Planar adds ultra-narrow bezel Clarity Matrix LCD videowall displays22 October 2014
Planar Systems has added two new ultra-narrow bezel LCD models to its line of Clarity Matrix LCD system with G2 Architecture, making it “the most comprehensive line of video wall displays in the market”, it says.
The two new Clarity Matrix options are a 46in model with 800 nits brightness and a 55in model with 500 nits brightness. The new models feature a tiled bezel width of just 3.7mm between adjacent LCD displays for a near-seamless image.
In addition to the new offerings, Planar has also extended video and power transmission capabilities on its entire family of Clarity Matrix LCD Video Wall models to support distances of 150m. With the electronics and power supply off-board, the weight, depth, heat and potential points of failure can be placed in a convenient location for easy maintenance. Built-in video extension capabilities have been expanded so electronics can be co-located with the source up to 150m away from the videowall. A single remote power supply module can power up to six displays.
“Customer reaction to Clarity Matrix with G2 Architecture has been incredibly positive,” said Jennifer Davis, vice president of marketing at Planar Systems. “The addition of new Clarity Matrix models with smaller tiled bezel width gives Planar the broadest product offering in the LCD videowall category and opens up new applications for our high-performance technology.”
Clarity Matrix with G2 Architecture videowall displays are built for 24/7 reliability in the most mission-critical control room environments, as well as digital signage. The expanded line-up offers greater flexibility to meet a wide variety of installation challenges.
Together, the technological advances and award-winning design of Clarity Matrix gives customers a comprehensive, cutting-edge videowall system designed to reduce total cost of ownership.
The new Clarity Matrix MX46HDU and LX55HDU models are available through Planar’s global network of authorised resellers and will begin shipping this quarter.
