MicroLED Diagram

MicroLED = Big Power

Most Planar DirectLight Ultra Series models feature MicroLEDs that are less than half the size of the smallest standard LEDs but deliver up to three times more brightness, excellent visual performance and color uniformity. They are also more energy efficient, requiring less power and producing less heat at a given brightness. They offer more vivid colors and leave more room for a black canvas, providing greater detail with dark images and better overall contrast. The MicroLED design has a smaller footprint and reduces light blockage and ambient-light reflection. Their small size facilitates the highest resolution possible for LED, even in smaller video walls.

Ultra Performance

Planar DirectLight Ultra Series visually supports the most demanding use models for control rooms, boardroom presentations, or media-heavy applications. It delivers the best color reproduction and uniformity, highest brightness, greatest performance with dark content, highest resolutions and is also ready for High Dynamic Range (HDR) content.

The displays offer mission-critical design for 24x7 reliability and are designed to maximize technological advancements for mounting, alignment, space constraints, reliability, fast service, power efficiency, scalability and long life.

Always Aligned

The convenient, full front service Planar DirectLight Ultra Series features a pixel-perfect display even at 0.6mm pixel pitch. To maintain visual performance over time, it has Planar ActivAlign, proprietary self-adjusting alignment technology that combats issues such as vibration and thermal expansion that can cause LED modules to shift and disrupt the seamless visual experience. Planar DirectLight Ultra Series maintains module positioning through these events, reducing the need for repeated maintenance.

Efficient & Reliable Remote Power

The included Planar® Remote Power Supply (RPS) is takes heat, depth, noise, weight, service points and electrical outlets away from the video wall and into a rack room. Featuring n+1 redundant, hot swap power modules, the Planar RPS is available with 110V and 220V power and features a low power standby mode when not operating 24x7.

Planar DirectLight Ultra Series is more energy efficient, at the same brightness, than other LED displays through Planar’s proprietary DriverIC. It helps extend the life of the display with lower heat emission, climate control requirements and power consumption.

Advanced Video Wall Processing

Planar DirectLight Ultra Series features includes the Planar WallDirector VC, a compact and scalable video processor, and web-based video wall management software. The application simplifies video wall set-up, configuration, operation and monitoring. Planar WallDirector VC is a 1U rack mount device that captures multiple 4K inputs and drives the video wall at native resolution while providing signal extension over CAT or fiber connections. It also scales modularly to support larger video walls. Multiple video controllers can be stacked, but act as one, for more video inputs.
