PN-HB851 / PN-HB751 /


Versatile High-definition Signage with Built-in SoC Controller

The PN-HB851/HB751/HB651 is a monitor you can trust to get your message out there. What sets it apart is a built-in system-on-a-chip (SoC) controller that allows it to deliver digital signage straight out of the box. Daily operation is a breeze, thanks to on-board content distribution software.
Also, SHARP e-Signage S allows you to create and manage professional-grade content. And optional upgrades give the monitor even more flexibility to interact with external devices. It all adds up to a powerful signage solution that’s built to engage.

Out-of-the-Box Digital Signage Solution

Built-in SoC (System on a Chip)

The PN-HB851/HB751/HB651 has a powerful integrated SoC controller driven by an Arm® Cortex® hexa-core processor. The SoC comes with 4 GB of memory, 32 GB of storage, and integrated Android OS (7.1). These monitors are ready to display signage right out of the box.

Support for H.265/HEVC

PN-HB851/HB751/HB651 monitors support not only H.264/AVC but also H.265/HEVC. The latter is a next-generation high-efficiency video codec that reduces the communication burden during video transmission. Your content takes on a new level of depth and presence, thanks to the sheer scale and precision of these screens.

SHARP Open Architecture Platform

This platform allows third-party software developers to create custom signage applications. This opens up rich possibilities for digital signage in retail, office, and other settings. Certification under Google’s Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) assures compatibility with third-party Android apps.

  • Note: For details, please consult with your local authorised Sharp dealer or representative.

Smart Connectivity

The PN-HB851/HB751/HB651 supports high-speed wireless LAN and features built-in Bluetooth® connectivity. This lets you deliver content—and connect equipment—wirelessly.

Flexibility and Expandability

Superb 4K LCD Panel

The PN-HB851/HB751/HB651 is specified for 4K Ultra-HD (3,840 × 2,160-pixel) resolution and equipped with a variety of inputs to support 4K60p playback*. These monitors can express all the detail and visual impact of your selected content. A brightness of 350 cd/m2 supports them in their digital signage duties.

  • * 4K playability depends on PC and system configuration.

Flexible Settings

The PN-HB851/HB751/HB651 is designed for easy installation. You can install it in a landscape or portrait orientation or even face up. And you can tilt it too—either backward up to 90 degrees or forward up to 20 degrees. Such flexibility gives you more freedom to meet today’s demanding signage needs.

    Note: Please consult with your local authorised Sharp dealer or representative regarding tiltable angles and other installation conditions.

HDBaseT Receiver Board (PN-ZB03H) (Option)

HDMI video*1/audio and control signals can be received via a single LAN cable*2 from up to 100 metres away. Compatibility with HDBaseT 2.0 allows you to remotely operate a PC from a USB device connected to this board*3.

  • *1 Video signals up to 4K30p can be transferred.
  • *2 Category 6 or higher shielded cable (available commercially).
  • *3 Requires an HDBaseT 2.0-compatible transmitter (available commercially). Not all USB devices are supported.

Wireless Board (PN-ZB03W) (Option)

This allows up to 10 devices—including Mac or Windows® computers, smartphones, and tablets—to be connected simultaneously to the monitor without any cable hassles. Input from four devices can be displayed in a 2 × 2 split screen, with images displayed at up to 1080p resolution. Enabling such wireless collaboration is a great way to enhance productivity in work or educational environments.

    Note: Transferred screen images can be displayed at up to 1080p resolution.

Ready for Versatile Signage Support

Autoplay with Media Player

Displaying still images or videos as signage content couldn’t be easier. When the monitor is powered on, the built-in media player automatically starts playing content stored in internal storage or on a USB memory device or microSD card. A simple schedule function allows you to pre-register seven patterns for when to start/stop the content playback. In a slideshow, you can add visual effects between the still images. You can also make playlists that combine still images and videos. The PN-HB851/HB751/HB651 lets you enjoy the benefits of simple digital signage without any extra software, special skills, or even a PC.

Web-Based Signage

The PN-HB851/HB751/HB651 features a pre-installed HTML5 browser on the SoC as well as built-in support for Bluetooth and a high-speed wireless LAN. This makes it easy to show web content on the monitor as signage content.

  • Note: Web-based content can be displayed at up to 1080p resolution.

SHARP Content Distributor

This software makes it easy to update the content to be displayed on multiple LCD monitors. Through simple and intuitive PC operation, you can schedule what content gets distributed, when it gets delivered, and which monitors show it. Take advantage of a convenient signage solution that lets you distribute content in a timely manner to multiple monitors.

  • Note: SHARP Content Distributor is available via the downloader on the bundled CD-ROM.

SHARP e-Signage S

This versatile signage software provides total support for creating, scheduling, distributing, and managing a wide range of signage programs on Sharp LCD monitors in a variety of locations. You can make and edit signage programs easily through simple drag-and-drop operation. As well as laying out diverse content, you can create display schedules and monitor the operational status of designated LCD monitors. Sharp offers an array of solution packages to match a variety of signage needs, from a single standalone display to a network of multiple monitors—all without any hassle. The PN-HB851/HB751/HB651 comes bundled with the Standalone Edition of SHARP e-Signage S. It also includes a signage player pre-installed on the integrated Android OS.

Image Quality and Functions

DisplayPort Daisy Chain

Up to four PN-HB851/HB751/HB651 monitors can be set up in a daisy chain configuration by connecting their DisplayPort terminals. This lets you display the same content simultaneously on all screens.

Enlarge (Zoom) Display Mode
Multiple monitors can be grouped together to display one enlarged image, thanks to Enlarge (Zoom) Display mode, which corrects the framing of that image to eliminate misalignment between monitors.

User-Friendly Design

Built-in Speakers
Built-in 10 W + 10 W rear speakers eliminate the need for external speakers and ensure a stylishly streamlined profile.

Reliability / Durability

16-Hour Daily Operation
The PN-HB851/HB751/HB651 can run 16 hours a day, 7 days a week. Whether in an office, retail, or other location, you’ll get ultra-reliable daily performance.
  • Notes:
  • 1. Rebooting the OS once a day is highly recommended to maintain stable operation.
  • 2. When POWER SAVE MODE is set to OFF, the integrated SoC controller stays on even in standby mode.
Power on Delay
This feature lets you delay the startup of each monitor in a multi-monitor installation. This reduces the load placed on the power supply when multiple monitors are turned on at the same time.
Built-in Temperature Sensor
If the temperature inside a monitor rises, a built-in sensor detects it and the monitor automatically lowers the brightness level of its backlight system.

Display Management

ID Setting

Thanks to an RS-232C interface, PN-HB851/HB751/HB651 monitors* can be easily controlled and monitored from a central location via a PC. Each monitor can be assigned an individual ID code to specify when remotely turning that monitor on or off, switching its input, or making various screen adjustments and settings.

RS-232C straight cable

  • * PN-HB851/HB751/HB651 monitors can be connected together in a daisy chain configuration.
For total ease of operation, the Schedule function allows up to eight settings to be pre-programmed for automatic monitor turn on/off at precise times on a daily, weekly, or one-time basis.
Self Adjust Function
With an analogue PC connection, when a change occurs to the input signal timing, the clock phase will automatically adjust accordingly.
