Visualization: Curved video walls benefit from new rear-projection displays

Planar Systems Inc. has launched Clarity RP and RX rear-projection displays.


What's going on in operations has become easier to see. Planar Systems Inc. has launched Clarity RP and RX rear-projection displays, which deliver a high level of visual performance for

control room environments

. Available in 50- and 67-inch sizes and open or integrated system options, the lines feature

Texas Instruments'

single-chip DLP with Planar’s Set It and Forget It (SiFi) technology, a proprietary feature that reduces time and expertise required to balance a video wall. The RP series is the first SiFi-equipped Clarity display geared for data-rich applications, such as running supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) software or high-resolution satellite imagery/mapping.
The screens are designed to fit together with zero-mullion while retaining 100% pixel viewing, eliminating viewing obstruction due to screen staples or stitching. Both offer rear-access and full-front access screen design, and can be deployed in curved video wall configurations, while retaining full front serviceability. Two screen options enhance performance for different video wall and room configurations.
For those seeking a turnkey video wall solution, displays are available in integrated system options (RPi and RXi). Clarity RX display provides a competitively-priced solution for control rooms requiring standard XGA native resolution (1,024 x 768), delivering SiFi for brightness and color balance. SiFi auto color balance (ACB) can be initiated on-demand over a network or via remote control, automatically by schedule or event.
“Now with the availability of RP and RX displays, Planar offers resellers and integrators a comprehensive line of high-performing display solutions for differentiated control room applications,” said Kristina K. Gorriaran, vice president and general manager of Planar’s control room and signage business unit. “Our displays deliver outstanding performance, high image quality, maximum readability and ease of installation that mission-critical environments require.”
Manufacturers’ suggested retail price (MSRP) for open system Clarity RX displays start at $14,000 for the 50-inch Clarity c50RX and $18,000 for the 67-inch Clarity c67RX. MSRP for Clarity RP displays begins at $23,500 for the 50-inch Clarity c50RP and $28,500 for the 67-inch Clarity c67RP.
