Planar Introduces Two New Simplicity Series Digital Signage Displays

The new 46” and 55” displays round out the Planar Simplicity Series, offering a full range of sizes for digital signage applications

Today Planar announced the addition of two new sizes to its Planar® Simplicity™ Series line of edge-lit LED displays, offering customers a broad range of choices for deploying simple, sleek and affordable digital signage displays. With the addition of the 46” and 55” models, customers now have four sizes from which to choose, making the Planar Simplicity Series a highly versatile solution for a wide variety of commercial applications including retail stores, restaurants, corporate meeting rooms, fitness centers and museums. Ranging in size from 32" - 55", the Planar Simplicity Series line of LCD displays for digital signage incorporates media playing, a sleek design and commercial functionality into an affordable digital signage solution.

“Planar Simplicity Series displays are a sleek, commercial-quality digital signage display solution that’s both economical and easy to deploy, making it the perfect canvas for commercial content,” said Becky Connors, product marketing manager at Planar Systems. “And with the availability of the 46” and 55” sizes, we’ve now expanded the series, offering our customers a broad range of choices for their digital signage needs.”

The Planar Simplicity Series redefines simple signage, both in terms of functionality and design. With built-in media playing, the cost and complexity of installing third-party media players is eliminated. Planar Simplicity Series displays are easy to install and allow users to create and display content using tools they already have—including videos, photography from cell phone cameras, stock photos and music libraries.

From a single-display installation to a multi-display network, the Planar Simplicity Series was designed to bring simplicity to nearly every digital signage project. The displays are highly versatile, supporting playback of a wide variety of media formats. They also come with a full array of inputs and can be controlled remotely through LAN or RS-232.

In terms of design, the displays feature an elegant, slim profile—less than 1.7” deep— blending naturally into any environment and achieving compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for protruding objects in public spaces. In addition, the bezels contain no distracting logos, keeping the focus on the content itself. Moreover, the displays use LED backlight technology allowing the displays to operate at industry-low levels of power consumption, making them highly energy efficient.

Planar Simplicity Series displays are available through Planar’s network of authorized resellers. Visit Planar’s YouTube channel to watch a video about the Planar Simplicity Series or visit for more information.
