simultaneously.
Incorporating superb signal processing technology,
precise images with smooth picture edges are
reproduced making the PFM-42X1 ideal for digital
signage that requires clear reproductions of small
images and characters. These applications range
from event signage and advertising at retail stores
and shopping malls, to information displays at
airports, train stations, schools, conference rooms,
and securities exchanges. Wherever you need to
grasp the attention of visitors, the PFM-42X1 is the
ideal choice.
The PFM-50C1 is equipped with a wide XGA
resolution display panel, while the PFM-42V1
incorporates a wide VGA plasma display panel. Like
the PFM-42X1, the PFM-50C1 is ideal for applications
in which clear and legible images of small characters
need to be reproduced. The high brightness achieved
by the PFM-42V1 makes it an ideal plasma display to
catch the attention of passers-by.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
High-Quality Picture
Digital Visual Interface (DVI)
The PFM-42X1 incorporates a high-resolution
widescreen native XGA (1024 x 768) plasma
display panel with a 16:9 aspect ratio, while
the panels adopted by the PFM-50C1 and
PFM-42V1 are wide XGA (1365 x 768) and
wide VGA (852 x 480), respectively. All of
these plasma displays offer excellent picture
quality with a high contrast ratio, resulting in
clear image reproduction.
The PFM-42X1 is equipped with a DVI-D HDCP
interface capable of receiving signals from
either a DVI-equipped PC or DVI-equipped A/V
equipment, such as a DVD player, while the
PFM-42V1 is equipped with a DVI-D interface
for use with a DVI-equipped PC. The
advantage of this interface is that digital data
and video can be converted for viewing
without the loss of image quality associated
with the signal conversion of digital to analog.
Picture and Picture Function
Note: DVI interface is not supported on the PFM-50C1,
PFM-42X1N, and PFM-42V1N.
Both the PFM-42X1 and PFM-42V1 have a
Picture and Picture function. Two separate
signals can be input to these units to display
two separate 4:3 aspect ratio images, each
variable in size. Signal Combinations can be
seen in the table below.
Note: The picture and picture function is not supported on
the PFM-50C1. The PFM-42X1N and PFM-42V1N
require either the BKM-V10, BKM-V11, or BKM-V12
for picture and picture.
Multi-Layer,
AR-Coated Protection Panel
The anti-reflection (AR) coating on the glass
protection panel reduces light reflection for
clear, high-contrast picture viewing.
