Flexible and Expandable Digital Signage

Panasonic API Expands Application Functions
Panasonic's clear, intuitive API (Application Programming Interface) allows the expansion of application functions, enabling remote control of the display with no need for RS232C or other complicated applications.

Supports External Memory Devices
USB drives and microSD cards can also be used to expand the 8 GB internal memory storage capacity.

Supports Connection of Peripheral Devices
Peripheral devices like keyboard, mouse, or USB camera can be connected to AF1 Series displays, offering further expansion of their functionality.

Cloning Function Saves Time When Setting Up Multiple Devices
Using a USB memory device, you can easily copy data settings from a master display to other displays, reducing labor, and ensuring consistent multiple device setup.

Note: Function supported on displays of the same size and series only.

High Brightness and Off-Axis Visibility Design

Bright and Stylish IPS Display
The AF1 Series features efficient edge-LED IPS panel technology, providing brightness of 500 cd/m², and assuring uncommonly good off-axis visibility that maintains color accuracy even in bright ambient light situations. Additionally, the displays feature a slim 6.3mm (0.25") bezel that increases perceived image size.

Dependability You Can Count On

Fanless Design
The hardy fanless design prevents issues that may be caused by the intake of dusty air, thus allowing the displays to be safely installed and operated in high-traffic environments.

Failover and Failback Safeguards for Mission Critical Situations
The AF1 Series includes HDMI, DVI-D, and USB terminals. If an interruption to the main video and audio signals occurs, the system immediately switches to alternative signals. When the primary input signal is restored, the original content is automatically reinstated. These safeguards are absolutely essential when the displays are employed in control rooms, surveillance centers, and any other mission-critical applications.

Multi Monitoring & Control Software
This free software available from Panasonic provides monitoring and control of up to 2,048 devices via a LAN network—all from a single PC if needed. For monitoring purposes, the status of each device can be listed in groups, along with detailed information on individual displays that can also be separately shown. Control functions include power ON/OFF, command inputs, input switching, and scheduling.

Multi Monitoring & Control Software

Optional Early Warning Software (ET-SWA100 Series - sold separately)
Optional ET-SWA100 Series* Early Warning Software offers monitoring for displays and projectors that are connected to an intranet, and informs you when an abnormality is detected or there are symptoms of trouble. A monitoring server can be controlled remotely via tablet or PC, when this software installed.
