Eco-friendly LCD monitor and bright SMART Signage Outdoor displays recognized for excellence

in energy efficiency and outdoor visibility



SEOUL, Korea — February 11, 2015 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced that the Samsung S27E650D Eco-Friendly, Plane-to-Line Switching (PLS) monitor and Samsung 46-inch OH46D and 55-inch OH55D SMART Signage Outdoor displays were recognized by international certification organization TÜV Rheinland with industry-leading validations for the products’ eco-friendliness and high, outdoor visibility .

 

TÜV Rheinland validated the 27-inch LCD monitor’s zero-watt power consumption, making the Samsung ECO-Power Off function the world’s first 0.00W power consumption technology. The OHD Series Outdoor displays also were validated for high visibility performance in outdoor environments.

 

The two validations were presented to Samsung Electronics at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2015, the largest international B2B display exhibition in Europe, on Tuesday, Feb. 10.

 

“Samsung Electronics is honored to be recognized for our excellence in sustainability, visibility and performance by one of the most well-respected certification organizations in the industry,” said SEOGGI KIM, Senior Vice President, Samsung Electronics. “We are committed to creating new possibilities for our customers, and these validations reflect how we are taking innovation to the next level.”

                                                                                                                     

World’s Most Eco-Friendly Monitor

Samsung’s S27E650D Eco-Friendly LCD monitor delivers an unmatched user experience, while maximizing energy-savings and sustainable design for reduced environmental impact.

 

Using the monitor’s ECO-Power Off mode—a first-of-its-kind—the S27E650D offers 0.00W power consumption when in off mode. This is significantly lower than the 0.3W to 0.5W experienced with the average monitor, leading to significant savings in energy, resource and cost over time.

 

As part of evaluation process by TÜV Rheinland, the monitor underwent rigorous testing under the validation standard of <0.005W (IEC62301), which is based on the IEC62301 standard.

 

Along with superior power consumption, the monitor is designed with a 30 percent recycled plastic and PVC-free body. The recycled plastic and PVC-free body offer health and environmental benefits throughout the monitor’s lifecycle, beginning with production, where it reduces the emission of harmful pollutants. During use, the monitor keeps PVC-related toxins out of the user’s home, school and office. Finally, when correctly disposed, the monitor prevents PVC from leaking into soil, crops and water supplies.

 

High Outdoor Visibility

Verified for qualification of its outdoor usage, the Samsung OHD Series Outdoor displays are designed to help business owners produce brilliant messaging with highly-visible, energy-efficient and reliable LED BLU displays. With 3,000 nit brightness, a 5,000:1 contrast ratio and a patent-pending glass that cancels reflections, the 46-inch OH46D and 55-inch OHD Series displays ensure messages are being seen vibrantly even in demanding conditions and direct sunlight.

 

For the high visibility outdoor performance validation from TÜV Rheinland, the OHD Series displays underwent a thorough product readability test in outdoor, direct sunlight. Each display delivered superior performance with high visibility and image quality compared to regular glass, as well as enhanced picture quality, expression and viewing angle based on the ISO9241-307 standard.

 

Built to be both durable and flexible for the outdoor environment, the OHD Series displays can also withstand extreme temperatures. The displays feature a slim and innovative steady cooling system, ensuring 24/7 message delivery.

 

Designed to be dustproof and waterproof, the OHD Series displays’ components are also IP56 certified for superior performance even under the toughest conditions.
