PORTLAND, OR — Planar, a leader in visualization technology, has introduced the Planar CarbonLight VX Series, a line of LED display solutions optimized to meet the needs of the exploding virtual production (VP) and extended reality (XR) markets.
Featuring a lightweight, patented carbon fiber construction, the Planar CarbonLight VX Series supports indoor fine pitch LED video wall, ceiling and flooring installations to offer the deployment versatility today’s VP, XR and broadcast applications need with exceptional on-camera visual performance. This includes settings spanning film and movie sets, broadcast studios and entertainment venues, as well as education and corporate facilities.
Introduced as part of the Planar Studios initiative, the Planar CarbonLight VX Series bolsters Planar’s selection of cutting-edge LED display products that deliver the performance and capabilities today’s VP and XR professionals need to create realistic on-screen content. Building on the company’s Planar CarbonLight LED Displays portfolio, the Planar CarbonLight VX Series offers VP and XR customers LED solutions that support a range of studio sizes and configurations for unparalleled flexibility in studio set-up and configuration.
The new Planar CarbonLight VX Series introduces two LED display lines that are designed to integrate with VP and XR stages, including the Planar CarbonLight CLI VX Series and Planar CarbonLight CLF VX Series.
The Planar CarbonLight CLI VX Series supports hanging, wall-mounted, free-standing and curved LED video wall installations, in addition to other unique shapes that are intended to help smaller stages appear larger. This includes 90-degree corners, which are made possible by the series’ beveled edges. Planar CarbonLight CLI VX Series also allows customers to remove and install cabinets anywhere within the video wall without disrupting the overall layout.
Available in 1.9 and 2.6 millimeter pixel pitches, the Planar CarbonLight CLI VX Series features models with Brompton VP controllers.
The Planar CarbonLight CLI VX Series also comes in models featuring VP controllers from Colorlight.
Delivering state-of-the-art image quality, Planar CarbonLight CLI VX Series features HDR support, improved thermal management and uniformity, precise yet flexible color management and a wide color gamut for greater color compatibility, including up to DCI-P3 color space with the Planar CarbonLight CLI VX1.9 model. The family also includes a high LED refresh rate (3840Hz) to support smooth motion and offers frame rates ranging from 24 – 144 Hz to ensure compatibility with various camera settings. In addition to delivering superior in-person and in-frame image performance, the Planar CarbonLight CLI VX Series’ narrow pixel pitches support close viewing distances, allowing audiences to view content as close as nearly 14 feet away without seeing any individual pixels on the display.
The new LED video wall line also features a common cathode architecture to consume less power and heat, and with high-strength carbon fiber frames and Planar CarbonLight bracketry, it supports quick video wall assembly for fast-paced applications.
The Planar CarbonLight VX Series will begin shipping in July and be available through Planar’s global network of authorized resellers.
