Lights, Camera, Action!

Planar CarbonLight VX Series’ visual and mechanical properties are conducive to cinema and broadcasting as on-camera background scenes. The displays beautifully supplement green screens and integrate with XR stages.

Their wide color spectrum, narrow pixel pitches, fast frame and refresh rates deliver excellent in-person and in-frame visual performance. Average in-person viewers can feel comfortable viewing the video wall from as close as 10 ft. without seeing individual pixels, while those seeing it in media will feel enveloped in the scene as if they were on location.

Venue Versatility

Planar CarbonLight VX Series features thin, square (500x500mm) carbon fiber frames. Its light weight and Planar CarbonLight bracketry enable quick assembly and teardown for fast-paced applications. Individual cabinets can be removed and installed anywhere within the video wall or floor, without disrupting the overall layout, while front-side (top-side) installation and service make module extraction simple if maintenance is required. These attributes are particularly valuable for production studios that may need set change flexibility.
