Top 6 Benefits of a Tiled Video Wall of Planar UltraRes 4k Displays

Planar built a 3-wide tiled array of our new Planar® UltraRes 4k display at InfoComm 2013, which stopped traffic and turned heads.

Here are the six things that made it unforgettable:

1. Combining the pixels of 3 separate 4k displays delivered a whopping 12-times full HD resolution canvas. That is over 25 million pixels on a single wall.

2. The Planar UltraRes features an optional and proprietary mounting system called Planar® Profile which results in a very narrow mounting depth and our unique tiling kit creates the smallest image-to-image gap between displays of this resolution.

3. The wall is extremely large. Each panel in the array measures 84” diagonal. Not to mention the fact that this wall had a faceted arrangement to create a more immersive experience. 

4. The UltraRes wall also showed the power of the inputs and built-in processing of these displays. Each product in this family features four HDMI and four DisplayPort, each capable of taking in 4k or 1080p signals. For the trade show, this single wall was powered by 9 discrete sources and using nothing more than a PC, we could switch between a single 12k image, a 4k video, and 4 1080p images all sharing a single screen with ease, without an external processor.

5. The ability to switch between 2D and 3D content was made possible because the wall at InfoComm was made up of 3D enabled UltraRes displays (the Planar UltraRes UR8450-3D)

6. Even up close, you can’t see pixels on these displays when they are showing native resolution content. At a normal viewing distance they meet the criteria for what others call a “Retina” display [link to other blog post about this, if it is published]. This Ultra HD resolution is important not only as the size of the displays increase, but as touch interactivity brings viewers closer to the display. The Planar UltraRes is also available in a touch version.
