Planar announced the launch of its new outdoor LED display product, the Planar HRO Series. The Planar HRO Series expands the company’s portfolio of LED display solutions with a high brightness, fine pixel pitch LED offering that is built for close-up daylight video viewing. The Planar HRO Series delivers impactful visual experiences for audiences even in direct sunlight.
Planar HRO Series features some of the finest pixel pitches available for outdoor LED displays, 1.5 mm and 1.9 mm. The fine pixel pitch paired with 3,500 nit brightness and a 16:9 aspect ratio for video make the series ideal in a variety of outdoor applications ranging from uncovered business pavilions and amphitheater backdrops to poolside hospitality, transportation signage and retail exteriors.
According to Planar, the new outdoor LED displays are built to endure the weather with LED treatments designed to protect them from UV rays, dust, water and casual contact, without negatively impacting the viewing experience. Planar HRO Series displays feature protective plates on the backside of the displays to cover cables and mechanics, helping ensure a longer life for the solution regardless of environmental factors. The displays enable wall-mounted or stacked installations and feature full front service for simplified maintenance.
The new series offers display models in 130-inch, 174-inch and 217-inch and 260-inch diagonal sizes. The models’ resolutions start at Full HD (1920 x 1080) on the 130” model and increase to 4K (3840 x 2160) on the 260” model, to ensure crisp visuals for users as close as 10 feet away (3 meters).
