Panasonic LFP30 Series of Professional LCD Displays Named a DIGI Award Winner by Digital Signage Magazine

This Outdoor Digital Signage Solution is Dustproof and Highly Water Resistant

SECAUCUS, N.J.--Panasonic, a provider of professional plasma and LCD display and digital signage solutions, today announced its LFP30 Series of professional LCD displays was named a DIGI Award winner by Digital Signage magazine. The LFP30 Series won the Best New Generation Display Device, Large Screen category. The LFP30 Series are built as a reliable display solution for full-outdoor and semi-outdoor environments, distinguished by high brightness, low power consumption and a wide range of professional features.

"As a result, Panasonic is building solutions that meet these needs. This award is recognition of the work Panasonic has done to design and engineer products that allow customers to get the most of their digital signage deployments, even in harsh conditions."

The displays are resistant to harsh environmental conditions such as heat and humidity, extreme cold and, with its IP66 rating, are dustproof and highly water resistant. The LFP30 Series' aluminum casing provides corrosion-resistance and additional structural strength. Unlike most outdoor displays, which require separate bulky and expensive enclosures, the LFP30 Series requires none. The LFP30 Series is available as the 42-inch TH-42LFP30W and the 47-inch TH-47LFP30W.

The trans-reflective liquid crystal design of the LFP30 Series screens ensures excellent visibility (1,000cd/m2) in bright, outdoor locations, allowing the displays to reduce power consumption in these environments. Most outdoor digital signage solutions counter light reflection issues with an increased backlighting, which results in greater power consumption. The LFP30 Series' low power consumption means that both sizes meet Energy Star Displays 5.1 standards.

These characteristics make the device perfect for environments such as:

Open-air cafes and restaurants as menus and advertising panels
Shopping malls as advertising panels and store guides
Public transportation hubs as schedule, route guide and advertising panels
Factories for production line control
Sports facilities for training videos and fan information
Quick-serve restaurants for menu boards and drive-thru lanes

"As the market for digital signage continues to grow, customers want to use display solutions in a wider range of environments," said Rick Albert, Vice President, Flat Panel Displays-Hospitality, Panasonic. "As a result, Panasonic is building solutions that meet these needs. This award is recognition of the work Panasonic has done to design and engineer products that allow customers to get the most of their digital signage deployments, even in harsh conditions."

The DIGI Awards recognize the resellers, integrators and service providers who have gone the extra mile to ensure success for their clients, thereby furthering the digital signage industry as a whole. Additionally, they recognize the best New Products for the digital signage and DOOH market.

"As Chair of the Judges Committee for the DIGI Awards, I want to congratulate all the Winners of 2012 DIGI Awards," said David Keene, editor, Digital Signage Magazine. "The judges had a hard time selecting from the varied and excellent entries. We honed in on the entries that really stood out in showing us not just technology packages but how digital signage and DOOH best practices are playing out, in the field, with real-world solutions and products."

The TH-42LFP30W and TH-47LFP30W are sold via authorized Panasonic resellers at estimated prices of $8,500 and $11,000, respectively. Sales inquiries for the LFP30 Series of professional LCD displays should be directed to or 877-803-8492.
