Why Planar in Museums?

Read our Museum Exhibit Design Trends eBookModern museums, galleries, and experience centers are greeting guests with new video display technology and Planar is on the forefront of digital storytelling in these spaces. Specifically designed for the challenges of public venue installations, Planar digital signage solutions deliver breath-taking imagery and interactivity that can attract, engage, inform, and inspire visitors like never before while creating lasting impressions for institutions and brands.

Planar’s digital signage product offering is broad and features some common characteristics that set these products apart.

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 for tiled LCD video walls, Planar products are designed for public venues and can withstand the demands of these environments. Planar’s leading touch screen solutions provide staff with the ultimate in interactive engagement and reliability.

Designed for Designers

Planar video wall and digital signage products are designed to create unique backdrops or eye-catching focal points in exhibit design. The free-form arrangement of Planar® Mosaic® Architectural Video Walls and seamless video walls of any size are all examples of this innovation at work. Planar digital signage products feature a thin-mounting profile, which complies with ADA standards without additional structures or costly insets.

From small format displays for your staff to use for guest check-in to larger-than-life multitouch video walls, Planar’s touch solutions create interactive experiences that can tell memorable stories and immerse guests in a world of information and inspiration.

Exceptional Value for the Integrator and Client

Planar’s solutions are engineered to make design, installation and maintenance less expensive and have a lower total cost of ownership optimized for these public environments, with features like front serviceability and LED backlight designs.
