A growing variety of requirements along with
a growing market
The LFD market is experiencing ongoing growth, and the
LED portion of the market is also increasing. Customers
seek the benefits of LED technology, such as a slim,
lightweight design and reduced power consumption.
As the market expands, two different needs for content
management and playback capability are emerging. The
customer who is adopting digital signage for the first time
or on a small scale typically wants simple content creation
and management. Embedded media players offer an
all-in-one design with greater flexibility and simplicity of
content management instead of an additional PC module.
Figure 1. High performance, efficient digital signage with Samsung
ME / MD Series
Samsung slim, light LED large format displays (LFDs)
offer lower power consumption for reduced operating
costs and easier, more economical installation for reduced
startup costs. Samsung Performance Signage Display
(MEC, MDC Series) LED LFDs also offer high-performance
features that include:
PC
(Media player)
Professional embedded
Media player on chip
Figure 2. The market focus is shifting from PC-type media players
to embedded media players.
Along with the need for content management simplicity,
the display of content on a single screen is becoming
more complex in mature markets. Content display includes
entertainment, informative text and images, background
music, widgets, advertisements and interactive media.
Customers in this segment require the full capability of
content creation and management, as well as digital
signage device management. With the Setback Box
(SBB), an additional PC module and MagicInfo Premium
Server, the customer can fulfill these requirements.
The remote controller provides not only content creation
and playback capabilities, but also local scheduling of
content playback.

For customers who are already using MagicInfo™ Lite
in their organization, MEC, MDC Series also provides
MagicInfo™ Lite with the MagicInfo™ Premium S Player.
MagicInfo™ Lite is the light version of the embedded
media player that provides the basic content playback and
scheduling capabilities.
Figure 3. The type of content displayed on a single screen
is becoming increasingly complex.
Modern digital signage must address the two completely
different market requirements on a single device to support
various customer business environments.
Expand the range of media display options with
the economical, built-in Samsung Smart Signage
Platform
Fully manage and control devices and content with
the additional PC module and MagicInfo Premium
Solution
Samsung Smart Signage Platform eliminates the need
for customers to purchase, install or use an external PC
or media player. Magicinfo Premium™ S player and
MagicInfo™ Lite applications perform the media player
functions.
MEC, MDC Series supports a detachable SBB-A type
PC module design for enhanced practicality. A user can
affix the additional PC module to the back of the display
and install MagicInfo™ Premium i Player in the attached
PC module. MagicInfo™ Premium i Player works with
MagicInfo™ Server over a network, and provides full
user management and control over network devices and
content playing. The MagicInfo™ Premium i Player is
featured at the high end of the MagicInfo™ media player
family. It provides full content support, including Internet
content, Really Simple Syndication (RSS) content, multiple
content types, effects and even integration with data in a
database.
The embedded MagicInfo™ Premium S Player and
MagicInfo™ Lite enable the LFD to operate as a
standalone unit. A user can conveniently access
multimedia files and templates saved in USB memory
simply by plugging the USB into a port. Multimedia or
other content can be saved in internal memory. Users can
then create customized content with preinstalled templates
in LFD, using only the remote controller provided with LFD.

A super-clear panel that enhances
readability
The world’s first embedded digital
signage and image rotation
Achieve a more aesthetic look with a slim,
practical design that simplifies installation
Enhance readability and attract viewers with
extraordinary picture quality
A narrow bezel helps direct audience attention to the
content. The slim bezel depth of 16.2~17.3 mm in
the MEC Series provides an aesthetically pleasing
appearance. The narrow bezel also leaves additional room
for installation. Performance Signage Display (MEC, MDC
Series) is lighter than conventional models.
The Performance Signage Display (MEC, MDC Series)
Ultra Clear Panel provides sharper, more detailed images
and enhanced picture quality. The panel reduces light
scatter and reflection to enhance readability.
Figure 5. MEC Series edge-type LED LFDs feature side-panel lamps
with fewer LEDs and an environmentally sound, streamlined design.
Digital signage conditions can be optimized by reducing
the amount of heat radiating through the display area.
Conventional LFDs emit consistent amounts of heat across
the breadth of the displays. Samsung LFDs diminish the
heat and spread it around the sides of the screen. This
heat disbursement helps to create a more enjoyable
environment, especially when employees and customers
are in close proximity to the displays.
Designed for quick, easy installation, the LED LFDs can
usually be set up in minutes with little effort. Because of
the lightweight design, the displays require less support to
hold or carry. The streamlined dimensions make moving
the displays more convenient and straightforward.
The edge-type and direct-type designs offer slim panel
proportions, which means that less space is needed for
the monitors.
High Contrast Ratio (MEC, MDC Series) and high
brightness (MEC only) support a more attractive, vibrant
display. Contrast ratio enhancement provides more
detailed images.

MEC Series LED LFD technology
Samsung MEC Series is economical and gentle on the
environment. MEC Series edge-type LED feature LED
lamps located on the sides of the panel. The lamps emit
light on the display sides, resulting in a much thinner
screen that requires fewer lamps than conventional panels.
With fewer LED lamps, power consumption and heat
emission are reduced and a slim, lightweight design is
achieved.
Rotate images more economically with Image
Rotation
The MEC and MDC Series displays offer Image Rotation,
providing image orientation rotation from portrait to
landscape for greater display flexibility. For convenience
when rotating the image, two ratio options are available:
original ratio or auto full sizing ratio. Image quality is
preserved when the images are rotated, with no loss of
ratio.
Image Rotation enhances the message with
two ratio options: original ratio and automatic
full-size ratio.
