Planar Introduces Planar HB Series Huddle Board with Precision Touch
The new line of LCD displays is optimized for quick and efficient collaboration, including highly responsive touch and fine tip stylus performance
PORTLAND, Ore., September 22, 2020 – Planar, a global leader in visualization technology, is now offering the Planar® HB Series Huddle Board, a line of large format LCD displays optimized for quick and efficient collaboration. Planar HB Series Huddle Board features a highly responsive touch performance to recognize up to 20 simultaneous touch points from multiple users and an included stylus to accurately capture even the smallest of characters. With embedded tools tailored to in-room and remote unified communication, Planar HB Series is ideal for conference rooms, study group spaces, design centers and executive home offices in today's timely work from home climate.
The Planar HB Series is available in 75-inch and 86-inch sizes featuring 4K resolution and 350-nit brightness, ensuring that everyone in the room can clearly see even the most detailed on-screen content. The series is also compatible with industry-leading collaboration solutions, supports third-party devices and includes an integrated Android® operating system complete with whiteboard software to create a one-stop collaboration solution for users.
"Increasingly, customers are looking for ease, efficiency and performance around the primary meeting room display applications, including annotation, screen sharing and video communication," said Steve Seminario, vice president of product development at Planar. "The Planar HB Series was designed to squarely meet these needs with leading software compatibility, built-in tools and highly responsive touch."
The Planar HB Series offers wireless connectivity to support both in-room and remote collaboration and the display's 20-point projected capacitive touch helps ensure effective interactive experiences for users. Planar HB Series' sensor is directly integrated into the LCD panel, reducing weight and thickness compared to traditional glass overlay construction. Planar is one of the first companies in the industry to achieve this construction for a 75-inch LCD display.
With Planar HB Series, files can be easily imported to allow users to quickly annotate over maps, web page screen shots, reports and more. For added flexibility, all Planar HB Series displays come standard with expansion slots that support Intel's Open Pluggable Specification (OPS), making them compatible with a variety of OPS devices. Also, the series' compatibility with unified communication platforms allows users to add a webcam, audio system and microphone of their choosing to sync with colleagues across the globe as if they are in the very same room.
"It's imperative that T1V's ThinkHub collaboration software runs on high-performance display technology that optimizes the meeting experience," says Adam Loritsch, executive vice president of sales and marketing at T1V. "The Planar HB Series prioritizes pinpoint accuracy and precision to ensure a seamless experience for blended teams as they connect in hybrid meeting spaces that combine in-room and remote participants. It's the perfect pairing for ThinkHub and our mission to bring teams together."
