Planar® ERO-LED™ (Extended Ruggedness and Optics™) and Planar® ERO-LED Matte™ technology is a proprietary protective coating applied exclusively to best-in-class Planar® LED display products to deliver protection and durability in high-traffic environments at a reasonable cost.
The Planar ERO-LED material is applied at the LED module (printed circuit board) level. Experienced LED technicians apply the coating to ensure outstanding quality and consistency. Applying the protective surface at the module level allows for individual module removal and replacement, rather than removing an entire LED cabinet within a video wall.
Adding Planar ERO-LED or Planar ERO-LED Matte to LED video walls provides ruggedness and protection from casual contact, front impact, edge impact, liquids, dust, electrostatic discharge (ESD) and humidity. The protective coating allows users to deploy seamless LED video walls in more environments than ever before as well as applications that encourage touch interaction.
Visual properties on an LED video wall are enhanced when using protective Planar ERO-LED technology. At varying levels of ambient light, Planar ERO-LED delivers three times the contrast ratio compared to untreated LED video walls. Planar ERO-LED also delivers smoother off-axis brightness drop and improved off-axis color uniformity.
Visually, a video wall with Planar ERO-LED Matte is virtually indistinguishable from untreated LED video walls. It delivers a non-reflective finish because the protective coating sits below the LED surface. Planar ERO-LED Matte offers improved protection compared to a standard LED video wall and is ideally suited for environments with windows and other light that may cause reflection.
Planar ERO-LED unlocks new applications for LED displays by enhancing the visual performance of an LED video wall. New applications include:
