Beaverton, Ore. Planar Systems announced its Clarity LED Series rear projection video wall displays, ideal for government, military, energy, utilities, traffic and broadcast control room video walls that require 24/7 reliability and brilliant life-like images. Combining Planar’s exclusive Clarity NaturalColor for a superior visual performance and maintenance-free solid state illumination, with up to eight times the life of traditional lamps, the new Clarity LED Series supports the company’s strategy to deliver innovative display solutions for mission-critical environments.
The Clarity LED Series includes the 70-in. c70HD-LED (1920X1080 resolution), Clarity RP-LED (SXGA+ resolution) and Clarity RX-LED (XGA resolution) rear-projection displays (available in 50” and 67”). All displays within the Clarity LED Series utilize the latest DLP technology and are available with Open or Indisys image processing electronics options.
Control-room applications that operate 24/7 require uninterrupted operation and benefit from reduced maintenance requirements. Planar’s Clarity LED Series illumination system has a rated life of 60,000 hours and employs no consumable parts such as color wheels or lamps. Solid-state LED illumination results in fewer moving parts that can break down and eliminates the costs and interruptions associated with lamp changes.
The combination of maintenance-free, reliable 24/7 operation and long-life benefit end sers with a lower total cost of ownership. Additionally, LED technology used in the Clarity LED Series proves to be more environmentally friendly compared with other display technologies thanks to its lack of consumable parts and mercury-free and lead-free design.
The Clarity LED Series displays are designed, built and tested as complete systems rather than kits, ensuring smooth installation and optimum performance. Each LED Series display features Planar’s Set it and Forget it (SiFi) Auto Color and Brightness Balance to provide a balanced video wall for the life of the product. SiFi Auto Color and Brightness Balance is the only color balance system to continuously monitor the LED, measure the output of the full light path of the engine and maintain site-specific adjustments, making it easy for the customer to maintain a balanced and uniform video wall.
The Clarity LED video wall is available for purchase through Planar’s worldwide network of authorized control room resellers and will begin shipping in the third fiscal quarter of 2010. For more information, visit planarcontrolroom.com.
