Samsung Makes LED Adoption More Affordable Than Ever with the Launch of New MD Series Displays at DSE 2012

Samsung Electronics America Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, the number one worldwide brand of professional commercial display LCD products according to DisplaySearch, is exhibiting several new commercial LED-backlit displays among its latest innovations in digital signage technology at the Digital Signage Expo (DSE), this week at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth #811.

Samsung is showcasing its new MD Series, which includes four LED models ideal for businesses looking to make the transition from CCFL to LED and the SL46B, a super high brightness display solution designed for retail and commercial use.

“Samsung continues to drive technology leadership in digital signage providing solutions that enable businesses, no matter their size or budget, to adopt and realize the many benefits of LED backlit displays,” said Kevin Schroll, product manager of commercial display at Samsung Enterprise Business Division. “In particular, the MD Series helps ease the transition for customers desiring to make the move to LED, but not willing to pay a premium or sacrifice functionality.”

MD Series

Samsung’s new MD Series now includes four LED models that offer customers a variety of feature sets and size options, including 32-, 40-, 46- or 55-inches (exact measurement or “class”). With the introduction of the series, Samsung is speeding up the enterprise transition to LED by making it a more affordable solution for all businesses, without having to sacrifice on key features.

Engineered with energy efficiency in mind, the MD Series provides an expansive visual experience that is ideal for high-traffic areas, including commercial, public and corporate information display. The design elements facilitate enhanced performance with the added benefit of cost-savings. At just 19mm, a narrow bezel allows audiences to focus more on the content, and the slim depth of the series offers more available space for other uses.

The MD series is also light weight, permitting easy installation and efficient space management and with reduced heat emission it more energy efficient and has less impact on the immediate environment. It also sports an embedded media player for easy content play and updates.
