Sharp PN-R556 / PN-R496 / PN-R426 LCD MONITOR

Find the Right Angle for Your Message

PN-R556 / PN-R496 / PN-R426

With PN-R556/R496/R426 professional LCD monitors, you have more scope than ever to set up your digital signage in the most eye-catching way possible. Not only can these monitors be suspended from a ceiling, they can also be installed face up, face down, or at a tilted angle. The PN-R556/R496/R426 offers such a wide variety of installation options, you’ll be sure to find the ideal setup to match your location and signage needs. DisplayPort 1.2 connectivity comes standard, and the interface can be expanded with an optional HDBaseT™ 2.0 receiver board. You’ll enjoy more convenience and more flexibility in terms of system design. PN-R556/R496/R426 monitors do a stylish job of making your key message even more visible to your intended target.

Flexible Installation

Excellent Image Quality

Thanks to their 1,920 (H) x 1,080 (V)-pixel resolution, PN-R556/R496/R426 monitors express all of the detail and visual impact of your selected full-HD content. Everything from fine text to intricate graphics is rendered crisply and clearly. Brightness of 700 cd/m2 further enhances their performance in professional digital signage applications.

Adaptable to Various Settings

Whether in a landscape or portrait orientation, PN-R556/R496/R426 monitors can be installed face up, face down, or tilted forward or backward at an angle of up to 90 degrees. Such flexibility helps you to incorporate these monitors into a wider-than-ever variety of settings.

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

Slim Body Suits Any Location

A slim design with a bezel of only 7.8 mm on all four sides helps onscreen images stand out and catch the viewer’s eye. Onscreen images beautifully fill the screen, reaching almost to the edges of the monitor. The subtle design of the monitors makes them a stylish fit for virtually any location.

PN-R556 / PN-R496 / PN-R426

Hanging Installation

The design of PN-R556/R496/R426 monitors is robust enough that they can be suspended from the four corners of the rear housing. Each monitor is bundled with mounting brackets that allow you to suspend it easily using wires.

Note: Please consult with your local authorised Sharp dealer or representative for installation advice.

Functional Remote Control

The PN-R556/R496/R426’s newly designed remote controller offers enhanced operability. For example, the remote controller and monitors can be assigned an identity number (from 0 to 9) for mutual recognition, which enables the remote to send commands to the targeted monitor only. The remote also lets you perform basic operations on connected HDMI-CEC compatible devices, including power on/off. And it has three designated function buttons—HDMI, DisplayPort, and Option—to simplify input switching.

Expandable Interface
PN-R556 / PN-R496 / PN-R426

To enhance their functionality in professional signage applications, PN-R556/R496/R426 monitors come standard-equipped with a range of interface terminals such as HDMI inputs and Display Port 1.2 input/output terminals. What’s more, these LCD monitors feature an Intel® Mini OPS-compatible expansion slot that supports the addition of an optional expansion board. You can add either an HDBaseT 2.0-compliant receiver board that supports various types of media and control signals or a wireless board that brings convenient functionality to office environments.

An optional board can slide into the slot on the back of the monitor.

Support for HDBaseT 2.0 (Option)

Installing an optional HDBaseT Receiver Board (PN-ZB03H) allows the monitor to receive HDMI video, audio signals, and control signals sent up to 100 metres via a single LAN cable*1. This brings convenient connectivity with HDMI devices such as PCs and BD players. Compatibility with the HDBaseT 2.0 standard allows you to remotely operate a PC from a USB device connected to the optional board*2. With HDBaseT 2.0 support, you can use fewer cables and reduce the time and cost of installation.

*1 Category 6 or higher shielded cable (available commercially)
*2 Requires an HDBaseT 2.0-compatible transmitter (available commercially). Not all USB devices are supported.

PN-R556 / PN-R496 / PN-R426

Wireless Connectivity (Option)

The optional Wireless Board (PN-ZB03W) allows up to 10 devices—including Mac or Windows® computers, smartphones, and tablets—to connect to the PN-R556/R496/R426 simultaneously without any cable hassles. You can display the content of one device on the whole screen, or you can display the content from up to four devices in a 2 x 2 split screen. This wireless collaboration is a great way to enhance productivity in the workplace.

Image Quality and Functions

DisplayPort Daisy Chain

Multiple PN-R556/R496/R426 monitors can be set up in a daisy chain configuration, so you can display the same content simultaneously on all screens. No matter which terminal receives the input signal, it can be output via DisplayPort.

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

Environmentally Friendly Design

These LCD monitors conform to the RoHS Directive restricting the use of hazardous substances.

Built-in Speakers

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

VESA-Compliant Mounts

VESA-compliant mounts provide right/left pivot and swivel, ensuring a high level of safety when LCD monitors are mounted on a wall or suspended from a ceiling.

Crestron Connected™

These monitors are compatible with Crestron Connected software, which means that you can remotely control and manage each monitor via a LAN network.


24/7 Operation

Built solid, PN-R556/R496/R426 monitors are ideal for use in demanding professional applications that require round-the-clock operation seven days a week.

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.

Fanless Architecture

Airflow is maintained and heat is dissipated without the use of noisy, dust-creating mechanical air-ventilation fans. The fanless design also facilitates maintenance of the monitor.

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
PN-R556 / PN-R496 / PN-R426

ID Setting

Thanks to an RS-232C interface, PN-R556/R496/R426 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.

* PN-R556/R496/R426 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.

Log Saving/Output

To boost the troubleshooting efficiency of service technicians, operating logs, signal changes, information on operating irregularities, and other such data can be saved and tracked.

Self Adjust Function

With an analogue PC connection, when a change occurs to the input signal timing, the clock phase will automatically adjust accordingly.
