The Planar Simplicity Series now features four sizes, 32” and 42”, introduced in Fall 2013, and 46” and 55” announced today. “Planar Simplicity Series displays are a sleek, commercial-quality digital signage display solution that’s both economical and easy to deploy, making it the perfect canvas for commercial content,” said Becky Connors, product marketing manager at Planar Systems. “And with the availability of the 46” and 55” sizes, we’ve now expanded the series, offering our customers a broad range of choices for their digital signage needs.” The Planar Simplicity Series redefines simple signage, both in terms of functionality and design. With built-in media playing, the cost and complexity of installing third-party media players is eliminated. Planar Simplicity Series displays are easy to install and allow users to create and display content using tools they already have—including videos, photography from cell phone cameras, stock photos and music libraries. From a single-display installation to a multi-display network, the Planar Simplicity Series was designed to bring simplicity to nearly every digital signage project. The displays are highly versatile, supporting playback of a wide variety of media formats. They also come with a full array of inputs and can be controlled remotely through LAN or RS-232.
In terms of design, the displays feature an elegant, slim profile—less than 1.7” deep— blending naturally into any environment and achieving compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for protruding objects in public spaces. In addition, the bezels contain no distracting logos, keeping the focus on the content itself.With prices starting at $595, the Planar Simplicity Series extends the benefits of digital signage to a wider range of organizations, including those with limited budgets. Moreover, the displays use LED backlight technology allowing the displays to operate at industry-low levels of power consumption, making them highly energy efficient. Planar Simplicity Series displays are available through Planar’s network of authorized resellers.
