Exceeding the brightness of its predecessor PN-V601 more than twice, Sharp offers a new digital signage display called PN-V602. The 60-inch giant was manufactured in Sharp's most advanced plant in Sakai, where panels are cut from 10G mother glasses (2.88 x 3.13 meters) and made into professional LCD monitors.
As befits such a modern display, the backlight consists of a full-field LED module. The LED BLU maximizes the brightness of the PN-V602 to 1,500 cd/m2 and, due to a local dimming function, provides for a high dynamic range with low energy consumption. Specific details on the contrast or the power consumption are not revealed by the maker, only the resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels is mentioned.

Even without full-HD display, PN-V602 screens are suitable for the use as a large video wall or advertising boards. Only 6.5 mm thick, the housing web generates an almost one continuous image. Optionally, the monitors are also available with mirror frame; according to the manufacturer, the reflexion of the display content in the mirror frames makes the transitions between the different monitors almost invisible.
