Planar DirectLight displays are rated for 24/7 indoor use

PORTLAND, Ore. — Planar Systems, a manufacturer of display and digital signage technology, announced the Planar DirectLight LED video wall system, which combines a proprietary design across a choice of four resolutions ranging from 1.6 to 3.1 millimeter pitch. The result is strong visual performance, thin mounting depth, precise alignment, mission-critical reliability and adaptability to different customer uses.

The Planar DirectLight LED video wall family can be optimized for a range of indoor environments including well-lit public spaces and corporate lobbies, as well as light-controlled conference rooms, auditoriums and control rooms. Moreover, DirectLight LED video walls are suitable for demanding 24x7 indoor applications — with an architecture designed to make installation and service faster and more precise.

“We see tremendous growth potential with indoor LED video walls,” said Planar Systems CEO and President Gerry Perkel. “This is the perfect complement to our successful Clarity Matrix LCD video wall system for customers who have been asking for a seamless, high-quality video wall that can meet mission-critical requirements for indoor environments.”

Planar DirectLight offers a modular, seamless LED video wall system in four narrow pixel pitches — 1.6, 1.9, 2.5 and 3.1 millimeters — providing clear visuals from close up, from a distance and at wide viewing angles. With the flexibility to accommodate almost any indoor environment and the ability to withstand the most rigorous, 24x7 operations, this family of video walls represents the next wave in the fast-growing direct-view LED market.

“Narrow pixel pitch LED solutions (3mm pitch and below) are evolving rapidly to become a serious option for indoor video wall applications that require higher resolution and greater image quality,” said Chris Mcintyre-Brown, associate director of displays and broadcast equipment for Futuresource Consulting. “While the market for high-resolution LED is still in its infancy, the segment experienced more than 100 percent volume growth in 2014 over the prior year. And with growing adoption in vertical markets such as control room, conference room and retail, we expect that trend to continue.”
