Planar Intros Luminate Pro Series and Venue Pro Series of LED Displays for Indoor and Outdoor Applications
Planar has launched two new LED video wall display families in the form of the Planar Luminate Pro Series and Planar Venue Pro Series. The new displays feature mechanical elements that accelerate setup and takedown for temporary and mobile events, but also feature full front installation and serviceability, opening the door to more permanent wall-mounted applications. Each LED display line features 500x500mm cabinets that can be used for video wall applications. The cabinets can be hung, mounted on a wall or floor mount, or used to make curved walls. The displays feature cabinet-to-cabinet magnetic assistance to temporarily hold them in place while a single installer uses the quick-lock system to secure them.
The Planar Luminate Pro Series is intended for either indoor or outdoor environments with high ambient light or direct sunlight. Indoor models offer 3,000-nit brightness and are ideal for venues with large windows, skylights or bright lights such as airports, shopping malls and lobbies. The indoor models are available with fine and standard pixel pitches including 1.9, 2.5 and 3.9mm pixel pitches.
Outdoor models feature up to 5,500-nit brightness that makes them visible to viewers even in direct sunlight. They are available in five different pixel pitches from 2.9 up to 10.4mm to suit applications with viewing distances as close as 16 feet. The displays are designed to withstand harsh weather and extreme temperatures. A protective treatment guards LEDs from dust and moisture, earning the Planar Luminate Pro Series outdoor models an Ingress Protection Rating of IP65.
For environments that don’t feature as much ambient light, such as lecture halls, the Planar Venue Pro Series is another display available at 1,000 nits brightness. Models are available with 1.9, 2.5, 3.9 and 5.9mm pixel pitches, enabling viewing for audiences as close as 10 feet. The displays offer front or rear installation and all electronics are contained in a single, easily-removable compartment on the back of the cabinet.
