By combining Planar’s exclusive Extended Ruggedness and Optics (ERO) optical glass bonding technology with Gorilla Glass, an industry-leading cover solution, the 84-inch 4K Planar UltraRes Touch is durable and scratch resistant, making it ideal for digital signage and public venue applications. Planar UltraRes Touch now also supports up to 32 simultaneous touch points, offering the ultimate solution for multi-user applications, including collaboration walls and touch tables.
“The addition of Corning Gorilla Glass to our proprietary ERO optical bonding technology further enhances the durability and visual performance of the Planar UltraRes Touch display,” said Becky Connors, product marketing manager at Planar Systems. “By dramatically increasing the number of touch points, we’ve made it possible for organizations to create highly immersive and engaging experiences.”
For retail stores, museums, hospitality and corporate lobbies, Planar UltraRes Touch offers the durability and flexibility needed for a robust interactive experience. Planar UltraRes Touch also provides the key features necessary for corporate meeting rooms where touch capability enhances group collaboration.Built for Unsurpassed Durability and Performance With Planar's ERO technology, Corning Gorilla Glass is optically bonded to the LCD cell using a proprietary process unique to Planar, providing exceptional durability and performance. The ERO process keeps out dust and moisture and improves image contrast by eliminating the air gap between the display and the glass. Gorilla Glass is more than four times stronger than tempered soda-lime glass, which enables a substantially-thinner design, and it better resists scratches that can cause the glass to break. Due to the Gorilla Glass’ thinness, parallax and the resulting touch errors are reduced, weight is decreased, while touch sensitivity and display responsiveness are improved.
