Planar Becomes First With Cybersecurity Certification for Two Large Format LCD Display Families


Planar announced that two Planar large format LCD display families achieved a first-of-its-kind cybersecurity certification from the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). After meeting rigorous cybersecurity standards for Internet of Things (IoT) devices, the Planar UltraRes W Series ultra-wide format LCD display and Planar Simplicity M Series 4K LCD display are the Planar’s first commercial display offerings to be ETSI ETSI EN 303 645 certified, according to the company.

ETSI EN 303 645 is the first globally applicable standard for consumer IoT. The standard is designed to prevent large-scale, prevalent attacks against smart devices by establishing a security baseline for connected consumer products, in addition to providing a basis for future IoT certification schemes.

The company says achieving this certification furthers Planar’s commitment to adapt products and processes to best meet the product security needs of customers.

The Planar UltraRes W Series and Planar Simplicity M Series were independently tested to mitigate potential IoT cybersecurity risks. Certified products must include a comprehensive list of 33 required security features.

Certified to the most stringent global cybersecurity standard, according to Planar, the 105-inch Planar UltraRes W Series is “ideally sized to suit the most popular unified communications and video collaboration platforms such as Microsoft Teams with its Front Row layout.” In addition to being designed to mitigate cybersecurity threats, the series features brighter, wider color gamut panels with local dimming, 5K resolution and a 21:9 aspect ratio. Designed for 24×7 use, Planar UltraRes W Series is available in both non-touch and optically bonded 50-point projected capacitive touch technology, delivering a fast touch experience ideal for fast-paced collaboration.

Planar says the Simplicity M Series displays also enable interactivity with multi-point simultaneous touch. Available in sizes ranging from 43 to 86 inches, the 4K LCD displays facilitate easy, high-resolution digital signage streaming and media playback for environments spanning corporate meeting areas, medical offices, retail stores and restaurants. With a sleek, slim design and support for landscape or portrait orientation, Planar Simplicity M Series allows for a wider array of applications, providing greater creativity in content development.

Both large format product lines are also ENERGY STAR certified, identifying them as solutions that save operation costs and electricity.

The ETSI EN 303 645-certified LCD displays are now shipping through Planar’s global network of authorized resellers. For more information about Planar’s product security initiatives, visit
