Why Planar in Oil and Gas?

Upstream and downstream in the production process, petroleum companies are increasingly looking to leverage their investments with better data analysis. Processing and visualization of seismic data, extraction modeling and operational monitoring all play a key role in improving decision-making and collaboration, protecting the environment and optimizing production.  

Crisp and bright visualization tools with high-reliability keep this industry coming back to Planar for digital oil field installations.  For energy distribution, Planar’s solutions improve the bottom line and customer experience.

Planar's product offering is broad and features characteristics that set these products apart.

Visual Perfection

Planar delivers a wide range of visual solutions for oil and gas companies, from video walls to flat panel LCD displays and LED video wall options.  For petroleum companies and others in the energy distribution space, Planar offers seamless LED video walls. For immersive and useful 3D visualization, video wall options are available.

Configurations for Every Space and Place

From thin-mounting and the modular Clarity® Matrix® LCD Video Wall System to our truly seamless LED offerings, Planar's display solutions can accommodate a wide range of applications from small meeting rooms to large control centers.

Reliable for Mission Critical Use

From sturdy metal-frame industrial design in our custom display products to 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 environments where downtime is not an option.

Better and Faster Decision-Making

Interpreting seismic data and monitoring operations requires ready access to data and the experience to interpret it into action.  Data analysis and visualization, reservoir and drilling modeling, and cross-site collaboration – all key to the emerging digital oilfield trend – are enabled with Planar’s visualization displays.

Exceptional Value for Integrators and End Customers

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

Application Need Planar Product
3D visualization Clarity Matrix is available with optional 3D functionality, creating truly immersive experiences and allowing data to be visualized for new insights and approaches.
Large-scale visualization From tiled video wall systems, including Planar® DirectLight® X LED Video Wall System and Clarity Matrix G3 LCD Video Wall System, Planar has a line-up for visualization on a large scale. For multi-user, collaboration experiences, a very large display with high resolution capabilities (like Planar’s 4K offerings), makes for quicker and better decision-making.  
Mission-critical real-time oilfield operations Planar products are designed for reliability with commercial features that ensure a long-life and uptime. Not only easy to install, Planar displays are also easy to service and maintain. For instance, the display in the center of a large Clarity Matrix video wall can be replaced without removing the entire video wall, saving days of service downtime.
Interactivity to enable collaboration A growing number of software packages used by geoscientists for viewing, interpreting and modeling seismic data can support touch control on the display. Planar’s extensive line-up of interactive displays turn visualization spaces into truly collaborative decision rooms.
