When Image Experience Matters

Several years ago, Planar adopted the tagline “When Image Experience Matters”, each word selected because it is packed with meaning for our customers. When: Not all display needs are equal.

The video performance. The vivid colors. The resolution. The brightness.

This sophisticated, connected shopper is turning retail on its ear - and creating new opportunities for innovative product merchandising.

Commercial-Grade Digital Signage Displays Capture the Attention of Customers in Retail Environments Better Than Your Typical Big Box Televisions

Digital displays are a modern way to capture the attention of customers and bring added visual entertainment to the environment, which has led to an increasing adoption rate of digital signage in retail stores. Taking a closer look at commercial-grade displays versus TVs from your local warehouse, there are numerous benefits to the use of commercial-grade displays in a retail setting.

The Art and Soul of Digital Signage

At Planar, we are interested in different ways of utilizing Digital Signage to engage, inform and even dazzle the public. Recently we've come across an example from the UK on Remembrance Sunday for broadcasting the day's service to large audience and PRN in the US using their channel throughout national retail store locations to keep the fans of football up-to-date with NFL Networks football highlights when shopping. And pictured here, the beautiful lobby of Hotel de Luxe in Portland, Oregon, where signage meets art and films! An installation where Planar proudly provides the hardware to create this unique environment. Digital signage truly is More…

DOOH! is where the Growth is.

DOOH  sounded first like the grunt frequently uttered by Homer Simpson. In case you haven't come across it in other contexts than that of a cartoon so far, it actually spells out Digital Out Of Home, a well loved (?) abbreviation for the Digital Signage professionals. BBC's Shafir Sakr (30.5.2011) reports on outdoor advertising noting that industry experts are forecasting faster growth for digital signage than for any other media. JCDecaux is the current leader in the market place. In the video report JCDecaux's Jeremy Male notes that with digital signage "you can't turn the page or switch off, it is just there".Digital signage allows moving from More…
