SHARPÂ® INTRODUCES COMPANYâ€™S FIRST 32-INCH CLASS (31-1/2â€? DIAGONAL) PROFESSIONAL HIGH-DEFINITION LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY MONITOR
LAS VEGAS, February 25, 2009 â€“ Sharp today announces the new PN-325 32-inch class (31 1/2â€? Diagonal) professional LCD monitor, which offers a new screen size for the most sophisticated commercial signage and display applications in both landscape and portrait modes. This new model joins Sharpâ€™s steadily expanding line of monitors that have been designed for professional applications and operate in both portrait and landscape mode. With superb image quality and reliability, the monitor offers unparalleled performance for digital signage markets including retail, banking, hospitality and airports, as well as training simulation, government, university and corporate facilities. Also joining the lineup is the PN-325P monitor with an integrated protective acrylic overlay for high traffic areas.
â€œThe digital signage market is still in its infancy and the growth potential is limitless. With the right solution, companies can maximize digital signage opportunities for effective communication of basic information, advertising and even pure entertainment,â€? said Dan Wynne, senior director, Marketing, Professional Display Division, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. â€œThis new size professional monitor opens up more possibilities for signage applications in areas where a smaller monitor is necessary, and can also fulfill both the traditional landscape and portrait mode needs for a wider range of commercial applications.â€?
Superior Image Quality and Reliability
The PN-325 monitor offers Wide XGA (1366 x 768) HD resolution combined with Sharpâ€™s proprietary Advanced Super View (ASV) panel, providing stellar picture quality for fast-moving video through its fast pixel response time of less than 6 ms, as well as high brightness and wide 176 degree viewing angles. For a superior picture in practically any lighting condition, the monitor features a 1500:1 contrast ratio enabling viewers to discern details they might otherwise miss, particularly when viewing darker content.
To show multiple types of content sources in high definition, the monitors utilize DFE (Dual-Fine Engine) technology, which provides superior display of both digital and analog sources so the customer can display computer and video content flawlessly. A built-in enlargement function allows a user to create up to 4×4 video walls from a PC, and offers Picture in Picture capabilities.
For superior reliability in any commercial application, the monitor offers a rugged design and components, ideal for extended 24/7 use. The monitor also offers a lockable key panel, power-on delay function and extensive color adjustments.
The PN-325 has a full complement of input and output connectors to display all types of content, from DVD to varying PC resolutions from both analog and digital (DVI-D) sources. The monitor also offers an optional stereo speaker system (AN-32SP1) which attaches across the bottom of the display, as well as an RS-232C input which allows the monitor to be controlled, monitored and have diagnostics performed from a central location.
The PN-325 and PN-325P are supported with a 3-year, 24/7 on-site parts and labor limited warranty, including 3-year warranty on the backlight with no restrictions on whether the monitor is installed in portrait or landscape mode.
