"While that may not roll right off the tongue, it’s a tremendous breakthrough," the company writes. "Prior to the launch of the Clarity Matrix Touch on June 15th at InfoComm 2011 in Orlando, Florida, multi-panel touch screens had to be cobbled together from different vendors with various components. It was a situation that would challenge the inestimable Dr. Frankenstein’s skills of stitching parts together."
Below is a demo video of the Clarity Matrix Touch from the showroom floor at InfoComm 2011.
The 2x2 panel video wall on display also comes in a 2x3 and 3x3 format, so it can cover a pretty large area. Because the video wall is modular, it makes servicing a lot easier -- you would just have to repair one panel on the wall, rather than the whole massive wall as a whole.
Three things make this video wall unique:
- its ultra-thin profile, perfect for interactive displays in public spaces and collaborative environments
- Planar's ERO (Extended Ruggedness and Optics) glass, which makes the LCD screens extra durable
- use of SMART Technologies' DViT (Digital Vision Touch) technology, which allows users to use the wall like a whiteboard and interact with content using finger touches and touch gestures.
Looks pretty cool. It will be interesting to try it out in person some time.
