Here’s more on what Leyard and Planar are showcasing at NAB 2016:

See-Through Display Technology

Leyard and Planar will also show its breakthrough Planar LookThru OLED Transparent Display at NAB 2016, which utilizes cutting-edge Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) to showcase dynamic or interactive information on a transparent surface glass.

This revolutionary display allows users to view what is shown on a glass video screen while still being able to see through it. Designers can overlay text, digital images and video content onto physical objects or scenes, like a busy newsroom, that sit behind the glass. The display, which can be tiled into custom fixtures with Planar image processing solutions to create a larger display canvas, offers opportunities for new applications never before imagined with transparent displays.

Leyard and Planar will showcase their latest innovations at Booth #SL10510 at NAB 2016. In addition, six industry leaders will showcase Leyard and Planar display technology in their booths at NAB 2016.

Leyard and Planar display solutions are available through the companies’ global network of authorized resellers. Additional information is available at www.planar.com.
