“The desirability of fine pitch displays that exactly hit 16:9 aspect ratio resolutions like Full HD and 4K, is well understood,” said Steve Seminario, vice president of product development at Planar. “What’s exciting about the Planar HRO Series is that it brings 16:9, fine pitch and high brightness to the outdoors where more of our customers are looking to deploy high quality video.”

Planar HRO Series features some of the finest pixel pitches available for outdoor LED displays, 1.5 millimeter and 1.9 millimeter. The fine pixel pitch paired with 3,500-nit brightness and a 16:9 aspect ratio for video make the series ideal in a variety of outdoor applications ranging from uncovered business pavilions and amphitheater backdrops to poolside hospitality, transportation signage and retail exteriors.

Planar HRO Series LED displays are built to endure the weather with LED treatments designed to protect them from ultraviolet rays, dust, water and casual contact, without negatively impacting the viewing experience. Planar HRO Series displays feature protective plates on the backside of the displays to cover cables and mechanics, helping ensure a longer life for the solution regardless of environmental factors. The displays enable wall-mounted or stacked installations and feature full front service for simplified maintenance.

The launch of Planar HRO Series also introduces Planar ® HRO Complete, a line of pre-packaged outdoor LED video walls designed to reduce time and complexity of video wall design and installation. Planar HRO Complete is available in 130-inch, 174-inch and 217-inch and 260-inch diagonal sizes. The models’ resolutions start at Full HD (1920 x 1080) on the 130” model and increase to 4K (3840 x 2160) on the 260” model, to ensure crisp visuals for users as close as 10 feet away (3 meters).

Planar HRO Complete includes a display, controller, cables, trim and wall mount, and is delivered ready to install supporting fast deployment and time to use. Optional floor stands and hanging mounts are also available.
