Samsung has announced the global launch of its P-Series standalone SMART signage, the world’s first Tizen-powered premium displays. The P-Series displays, including the PHF (700nit brightness) and PMF (500nit brightness; except 32-inch display) models, will also be the first to feature the upgraded fourth generation Samsung SMART Signage Platform (SSSP 4.0).
The P-Series displays come in a slim-depth (29.9 mm.) and narrow bezel (6.9 mm.) design which makes them among the thinnest on the market.
“The launch of Samsung’s new P-Series signage represents a landmark moment for our business, as we’ve made our already industry-leading visual displays even more capable with the addition of the Tizen platform to our SSSP,” said Seog-gi Kim, Senior Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “By equipping our displays with faster and more versatile content management tools, our customers will be better prepared to solve their most prominent customer engagement challenges.”
Performance & Usability
The slim-designed PHF (43-, 49- and 55-inch) and PMF (32-, 43-, 49- and 55-inch) series standalone displays are the first in Samsung’s line-up to showcase content using the SSSP 4.0’s reinforced graphics engine. The displays support smooth transitions between a variety of formats, without black screens or interruptions.
The Tizen-powered P-Series displays are designed for uninterrupted, 24/7 operation in any location, reducing maintenance burdens and improving peace of mind for users. Both the PHF and PMF models are IP5X certified, validating their ability to perform at optimal quality when exposed to a range of environmental factors and making them ideal for locations subject to dust and dirt, including subway stations and bus terminals.
Samsung’s P-Series displays condense complex display operations into a single, easy-to-navigate hub that does not require external PCs or devices to function. With the new MagicInfo Server 4.0, users can manage their entire signage portfolio through a central remote server in real time and make adjustments across individual displays or display groups from any location.
A complementary toolset, including the Web Simulator and Tizen Emulator programs, further extends content development opportunities by enabling users to build and launch web-based management applications directly within the SSSP 4.0 platform.
Samsung’s P-Series displays also contain an integrated centralized infrared receiver (IR) to drive more convenient operation. Although hidden from view, the centralized IR is compatible with remote control devices and drives faster and easier navigation than most standard displays, which place the IR component in harder-to-operate corner locations, allow.
