Narrow Bezel for Seamless Video Walls
Narrow frames on Panasonic's LCD Video Wall Series reduce bezel-to-bezel distance to a near-invisible 1.8 mm* (0.07"). Even when viewed close-up, screen borders are almost indiscernible, resulting in truly spectacular large-format images.
* Bezel-to-bezel distance refers to the combined top and bottom (or left and right) bezel-width of adjacent displays in video-wall configuration. The gap between displays is not included. Note that a gap of 0.5 mm (0.02") or more is required when installing multiple displays.
IPS Panel Improves Off-Axis Visibility
High-resolution IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel technology ensures that pictures displayed on screen remain clearly visible even when observed from oblique angles: vital for signage applications as well as in control rooms where clear visibility is necessary at all times.
Wide-Angle Color Accuracy
Panasonic IPS panel preserves true color accuracy for a wider proportion of the specified 178-degree viewing angle than conventional VA panels.
Note: Graphic is simulated. Visibility depends on environment.
Anti-Glare (AG) Surface Treatment
The AG layer on LCD Video Wall Series displays scatters reflected natural or artificial light, improving visibility. In particular, the AG treatment enhances screen clarity in surveillance stations and public facilities.
Minimize Downtime and Improve Efficiency
Optional ET-SWA100 Series* Early Warning Software monitors all display devices over the network. Administrators can monitor device status in real time, view operation history, and receive alerts if abnormalities are detected. Monitoring servers with this software installed can be checked via tablet or notebook PC browser. As well as minimizing downtime, the software reduces unnecessary visits to remote display sites and saves service time and cost.
* Part number suffix may differ depending on the license type. Note that some potential device failures cannot be predicted.
DIGITAL LINK Simplifies Installation at Lower Cost
Based on HDBaseT™ technology, the DIGITAL LINK connection on VH1H display supports audio, video, and control signal transmission over long distances, and can also be used to daisy-chain multiple displays via a single cable. This eliminates the need for video splitters and other routing devices.
Note: CAT5e or higher STP cable required.
DIGITAL LINK Reduces Cabling Cost and Installation Complexity
Combines AV and Control Signals Save time and money with Panasonic's simplified DIGITAL LINK connection.
Precision Video-Wall Mounting System
Optional Installation Mount* makes setting up a spectacular video wall comparatively quick and painless. As well as saving time and reducing labor cost, the rigid mount also eliminates potential panel-surface alignment inconsistencies with the use of an automatic magnet system.
The Panasonic LCD Video Wall Series also features optional cover frames for extra protection against impact.

The following is the maximum number of units when installing a multi-screen using the optional TY-VK55LV2 metal fittings.
•TH-55VF1H: 5 columns, 6 rows
Attach the vertical and horizontal position adjustment dials of the metal fittings at the starting point after placing it at an eccentric position on the installation direction side instead of the center position when it is opened.
• Landscape setting only.
Video Wall Manager Software and Auto Display Adjustment Upgrade Kit
Panasonic's free Video Wall Manager software can be used with LCD Video Wall Series displays. With this software, you can calibrate display color using a color sensor, adjust display settings, and control and manage data via PC. If software is upgraded with an optional TY-VUK10 Auto Display Adjustment Upgrade Kit, brightness and color among multiple displays can be automatically calibrated using a compatible camera (Nikon D5200/D5300/D5500/D5600)*.
* Available only with normal zoom lens: AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140 mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II, AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6G VR
Delivers Stable Brightness for Up to 8 Years*
The VF1H Series incorporates Long Life Mode and a new Brightness Adjustment Function. In Long Life Mode, backlight brightness is optimized to extend product life. Auto Brightness Adjustment Function corrects light output automatically according to the rate of backlight deterioration to maintain constant brightness for longer.
* Figure is approximate when operating continuously for 24 hours x 365 days.
Note: Assuming operating conditions of 25 °C (± 2 °C). Environmental conditions and conditions of usage may affect brightness longevity and operating period.
"On2" delivers approximately 60 % maximum specified backlight brightness. Auto Brightness Adjustment cannot be turned on if panel illumination period has exceeded 1,000 hours.
Note: Images and graphs are simulated.
Failover and Failback Safeguards Maintain Image Display
Digital signal inputs comprise one or two DVI-D terminals together with HDMI, DisplayPort, DIGITAL LINK, and USB inputs. If the primary audio-video signal is interrupted, the display immediately switches to an alternative input. When the primary signal is recovered during backup display, the original image is restored automatically.
This makes the Panasonic LCD Video Wall Series ideal for use in control rooms and in other applications where uninterrupted playback is essential.
Note: Possible combinations of main/backup input signals are limited. For details, please see the User's manual.
Improved Multi-Screen Video Visibility
When high-speed video is played on multiple screens in a video wall, some image misalignment can occur between vertically adjacent panels. VF1H Series feature a Reverse Scan Function that alternates the scanning direction of vertically adjacent displays to improve image alignment. Frame Control Function, meanwhile, adjusts the number of video frames displayed to reproduce images with natural fluidity.
Reverse Scan Function
Reverses direction of image scanning to smoothly play enlarged video on multiple screens.
Frame Control Function
Adjusts timing of images to reproduce enlarged video more naturally
Note: Graphic is simulated. Arrows show scanning direction during video playback.
Multi-Screen Image Syncing via USB and Media Updates via LAN
The Panasonic LCD Video Wall Series is adapted to digital signage—just connect USB memory devices to inputs on each display in 2 x 2 multi-screen configuration for automatically synchronized 4K (4 x 1080p) images. No external devices or processors are required. This function also serves as a backup in case the primary video source fails. Multi Monitoring & Control Software allows media to be written to USB memory via LAN, perfect in situations where the display is difficult to access.
Backlight Optimization Improves Contrast
Highly efficient direct-lit LED backlighting with Local Dimming assures high 500,000:1 contrast performance. Backlight brightness is automatically optimized to deepen blacks in dark areas and boost whites in light areas of individual scenes displayed on screen for more realistic and immersive picture quality.
Local Dimming Function
Note: Local Dimming on VF1H Series is always set.
Multi-Screen System for High-Impact Images in Large Spaces
Multi-Display Function enlarges images to up to 100 times their original size*. It can increase image size using the same zoom ratio in both vertical and horizontal directions to suit 2 x 2, 3 x 3, 4 x 4, 5 x 5, and 10 x 10 video-wall configurations, or can apply different ratios to suit alternative screen layouts. In this way, users can maximize image size according to video-wall size and shape.
* Up to 2 x 2 zoom is available with media input via USB for VF1H.
Note: A mounting bracket compliant with VESA standards is required for wall-mounting. Some degradation occurs when images are enlarged. Be sure to provide adequate ventilation as operating temperatures can vary according to multi-screen configuration and environment.
