Large Deployment of Planar Displays Supports University's Goals for a Unique and Effective Learning Environment
Clemson is ranked among the top 20 universities in the country in large part for its commitment to delivering 21st century education. Many factors reflect this commitment including the design and technological advances of the new Watt Family Innovation Center. This center provides students, faculty and staff with technology – including advanced displays from Planar – that allow for an almost unprecedented level of collaboration, interactive information engagement, cross-discipline learning as well as idea and materials sharing.
With the support of the Watt family, backing from industry leaders and extensive involvement of audio visual partner, BrightTree Studios (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania), the Watt Family Innovation Center was designed around and operates on a complement of nearly 200 Planar displays, including the Clarity® Matrix™ MultiTouch LCD Video Wall, the Clarity® Matrix 3D LCD Video Wall, Planar® UltraRes™ Series 4K LCD displays and Planar® PS Series HD LCD displays.
Many of these displays are interactive, equipped with Planar’s multi-touch technology and deliver a high level of flexibility thanks to features such as the Clarity® Visual Control Station™ (VCS™). Further, the Planar® ERO™ (Extended Ruggedness and Optics™) technology, an optically bonded glass, provides the touch-enabled capability and protects a display’s surface.
