Leyard and Planar launches VS Series LED displays

Leyard and Planar has launched a new series of rental and staging LED video wall displays.

The new range, which will be on display at Live Design International next week, is said to be built for easy assembly and transport as well as adaptability to diverse environments and serviceability.

Available in 2.5m, 3.9mm and 4.8mm pixel pitches, the VS Series is aimed at rental and staging professionals who assemble video walls for events, concerts and mobile studio backdrops.

According to the company, the LED displays have been built from the ground up to address the real-world requirements and feedback from customers who desire a lightweight, simple design that is quick to assemble, teardown and transport – but also rugged enough to withstand wear and tear.

“The Leyard VS Series balances the needs and desires of rental industry professionals with the innovative ideas of Leyard and Planar’s research and development team,” said Chris Prosio, general manager of Rental & Staging at Leyard and Planar. “We believe this purpose-driven design will save time, while adding impact and excitement to almost any event.”

The VS Series weighs less than 62lbs (28kg) and supports single-person installations with magnetic points that hold the LED cabinet in place as it is being installed, along with integrated ratcheting cabinet locks to secure cabinets together. It also comes with integrated corner protection and an anti-collision bottom edge to prevent damage as cabinets are moved around.

The Leyard VS Series will begin shipping in the first quarter of 2020.
