Planar Video Wall Takes Home Best of Show Award at NAB 2024

The premium fine pixel pitch Planar DirectLight Pro Series is honored by Sound & Video Contractor as a product leading the way in media and technology

April 30, 2024 - Planar announced a new award win for the Planar® DirectLight® Pro Series fine pixel pitch LED video wall. Honored at NAB 2024 in Las Vegas, the popular LED platform was named a Best of Show award winner by Sound & Video Contractor.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Future’s prestigious Best of Show awards at NAB recognize outstanding products and solutions in the technology and media industries.

With a range of popular pixel pitches down to sub-1 millimeter and 1,000-nit brightness in constant operation, Planar DirectLight Pro Series LED video walls deliver vibrant colors and greater image detail even in higher ambient light environments. This is enhanced by support for rich media playback, including High Dynamic Range (HDR), delivering unmatched performance on and off-camera for broadcast studios, control rooms, conference and boardrooms, education environments and beyond.

“This year at NAB we presented our most comprehensive lineup of industry-leading broadcast and media technologies,” said Tom Petershack, director of media and special projects at Planar. “With the Planar DirectLight Pro Series, customers benefit from the best characteristics of our most popular LED platforms, including the finest pixel pitches, simplified monitoring, multiple cabinet sizes and deployment versatility as well as increased brightness and power efficiency for unrivaled on-camera broadcast presentation. The solution continues to make a significant impact for customers in a wide set of markets and we’re thrilled to have it celebrated as one of the very best products in technology and media.”

As a 2024 Sound & Video Contractor Best of Show at NAB winner, Planar DirectLight Pro Series joins other industry-leading professional AV technologies spanning LED video walls, cameras, controllers and decoders. This recognition follows Planar DirectLight Pro Series’ 2023 Best of Show award from Sound & Video Contractor at InfoComm, in addition to Commercial Integrator’s 2024 Top New Technology Award.

Planar DirectLight Pro Series also allows for precision and simpler, more easily supported video walls as a result of a high bandwidth (5G) video architecture and 27-inch and 36-inch cabinets. In addition to enabling custom dimensions and resolutions, the solution is compatible with the industry-respected Planar® WallDirector™ Video Controller as well as Brompton’s renowned, specialized controllers and ColorLight’s wide range of controllers. This results in unmatched deployment versatility and flexibility to accommodate a wide array of installation needs such as tilts, 90-degree corners and faceted curves.

Planar DirectLight Pro Series customers also receive comprehensive product coverage from controller to sub-pixel and every component in between with the unmatched Planar® EverCare™ Lifetime Limited Warranty.
