Planar Debuts New LED Video Wall Displays for Close-Up Outdoor Viewing
Planar has added to its portfolio with the release of a fine-pitch, high-bright outdoor LED video wall designed for up-close viewing. The company says its new Luminate Ultra Series LED video wall display features coated LEDs to deliver ruggedness and exceptional image detail for high-ambient light environments.
The Planar Luminate Ultra Series is designed to enhance viewing angles, providing nearly 140-degree visibility with limited interference—even in direct sunlight. Featuring models in 1.5mm and 1.9mm pixel pitches and up to 3,300-nit brightness, the Luminate Ultra Series supports comfortable viewing from as close as 6 ft. for applications spanning transportation signage, retail exteriors, poolside cinema, entertainment, hospitality, and other large venue facilities.
“We have seen strong demand for high pixel-density LED displays designed to perform in sunlight and outdoor conditions,” said Steve Seminario, vice president of product marketing at Planar. “Planar Luminate Ultra Series brings together fine-pitch, high-brightness, and a coating technology that protects while delivering beautiful outdoor viewing. It’s a unique combination we are excited to bring to customers.”
In addition to supporting wall-mounted, corner, convex, and concave installations, the solution offers customers the flexibility to create a video wall of nearly any size. With full front-side and rear installation and service, Luminate Ultra Series customers also benefit from enhanced deployment versatility and simplified maintenance, according to the company.
Featuring an IP65 rating, the displays incorporate protective treatments designed to withstand weather conditions, dust, and water. For added assurance and ruggedness, Planar Luminate Ultra Series displays include a protective coating that fills the gaps between LEDs; the company says this not only strengthens weather protection, but also increases visual contrast for deeper black levels.
Planar will demonstrate the new solution for the first time at CEDIA Expo 2022 in Booth 15003.
