Leyard Planar Do Wallapalooza AGAIN! You NEED to go!

Leyard Planar has kicked off its 2nd Annual Video Wallapalooza road show – a 12-city tour showcasing the latest Leyard and Planar products, most of which were launched at this year’s InfoComm. If you weren’t able to make it to InfoComm 2017 or to the Leyard Planar booth, this roadshow is a must, must, must! The two-day event includes product demonstrations, education sessions and networking events.

At each stop — San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Houston, Chicago, New York, St. Louis and Atlanta — attendees will see LED video wall technology from Leyard and the newest Planar LCD video walls and 4K display gear. Wallapalooza is for integrators, dealers, resellers AND end-users — and it’s a hands-on event where users can literally touch and pick the products that are the best solution for any current or upcoming project. Here’s how to register for the next stop in a city near you.

During the two-day educational experience — with two of the classes are AVIXA CTS RU certified — there are three classes being offered, including an overview of the LED video wall solutions from Leyard Planar, installing video walls and a course focused on the basics of fine pitch LED. A full course description of each one is below. 

Each stop will showcase Leyard Planar’s LED video wall solutions including: Leyard’s LED MultiTouch, an interactive LED video wall that blew me away at InfoComm — one of the top-three things I saw at the show in 2017! The Leyard DirectLight LED video wall system, the line of Leyard TWS Series and the CarbonLight CLI Series. Additionally Planar will showcase the UltraRes Series of LCD displays and the QE and PS Series of LCD displays.
