Huntsville Int'l Airport first to install Planar Clarity Matrix LCD video wall system

Planar Systems has announced that Huntsville (Ala.) International Airport has installed the new Clarity Matrix LCD video wall system. The Clarity Matrix system is designed to deliver tiled visual performance and uninterrupted operation for digital signage and control-room applications.
Huntsville International Airport, known for its high-end technology and focus on customer convenience, selected Planar’s Clarity Matrix LCD video wall System to display flight information and local TV broadcasting.
In October, the airport installed 21 Matrix displays in a 7-foot by 3-foot video wall, taking advantage of the product’s unique mounting system, which was critical to the application given the curved nature of Huntsville’s video wall. 
“We needed a flexible display solution that would communicate information to customers but still make a visual statement and act as the centerpiece for a newly renovated waiting area of the airport,” said Rick Tucker, executive director for Huntsville International Airport. “With Clarity Matrix, Planar helped us customize a unique solution that met our technology challenges, and we’re extremely pleased with the result.”
Traditionally, the flat displays used in digital signage applications including at retail, transportation stations and sports/public venues have larger bezels that can obstruct portions of on-screen content and disrupt the overall look when used in video walls. By incorporating 46-inch LCD panels that tile together with only a 7.3mm image-to-image gap, the Clarity Matrix LCD video wall system creates a near-seamless image. Additional performance-enhancing features include Planar’s BigPicture Plus built-in processing, which allows the operator to fill the tiled displays using single or multiple sources. 
Another key component of the Clarity Matrix LCD video wall system is its EasyAxis mounting solution. Featuring six-axis adjustments, the mounting system helps create stunning and precise tiled images. At only 4.5 inches from screen-to-wall, the system is designed for space-constrained public venue and control-room environments that require dynamic, large-format video wall solutions but may not be able to accommodate deeper rear-projection displays.
