Planar DirectLight Ultra Series Named 2021 Best of Market and Readers' Choice Award Winner

The new premium line of fine pitch MicroLED video wall displays is honored by AV Technology and rAVe

Dec. 7, 2021 - Planar, a global leader in visualization technology, is the proud recipient of a 2021 Best of Market Award from AV Technology, a leading resource for audio visual (AV) and information technology (IT), as well as a Readers' Choice Award from rAVe, an AV news organization reporting on the proAV, home AV, rental and staging, education and digital signage industries. Delivering the finest MicroLED pixel pitches and always-on, high resolution display experiences for unmatched visual performances, the Planar® DirectLight® Ultra™ Series was voted one of the best products available in the AV industry today for both award programs.

The Planar DirectLight Ultra Series presents several display technology advancements that, in combination, deliver big performance, including models with MicroLEDs, off-board power, proprietary alignment technology and built-in processing.

"From superior brightness, better blacks and higher dynamic range to the finest MicroLED pixel pitches and a power efficient architecture, Planar DirectLight Ultra Series presents an impressive selection of the most cutting-edge LED display features available today," said Steve Seminario, vice president of product marketing at Planar. "As a global leader in fine pitch LED, the Planar DirectLight Ultra Series exemplifies our ongoing dedication to deliver next-level viewing experiences and we're honored to have this premium solution recognized by AV Technology and rAVe."

Offering models in 0.6, 0.7, 0.9 and 1.2 millimeter pixel pitches, the Planar DirectLight Ultra Series is ideal for close viewing distances and high-precision visual images and video. The series features superior color reproduction and high brightness, with most Planar DirectLight Ultra Series models incorporating MicroLEDs that are much smaller than standard LEDs but deliver better black levels and up to three times more brightness while consuming much less power per unit of brightness.

The Planar DirectLight Ultra Series also includes Planar® DirectLight® Ultra Complete™, a line of pre-packaged LED video wall displays available in 108-inch, 136-inch and 163-inch diagonal 4K resolution and 217-inch diagonal 8K resolution display sizes. Designed to reduce the time, complexity and cost of deploying a 4K or 8K MicroLED video wall, Planar DirectLight Ultra Complete video wall displays arrive ready to install with everything customers need packaged into a complete solution.

Planar DirectLight Ultra Series is included in an impressive roster of winners, featuring products designed to support video conferencing, live streaming, audio performance and more.

The 10th annual rAVe Readers' Choice Awards were nominated and chosen by readers in the AV community.
