Planar’s new Clarity™ Matrix HX60 and PS-Series™ PS4670 meet the growing demand for dynamic digital signage in parts of retail stores, lobbies, airports and public spaces where ambient light makes traditional digital signage unreadable or washed out. “These high-brightness models enable digital video technology to thrive in the sunlit store front windows and other prime locations for attracting and engaging customers,” said Jennifer Davis, vice president of marketing for Planar Systems. “These additions to the Clarity Matrix LCD video wall line and PS-Series line demonstrate Planar’s ability to deliver both high quality and affordable ways to meet our customers evolving digital signage needs.”
