Mr. Photoshop in action. I don’t really think these new displays are square.

Sharp has debuted a new value-priced but pro-grade series of small to mid-sized displays aimed at the digital signage market.

The PN-Y series is available from 32-inches and up to 55. The PN-Ys are touted as an economical alternative to the PN-R series that was announced a few weeks ago, and are about 30 percent less cost than the units the Ys are replacing.

A Sharp press release says the new panels have particular versatile mounting and orientation options, a built-in media player to run content on USB drives, and slimmer bezels than previous iterations.

“We’re excited to introduce the PN-Y series to the market and to answer the call from our customers for displays that provide simplicity without sacrificing the professional-grade sophistication and 24/7 durability they need in their products,” says Gary Bailer, Director of Product Planning & Marketing, Pro AV Products, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “This provides a multifaceted signage solution with around-the-clock reliability and easy content distribution at an outstanding value.” 

The units start shipping end of year and into January.
