Multi-Screen System Dynamically Displays Images in Large Spaces
The Multi-Display function enlarges images up to five times their original size, both vertically and horizontally. It enlarges images by the same zoom ratio in both vertical and horizontal directions, such as 2x2, 3x3, 4x4 and 5x5, or by different ratios in order to effectively use vertically or horizontally elongated spaces. Plasma display versatility can be further enhanced by freely selecting the zoom ratio to match the installation space.
*Some degradation occurs when images are enlarged.
*Provide an appropriate air-conditioned environment because the ambient temperature varies depending on the installation condition and location.
Display ID Control
To prevent remote control errors that can occur when multiple displays are installed in close proximity, each display in a multi-screen system must have a unique ID. Assigning a display ID assures reliable remote control operation.
* The optional ID Remote Control Unit (EUR7636070R) is required.
Multi AI Control Function
By applying AI control to the brightness signal of the entire input signal using the same video processing as for a single-screen image, this function achieves a uniform brightness level over the entire image.
Seam Hides Video Off Mode
This mode displays a full-screen image, including edges (the entire width of the frame) of the display panel. This is especially suitable for displaying text information, since no words are hidden by the frame.
4x Digital Zoom
This function lets you enlarge a portion of an image up to four times its normal size and display it on the full screen. This function can help give presentations greater impact.
*Digital Zoom does not work in Multi Display or Dual Picture mode.
*Some degradation occurs when images are enlarged.
Weekly Command Timer
This function makes it easy to automate display operation so there's no need for an external scheduler. You can set a variety of operations — power on/off, image source selection, screen saver functions and more — to activate at specific times on specific days of the week.
Automatic Picture Positioning
Simply press the Auto Setup key on the remote control to position the picture. This function automatically corrects horizontal and vertical picture positions, clock phase, and dot clock when an analogue RGB signal is selected as input. The adjustment results in optimal standard values for horizontal and vertical picture sizes.
*If the dot clock frequency is 162 MHz (for PF Series; 108 MHz for PH Series) or higher, DOT CLOCK and CLOCK PHASE cannot be made.
*When digital RGB signal input, DOT CLOCK and CLOCK PHASE cannot be made.
The picture adjustment values set using the Picture menu and advanced settings can be stored in the display's memory as profiles. Up to eight combinations can be stored, and the preferred profile can be selected to match the video source being used.
• Studio W/B Mode
Lets you set the color temperature that best matches applications in broadcast stations and studios.
• Display Size Setting
Displays video signals so that the top, bottom, right and left screen edges that are usually cut off become visible.
• Studio Gain Mode
Increases the contrast to eliminate whiteout.
Audio Input Select
The video and audio input can each be independently selected. This makes it possible to achieve flexible combinations of images and sounds.
Screen Saver Functions
A variety of screen saver functions help lower the risk of uneven phosphor aging. You can also use the timer to set the screen saver operating time.
|NANODRIFT SAVER||Moves the image smoothly by 1/16 of a dot at a time.|
|OVERLAY SCROLLING BAR||The image brightness will be decreased and a white bar will scroll over it.|
|SCROLLING BAR ONLY||A white bar will scroll from left to right. The image will not be displayed.|
|NEGATIVE IMAGE||A negative image will be displayed on the screen.|
|SIDE PANEL ADJUSTMENT||Brightens the black bands on the sides of the screen while displaying images in a 4:3 format.|
|PEAK LIMIT MODE||Lowers the peak brightness level (image contrast).|
|WHITE SCREEN||White will be displayed on the full screen.|
• New Screen Saver NANODRIFT SAVER
The new NANODRIFT SAVER reduces image retention four times*1 more effectively than previous systems. It uses smooth, fine image movement to minimize the possibility of image retention without blocking the view.
*1: Compared to our "wobbling" screen saver.
*NANODRIFT is a trademark of Panasonic Corporation.
Extended Life Settings
It's easy to make settings that extend the display life because all items that prevent image retention are grouped into a single menu.
Auto Power Off
This function automatically turns off the display power when the screen saver operation ends.
A broad range of environment-friendly functions help minimize energy consumption.
• DPMS (Display Power Management Signaling): Power is automatically turned on or off in response to a sync signal from the PC connected to the built-in PC input terminal.
• Auto Power Off: When you're using a device connected to the multi-function slots, the display panel goes into standby mode after about 10 minutes if no sync signal is received.
• Power Save Mode: Reduces the display's brightness.
• Standby Power Save Mode: Reduces power consumption when on standby. (Start-up may take a few moments once the display is in this mode.)
