PN-V550A

LCD MONITOR

Sharp’s 55-Inch Full-HD Monitors Expand Choices for Video Wall Installations

High-Quality Digital Signage Solution Offers Style and Precision

Sharp’s 55-inch full high-definition PN-V550A professional LCD monitor features a 3.5 mm* ultra-slim bezel that gives you the flexibility to build video walls with the dimensions to grace virtually any commercial or public space. Whether installed in a shopping mall, hotel, control room, transport hub, or conference hall, a bank of these monitors will convey your message with overwhelming style and precision. Four monitors set up in a 2 x 2 configuration, for example, will let you display every last pixel of native 4K Ultra HD (3,840 x 2,160-pixel) content on the equivalent of a 110-inch screen. Thanks to Sharp UCCT (Uniform Colour Calibration Technology), colour reproduction and brightness are beautifully consistent on each individual LCD monitor and thus across the entire video wall.

  • * 3.5 mm is the minimum combined frame width for neighbouring monitors, excluding the gap between the monitors.

Dynamic Video Wall Setup Delivers High Visual Impact

Whether in a commercial or business setting, multiple full-HD
PN-V550A monitors can be joined together to create an eye-catching video wall that expands the reach of your message. Multi-monitor configurations are easy to assemble and easy to control via the RS-232C interface or via a network.

Ultra-Slim Bezel

The ultra-slim bezel on a PN-V550A enables you to combine multiple units to create a virtually seamless digital canvas. The bezels of adjacent monitors in a video wall combine for a total bezel width of just 3.5 mm*1—1.2 mm on the right and bottom sides, and 2.3 mm on the left and top sides*2. This enables the display of large, crisp images with minimal distraction and maximal impact.

  • *1 Minimum combined frame width for neighbouring monitors, excluding the gap between them.
  • *2 Non-display area for neighbouring monitors is 3.9 mm.

Excellent Image Quality

The PN-V550A combines full-HD (1,920 x 1,080-pixel) resolution with a display brightness of 500 cd/m2, to deliver stunningly bright and detailed images. Full-HD resolution ensures that everything from fine text to intricate graphics is displayed crisply and clearly. Four PN-V550A monitors set up in a 2 x 2 configuration, for example, can beautifully render every single pixel of 4K Ultra HD (3,840 x 2,160-pixel) content in a form equivalent to a 110-inch LCD monitor. What’s more, Sharp UCCT (Uniform Colour Calibration Technology) realises brilliant uniformity of colour and brightness.

Sharp UCCT (Uniform Colour Calibration Technology) Significantly Increases Uniformity of Colour*

To varying degrees, unevenness of colour and brightness may occur in LCDs. To compensate for this, Sharp UCCT ensures uniformity of colour and brightness across the entire LCD monitor by properly adjusting colour levels with high precision and high definition (at the pixel level).

Hybrid Correction of RGB Colour and Brightness

The display characteristics of each small area in the LCD are measured in terms of various RGB input signals. Uniformity of colour and brightness is then calibrated and corrected for each RGB signal element in a given area, as shown in the graphs below.

Image Quality and Functions

Brightness Sensor

The Brightness Sensor* function ensures clear visibility by automatically adjusting backlight brightness to complement surrounding brightness levels. In dark surroundings, backlight brightness automatically lowers, providing optimal viewing and energy savings as well.

  • * Requires optional PN-ZR01A.

In bright surroundings
Dual Screen Display

Picture-in-Picture (PIP) mode allows an AV-sourced image to be displayed within a PC-sourced one (or vice versa), while Picture-by-Picture (PbyP) mode puts images from AV and PC sources side by side for split-screen viewing.

Mirror Display Mode (Daisy Chain)

With Mirror Display mode*, the same image can be displayed on a daisy chain of PN-V550A monitors for the powerful impact of visual repetition.

  • * Up to five monitors (using DVI daisy-chain connection).

User-Friendly Design

Four-Corner Carrying Handles for Safe Setup
To ensure safe handling of the PN-V550A, all four of its corners are fitted with robust carrying handles. Together with the monitor’s light weight of 25 kg, these handles enable safe transport and easy, time-saving installation—whether vertically or horizontally.

Environmentally Friendly Design
The PN-V550A conforms to the RoHS Directive restricting the use of hazardous substances.
Choice of Installation Mode
The PN-V550A offers a choice of landscape or portrait installation, allowing customers to select the mode that best suits their display content and application.
VESA-Compliant Mounts
VESA-compliant mounts provide right/left pivot and swivel, ensuring a high level of safety when the PN-V550A is mounted on a wall or suspended from a ceiling.

Reliability/Durability

24/7 Operation
Built solid, the PN-V550A is ideal for use in 24-hour stores and in other demanding professional applications that require round-the-clock operation seven days a week.
Power on Delay
The Power on Delay function allows a time delay between the startup of each monitor in video walls or multi-monitor installations. This reduces the load placed on the power supply when a number of monitors are turned on at the same time.
Built-In Temperature Sensor

Should the temperature inside a monitor rise, a built-in sensor will detect it, and the backlight system will automatically adjust to keep the temperature within operational level*.

  • * The monitor automatically goes to standby mode when the internal temperature remains consistently above operational level.

Display Management

ID Setting
Thanks to its RS-232C interface, the PN-V550A can be easily controlled and monitored from a central location via a PC. Each monitor can be assigned an individual ID code to specify when remotely turning that monitor on or off, changing its input, or making various screen adjustments and settings.
RS-232C straight cable

Scheduling
For total ease of operation, the Schedule function allows up to eight settings to be pre-programmed for automatic monitor turn on/off at precise times on a daily, weekly, or one-time basis.
Log Saving/Output
To boost the troubleshooting efficiency of service technicians, operating logs, signal changes, information on operating irregularities, and other such data can be saved and tracked.
Hardware Diagnostics
The Hardware Diagnostics function detects any irregularities in power supply voltage and indicates it on the monitor.
E-Mail Notification

With the E-Mail Notification* function, display status updates will be sent periodically to a specified e-mail address. A notice will also be sent if a malfunction occurs.

  • * The monitor automatically goes to standby mode when the internal temperature remains consistently above operational level.
Web Browser Setting

The PN-V550A can be easily operated through a Web browser and monitor control software*.

  • * Available separately
  • * Requires optional Interface Expansion Board.
SNMP Support

Display status, continuous operating time, and other parameters can be monitored over a local area network using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)*.

  • * Requires optional Interface Expansion Board.
Self Adjust Function
With an analogue PC connection, when a change occurs to the input signal timing, the clock phase will automatically adjust accordingly.
