New Fine Pixel Pitch LED Video Wall for On-Camera

At IBC 2019, Planar will showcase a new 1.2 millimeter fine pixel pitch model to the company’s Planar® TVF Series LED video wall line.

The Planar TVF Series is a family of fine pitch LED video wall displays that delivers superior on-camera performance with a wide range of refresh rates to ensure that it can be used with a variety of on-camera recording needs. It offers a 27-inch, slim-profile display cabinet, front serviceability and a creative, stackable design. The Planar TVF 1.2 joins other models available in 1.5, 1.8 and 2.5 millimeter pixel pitches.

Planar will also demonstrate the high contrast ratio and color accuracy of high dynamic range (HDR) content, taking advantage of the unique performance characteristics of Planar LED video wall displays. An important emerging technology, HDR promises more lifelike images with a broader range of color and contrast to create a next-generation visual experience.
