Planar Launches First Thin Video Wall, Targets New Market

planar-mosaic-0212Planar Systems has launched a new product line that targets a totally new market for integrators. The Planar Mosaic has three flat panel tiles, including a new square LCD, and is specifically targeted at the architectural wall coverings market. If you have no idea what we’re talking about, a prototype exhibit of the Planar Mosaic video wall system will debut Feb. 16 through March 30 at the Cristin Tierney Gallery in New York City in conjunction with video artist Yorgo Alexopoulos.

Planar says the Mosaic is the only video wall system that allows designers to integrate three different LCD tile sizes and shapes — including a truly square LCD tile dubbed the Planar Salvador, 1:1 aspect ratio tile measuring 15.6 inches (39.5 cm) on each side. The Planar Vincent (48 inches / 122 cm wide) and the Planar Pablo (40 inches / 103 cm wide) are both rectangular LCD tiles. Utilizing the Mosaic Ensemble software and hardware, the tiles can be rotated at virtually any angle and mounted in any position, encouraging designers to experiment.

The Planar Mosaic video wall system features LED backlit displays that consume less energy than traditional LCD displays and offer an installation depth of less than 4 inches (10.16 cm), which is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
