Today, roughly 30 percent of residential custom installation firms perform light commercial and commercial A/V installations.
Helping to fulfill the need for easy-to-install solutions that meet the needs of commercial clients is the Brea, Calif.-based manufacturer ViewSonic. Adding to its selection of display products, the West Coast company has just introduced its new CDM Series of displays.
“ViewSonic’s new CDM Series of commercial displays are a cost-effective and installation-friendly line of commercial displays specially engineered for digital signage applications,” says Erik Willey, product marketing director for ViewSonic Americas. “The CDM Series offers robust features from its industrial design, brightness and functionality. With connectivity versatility, including HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort with loop-through, as well as LAN and RS-232 support, the CDM Series makes installations easy.”
Available in January 2017, the CDM Series is available in a choice of three sizes:
- The 43-inch CDM4300R (MSRP is $999)
- The 49-inch CDM4900R (MSRP is $1,300)
- The 55-inch CDM5500R (MSRP is $1,700)
The CDM Series is rated to produce 450 nits of brightness, as well as 3H hardness anti-glare IPS panels, and thin 9.6mm bezels.
The products also incorporate built-in media players that utilize quad-core processors, along with 16GB eMMC of storage that's expandable to 32GB. ViewSonic points out the displays also feature Micro-SD, USB multimedia video playback, and connectivity options for Ethernet and Wi-Fi.
In addition, the CDM Series comes with content management software, seven channels of content storage, integrated speakers and built-in web browsers for your light commercial needs.
