From donor recognition in the development office to student athlete profiles in the athletic center, from menus in the cafeteria to wayfinding in the student union, the applications for digital display technology in higher education have never been more exciting. From reliable displays that can handle the rigors of public access to specialty displays for labs and classrooms, colleges and universities turn to Planar for their digital display requirements.
Why Planar in Higher Education?
Planar’s offering is broad and features some common characteristics that set these displays apart in the most demanding educational environments.
Create the Biggest Impression
From the free-form arrangement of Planar® Mosaic™ architectural video walls to the virtually-unlimited scaling that enables Clarity™ Matrix LCD Video Walls of any size, Planar configurations provide installation and design flexibility. Digital displays around campus can be updated at the push of a button with emergency campus alerts, late-breaking game scores, or event information. Students, faculty and visitors receive the information and inspiration they need, in a format that is compelling and demonstrates technology leadership.
Reliable for Public Installations
From high brightness displays to sturdy metal-frame industrial design, from redundant power supplies to Planar’s proprietary ERO™ (Extended Ruggedness and Optics) technology, Planar products are designed for public venues like athletic facilities and stadiums to libraries and dorm lobbies. Desktop and touch monitors, outfitting computer labs across the country, come with the industry’s best warranty.
Designed for Designers
Planar video wall and digital signage displays are designed to blend seamlessly into modern environments with beautiful industrial designs and color match options. Planar digital signage displays feature a thin-mounting profile, compliant with ADA standards and eliminating the need for additional structures or costly insets.
Planar’s display solutions are engineered to make design, installation and maintenance less expensive while delivering a lower total cost of ownership optimized for public environments, with features like front serviceability, exceptional warranties and innovative mounting options.
