Oregon-based Planar, prominent in visualization technology, announced the launch of the Planar Venue Pro VX Series. The series is a family of indoor fine pixel-pitch LED videowall displays delivering exceptional in-camera visual performance for virtual production (VP) and extended reality (XR), as well as on-camera visual performance for broadcasters.
The series combines high performing scan and refresh rates with high brightness and narrow pixel pitches. This makes it well-suited for LED XR stages in diverse markets, says Planar. The markets include film and video production, corporate, broadcast, rental and staging, and live events.
According to Planar, the Venue Pro VX Series support hanging, stacked or wall-mounted installations. It also expands on the capabilities of the company’s first solution designed to revolutionize the production of realistic in-screen and on-screen content, the Planar CarbonLight VX Series.
The Venue Pro VX Series feature support for HDR-ready content, a wide color gamut, including up to DCI-P3 color space, and compatibility with a wide range of cameras. Thus, the series delivers visual performance and deployment versatility needed to develop lifelike recorded, streamed or broadcast video content.
Bolstering Planar Studios Initiative
Per a statement, the release of the Planar Venue Pro VX Series bolsters the Planar Studios initiative. It further expands the company’s portfolio of visualization solutions designed to support VP and XR.
The newest addition, backed by Planar’s dedicated VP and XR team, includes pre-sales and post-sales support from local experts. This reinforces Planar’s commitment to making such applications streamlined and available to mainstream markets.
“Increasing popularity of VP and XR applications presents a need for high performing but versatile LED display products,” says Steve Seminario, vice president of product marketing at Planar. “The Planar Venue Pro VX Series takes learnings from the Planar CarbonLight VX Series, offering customers the most sought-after features in a flexible, economical LED solution that’s designed to maximize in-camera performance.”
The new Planar Venue Pro VX Series helps reduce the complexity of setup and teardown, says the company. It also has magnetically-attachable cabinets with quick locks for single-person installation. Moreover, the series includes mechanical features to suit both temporary applications and fixed installations.
The series is available in 1.9mm and 2.5mm pixel pitches. Furthermore, it is compatible with Brompton LED processors and LED controllers from Colorlight.
