Planar Systems’ new line of 84-inch UltraRes 4K commercial display product line, however, should manage to garner plenty of eyeballs.
Designed for ultra-high-resolution commercial applications, according to Planar, the three new 4K displays offer 3,840 x 2,160 resolution.
Many North American commercial integrators are getting their first glimpse at the 4K line during DSE 2013, while residential integrators saw it in sister company Runco’s booth at CEDIA Expo 2012 and made a dramatic European debut at Integrated Systems Europe 2013.
“In commercial, academic and government settings there is a large and growing volume of ultra-high definition computer and video visual information—along with people making critical decisions based on that information,” says Steve Seminario, Planar’s senior director of product marketing. “With Planar UltraRes, we’re pleased to be leading the way for what we expect to be wide adoption of 4K resolution displays in these professional settings.”
The 84-inch UltraRes line comes in three models. The UR8450-LX 2D landscape display is designed for conference and control rooms. The UR8450-MX 2D landscape and portrait, higher brightness model is designed for digital signage and other higher ambient light environments. The UR8450-3D with 2D and 3D landscape support is ideal for decision rooms where both 2D and 3D images and video are viewed, according to Planar.
The entire line is targeted to ship Q2 2013.
