NEC Display Solutions Adds Elegant 55-Inch Display To P Series Large-Screen Family

Open Pluggable Specification, DisplayPort and DVI Loop-Through Among Benefits of Second-Generation, High-Definition P552 Display

CHICAGO--NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the addition of a 55-inch model to its top-of-the-line P Series large-screen displays.


"We were able to create a more efficient display while adding to the already rich feature set that customers expect from the P Series product."

The P552 is a professional-grade, industrial-strength LCD display intended for 24/7 operation in venues such as quick-service restaurants, airports, public information environments, healthcare facilities and retail stores.

The P552 is enhanced with Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) technology, digital loop-through capabilities, reduced depth, 10 percent lower power consumption and built-in 10-watt speakers. The OPS-compliant expansion slot adheres to the Intel specification that aims to standardize and simplify slot-oriented digital signage installations.
