An exciting recent development in the home entertainment world comes with Planar®’s creation of the Clarity™ Matrix LCD Video WallSystem. Essentially, the Video Wall uses a combination of LCD screens to display image(s) across a large area. It provides the same giant picture as a projector, but without the need for a dark room.
Because the Video Wall uses a variety of different screens, it doesn’t follow the projector’s pattern of “blowing up” the image, which can cause the image to lose detail. Instead, additional resolution is added with every screen. So if you have 9 screens forming your video wall, you have 9x the resolution of one screen. The result is a beautiful, giant picture that maintains all of its original integrity.
The actual Video Wall can be any size or shape, and can display one large image or a variety of smaller ones. It can even doubly function as artwork (known as the Mosaic™ Architectural Video Wall).
An equally exciting creation, also from Planar®, is the UltraLux™ Series of LCD displays. These displays are interactive multi-touch displays, with up to 6 touch points. These displays, unlike the Video Walls described above, are single-panel displays. However, they are 70” to 80” in size and allow you to rearrange, manipulate, or magnify the image. To get the chance to interact with one of these amazing displays, you can come by our new store, where we’ll have one on display.
