They are 35-to-40 percent lighter than other large information displays of the same size at about 15 kg (based on 46-inch), differentiating themselves from the conventional heavy and thick advertising displays. Unlike the existing displays that take several people to install, the newest series can be installed conveniently and quickly.
In addition, the EX series features a 120 Hz panel refresh rate. This advanced technology enables faster image changes without motion blur, which deliver clearer advertising messages to the audience. The 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution and the high contrast ratio provide true-to-life picture quality. Magicinfo i, Samsung’s proprietary content management solution also allows you to control several displays easily by connecting them to a network.
Samsung has set the EX series apart by applying advanced technologies, which have not been used in conventional large displays, but provide a better user experience. The RJ45 port enables you to control the displays through a LAN cable wherever you are. The smart scheduling function, allows you to turn on and off the display, adjust the volume and set input sources by simply using the OSD.
The EX series is a perfect mixture of Samsung’s display technology and an eco-friendly concept which improves user convenience that will lead to the standardization in the display market.
