LED-Backlit PID Brings Brilliant Imaging, Incredible Versatility, and Power Savings to Signage Installations

BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, today announced the release of the dazzling new 50-inch SV500 public information display (PID). Designed to turn heads in retail, hospitality, corporate, and education sectors, the versatile commercial-grade panel features FHD resolution, 400 nits of brightness, and flexible installation options to create videowalls of up to 10 x 10 units easily. Equipped with BenQ’s Multiple Display Administrator (MDA), the SV500 makes signage system management extremely simple via remote monitoring and control capabilities, creating the newest member of the market’s value-conscious signage category.

Featuring 400 nits of brightness and Full HD 1080p resolution across 50 inches, the LED-backlit SV500 panel can be used in both portrait and landscape modes — making it easy for integrators to provide engaging signage content that meets any installation requirement. Perfect for quickly creating large videowalls, a series of slim-bezel SV500 units can be daisy-chained together without complicating setups via video signal splitters. Equipped with in/out VGA and DVI ports, the SV500 also allows users to increase flexibility by displaying content from either analog or digital sources.

“The SV500 was engineered to maximize PID versatility while providing users with a combination of performance and affordable videowall capabilities,” said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. “By using MDA to monitor and control multiple units in addition to the SV500’s USB plug-and-play functionality, the panel allows shops, universities, hotels, and office buildings to access a simpler, more flexible solution for their everyday digital signage requirements.”

Using simple USB plug-and-play, the SV500 allows operators to insert content-loaded thumb drives directly into the panel’s USB port to access files or enable direct playback — displaying both audio and video without the need for any additional cabling, software, or accessories. To deliver increased environmental and functional benefits, the SV500 allows administrators and IT managers to simplify panel operations and maintenance via BenQ’s MDA — enabling easy content scheduling, on/off powering, and remote monitoring and control — regardless of system configuration. MDA also works in real time; tracking each panel’s voltage use and temperature to protect panels and automatically send email alerts should anomalies arise.

Now shipping, the SV500 is available at an MAP of $1599. More information on the full line of BenQ products is available at
