From fine pitch LED solutions, including a new line of seamless, wide-view LED displays for modern-day hybrid meetings, to an LED volume for extended reality (XR) for corporate communications, Planar will showcase the company’s most advanced set of LED display solutions for customers in corporate applications and beyond.
“At InfoComm 2022, Planar is presenting our strongest selection of state-of-the-art LED display solutions designed to transform workplace experiences,” said Steve Seminario, vice president of product marketing at Planar. “We are excited to demonstrate the latest in hybrid meeting room video walls, stunning MicroLED visual performance and an operating XR stage designed to take corporate in-camera production and communication to the next level.”
All-In-One Seamless, Wide-View LED Video Wall Displays for Next-Level Collaboration
At InfoComm 2022, the company will debut the Planar UC Complete family of seamless, wide-view LED video wall displays designed for video conferencing, unified communications (UC) and hybrid meeting rooms. Planar UC Complete video wall displays enable life-sized, high-resolution video conferencing windows and document sharing when used in conjunction with today’s most popular meeting room solutions such as front row for Microsoft Teams Rooms. Featuring 21:9 and 32:9 aspect ratio configurations and pixel pitches from 0.9 to 1.5 millimeters, Planar UC Complete displays provide a large seamless surface and close viewing distances, as well as help facilitate authentic and engaging video conference experiences between remote participants and their in-room colleagues.
The release of Planar UC Complete introduces five models offering customers a range of displays to choose from, including two 151-inch and two 205-inch models featuring 21:9 aspect ratios, and one 198-inch model with a 32:9 aspect ratio. With Planar UC Complete wide-view aspect ratio configurations, participants can view content and communicate in a clean, organized format that fosters productive hybrid meetings.
Planar UC Complete displays reduce the time, complexity and cost of designing and installing LED video walls. Each Planar UC Complete model is equipped with LED display cabinets, mounts, trim, cables, spare modules, IR remote and the powerful Planar WallDirector Video Controller, ensuring customers receive everything they need for hassle-free deployment. Customers simply select the video wall size and resolution and pair it with their preferred room communications system.
Planar UC Complete displays are compliant with the Trade Agreement Act (TAA) and American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA), and also include the Planar EverCare Lifetime Limited Warranty. This offers customers complete product coverage from controller to sub-pixel and everything in between for as long as the end customer continues to own and use it in a fixed location.
At InfoComm 2022 Planar will also showcase an XR stage complete with fine pitch LED display technology and motion capture technology from Planar’s sister company and industry leader, OptiTrack. The comprehensive XR stage will demonstrate how customers can transform their communications, creating immersive experiences for audiences.
The XR stage will be powered by the Planar CarbonLight VX Series line of carbon fiber-framed indoor LED video wall and flooring displays. Introduced in 2021 with the launch of the Planar Studios initiative to address today’s fast-growing virtual production (VP) and XR market, the family supports hanging, wall-mounted, free-standing and curved LED video wall as well as flooring installations. Planar CarbonLight VX Series also delivers exceptional on-camera and in-camera visual properties with unrivaled deployment versatility.
Attendees will also experience OptiTrack CinePuck, the first purpose-built tracking tool for VP and XR and broadcast studios. CinePuck delivers access to world-class tracking accuracy and precision, in addition to an all-new industrial grade IMU and ultra-bright wide-angle LEDs. The 6DoF IMU data is combined with optical data to produce a tracking result better than the sum of its parts, resulting in smooth tracking – even with significant occlusion.
Fine Pitch LED Video Wall Solutions
Planar will also exhibit three award-winning fine pitch LED video wall solutions that are well-suited for next-generation workplace experiences. This includes the Planar DirectLight Ultra Series line of premium fine pitch MicroLED video wall displays, the popular Planar TVF Series family of fine pitch LED video wall displays and the affordable Planar® MGP Series fine pitch LED video wall displays.
Available in 0.6-, 0.7-, 0.9- and 1.2-millimeter pixel pitches, Planar DirectLight Ultra Series features models with MicroLEDs, off-board power supply, proprietary alignment technology and built-in processing to deliver always-on, high-resolution display experiences for unmatched visual performance for close viewing distances and the most refined applications. Planar DirectLight Ultra includes the Planar EverCare Lifetime Limited warranty.
Also available with Planar EverCare, the Planar TVF Series delivers superior visual performance with a 16:9 aspect ratio that allows every pixel pitch to achieve popular resolutions and provides clear, crisp images at nearly every angle and viewing distance. Available in 0.9-, 1.2-, 1.5-, 1.8- and 2.5-millimeter pixel pitches and with a 27-inch, slim-profile display cabinet, Planar TVF Series features front serviceability and a creative, stackable design that eliminates cabinet-to-cabinet cabling and reduces the complexity of installation and vertical alignment.
With Planar MGP Series, customers benefit from a cost-effective solution that makes fine pitch LED an accessible alternative to formerly projection or tiled LCD applications. The displays feature a 27-inch diagonal, 16:9 cabinet that is designed to support full front-service, wall-mounted installation and are available in 1.2-, 1.5-, 1.8- and 2.5-millimeter pixel pitches.
