Planar Expands Portfolio of Fine Pitch LED Display Solutions


New line brings affordable fine pitch LED performance to a broader range of applications

Planar, a global leader in visualization technology, today announced an expansion to the company’s portfolio of fine pitch LED display solutions with the release of the Planar® MGP Series. The new family of fine pitch LED video wall displays introduces affordable solutions that are suitable for replacing legacy display technology. Planar MGP Series makes fine pitch LED an accessible alternative to formerly projection or tiled LCD environments including retail settings, classrooms, lecture halls and houses of worship, as well as digital signage applications replacing printed signage such as banner displays and ribbon boards.

Planar MGP Series is available in 1.2, 1.5 and 1.8 millimeter pixel pitches and features a 27-inch diagonal, 16:9 cabinet that is designed to support full front-service, wall-mounted installation. The new series also introduces Planar® MGP Complete, a line of lightweight, pre-packaged LED video wall displays offered in 108-inch, 136-inch and 163-inch diagonal Full HD video wall sizes that are designed to reduce time and complexity of video wall design and installation.

“Today’s customers recognize the value of large-size, seamless LED video walls that can support next-level viewing experiences, but they’re also looking for ways to reduce the complexities that often come with deploying a video wall,” said Steve Seminario, vice president of product development at Planar. “The products introduced today allow us to offer more flexibility, simplify the buying process and make fine pitch LED the clear choice for an even broader set of customers and applications.”

Planar MGP Series and Planar MGP Complete are accessible options for customers who are new to seamless LED technology, further extending Planar’s customer reach. As a pioneer and global leader in fine pitch LED, Planar has deployed hundreds of fine pitch LED video walls worldwide. Planar MGP Series and Planar MGP Complete combine the company’s nearly 40-year history designing best-in-class video walls with an unparalleled dedication to making video walls accessible and easier to deploy. As a result, Planar now offers affordable fine pitch LED video wall solutions that are backed by trailblazing innovation and industry expertise, allowing customers to implement direct view LED in applications previously thought to be too expensive.

Planar MGP Complete is designed for customers who want to experience the many advantages of LED technology, including seamless images, vivid colors, long-life performance and low-cost maintenance, but are also looking for a cost-effective solution. Designed and packaged as a complete solution, Planar MGP Complete is also priced as a viable alternative to legacy technologies. It also reinforces the trusted manufacturer’s ongoing commitment to provide industry-leading families of fine pitch and large-scale, pre-packaged LED displays that support sizable, seamless viewing for next-level visual experiences.
