Featuring models in 1.5 and 1.9-millimeter pixel pitches and up to 3,300-nit brightness, the Planar Luminate Ultra Series supports comfortable viewing from as close as six feet for applications spanning transportation signage, retail exteriors, poolside cinema, entertainment, hospitality, and other large-venue facilities.

It’s a unique combination we are excited to bring to customers.”

Featuring an IP65 Ingress Protection Rating, the displays incorporate protective treatments designed to withstand weather conditions, dust and water. For added assurance and ruggedness, Planar Luminate Ultra Series displays include a protective coating that fills the gaps between LEDs. This not only strengthens weather protection, but also increases visual contrast for deeper black levels.

Planar will demonstrate the new solution for the first time at CEDIA 2022 (opens in new tab) in Dallas September 29 through October 1 in Planar Booth #15003.
