AMSTERDAM, 11 February, 2020 – Today, Planar, global leaders in visualization products, announced the company will showcase its most extensive portfolio of display technology this week at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2020 in Amsterdam. The company will reinforce continued leadership in the video wall market with a wide array of visualization solutions designed to support best-in-class visual performance. Visitors to ISE 2020 can view these and other innovations at Stand #12-H100.
Planar will present an ultra-fine pitch LED technology demonstration of a 0.6 millimeter video wall featuring micro LED. Measuring 216-inches and delivering compelling 8K resolution, the technology demonstration shows the outstanding visual performance of micro LED technology, representing the company’s largest and finest pixel pitch LED video wall display supporting 8K to-date and a new standard for the video wall market.
"We're excited to be showing such a wide range of compelling displays, including a preview of our 0.6 millimeter micro LED 8K resolution video wall,” said Steve Seminario, vice president of product development at Planar. “The combination of micro LED and 4-in-1 pixel packaging technology offers a combination of pixel density, visual performance and ruggedness unattainable with conventional LED display designs."
Standard-Setting Fine Pitch LED Solutions
In addition to the 0.6 millimeter technology demonstration, Planar will present other award-winning fine pitch LED innovations designed for superior image performance and reliability, including the next-generation DirectLight® X LED Video Wall System and the TVF Series LED video wall line
DirectLight X adds unrivaled video processing and management capabilities to Planar’s ultra-fine pitch LED video wall line. With the latest 4K video standards, signal extension, multi-source processing and modern web-based graphical control software, DirectLight X creates a complete system that reduces dependence on external processing systems and makes the video wall easier to operate and monitor.
ISE attendees will also experience the clear, crisp imagery TVF Series offers at nearly every angle and viewing distance. With models available in 1.2, 1.5, 1.8 and 2.5 millimeter pixel pitches, TVF Series offers a 27-inch, slim-profile display cabinet, front serviceability and a creative, stackable design to eliminate cabinet-to-cabinet cabling and reduce complexity of installation and vertical alignment.
In addition, Planar will demonstrate ERO-LED™ (Extended Ruggedness and Optics™) on the TVF Series. Protecting fine pitch LED displays from dust, electro-static discharge, humidity, casual human contact and impact at both the front and edges, ERO-LED enhances visual performance by significantly increasing contrast in ambient light.
Custom LED Innovations for Unparalleled Experiences
Also on display in the Planar stand will be CarbonLight™ CLI Flex™. Bending into curves as tight as 25-inch or 637 millimeters, this line of pliable LED video wall displays combine to create immersive concave or convex curved video walls. Surpassing the boundaries of LED technology, these LED modules literally bend, and are ideal for indoor, fixed video wall installations requiring smooth curves, waves or column wraps. CarbonLight CLI Flex enables smooth curves that do not cause color shift, offering a more visually appealing alternative to faceting flat LED cabinets into segmented curves. The LED modules can also be combined with standard CarbonLight™ CLI Series cabinets to form unique video walls with both flat and curved surfaces This solution is offered in 1.5, 1.9, 2.6 and 3.9 millimeter pixel pitches.
Rental and Staging Solutions for Fast Serviceability and Adaptability
Planar will also exhibit the VS Series LED video wall displays, the latest addition to the company’s portfolio of display solutions designed for the rental and staging industry. The VS Series is a full-featured series of LED video wall displays built for easy assembly and transport, adaptability to diverse environments and fast serviceability. Offered in 2.5, 3.9 and 4.8 millimeter pixel pitches, VS Series is aimed at rental and staging professionals who assemble video walls for events, concerts and mobile studio backdrops. The LED displays have been built from the ground up to address the real-world requirements and feedback from customers who desire a lightweight, simple design that is quick to assemble, teardown and transport—but also rugged enough to withstand wear and tear.
Planar will also exhibit the four-time, award-winning CarbonLight™ LED Displays, a family of lightweight, adaptable LED displays ideal for a variety of uses from outdoor standard pitch to mesh to LED flooring.
