Samsung Electronics launches 1:1 ratio and transparent display products

Samsung Electronics has announced a 1:1 ratio LED square display and a transparent display, which will both be showcased at the IFA event in Berlin, 31 August – 5 September.

The 1:1 aspect ratio unit is a direct LED-lit LCD panel, with a 5.5mm bezel-to-bezel measurement and the capability to daisychain up to 100 units together to make a single image. The company is aiming the 21.6” square display at commercial markets for digital signage and video wall applications. The company also suggests that the units could be arranged into 3D configurations such as cubes or steps, although there are no details as yet on the mounting or bracket requirements for such ideas.

Samsung's 22" transparent display (NL22B) is a new type of product, available as an all-in-one showcase, launching a new era of possibilities in digital retail design. The thin LCD panel on the front of the transparent display allows images and animations to dynamically interact with the merchandise inside the showcase while still enabling passers-by to view the product. The three remaining sides are made of protective tempered glass enclosed by a metallic frame.

Available as an all-in-one showcase for use as a stand-alone display or as an optional 22" kit for wall installation, the NL22B is targeted firmly at the retail market for product display applications.
