NEC manages commercial displays via NFC

NEC's P-Series displays can be set up from an NFC phone

NEC’s US display solutions division has introduced a range of large screen displays for commercial environments that use NFC and a mobile app to make it easy for staff to conduct set-up and maintenance tasks.

New NFC-enabled members of NEC’s P Series include four large format LED-lit screens ranging from 40 to 70 inches and suitable for use in demanding environments including quick service restaurants, retail and airports.

“Just hold the phone to the display and use the free app to read and write,” explains NEC. “Configure displays once in the app and then copy the settings to all the displays before they go up.

“The app can also be used to read relevant information such as serial numbers and a log file which can then be easily emailed and analysed,” adds the company. “This makes failure reporting more convenient and less expensive.”

The NFC-enabled displays in the range are the 40-inch P403, 46-inch P463, 55-inch P553 and 70-inch P703.
