Costa Mesa, California-based BenQ, an audio/visual technology company, announces the launch of what it says is the world’s first digital signage series to achieve Pantone-Validated status. The company’s Smart Signage Series will assure on-screen color fidelity and matched interoperability with Pantone-qualified color production devices, it says.
The first display from the series to be released is BenQ’s 65″ SL6502K, which achieves 4K UHD resolution and carries Pantone-Validated qualification.
“The SL6502K exemplifies BenQ’s digital color expertise distilled from our heritage of global visual display leadership,” says Conway Lee, president of BenQ Corp. “(Our company) now provides a color-consistent, end-to-end solution from design and production via monitors to in-store deployment and broadcast via digital signage software for retail display integrators, fashion designers, product brands and design studios who trust the Pantone system to deliver accurate color production.”
The company says that along with 4K UHD and Pantone-Validated visual performance, the SL6502K is a self-contained, 24/7, all-in-one public information display. Facilitating content creation, the SL6502K includes X-Sign 2.0 content management software with more than 150 templates for quick creation, distribution and scheduling of custom content.
With this announcement, BenQ claims to be the first company to develop a Pantone-supported signage editing suite paired with a Pantone-Validated digital signage display.
