Leyard and Planar to Showcase Video Wall Innovations at InfoComm 2018

Leyard and Planar announced they will showcase the industry’s latest advancements in integrated video processing at InfoComm 2018 booth C2520. The Leyard DirectLight X LED Video Wall System and the Clarity Matrix G3 LCD Video Wall System are comprehensive video wall solutions that incorporate the latest in 4K video standards, advanced video processing and web-based control that enable dynamic, multi-source video walls, right out of the box.

Leyard DirectLight X and Clarity Matrix G3 build on the success of these award-winning LED and LCD product lines with the new, off-board Leyard Video Controller that takes built-in video processing to a new level. The Leyard Video Controller incorporates video wall scaling with Planar Big Picture Plus video wall processing, allowing users to display content across the entire video wall, a portion of the video wall or in custom recallable layouts.

The flagship LED and LCD video wall solutions further simplify installation and management with new Leyard WallDirector, a web-based user interface that streamlines video wall set-up, configuration, operation, and monitoring. Both solutions also come with Leyard WallSync, a set of technologies that facilitate video playback across entire video walls with perfect synchronization. Leyard and Planar will demonstrate all of these technologies at InfoComm 2018 booth C2520.

“We are excited to showcase our widest array of new video wall solutions at InfoComm 2018,” said Steve Seminario, vice president of product marketing at Leyard and Planar. “Customers will see newly announced products like Leyard DirectLight X, and we’re also previewing several brand new technologies and looking forward to the market feedback.”
