MAHWAH, N.J., Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, today announces its next generation of professional-grade LCD monitors for its award winning PN-R series. Available in 42" Class (41.9" diagonal), 49" Class (48.5" diagonal), and 55" Class (54.6" diagonal) models, the new series is the most sophisticated from Sharp and comes equipped with more physical and technical capabilities than ever before, allowing for the widest variety of installation options for almost any signage application.
"Our customers require extreme flexibility for various installation environments as well as maximum compatibility with various digital signage solutions," said Gary Bailer, Director of Product Planning & Marketing, Pro AV Products. "The new PN-R series models are our most advanced professional-grade displays ever, and deliver unparalleled versatility for the Pro AV market."
The new PN-R556/R496/R426 professional LCD monitors won "Best of Show" at InfoComm 2016 for their eye-catching and appealing qualities. With this unique update, customers can install these models in landscape and portrait modes and in several new ways including: suspended from a ceiling via wires, face up, face down, or forwards or backwards at any angle.
The installation flexibility brings a new level of customization for Sharp customers and provides more choices to display key messages. The next generation PN-R series offers a slimmer, sleeker, design with a bezel of only 7.8 mm on all four sides. This is 50 percent slimmer than its predecessor and the thinnest Sharp has introduced in this size format, allowing for onscreen images to stand out even more. These images beautifully fill the screen, reaching almost to the edges of the monitor.
