Why Planar in Healthcare?

From donor recognition in the lobby to surgical schedules posted at nurse’s stations. From wayfinding in the cafeteria to self-service patient check-in, the applications for digital display technology in hospitals and medical offices abound.

From reliable displays that can handle the rigors of public access to specialty displays that can calm frazzled nerves and provide critical information, the healthcare industry looks to Planar for display innovation and design.

Planar’s offering is broad and features some common characteristics that set these products apart for the most demanding healthcare environments.

Reliable for Public Installations

From high brightness displays to sturdy metal-frame industrial design, from redundant power supplies to proprietary Planar® ERO-LCD™ (Extended Ruggedness and Optics™) technology for LCD displays and Planar® ERO-LED™ (Extended Ruggedness and Optics™) technology for LED displays, Planar products are designed for public venues and can withstand the demands of a busy hospital or clinic, day in and day out.

Designed for Designers

Planar video wall and digital signage products are designed to blend seamlessly into professional environments. The unique white bezel designs keep the displays working in concert with the clean medical aesthetic. Planar digital signage products feature a thin-mounting profile, which complies with ADA standards without additional structures or costly insets.

Configuration for Ultimate Control

From the free-form arrangement of Planar® Mosaic® Architectural Video Walls to the virtually-unlimited scaling that enables Clarity® Matrix® G3 LCD Video Walls of any size, Planar configurations provide installation and design flexibility.

Exceptional Value

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

Trustworthy Partner
