Planar DirectLight Pro Series Celebrates 2024 Innovative Product Award

Sound & Video Contractor readers name the fine pixel pitch LED video wall platform a winner, paying tribute to the solution’s designers and engineers

May 14, 2024 - Planar announced that the company was honored with Sound & Video Contractor’s 2024 Innovative Product Award. Readers voted the premium Planar® DirectLight® Pro Series fine pixel pitch LED video wall a winner, celebrating the designers and engineers behind the product.

The Planar DirectLight Pro Series leverages key advantages of Planar’s highest-selling LED platforms, while raising the bar on versatility and lifetime value. In addition to delivering outstanding image performance with 1,000-nit brightness in constant operation and models in 0.9, 1.2, 1.5 and 1.8 millimeter pixel pitches, the solution offers 27-inch and 36-inch cabinets, an advanced high-bandwidth (5G) video architecture and several controller options to support a wider array of use cases.

Sound & Video Contractor’s 13th annual reader-voted program acknowledged electronic and mechanical innovations in ProAV.

“The Planar DirectLight Pro Series was designed with a new kind of deployment versatility in mind, allowing customers to tailor the solution to various indoor, fixed application needs,” said Robert Detwiler, senior director of product management and training at Planar. “This flexibility, combined with the latest LED improvements delivering exceptional image detail, is giving way to truly remarkable, first-of-its-kind installations. We’re pleased this innovative product has been recognized by Sound & Video Contractor’s readers.”

Planar DirectLight Pro Series customers benefit from simpler, more easily supported video walls as well as flexibility to accommodate installations requiring front tilts, 90-degree corners and faceted curves. In addition to offering 109-inch, 137-inch, 164-inch, 198-inch and 219-inch Planar® Complete™ display configurations, the state-of-the-art solution is designed to be deployed efficiently in custom video wall dimensions and resolutions.

With front service, less cables and fewer components needed, the solution offers streamlined installation and maintenance, and reduces deployment complexity. For high-traffic and interactive areas, the solution is available with Planar® ERO-LED™ (Extended Ruggedness and Optics™) protective coating and supports 32-point touch.

This year’s selection marks multiple Innovative Product Award wins for the industry-leader. Sound & Video Contractor readers most recently voted Planar a winner in 2023 and 2022 for the Planar® Venue™ Pro VX Series and Planar® DirectLight® Ultra™ Series.

Planar DirectLight Pro Series includes the unrivaled Planar® EverCare™ Lifetime Limited Warranty, offering customers increased lifetime value and peace of mind with comprehensive product coverage from controller to sub-pixel and every component in between. Plus, with Planar DirectLight Pro Series comes support for the industry-respected Planar® WallDirector™ Video Controller, ColorLight’s wide range of controllers and Brompton’s renowned, specialized controllers.
