for easy wireless connection with multiple devices.

Flexible Settings

Whether in a landscape or portrait orientation, this monitor can be installed face-up, face-down, or tilted forward or backward at an angle of up to 90°. Designed for easy hanging installation, it can be suspended from four corners of the rear housing with wires.

DisplayPort Daisy-Chain

Multiple PN-B401 monitors can be set up in a daisy-chain configuration by connecting between the DisplayPort terminals, so you can display the same content simultaneously on all screens.

16-Hour Daily Operation

The PN-B401 monitor supports 16/7 operation.

Autoplay with Media Player

The built-in media player automatically starts playing the content that is stored either on USB memory device, SD card, or internal storage when the monitor is powered on. It also has a simple schedule function that allows you to pre-register seven patterns for when to start/stop the content playback. In a slideshow, you can add visual effects between the still images. You can make playlists that combine still images and videos. The PN-B401 monitor lets you enjoy the benefits of simple digital signage without any extra software, special skills, or even a PC.

Web-Based Signage

The HTML5 browser pre-installed on the SoC allows web content to be easily shown on the PN-B401 monitor as signage content. All you need to do is enter the URL in the HTML5 browser.

Content Distributor

This software makes it easy to update the content to be displayed on multiple LCD monitors. Through simple and intuitive PC operation, you can schedule what content gets distributed, when it gets delivered, and which monitors show it.

e-Signage S Software

This signage software provides total support for individual user needs in the creation, scheduling, distribution, and management of a wide range of signage programs for Sharp LCD monitors installed in offices, commercial establishments, public spaces, and many other locations. The PN-B401 comes bundled with the standalone edition of Sharp e-Signage S software, accompanied with its player pre-installed on the integrated Android OS. Sharp e-Signage S software (standalone edition) lets you create/edit signage programs easily via simple drag-and-drop operation. You can lay out diverse content, such as still images, videos, HTML, and horizontal message bars, in a free layout frame to make signage programs. You can also create display schedules and timetables and monitor the operational status of a designated PN-B401.
