This enables a wide range of new dual-image options (without the need for external processing) to be offered as standard specifications. The versatile features enhance digital signage applications, improve presentation capabilities and support innovative promotions. All Picture in Picture options and Side by Side modes can be managed by the remote control unit (RCU). Upgraded side by side mode In the full-screen mode, three display options are available; as well as a 50:50 split that s ideal for video conferencing, a 4x3 image can be selected which is tailor made for digital signage applications. This mode can be switched so that the smallest portion of the image is either on the left or right of the display. It s also possible to present the images in a portrait* format to enhance installation options. *External manipulation of the signal is needed Banner mode The display s versatility is further advanced by the banner mode, which allows text to be easily overlaid onto the screen. The banner — a 25% strip of the screen can be stationed at four positions (top, top-middle, middle-bottom and bottom) and its transparency adjusted between 0-80%. The feature provides a simple yet cost efficient and highly effective digital signage application; with one input connected to a PC, any standard offthe-shelf software can be used to author the banner content. Welcome to All Welcome to All Welcome to All Sub-image detection Intelligent Dual Screen Modes Thanks to Pure Drive Pro s processing power, images in dual screen mode are delivered with identical pin-sharp accuracy, Welcome to All ideal for video conferencing. Any two of the many inputs can be displayed together, either as two identically sized images Picture and Picture or as a larger main image next to a smaller sub image Picture out Picture . Main and sub images can be also be swapped over to switch the audio source. the main screen in the form of a small window. The sub image can be set to one of four sizes and the transparency of the window can be changed between 0 and 80%. In addition a Picture in Picture mode is available where the sub image can be displayed in any one of four corners of Select four sub-image sizes and the visual mode. Sub-image detection is an engaging feature. It enables a subimage to be presented in any corner of the display. When the sub-input is turned off, the PIP image disappears and when it s turned back on, it returns to the screen. This intelligent application is ideal to display time sensitive content, highlight a new promotion or intermittently show a company logo or snapshot of information. TECHNOLOGY FUNCTIONS FEATURES CONTROL VIDEO WALL EXPANSION SOLUTIONS F e a t u r e s Seamless Orbiter alleviates burn-in Conventional orbiter modes reduce ghosting by moving the displayed image by one pixel or more at regular intervals. Because viewers can notice the movement, it interferes with their viewing. The PDP-42MXE10 includes a unique Seamless Orbiter function that moves the entire image in extremely small steps of less than a pixel. The most effective orbiting pattern was adopted based on a variety of simulations, achieving the maximum possible mitigation of ghosting without viewers noticing the process. Conventional Orbiter Mode The entire image moves one or more pixels at a time, easily noticeable in meetings. Conventional PDP Seamless Orbiter Mode The entire image moves in extremely small steps undetectable to the human eye. Three types of processing can be selected to tailor the display s performance to the type of application and input — for example whether the content is primarily still or video images. PDP-42MXE10 Various display modes to alleviate burn-in Low power consumption and four energy saver modes Side mask brightness adjustment: Adjusts side mask brightness during 4:3 image display. Due to the efficiency of the Pure Black Panel, the PDP-42MXE10 s power consumption of 285W is the lowest in the industry. White signal display: Displays white over the entire screen. This restores ghosted locations to their former condition. Inverse mode: Reverses the image and full mask that turns the entire screen into a single colour. Soft focus: Blurs the edges of the image, making ghosting difficult to see. Efficiency is further enhanced by the addition of energy saver modes, which manage the peak intensity of high brightness images. An automatic mode is featured which uses an ambient light sensor to set the optimum mode for the local lighting conditions. Image adjustment Pro modes Other Features Under-Scan: Displays the complete video signal so that all broadcast information can be viewed. Two different sizes of multi-lingual GUI. Colour-Off: Reduces colour noise for monochrome video. Display Call. Image processing: Enables users to select from two modes designed to enhance the display of static images or video based content. Portrait mode GUI. Point Zoom. Intelligent Auto Set-up. Colour Detail Adjustment. Pure image: Displays input images without image processing except I/P conversion. Priority Input Mode.

SPECIFICATIONS TECHNOLOGY FUNCTIONS FEATURES CONTROL VIDEO WALL EXPANSION SOLUTIONS SPECIFICATIONS C o n t r o l High speed image switching for smooth presentations and displays The PDP-42MXE10 has a high performance dual image processing function that switches from one input image to another at the high speed of approx. 0.4 seconds. This ensures smooth, comfortable viewing of presentations in offices and displays at exhibition halls or event venues. 0.4 Seconds <---> Input 1 Dual Image PiP Freeze A PiP-freeze function is available to temporarily freeze a displayed image. The image can be grabbed via an RCU command to accentuate a part of a presentation or capture broadcast content. The picture can be displayed in PiP format or side by side mode. Input 2 RS-232C status feedback Programmable Timer When a command is transmitted from a control device to the PDP via the RS-232C interface, the PDP returns its status. This not only permits remote confirmation of current PDP status, but it can also specify the cause of errors (should they occur) to enhance service response. The PDP-42MXE10 provides high control capacity: combination connections, variable baud rate setting, acknowledge function and more. You can take advantage of a convenient weekly timer and seven programmable functions including power on/off, input selection, and activation of image burn-in prevention modes.

Possible configurations are 2x2, 3x3, 4x4 and 5x5. Two display modes have been designed to enhance Video Walls, Normal and Adjusted. In Normal Mode static information can be displayed without losing text within the bezel areas. It splits the image into four parts without losing any of the data that would normally be obscured by the PDP frame. Adjusted Mode divides the picture into four sections keeping the overall image complete as though looking through a window, ideal for displaying moving images. Video Wall functions include Power On Delay, ABL Link, Auto ID Setting and Repeat Timer. Power On Delay ABL Link Repeat Timer This function automatically staggers the powering up of each display to reduce the load on the power source. The ABL (Auto Brightness Limiter) Link function commands the video wall as if it were one display setting the brightness of each screen at a uniform level (operates only with 2x2 and 3x3 configurations). Repeat Timer allows the switching between of two different inputs signals for an adjustable amount of time. The user can display an input signal for a period of time and then switch to another input signal for a different amount of time before the sequence is repeated. In addition to controlling the time of this function, the user can control the Normal and Adjusted modes of each signal, and the number of divided images. The second input signal does not need to come from same source, multiple devices can be used as long as they all share a common Input address. Auto ID Setting With ABL Automatically sets an ID for each display connected via a combination control cable to permit simpler error-free setting (operates only with 2x2 and 3x3 configurations). Without ABL INPUT 1 - 2mins INPUT 2 Adjusted Mode - 3mins INPUT 1 - 2mins INPUT 2 Normal Mode - 3mins INPUT 1 - 2mins Variable INPUT 2 Adjusted Mode - 3mins It is not necessary to program each PDP separately as they are all controlled from the master PDP.
