Public Display
Sony’s new B-Series displays – the FWD-55B2, FWD-46B2, and FWD-42B2 –
incorporate LED backlighting, and offer high picture quality along
with low power consumption.

FWD-32B1 Public Display
Low Power & Energy Efficient
Landscape/Portrait
The FWD-55B2, FWD-46B2, and FWD-42B2 offer low power
consumption with LED backlighting (approx. 30% less
than a conventional CCFL model from Sony*). This feature
helps to reduce the total cost of ownership by lowering
the running cost.
*Per unit area
High Quality Images
Because they use commercial-grade LCD panels and
cooling systems, these displays can be positioned either
vertically (portrait) or horizontally (landscape) with no
change in the backlight level or
service life. This flexibility in orientation
makes it possible to create many
different imaging effects in a wide
variety of spaces.
All B-Series displays achieve high brightness of 450 – 500
cd/m2 and a high contrast ratio of 4000:1*. This quality
helps to enable excellent color reproduction and high
visibility in indoor applications.
*The FWD-32B1 has a 3000:1 contrast ratio.

Slim Installation Design
The depth of the FWD-55B2, FWD-46B2, and FWD-42B2 is at
least 30% less than that of a conventional CCFL model
from Sony. For slim installation, the Signal In and Signal
Out terminals are incorporated into this profile, and do
not protrude from the unit.

Network Display Management
Users can monitor the display status and control multiple
displays over a LAN, VPN, or the Internet using Microsoft®
Internet Explorer® 7.0 or later.

Multi-display
All B-Series displays can present a single large dynamic
image, simply by combining up to 16 display units (1x2,
1x3, 1x4, 2x1, 3x1, 4x1,2x2, 3x3, 4x4)*.
*Multi-display function supports progressive signals only.

Screen Saver
User-friendly Remote Control
Images with constant brightness (such as data and still
images) can cause screen burn-in on a display. To
prevent this, three screen saver patterns are provided and
can be adapted for customer usage.
Each display comes with a dedicated remote
control unit, designed with careful attention
to button shapes, sizes, spacing, and layout.
When working with multiple displays, you
can use the remote’s ID MODE button to
control each display separately.
Eco Mode
With Eco mode function power consumption is reduced
using power-saving technology*. Compared with
Standard mode, power consumption using the High
setting is approximately 45% less in Eco mode and using
the Low setting is approximately 30% less in Eco mode.
Control Panel Lock
The control panel lock function can disable the control
panel of a display to prevent unauthorized changes to
display settings.
*Brightness is also lowered.
Power-on Delay
VESA-compliant Flexible Mounting
Switching on multiple displays at the same time can
potentially cause a damaging power surge. The Power-on
Delay feature avoids this risk by allowing the user to
staggering the timing so that each unit powers up at a
slightly different time.
VESA-compliant mounting points help ensure safety when
units are mounted. Optional mounting brackets sold
separately.
