For compelling digital signage in shopping malls, transportation hubs, college campuses and sports and entertainment facilities, the Sharp PN-A601 is a smart choice. This 60" class LED-LCD monitor offers ultra-high brightness for superb visibility, even in brightly lit window-facing indoor settings. The PN-A601 also provides exceptionally high image quality in full 1080p HD, with the energy savings efficiency of a full-array LED backlight in combination with local dimming.
With its ultra-high brightness, the PN-A601 provides eye-catching digital signage in office complexes, hotels, public spaces, store window displays and many other brightly lit interior applications. The display's exceptionally high contrast ratio further helps ensure images are clearly visible, even in indoor settings with high ambient light.
Breathtaking image quality
The PN-A601's exceptional image quality comes from Sharp's industry leading LCD technologies. Sharp proprietary UV2A technology incorporated into the 60" class LCD panel provides highly efficient use of light from the full-array LED backlight while simultaneously preventing light leakage. The results are exceptionally high quality images with bright whites, amazingly vivid colors and extremely deep blacks. Sharp's full-array LED backlight, with LED elements evenly positioned across the entire panel, helps ensure that Sharp multi-screen displays are bright, beautiful and uniform. In addition, the PN-A601's full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels helps guarantee everything from next to intricate graphics are stunningly crisp and clear.
Local dimming for high contrast and superb energy efficiency
Much of the PN-A601's exceptional performance - including outstanding black levels, high contrast and superb energy efficiency is due to local dimming of the LED backlight. Local dimming allows specific groups of LEDs to be dimmed for greater control of brightness and darkness in different areas of the screen. Since LEDs in a black area of the screen image can be independently turned off, local dimming can help to considerably reduce power consumption. This helps the PN-A601 deliver significantly better contrast and brightness compared to conventional LCD monitors, while utilizing less power.
Dual screen display
Picture-in-Picture (PIP) mode allows an AV-sourced image to be displayed within a PC-sourced one, while Picture-by-Picture (PbyP) mode puts images from AV and PC sources side by side for split-screen viewing.
Mirror display mode
With mirror display mode, the same image can be displayed on a daisy chain of PN-A601 monitors for the powerful impact of visual repetition.
The brightness sensor function automatically adjusts backlight brightness to complement surrounding ambient light levels. In dark environments, backlight brightness automatically lowers, helping provide optimal viewing, along with energy savings.
