Review: NEC V652 65-inch Commercial Display

Adapts To Change

Built-in sound also is new to V-Series monitors. The V552, V652 and V801 now come with integrated low-profile,10-watt speakers that are adequate for deployment in public spaces. For high-quality audio settings, V-Series units also provide connections for external speakers or sound systems. Also shown here is the lower portion of the V652's OPS slot, which adheres to Intel's Open Pluggable Spec for digital signage and other applications running from a built-in Windows PC. Not shown are rear-mounted handles on each corner, for maneuvering the 114-pound display (126 pounds with stand). Multiple picture-in-picture and side-by-side modes are adjustable in size, location and scaling to adapt to just about any need. A ticker feature sets aside a portion of the screen for a news feed. Brightness settings can be assigned to specific inputs and will automatically adjust when different sources are selected. The V652 also is touch-ready and can accept NEC's 10-point touch overlay accessory.
