One look, six screen sizes for Planar PS-Series20 January 2012
The highlight of the Planar ISE booth promises to be the company’s recently announced series of large format LCD displays designed for commercial and digital signage environments such as retail, quick service restaurants, hospitality, healthcare, corporate meeting rooms and lobbies.
Planar’s new PS-Series includes six models ranging from 42in to 65in, with prices said to be among the lowest in the industry. The range also includes models with LED backlighting and dual touch technology, proving, says Planar, that ultra-slim and interactive LCD displays can be cost-effective.
The PS-Series feature full-metal casing and panels optimised for all-day operation. Also in place are multiple connectivity options, video wall support, RS-232 control, and ambient backlight control.
“As a leader in display technology, digital signage integrators and end-users expect an affordable, commercial-grade digital signage display from Planar and the PS-Series delivers,” said Becky Connors, product marketing manager at Planar Systems. “Many of the current entry level digital signage displays on the market are re-engineered televisions that lack the features required for long-life performance. The Planar PS-Series is the only family of displays in this price range built commercial-grade and backed by an industry-leading warranty.”
The Planar CustomerFirst warranty covers all shipping expenses, including expedited delivery of the replacement unit shipped in advance.
Built on the understanding that digital signage applications often require a range of displays with a common design, the Planar PS-Series delivers a unified appearance across a range of models with varying sizes, backlights and interactive touch screen. www.planar.com
