• DirectView LED: A bezel-free display technology for video walls, offering seamless visuals and superior picture quality.

• Advantages of DirectView LED: Consistent color and image uniformity, longer lifespan, and the ability to create large video walls without size limitations.

• Partnership success: Planar is a trusted partner for video wall solutions, with DirectView LED gaining popularity for its unique applications and advancements.

DirectView LED technology, while not new, has undergone significant advancements to meet the evolving needs of various applications. Unlike traditional LCD video walls, DirectView LED eliminates bezels, providing a seamless, uniform picture that captivates viewers. Planar, a renowned player in the display market, has been offering cutting-edge video wall solutions for over four decades.

DirectView LED’s popularity stems from its ability to overcome the limitations of LCD displays. While LCD panels have size constraints, DirectView LED can be scaled to virtually any size, making it ideal for larger displays. Additionally, DirectView LED offers enhanced image uniformity and color consistency, as there are no independent displays that age differently. This technology has a longer lifespan, typically around 10 years, compared to the five-year warranty offered for LCD video walls.

The flexibility and ease of installation make DirectView LED a preferred choice for various applications. Unlike large LCD displays that require cumbersome logistics, DirectView LED panels can be easily transported and assembled. Planar’s DirectView LED solutions, such as the Direct Light Ultra cabinets, deliver high peak brightness and exceptional picture quality, rivaling hand-built OLED televisions. The advancements in technology have made DirectView LED more cost-effective, making it an attractive option for conference rooms, boardrooms, and other corporate environments.

Planar’s commitment to showcasing the potential of DirectView LED is evident through its network of showrooms across the country. These showrooms provide firsthand experiences of the brilliance and quality of DirectView LED displays, leaving a lasting impression on visitors and clients.

DirectView LED technology has revolutionized the display industry, offering seamless, vibrant, and visually stunning video walls. Planar, with its extensive experience and expertise, continues to push the boundaries of DirectView LED technology. As prices become more affordable, the adoption of DirectView LED is expected to increase, transforming the way we experience visual content in various settings. To fully grasp the power of DirectView LED, it’s highly recommended to witness its brilliance firsthand in one of Planar’s showrooms.
