INFOCOMM: Planar unveils new control room, public display solutions

LAS VEGAS — Planar Systems Inc. unveiled three new displays, the Clarity x100HD, Clarity c80RP and Planar m52L, as well as the new Indisys Director image processing software.

The Clarity x100HD is a 100-inch large-screen display designed to be flush-mounted in a wall, ideal for conference rooms, control rooms, security monitoring and broadcast applications. For true-to-life images, the full high-definition x100HD features DLP BrilliantColor technology, which offers a brighter display and a wider color gamut not available in competing technologies.  

The 80-inch Clarity c80RP offers SXGA+ native resolution, SiFi Auto Color Balance to achieve consistent brightness and color uniformity across screens, and a new high-contrast screen for sharp image, high brightness and excellent tiling performance. The c80RP screen features Planar’s unique seamless screen technology and calibrated brackets to simplify the deployment of perfectly uniform curved video walls. 

The m52L joins the m-Series family of commercial-grade LCD displays suited for control room, broadcast and public display applications. Designed for use in tiled or stand-alone use, the m52L features the narrowest-available bezel (16mm) in the industry for a 52-inch LCD, built-in tiling software, intelligent backlight control and a wide range of source compatibility and connectivity.  The m52L features a fully adjustable high brightness LCD panel and full HD (1920x1080p) resolution.

Designed for a variety of applications including utility control rooms, security and surveillance, traffic control, government, network operations centers and emergency call centers, Indisys Director offers complete end-to-end management of video and data acquisition, distribution and display, making it a unique, cohesive solution that is customizable for specific market needs. 

Indisys Director helps improve workflow and productivity by providing control over key data such as event triggers, drag and drop sources, presets and live source and video wall thumbnails. Additionally, Indisys Director communicates with the Indisys in-cube processor in order to manage and control the video wall itself. Indisys Director allows the operator to power cubes on and off, launch Set it and Forget it (SiFi) Auto Color Balance on the video wall and report and respond to conditions such as system temperature and lamp life.
