Sampo Professional, a leading provider of network-enabled flat-panel display solutions for the commercial, education and government sectors, and home theater environments, has introduced the 2005 line of feature-rich LCD and plasma displays. Provided as a standard feature across the entire 2005 product line, Sampo IP-addressable LCD and plasma displays provide users with the ability to remotely control their digital displays through an existing network infrastructure through a simple, intuitive Web browser interface.

By incorporating network control capabilities into its value-packed product line, Sampo Professional's digital display solutions lower the cost of multiple unit deployments and increase operational efficiencies, while enhancing emerging video applications such as video on demand, emergency and security notification, video paging, distance learning, and videoconferencing.

In addition to supporting basic control functions such as power on/off, picture-in-picture (PIP), picture-over-picture (POP), and screen and sound adjustments, users can remotely switch video sources, giving school administrators the ability to instantaneously switch displays to a predetermined video source for applications such as video paging or emergency message broadcasts.

"While Sampo enjoys a strong reputation in the education community for high-quality, feature-rich video products, it is undoubtedly the network control capability that is generating the greatest amount of interest and positive feedback from the education sector thus far this year," explained Brian Ballard, vice president of Sampo Professional. "Whereas the campus-wide deployment of flat-panel technology was once out of reach by all but a few well-funded organizations, school administrators are now finding that flat panel technology is a viable, logical replacement for existing legacy video display technologies or in new classroom deployments. Besides the obvious safety advantages to deploying lightweight flat panel displays instead of heavy CRT-based monitors, administrators are increasingly attracted to the enhanced functionality provided as standard features in the Sampo Professional product line. While we've always been able to set ourselves apart from the competition by delivering to the education sector an industry-leading combination of value, quality and function, we're taking it a step further in this year's product line by providing them a product that will enable administrators to communicate more effectively and operate more efficiently."

The value-packed Sampo Professional 26-Inch WXGA LCD Display (LME-26X8), 32-Inch WXGA LCD Display (LME-32X8), 42-Inch WXGA LCD Display (LME-42X8) and 42 and 50-Inch WVGA and WXGA Plasma Displays (PME-42V8 and PME-50X7) include an extensive set of advanced features that includes: standard NTSC tuners, advanced audio processing, HDCP Digital Content Protection System, high-definition picture-in-picture and side-by-side picture, ATSC signal compatibility, and built-in audio amplifiers.

The displays also feature a variety of connectivity options including: RF, DVI, RGB input and loop-out, composite / S-Video inputs, SD/HD component video inputs, discrete audio inputs, audio and subwoofer outputs, and RS-232 and RJ-45 control ports.

The LME-26X8, LME-32X8, LME-42X8, PME-42V8 and PME-50X7, which are covered by Sampo Professional's industry-leading two-year warranty, are available now through value-added resellers nationwide at list prices of $1,499, $1,999, $3,999, $2,999 and $4,499 respectively.
