Narrow Bezel for Seamless Video Walls
The VF2H/VF2 use a hidden area with a 0.44 mm width on the top/bottom and left/right of the "ultra-narrow bezel design." Even when an image is split between several displays, the bezel is not conspicuous, resulting in natural, dynamic large-screen 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.
DIGITAL LINK Simplifies Installation at Lower Cost
Based on HDBaseT™ technology, the DIGITAL LINK connection onVF2H/VF2 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.
- Up to 10 units may be connected in a daisy chain, but the number of connected units may be limited by the cables, the units used, etc.
- When 1 unit among a multi-screen system is operated by remote control, a remote control ID setting is required.
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 Viewing Angle
The Panasonic IPS panel achieves true color accuracy over a wider viewing angle than conventional VA panels, and little color variation.
Note: Graphic is simulated. Visibility depends on environment.
Highly Legible Panel Surface Processing
The VF2H/VF2 employs a panel with Advanced Anti-Glare (AAG) processing that uses the concave/convex surface to diffuse light from the sun and lighting equipment. Because it suppresses external reflections to maintain higher legibility, it is ideal for use in monitoring rooms and public facilities.
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 VF2H/VF2 Series is always set
Efficient 24/7 Reliability in Landscape or Portrait Mode
Durable panel materials and quality components ensures dependable 24-hour operation seven days a week. This makes the Panasonic LCD Video Wall Series ideal for applications where absolute reliability is critical. Further, these products are designed for either landscape or portrait orientation without affecting color, brightness, or operational life. This flexibility allows you to exploit installation space to fullest potential.
Note: 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 Safeguards for Mission Critical Situations
Failover and Failback functions prevent image interruptions by switching between two system inputs. This is ideal for digital signage in transportation systems where interruption of the image display is simply not permitted, and shops with 24/7 operation.
Note: Possible combinations of main/backup signals are limited.
Support Color Calibration
Colors are pre-calibrated prior to factory shipment, to minimize color differences between displays for multi-screen use. This makes it possible to create single images without any visible differences from display to display*
* There are cased, however, when the visual adjustments are needed once the video wall installed.
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 VF2H/VF2.
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.
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.
Delivers Stable Brightness for Up to 8 Years*
The VF2H/VF2 incorporates Long Life Mode and Auto 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.
Note: 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 actual brightness and operating period. The above figure shows the setting of long life mode "On2". "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.
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*1 allows media to be written to USB memory via LAN*2, perfect in situations where the display is difficult to access.
