The What: Planar is enhancing its TVF Series family of fine-pitch LED video wall displays with the addition of a new TVF Complete model and by offering integration with the Planar WallDirector Video Controller (VC). 

The What Else: The Planar WallDirector VC and Planar WallDirector Software add secure video processing capabilities to the product while simplifying video wall control and management. In addition, Planar WallDirector VC is being added to Planar TVF Complete 109-inch to 219-inch LED video wall displays, allowing customers to more easily acquire, deploy and operate seamless LED video walls in popular resolutions and configurations. 

With Planar WallDirector VC, users can capture multiple sources while extending signals over CAT or fiber connections and scale modularly to support larger video walls.

The company is also enhancing and expanding Planar TVF Complete, a family of LED video wall displays designed to make seamless large size video walls easier and more cost-effective to deploy. The new Planar TVF Complete line now incorporates Planar WallDirector VC and includes a new Double Full HD 198-inch model aimed at the popular wide-view configuration for conference rooms and board rooms. The Planar WallDirector VC and Planar WallDirector Software combine a powerful and compact video processor, signal extension over CAT or fiber, multiple 4K60 capture, flexible window layout creation and recall, and complete control via web application, network commands, or remote plus on-screen display. Available in a range of Full HD, Ultra HD, and Double Full HD resolutions, Planar TVF Complete now offers customers a total of seven models to choose from.

The Bottom Line: Planar WallDirector VC is a family of compact and scalable video processors designed to drive Planar LED and LCD video walls. With Planar WallDirector VC scaling and windowing, customers can arrange, save, recall, and view their video sources in layouts that are most meaningful to them.
