“The Clarity® Matrix™ and Planar® PS-Series are the only technologies we’d want to specify for the casino environment,” says Ryan Sullivan, founder of Blue Speed Audio Video. “They both were designed to run 24/7, and they install without the need for extra structure. As a result, we can get the casino up and running more quickly and at lower cost than we could with other brands, and we know these displays will perform flawlessly over a long period of time.” To find out more about this installation, check out the Indigo Sky Casino case study and see other implementation of large format screens and video walls at at http://casestudies.planar.com.
