Planar Clarity Matrix Shown in KGW News Segment on Elemental Technologies

KGW News Channel 8 did a segment on how NBC and BBC have sought out a local Portland, Oregon company for live Olympic Games coverage. Elemental Technologies is a small start up that specializes in finding ways to better stream live video. Their software will bring the Olympic Games to local audiences no matter where they are and no matter which device they are using. Elemental Technologies located in downtown Portland, is home to a Planar® Clarity™ Matrix LCD video wall system. This helps them view and show off more clearly what they are working on with outstanding visual performance and uninterrupted 24/7 operation.

Planar Silhouette: On Everyone’s Wish List

  This holiday season, the Planar Silhouette™ is on everyone’s wish list! We got into the spirit and put a bow on the Silhouette in our lobby. You can see how impressively the Silhouette displays show a variety of still image content, in this case being driven from a small media player tucked into the base of the Silhouette. The product towers over 10 feet and is designed to elicit an emotional response, while making video and images more attention-grabbing and artistic.

The latest in 3D: the Clarity Matrix 3D goes live!

It's what the 3D Roundabout caught already at the prototype stage earlier this year, but now it is launched and being installed as well! First installation can be seen the University of Illinois Chicago's Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) in a class room setting. The Cyber-Commons 3D is a class room facility featuring six wide by three high Clarity Matrix 3D video wall, made from our 46" Clarity Matrix displays, which allows 2D and 3D visualization and collaboration. You can read more about the installation from EVL's own website. The new Clarity Matrix 3D will be at show this week at the SuperComputing 2011 at Louisiana State University, More…

Repost: Technology and Artistry Mashup for Planar and ADi

  Planar, maker of many kinds of cool display technologies, approached ADi with a unique proposition. Conceive and design an animation for a video display. The display is pretty much one of a kind – ten feet tall, made of 4 display panels with almost no bezel. They are mounted on a tree-like frame that sprouts up out of a base that cleverly disguises the media player and inner workings of the “Art Wall”. We are going to follow the progress of this project and show you step by step how it comes together.Today, we speak with Seth Cameron Short, ADi Creative Lead about his approach to designing for this unique platform as well as Jennifer Davis, VP of More…

World’s First

From Planar Systems comes another entry for the “Famous Firsts” list at TheLongestListOfTheLongestStuffAtTheLongestDomainNameAtLongLast.com: the first integrated multi-panel touch screen display. While that may not roll right off the tongue, it’s a tremendous breakthrough. Prior to the launch of the Clarity Matrix Touch on June 15th at InfoComm 2011 in Orlando, Florida, multi-panel touch screens had to be cobbled together from different vendors with various components. It was a situation that would challenge the inestimable Dr. Frankenstein’s skills of stitching parts together.You can now order a 2-by-2, 2-by-3 or 3-by-3 video wall made up of Clarity More…

Design Thinking and the Clarity Matrix

By Jennifer B. DavisI have been reading a great book by Tim Brown, a founder and thought leader at the famed industrial design firm, IDEO, called “Change by Design: How Design Thinking Transforms Organizations and Inspires Innovation.” In the book he emphasizes that traditional fields of design (i.e., art, architecture, etc…) approach problems differently than other disciplines and having a more design-centric view can lead to more revolutionary outcomes. Hospital emergency room redesign, an example he uses in the book, is not just about the efficiency of filling out forms or the staff-to-patient ratio, but about the materials in the waiting room and More…

Brain Rules

Scientists have been busy unlocking the secrets of the human brain: how it works, how it fails and what all that means. The field of neuroscience is making new discoveries daily, but who’s to explain the science to the rest of us? John Medina (Dr. Medina, that is) is a neuroscientist at the University of Washington. He’s not only a researcher but also an educator training up young scientists-to-be. But what you really need to know about him is that he’s been able to translate the obtuse language of the academy into a few simple statements. The research on the human brain can be summed up and applied to daily life and Medina writes about it in his More…

Hang out a Shingle

By James WoodIt used to be that you could just paint your name and business information on a shingle and hang it out in front of your shop or office. The simple market method was enough to drive business so that the phrase became an idiom for starting a new venture. Especially in the American West, doctors and lawyers could show up in a new town and immediately have business.As technology advanced the signs got a bit more complex with colors and designs. Logos and brand recognition became important marketing features. But most marketing was done through tools like the phone book, that’s why there are so many “AAA Locksmiths” around the country. The More…
