Planar Expand Planar DirectLight LED Video Wall System Line with Industry’s Smallest Pixel Pitch

The companies demonstrate their groundbreaking 0.7 millimeter pixel pitch Planar DirectLight model, along with industry-leading LED solutions at Integrated Systems Europe 2018

Today, at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2018, Planar, global leaders in visualization products, announced they are expanding their awardwinning Planar® DirectLight® LED Video Wall System product line to include the smallest fine pitch LED video wall display in the industry—a breakthrough pixel pitch of just 0.7 millimeters. The expanded line, which also includes a new 2.5 millimeter pixel pitch option, will be showcased at ISE 2018, along with several industry-leading LED solutions.

The award-winning Planar DirectLight LED Video Wall System is a family of seamless, fine pitch LED video wall displays that allow for ultra-slim, wall-mounted, front service installations in indoor environments, delivering industry-leading resolution and clarity along with reliability features not before seen in the LED industry. Planar DirectLight incorporates the Planar® DriveSense™ technology delivering the highest pixel density with greater power efficiency.

The Planar DirectLight 0.7 millimeter display breaks new ground as the industry’s smallest pixel pitch LED video wall display, providing high resolution images at the closest viewing distance. The Planar DirectLight 0.7 allows for 4K and 8K resolution video walls in smaller spaces, matching the pixel density seen in traditional control room video walls but with a completely seamless and uniform image. And with the addition of a 2.5 millimeter model, customers now have a wide range of options from which to build high resolution LED video walls tailored to the resolution requirements of almost any indoor environment.

“As the market leader in the growing fine pitch LED video display industry, we continue to set the standard with groundbreaking advancements and industry-leading design,” said Steve Seminario, vice president of product management at Planar. “We’ve been working hard to tailor our displays to meet every customer need, and we’re pleased to showcase our trailblazing technology to the AV industry at ISE 2018.”
