Display Werks Inc. has announced the availability of its XC series of LCD flat panel displays, designed specifically for digital signage and retails space markets.

The XC series, or "extended computer," allow computer signals such as video, touchscreen communication, stereo audio, mouse, and keyboard to be transmitted up to 228.6m of Cat.5 cable and be directly connected to the display.

"This is really a breakthrough for digital signage and retail dynamic displays," said Mark Harriman, President of Display Werks. "For years flat panel display technology has been limited by a six foot VGA cable. We have made the LCD displays more conducive to the retail and digital signage markets by allowing them to be easily extended out to the floor and around the retail area with less wiring, less intermediate boxes, and less space."

The company is offering the XC displays in 15- and 17-inch sizes with plans to introduce larger LCD sizes in the near future. Different versions of the XC display allow for daisy chaining multiple displays together or even supporting features such as touch screen, audio, keyboard, and mouse.

The Cat.5 cable simply clicks into the display with an RJ-45 connector. One version of the XC display has breakouts for keyboard, mouse and line level stereo audio. The panels can be panel, flush, or VESA mounted.
