Planar Mosaic was also awarded Best New Video Wall Product by AV Technology magazine, an award that honors end-users and AV innovation. According to AV Technology judges, Planar’s Mosaic product is innovative and beautiful, re-inventing the wall from displaying art, to being art. “ Thinking outside the ‘box,’ Planar Mosaic re-invents the wall - from displaying art, to being art.” – AV Technology magazine “We are honored by the recognition awarded to Planar Mosaic by Commercial Integrator and AV Technology magazines,” said Jennifer Davis, vice president of marketing at Planar Systems. “This industry recognition further validates how Planar is creating new possibilities for video displays in architectural applications, allowing designers to realize the impact of video tiles as a dynamic alternative to traditional wall coverings.” Introduced in February 2012, the Planar Mosaic architectural video wall system empowers designers to integrate LCD tiles of three sizes, including a true-square LCD tile, measuring 21.6 inches diagonally. Utilizing proprietary Mosaic Ensemble™ software and hardware, the tiles can be rotated at virtually any angle and mounted in any position. Video or images can be displayed across the entire tile array, encouraging designers to experiment with negative space while extending project budgets.
