Planar Debuts 98″ 4K Touch Screen LCD Display

planar-ultrares-1214Planar Systems’ new UltraRes Touch is a 4K resolution 98” touch-screen LCD display. The Planar UltraRes 98” Touch combines a multi-touch (32 simultaneous touch points), has 500-nit brightness and offers 3840×2160 resolution.

Integrated with Planar’s ERO (Extended Ruggedness and Optics) — an optical bonding technology is designed for safeguarding in high-traffic and long-term use applications. They say the bonded glass screen also improves optical performance and touch accuracy by eliminating the air gap between the protective glass and LCD screen. The Planar UltraRes 98” Touch utilizes LED backlight technology and passive cooling for energy efficiency thus, it consumes less than 0.5 watt of energy in standby mode and incorporates a fan-less design.
