Professional LED Displays
Around-the-Clock Communicators with
Streamlined Style, Versatile Installation
Sharp’s lineup has expanded to include PN-U553/U473/U423—three professional LED displays that clearly have what it
takes to get your message across. Designed for maximum impact, built for 24/7 durability, and sized for flexible installation,
these 55 (54.7 diagonal) , 47 (47 diagonal), and 42 (42 diagonal) inch displays represent a dynamic new breed of indoor
digital signage solutions. Thin and lightweight enough to ensure an easy fit in stores, offices, and public spaces,
PN-U553/U473/U423 displays boast the outstanding image quality needed to deliver truly compelling signage.
Excellent Image Quality
A brightness of 700 cd/m2 (PN-U553/U473) or 500 cd/m2 (PN-U423) supports
these LED displays in their digital signage duties. And PN-U553/U473/U423
displays boast 1,920 (H) x 1,080 (V)-pixel full-HD resolution to help ensure
that none of the detail or visual impact is lost. Thanks to full-HD resolution,
everything from fine text to intricate graphics is stunningly crisp and clear.
Thin, Lightweight Design
PN-U553/U473/U423 displays owe their exceptionally thin profiles to edge-lit
LED backlighting, where LED elements are located at the edges of the panel.
Streamlined for a pleasing appearance and minimal protruding parts, these
displays measure just over 2 inches at their thickest point and weigh only
about 55/42/35 lbs, making for easy and flexible placement in offices, public
spaces, stores, and other commercial establishments. The stylishly thin
profiles also enable attractive wall mounting.

Energy Efficiency
Edge-lit LED backlighting on PN-U553/U473/U423 displays helps ensure
reliable performance with low power consumption. In fact, PN-U553/U473/
U423 displays consume significantly less energy than conventional
CCFL-backlight displays.

Built-In Temperature Sensor
Should the temperature inside a display rise, a built-in sensor
will detect it, and the monitor will automatically lower the
brightness level of its backlight system.
Expanded Connectivity
A comprehensive range of input/output terminals, including
the DisplayPort™ interface, comes as standard on PN-U553/
U473/U423 displays to give customers a variety of
connection possibilities.
Image Functions
Mirror Display Mode (Daisy Chain)*
With Mirror Display mode, the same image can be displayed
on a daisy chain of PN-U553/U473/U423 monitors
to create a powerful impact of visual repetition.
* Via a DVI-D connection.
Display Management
ID Setting
Thanks to an RS-232C interface, PN-U553/U473/U423
displays* can be easily controlled and monitored from a
central location via a PC. Each monitor can be assigned an
individual ID code to specify when remotely turning that unit
on or off, changing its input, or making various screen
adjustments and settings.
* PN-U553/U473/U423 monitors can be connected together in a daisy chain
Enlarge (Zoom) Display Mode
Multiple monitors can be grouped together to display one
enlarged image, thanks to Enlarge (Zoom) Display mode, which
corrects the framing of that image to eliminate misalignment
between monitors.
