NEC MultiSync LCD8205
The 82-inch LCD8205 can be installed in either portrait or landscape orientation and even tiled together for a video wall up to four displays high and four displays wide, to create a video canvas and 328-inch diagonal viewable area. Automatic ambient light sensors also monitor changing light conditions to subtly optimise the brightness level to suit the environment. The new display also performs with 600cd/m² high brightness for easy viewing in bright rooms and a high 5000:1 contrast. NEC’s XtraView+ technology delivers a 178-degree viewing angle for off-axis viewing, which is crucial in public settings where viewers are often viewing from the side. The LCD8205 has 1920 x 1020 high-definition resolution and accepts inputs from a number of formats including DVI, HDMI, composite, S-Video, RCA and RS-232 control. It also allows five picture modes for quick user optimisation of viewer experience. The LCD8205 has thermal protection and internal heat sensors. It features TileMatrix and TileComp technology to create a seamless video wall.

The X550 desktop virtualisation kit aims to deliver a rich multimedia computing experience to five users on one PC, and with a second X550 kit, can connect up to 11 sharing a single PC. The NComputing solution is based on the idea that today’s PCs are so powerful that the vast majority of applications only use a small fraction of the computer’s capacity. Each X550 unit includes five NComputing XD2 access devices, a PCI plug-in card and the vSpace virtualisation software. The efficient X550 has also been designed to deliver rich multimedia and full-screen video to users. Each access device uses one watt of electricity, compared to 110 for a standalone PC, NComputing claims. The appliance measures 119mm x 82mm x 27mm and accesses power via the PCI card using a Cat 5 or 6 cable. A green LED at the front of the unit displays power and connectivity. The X550 can run on either Windows or Linux-based systems and supports most applications including email, Web browsers, media players, office suites and multimedia.
