Planar has unveiled its new QE Series of Ultra HD LCD displays for delivering high-impact digital signage. Available in 75-inch, 86-inch and 98-inch sizes, the Planar QE Series incorporates an embedded media player and software, providing a simple and cost-effective way to design, distribute and play back ultra-high resolution digital signage on a single display or multiple displays within a network. Multi-touch models are also available for those seeking to collaborate or interact with the displays.
“Market momentum towards the use of large format 4K displays in commercial applications is undeniable,” said Steve Seminario, vice president of product marketing at Planar and Leyard. “The Planar QE Series was designed to further break down barriers to 4K adoption in digital signage and collaboration by providing an affordable and simple professional solution.”
All Planar QE Series displays offer cutting-edge 4K video performance, with support for native 4K at up to 60Hz, with HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 to enable smooth motion video. The displays allow for four sources to be simultaneously viewed in quadrants on the display, making them perfect for collaboration or huddle environments in conference rooms as well as digital signage applications. The displays can be oriented in landscape or portrait and come with a logo-free, all-metal bezel design. Audio is built into each display with two internal 10-watt speakers. The QE Series displays also come with an embedded Planar ContentSmart 4K Media Player, allowing users to easily deploy and manage digital signage displays. The media player includes two USB ports and an internal time clock for scheduling playlists.
