55" Professional Display for Entry-Level Digital Signage | TH-55LF8U
- Outstanding picture quality with 500 cd/m2 brightness level and IPS panel for visibility from any angle
- High reliability with Failover and Failback function for 24/7 uninterrupted operation
Stylish Design and High Visibility
Featuring Industrial Durabilitfaiy and Reliability, as well as a Stylish Appearance
This stylish design blends in with surrounding spaces and fills the screen with images. The 6.3 mm (0.25") bezel width of the LF8U Series is less than half the 16 mm (0.7") bezel width of the LF6U Series. And the slim design makes the depth only 57 mm (2.3"). Since the LF8U Series blends in with almost any surroundings and the screen is nearly filled with images, this display has a powerful, eye-catching impact.
Brightness for Displaying Easy-to-See Content in Bright Places
Performance with 500 cd/m² of brightness is required for some signage and other professional applications. This allows images to be beautifully displayed even in large, brightly lit spaces, such as train stations and airports.
The IPS Panel Has a Wide Viewing Angle and Minimal Color Fluctuations
There is very little change in color, compared with the VA panel, when the screen is viewed at right or left angles, so the images are crisp and clear. This is ideal for providing correct information to places with a lot of people present, such as public spaces and facilities.
Choose the Installation to Match Your Application
The LF8U Series is designed for use in either portrait or horizontal orientation with no effect on panel color and lifespan, further reducing TCO. A tilt installation up to 45 degrees forward or backward is also possible. The angle can be adjusted for easy viewing when installed in a high location.
*1: 0-45° for both left and right
*Angle adjustment is not possible for forward/backward tilting installation.
Be sure that the Power Indicator comes to the downside.
USB Media Player
USB Media Player for Simple Signage Use Without an STB
The LF8U Series features a USB media player. Signage operation is possible by simply inputting the desired content via USB, eliminating the need for a set-top box. Both videos and still images can be displayed, so a wide variety of original signage content can be used.
* For detailed instructions on using the USB Media Player Function, see the "Easy Guide"
Standalone Operation Saves Labor by Making Content Changes Over a Network
Multi Monitoring & Control Software makes it possible to change the content in the USB memory via LAN after installation. Content can be easily changed even when the display is installed in a high place or suspended from the ceiling. This enables smooth, easy operation.
Flexible Image Adjustment
Easy Display of Images Optimized for the Display Content and Viewing Environment
Conventional display panels are preset with display modes such as Standard and Dynamic. The LF8U Series comes with an extensive display menu to let you select the most suitable mode for the content to be displayed and the viewing environment. You can select the best mode for the video source and the place of display.
*Although the term "DICOM" is used, this product is not medical equipment.
Do not use displayed images for medical purposes such as examination or diagnosis.
High-Performance Image Engine for Flexible Image Adjustment Like Never Before
• 6-segment Color Management
Enables adjustment of the color tone, color density and brightness parameters individually for red, green, and blue, as well as the complementary colors of cyan, magenta and yellow.
• Color Enhancement
Displays images with enhanced color.
• Refine Enhancer
Corrects blurry image contours resulting from resizing, etc., to improve the image resolution.
• MPEG Noise Reduction
Noise reduction suppresses the block noise and mosquito noise that are characteristic of digital video signals. This faithfully reproduces the inherent beauty of the image.
* Images on screen are simulated.
Continuous 24-Hour Operation
Efficiency and Reliability for Continuous 24-hour Operation
The use of highly durable panel materials and quality electronic components ensures dependable 24-hour operation seven days a week. This makes the LF8U Series ideal for installation in public places, surveillance centers, and other applications where absolute reliability is critical.
* Display of moving images is recommended when panels are in use for long periods to prevent image retention. Note that image burn-in can be gradually rectified with the periodical display of moving images.
Failover and Failback
Failover and Failback Safeguards for Mission Critical Situations
The LF8U Series is equipped with a variety of signal input terminals: two HDMI, DVI-D, DIGITAL LINK, and USB. If the main video and audio signals are interrupted, the system immediately switches to alternative signals. This makes it ideal for mission critical control rooms and surveillance centers. If the main signals are restored, the original image is displayed.
* [COMPONENT] may be displayed as [RGB] depending on the settings of [Component/RGB-in select]. For more information, see the operating instructions.
Multi Monitoring & Control Software
Multi Monitoring & Control Software (Free) Lets You Control Devices in Groups
This free Panasonic software enables you to monitor and control up to 2048 devices over a LAN network from a single PC. As a monitoring function, the status of multiple devices can be listed in groups, and then detailed information on each device can be separately displayed. As a control function, control commands such as power ON/OFF, input switching and command inputs can be executed, and a schedule function can be used.
Cloning Function Saves Labor When Setting Up Multiple Devices
You can easily copy the setting data of a master display to other displays using USB memory. This saves labor when making screen settings during the installation of multiple devices.
* If the inch sizes/series for the displays differ, the cloning function does not operate. Use common inch sizes/series.
Early Warning Software
Compatible with "Early Warning Software" for Sensing Display Problems in Advance
The LF8U Series support Early Warning Software (optional: ET-SWA100), which monitors the status of devices (projectors or flat-panel displays) connected to an intranet, reports device failures, and gives advance warnings by detecting predicted abnormalities, after installation to the PC has been completed. The status of displays in an intranet is observed, and problems are forecast, the occurrence of other problems is sensed, and notification is sent to the user.
* The use of this software will not detect malfunctions in all devices and equipment in advance.
