The panel uses a sealed design to protect against dust, grease, and steam and has an integrated expansion slot for connectivity. The screen has an internal clock and scheduler to turn the display off on a schedule to save power. A version of the screen will also be offered with an integrated tuner called the P701-AVT in March.
