Planar Expands Rental and Staging Portfolio with Planar VS Series LED Displays

New LED product line combines a versatile design with fast assembly, transport and service

Planar, global leaders in visualization products, today announced the launch of the Planar® VS Series, a full-featured series of rental and staging LED video wall displays built for easy assembly and transport, adaptability to diverse environments and fast serviceability. The new product line will be on display at Live Design International (LDI) 2019.

Offered in 2.5, 3.9 and 4.8 millimeter pixel pitches, the new Planar VS Series is aimed at rental and staging professionals who assemble video walls for events, concerts and mobile studio backdrops. The LED displays have been built from the ground up to address the real-world requirements and feedback from customers who desire a lightweight, simple design that is quick to assemble, teardown and transport—but also rugged enough to withstand wear and tear.

"The Planar VS Series balances the needs and desires of rental industry professionals with the innovative ideas of Planar's research and development team," said Chris Prosio, general manager of Rental & Staging at Planar. "We believe this purpose-driven design will save time, while adding impact and excitement to almost any event."

The Planar VS Series rounds out Planar's rental and staging portfolio with a complete set of LED display solutions designed to meet every need. It joins the Planar® CarbonLight™ LED Displays, a comprehensive line of lightweight, versatile and easy-to-deploy LED displays that includes a wide range of models for eye-catching, creative installations. It also complements the Planar® VVR Series, a family of indoor and outdoor LED displays that deliver fast assembly and easy access to electronics. Planar will present their most extensive set of solutions for the rental and staging industry at LDI 2019.

Fast Assembly and Tear Down

At less than 62 pounds (28 kilograms) per square meter, the Planar VS Series is a lightweight yet rugged solution designed to meet the needs of today's fast-paced rental and staging industry.

The series supports single-person installations with magnetic points that hold the LED cabinet in place as it is being installed, along with integrated ratcheting cabinet locks to easily secure cabinets together. It also comes with integrated corner protection and an anti-collision bottom edge to prevent damage as cabinets are moved around.

Versatile Design and Easy Serviceability

The Planar VS Series offers a flexible design that can be adapted to a wide variety of rental and staging environments. The displays can be hung or stacked to form video walls of nearly any size. In addition, curved designs can be achieved at different angles.

The Planar VS Series supports universal modules for stress-free serviceability. The displays also include swappable power supplies that can easily be removed and replaced.

All of Planar's products, including the Planar VS Series, are backed by the company's extensive global presence, with locations in North America, Europe, Middle East, Latin America and Asia.

The Planar VS Series will begin shipping in the first quarter of 2020 through Planar's worldwide network of authorized resellers. Planar will showcase the Planar VS Series, along with other industry-leading LED display solutions designed for rental and staging at LDI 2019 in Las Vegas from November 22 - 24 in Booth #2145.
