Today at InfoComm 2011, Planar Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:PLNR), a worldwide leader in specialty display solutions, became the first display manufacturer to introduce an LCD video wall solution with integrated, multi-touch capabilities. Planar’s Clarity™ Matrix Touch™ provides a turnkey solution for deploying multi-touch video walls in public spaces, interactive signage applications, and commercial and government collaboration rooms.
The Clarity Matrix Touch offers the following benefits:
- Easy Installation and Maintenance. Planar’s ERO glass is optically bonded to the front of each LCD, eliminating the need for a separate protective surface and enabling modular installation and maintenance. Standard configuration kits streamline installation of the touch system.
- Dual-Touch with Gestures. Users interact with the screen using fingertips and gestures to scroll through menus, expand and shrink images, or create written annotations.
- The ERO Advantage. The proximity of the LCD screen and ERO glass reduces parallax error that can occur when interacting with protective glass surfaces mounted farther from the screen. The bonded glass screen also prevents the buildup of hot air between the glass and the screen. Excessive heat can damage LCD picture quality and shorten the life span of the displays.
- Larger Digital Canvases. The modular design enables larger video walls in different sizes and configurations. The Clarity Matrix Touch will debut in three sizes and configurations: 92-inches (2x2), 130-inches (3x2), and 138-inches (3x3).
