Rental & Staging Systems InfoComm Product Award
Samsung’s ME75B LED-backlit LCD was honored by NewBay Media’s Rental & Staging Systems as Best Flat Panel Display-Larger than 70”. The awards are designed to showcase the most innovative new commercial AV products introduced between July 2012 and March 2013. At 75-inches, the Samsung ME75B is the largest LED commercial display that uses the edge-type BLU, which not only uses less power and emits less heat than conventional CCFL LCD displays, but also drastically reduces both the weight and depth of the display, making it easier and more efficient to mount.

“It’s an honor to see Samsung continue to gain recognition for bringing new and innovative solutions to market that are really changing the game for the digital signage industry,” said Tod Pike, senior vice president at Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “As a leader in commercial display technology, we are committed to providing comprehensive solutions, such as Samsung’s MagicIWB 3.0 and Smart Signage Platform, that enable businesses to adopt and realize the benefits of digital signage.”
