Panasonic Australia will demonstrate its first Open Platform professional LCD display at the upcoming Integrate Expo in Melbourne from 25 to 27 August 2015.

Panasonic will preview the new LF8P Series professional LCD displays featuring the company’s all-new Android and HTML5-based Embedded Open Platform, which allows for easy porting of digital signage software to the display, eliminating the need for external media players.

Describing the new LCD display as the ‘new wave’ of digital signage, Chris Maw, Product Marketing Manager, Panels and Projectors, Panasonic explained that they will be demonstrating their display with SCALA’s customisable digital signage software, and demonstrating how content can be accessed from the cloud.

With the digital signage market trending towards self-contained, network-connected displays and the Internet of Things, Panasonic is focusing its research and development resources on designing a smart, intuitive, developer-friendly operating platform that adds real value for end users. By using Android architecture with HTML5 capability, Panasonic has created a fertile ecosystem for the development of third-party applications specifically for digital signage, commercial enterprises, and the classroom.

Following the development of its new digital signage solution, Panasonic aims to collaborate with a number of third-party software developers to provide the end user with the broadest possible diversity of applications tailored to meet individual requirements. These applications will ensure an embedded signage player can reduce installation complexity, allow for improved signage system mobility, and enable operation from remote locations, contributing to lower total cost of ownership.

The LF8P Series will be available in 42", 49" and 55" models, offering high brightness with outstanding picture quality and eye-catching visibility. The panels are built for continuous 24/7 reliable operation. The LF8P Series with Embedded Open Platform will be available in Australia in early 2016.
