“The EX series will have an innovative impact on the large format information display market with their eco-friendly and highly efficient options, impressive image quality and sleek design,” said Jin-Hwan Kim, executive director in charge of ’ Visual Display Division. “Building on their first launch, we will continue to be at the forefront of the market with more user-friendly solutions and advanced technologies.”

The EX series, which consume significantly less energy than the existing models, are green products with Energy Star 5.0 certification. By incorporating LED technology, these models use up to 40 percent less electricity than LCD displays and produce less carbon dioxide and fewer hazardous substances. In addition, the option of a built-in PC eliminates the need to purchase an additional PC, resulting in higher efficiency and less maintenance cost.

The EX series also boast extreme thinness and lightness, which make them much easier to use. They are 35-to-40 percent lighter than other large information displays of the same size at about 15 kg (based on 46-inch), differentiating themselves from the conventional heavy and thick advertising displays.

The RJ45 port enables you to control the displays through a LAN cable wherever you are. The smart scheduling function, allows you to turn on and off the display, adjust the volume and set input sources by simply using the OSD.

The EX series is a perfect mixture of Samsung’s display technology and an eco-friendly concept which improves user convenience that will lead to the standardization in the market.
