Digital Signage Displays Crisp, Sharp Images

Getting the word out to customers has never looked so beautiful.

Many retailers and small businesses are investing in digital signs to capture customers’ attention. One widely used display product line comes from Samsung — the 400FP-2 40-inch professional LCD.

With 1920x1080 resolution, the 400FP-2 yields high-quality, high-definition images. It features a 4000:1 static contrast ratio and 40,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, providing crisp, full-motion images. Designed specifically for commercial applications including digital signs, the display supports a wide variety of connections, including VGA, DVI and HDMI.

While digital signs typically display marketing or other messages delivered from a media server, the 400FP-2 can also function in TV mode, using an optional TV tuner. Some small businesses with multiple screens in their facilities will, on occasion, show TV programming, so having a TV tuner is a real plus.
