Panasonic’s LF20 Light-Weight LCD
Panasonic says that its new light-weight LCD displays have been designed specifically for digital signage. Available in 42-inch and 47-inch, the full high-definition (FHD) LF20 series have a slim design of only 101mm thickness with an 18 mm bezel – however the company doesn’t say how light is light!
The new screens offer a high brightness of 700cd/m2 and an IPS panel for wide viewing angles, which allow images to display clearly in bright locations and high traffic areas, according to the company.
“These new FHD displays are perfect for large, open spaces as they’re lightweight and ideal for multi-screen installations,” said Enrique Robledo, marketing manager, Panasonic Professional Displays Europe, London, UK.“
Whether it’s a single screen or multiple, there’s industry demand for bright displays that can deliver sharp, clear images when placed in open spaces with high levels of natural light, such as train stations, shopping centers, schools or banks.”
Panasonic’s fanless design eliminates dust build-up and lowers operating noise, which can often limit where displays are placed, said the company. Power consumption can also be controlled automatically as built-in sensors detect ambient lighting and automatically adjust the back light brightness to match the viewing environment, according to the company.

…interesting description from Panasonic, considering Samsung’s EX series is just 39mm thick and the regular FP platform is 119mm thick (only 17% thicker than Panasonic’s claimed ‘thin’ design…).
The fanless design is interesting as that typically been a consumer display trait (across all vendors) it would be interesting to crack one of these open to analyse it….
