Elo debuts 55-inch display with tablet-like performance

22 Jan 16

Digital touchscreen provider Elo has unveiled a 55-inch modular interactive digital signage display which it says offers tablet-like performance on a large format screen.

Neeraj Pendse, Elo director of interactive digital signage, says the new display is rugged enough to withstand heavy use in a commercial setting.

“This combination of high-performance display and a sensitive, reliable touchscreen further enhances what was already the broadest portfolio of interactive digital signage solutions on the market,” Pendse says.

The display targeted at retailers and commercial operations, with Elo saying retailers are turning to touchscreens to unite the online and in-store shopping experience and increase customer engagement, while businesses have used the technology to enhance collaboration in an office setting and increase productivity.

The 5501LT has a 1920 x 1080 full HD resolution display and includes 10-touch infrared technology, auto-switching between active input sources to ease use in meeting rooms, and support for serial control input with the use of adapter cables.

A new video input auto-detects the last good signal from the internal computer module or other external video sources.

Elo says at 87mm, the 5501LT is Americans with Disabilities Act and International Business Council compliant for wall mounted installations.
