Remember the age old debate between which was better, Plasma or LCD? I can tell you that early in my career in the AV industry during the mid to late 2000’s I was asked to answer that question several times a day both at work from customers and from friends and family. Honestly, I don’t miss that discussion very much; however it seems to me there has been less of an emphasis on picture quality over the last five years since LCD and now LED backlit and edge lit LCD has become the dominant technology which is strange to me. The quality of the image should be one of the main factors to consider when selecting a display for a professional application.
There are several characteristics to evaluate such as the viewing angle, black level, brightness, accurate color reproduction and motion blur. One of the problems we are faced with is that since that there is not a common standard used by all manufacturers to measure these specifications often spec sheets can be misleading. Thankfully, our industry provides many opportunities for integrators and dealers to look at these products at several trade events throughout the year.
When we started discussions with Toshiba to distribute their new line up of professional displays one of the things that I was most attracted to was the picture quality on all of the displays I previewed from them starting with their entry-level TD-E series all the way through the line including the TD-Z ruggedized 24/7 professional series and the TD-X series of ultra-thin bezel video wall displays. Knowing that the professional display market is somewhat crowded Toshiba needed to bring to market a product that could differentiate themselves from the pack, and they have succeeded in doing that.
The comprehensive lineup includes professional-grade large format displays, 4K Ultra HD displays, touchscreen displays, video wall displays, video wall servers, and accompanying control systems and accessories specifically designed for use in demanding commercial environments.
Almo was selected as one of a very small handful of distributors to partner with Toshiba in bringing their displays to the market. Almo resellers will be in a great position to specify Toshiba professional displays and not worry that the product is over distributed. Additionally, programs like bid registration, discounts for government and educational customers, an evaluation sample program, and a strong three year warranty with advanced exchange will help round out the offering.
