PORTLAND, ORE. —Planar Systems, Inc., a display and digital signage technology company, has introduced the Clarity Matrix LCD Video Wall System with G2 Architecture.
The Clarity Matrix with G2 Architecture combines a thin profile LED LCD video wall with improvements in design, installation and service. In addition, a 55” Clarity Matrix model sets a new benchmark with a tiled bezel width as small as 3.7 mm (0.15 inches).
The Clarity Matrix with G2 Architecture delivers visual performance with image quality, aligned panels and high resolution. It features narrow bezels with a tiled bezel width as small as 3.7mm (0.15 inches) between adjacent LCD screens. It also comes with Planar’s EasyAxis Mounting System, which provides an installed depth of 3.6” (91mm) for panel-to-panel alignment, which makes the Clarity Matrix with G2 Architecture compliant with the Americans with Disabilities requirement for protruding objects of less than 4 inches.
The Clarity Matrix with G2 Architecture also provides 4K input capability and 10-bit color processing. Planar’s Big Picture Plus processing is built into the system, enabling content to be scaled across the entire video wall or sections of the video wall.
The simplified installation and service enables A/V resellers and system integrators to offer a high performance video wall system at a lower total-cost-of-ownership.
With built-in video extension of up to 330 feet (100 meters), Clarity Matrix with G2 Architecture offers installation flexibility while eliminating third-party cable extenders. Like the previous generation, no AC power outlets are required, and a single power supply module can drive as many as eight displays, reducing the rack space requirement and further reducing the number of power outlets required.
The Clarity Matrix with G2 Architecture features off-board electronics architecture, and it integrates Planar’s WallNet software, making it possible to monitor display performance and troubleshoot issues remotely.
The Clarity Matrix provides reliability for utility, traffic management, military and law enforcement control rooms. With a 25 percent reduction in heat produced from off-board electronics and power supplies, the Clarity Matrix with G2 Architecture exceeds performance and lifetime, and the redundant power supply module provides continuous operation.
The Clarity Matrix with G2 Architecture is available through Planar’s network of authorized resellers and will begin shipping this quarter.
