Planar Systems, Inc.(Portland, Ore.) was recently recognized with four awards from leading AV and digital signage publications.
The Planar® DirectLight™ LED Video Wall System was voted “Best Digital Signage Hardware” at InfoComm 2015 by Commercial Integrator magazine. The Commercial Integrator “BEST 2015 Awards” highlight the most outstanding new products, solutions, and services that are expected to impact the commercial integration industry in 2015.
The Planar DirectLight LED Video Wall System also received “Best of Show 2015” awards from three publications: AV Technology, Digital Signage Magazine, and Sound & Video Contractor. The awards were announced at InfoComm 2015 in Orlando, where the Planar DirectLight LED Video Wall System was on display.
“It is an honor to be selected for these awards from the industry,” says Jennifer Davis, Planar's vice president of marketing and product strategy. “This exciting new video wall technology from Planar has received positive feedback from customers and integrators for its visual performance in mission-critical 24x7 environments—and this recognition is a testament to that excellence.”
