Planar Clarity Matrix
For public venue and control room video wall customers who want the thinnest profile (optionally multi-touch interactive) LCD video wall and uninterrupted operation, Planar Clarity™ Matrix LCD Video Wall System is the ultra-narrow bezel LCD video wall family that provides outstanding tiled visual performance, supports 24×7 operation and requires minimal installation space.
Unlike other LCD video walls, Planar Clarity Matrix combines an ultra-thin profile and unique tiling optimization features in an integrated, mission-critical system design. The Planar Clarity Matrix family utilizes cutting-edge ultra-narrow bezel LCD’s with pixel-to-pixel gaps as small as 5.7mm between images on adjacent panels in the video wall.
The Planar Clarity Matrix LCD Video Wall System makes the most of LCD technology’s slim profile and vibrant visual performance while easing the difficulties in achieving perfect alignment, optimal cooling, simplified service and extended operation.
Choice of Planar Clarity Matrix LCD Panels
• Matrix MX for higher ambient light environments, available in 46″ and 55″
• Matrix LX 46″ for lower power consumption
• Matrix with EROTM 46″ for extended ruggedness and optics for public spaces and interactive touch applications
Planar Clarity Matrix Key Components
• Clarity Matrix EasyAxisTM mounting system simplifies the task of installing and perfectly aligning LCD modules while allowing for efficient servicing
• Clarity Matrix Quad Controller Module and Power Supply Module drive the video wall and facilitate uninterrupted operation
• Clarity Matrix configuration, management and processing software simplifies set-up and management of the video wall accommodating a range of image processing solutions
• One price, one complete video wall system
24×7 operation & Simplified Maintenance
The unique Planar Clarity Matrix architecture provides for 24×7 operation with optimized thermal design, high-MTBF components and redundant power supply option. Because of the streamlined design of the Matrix LCD modules, fewer repairs are required at the panel itself. When the panels do need to be accessed or removed, this can be accomplished without removing other panels in the wall. Starting at the top of the wall, panels can be pulled up and out into Service Mode, allowing the panel below to be accessed.
Also built into each Planar Clarity Matrix LCD display are service and troubleshooting aids that minimize downtime in the event of a failure. Power, backlight and fan monitoring are all built into Planar Clarity Matrix to provide failure notification. Clarity WallNet™ enables health and status monitoring over a customer network to proactively provide health status or send an email or text message to a service technician alerting them of a failure.
Redundant Power Supply
The rack-mount video processing and power supply units each support 4 LCD modules, incorporate their own cooling and make configuration, maintenance and upgrades easily accessible and unobtrusive to the video wall itself. For even further reliability, the Clarity Matrix power supply unit includes an n+1 redundant design so if any
one power supply in the unit fails, the remaining 4 will continue to power 4 LCD’s with uninterrupted operation.
Flexible video processing
Planar Clarity Matrix supports a wide range of processing options to display sources on the video wall. Planar’s Big Picture Plus processing is built into Clarity Matrix and allows sources to be scaled across the entire video wall or any section of the video wall. To simplify the set-up process of Big Picture Plus, Clarity Matrix has position sensors built
in the LCD that determine where it is located within the array and scale the sources across the video wall automatically. Big Picture Plus processing also allows for ultra-high resolution dual link DVI signals to be input and spread over multiple displays at native resolution. For more complex configurations, Clarity Matrix supports all leading
image processing and digital signage software solutions including Planar’s IndisysTM image processing.
Planar Clarity Matrix with Ero
Clarity Matrix with ERO features a glass front to provide increased ruggedness and optical performance for applications in public spaces or interactive touch. The glass surface is optically bonded to the front of the LCD with a proprietary construction and technique which maintains the narrow bezel spacing and creates a continuous surface when tiled together in a video wall. Planar Clarity Matrix with ERO also provides improved optical performance in high ambient light by providing additional ambient light rejection and increased contrast.
