Planar Systems has entered the direct-light LED video category with its Planar DirectLight LED Video Wall system.

The family of products, announced during Digital Signage Expo 2015, offers a choice of four resolutions ranging from 1.6 to 3.1 millimeter pitch and, according to Planar, provides “exceptional visual performance, thin mounting depth, precise alignment, mission-critical reliability and adaptability to different customer uses.”

Planar says the direct-light LED video walls are ideal for well-lit public spaces, corporate lobbies, light-controlled conference rooms, auditoriums and suitable for mission-critical command and control rooms.

From Planar’s DSE 2015 press release:

“We see tremendous growth potential with indoor LED video walls, and we are leading the way with Planar DirectLight,” said Planar Systems CEO and President Gerry Perkel. “This is the perfect complement to our very 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 meets that need, further extending our longstanding commitment to video wall innovation and leadership.”

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 an exceptional visual experience close up, from a distance and at wide viewing angles. With stunning, crystal-clear picture quality, flexibility to accommodate almost any indoor environment and the ability to withstand the most rigorous, 24x7 operations, this unique 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 & 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. Experienced high resolution video wall vendors such as Planar are well placed to leverage their technological skills, deep market understanding and specialist channel partner networks to capitalize on this growing new market.”
