NEC adds a new member to its S series, the 52-inch S521 Full HD business-grade LCD display. Like the S401 and S461 announced last month, the S521 is designed for digital signage applications with extended operation times, such as airports, retail and other public areas.
The NEC S521 features 1280×1080 Full HD resolution, 500cd/m2 brightness, 3000:1 contrast ratio, ambient light sensor for optimum brightness based on existing light conditions, advanced cooling design to prevent likeliness of image retention and improved color uniformity and video wall capabilities. It includes also real-time clock and built-in scheduler and expansion slot. The S521 offers DisplayPort, HDMI, VGA, DVI-D, 5 BNC (RGB/HV), composite, component, S-Video inputs as well as Ethernet, RS-232 in/out, IR and DDC/CI control ports.
The NEC S521 is priced at $2689 and there is the $2849 S521-AVT with built-in ATSC/NTCS/Clear QAM tuner.
