Leyard and Planar debuts all in one 4K signage system17 January 2017
The Planar QE Series of Ultra HD LCD displays, claimed to be the industry’s first all-in-one 4K solution for high-impact digital signage, has been unveiled.
Available in 75in, 86in and 98in sizes, the Planar QE Series come with an embedded Planar ContentSmart 4K Media Player, providing a way to design, distribute and play back ultra-high resolution digital signage on a single display or multiple displays within a network. In addition, the embedded media player includes two USB ports and an internal time clock for scheduling playlists.
All Planar QE Series displays offer cutting-edge 4K video performance, with support for native 4K at up to 60Hz, with HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 to enable smooth motion video. The displays allow for four sources to be simultaneously viewed in quadrants on the display, suitable for collaboration or huddle environments in conference rooms as well as digital signage applications. The displays can be oriented in either landscape or portrait and come with a logo-free, all-metal bezel design for enhanced durability.
Audio is built into each display with two internal 10W speakers. The displays are compatible with a multitude of Ultra HD inputs, including emerging 4K sources requiring compliance with the High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) standard.
Multi-touch models are also available, for professionals who seek to collaborate or interact using large format, high resolution displays.
Steve Seminario, VP, product marketing, Planar and Leyard, said: “The Planar QE Series was designed to further break down barriers to 4K adoption in digital signage and collaboration by providing an affordable and simple professional solution.”
