Arista Corporation has introduced ADM-2155BP and ADM-2155BP-A01 multitouch LCDs with IP50 rating.

The 55-in displays are available in 1920 x 1080 HD (ADM-2155BP) and 3840 x 2160 UHD / 4K (ADM-2155BP-A01) resolutions. Both displays have a number of integrated video inputs and a multi-function expansion slot to facilitate an integrated computer as well as HDBaseT or AV-over-IP extension capability. They are suitable for displaying video content over networks or the integration of a computer for whiteboards in classrooms or conference rooms.

Arista’s ADM-2155BP display includes an RS-232 for remote OSD (On Screen Display) control. The basic functions and many features of the display, such as the turn on, turn off, (stand-by) power of the display, video source selection (HDMI/DVI/VGA) and brightness control can all be managed via RS-232. The OSD will appear on screen when the serial command is sent. The ADM-2155BP has HDMI, DVI, and VGA (legacy analogue video) inputs. On the I/O panel, there is an audio input connector to connect to the PC audio output, and an audio output connector to connect to an audio amplifier. Models with the touch screen option also include a USB type-B connector on the I/O panel.

The ADM-2155BP-A01 is a 3840 x 2160 / 4K resolution UHD LCD monitor with a quad-view function built-in. The RS-232 connector on the ADM-2155BP-A01’s I/O panel is for remote OSD control via RS-232. The basic functions and many features of the display such as the turn on, turn off, (stand-by) power of the display, video sources selection (HDMI-1/HDMI-2/HDMI-3/HDMI-4), and brightness control can all be controlled via RS-232. The OSD will appear on screen when the serial command is sent. The ADM-2155BP-A01 can display four video feeds in quad-view, picture-in-picture, and picture-on-picture format. The ADM-2155BP-A01 is shipped with Arista’s MVD-108 control console. Users can toggle display functions between quad-view, picture-in-picture; picture-on-picture, or single video content display.

Both the ADM-2155BP and the ADM-2155BP-A01 have a multi-function expansion slot that facilitates the integration of an HDBaseT receiver for applications requiring the ability to display remote video content. This expansion slot can also be used for the integration of an AV-over-IP receiver for applications that require the display to show multiple video feeds over the network. There is also a computer module available for whiteboard functions in classrooms, conference rooms, and similar environments.
