The addition of touch technology to the Planar UltraRes Series line of 4K
displays expands Planar Systems’ leadership in the ultra-high definition
category by combining a multi-touch experience with stunning 4K image clarity.
It offers a best-in-class solution for professionals who seek to collaborate
or annotate using a large viewing area, the highest image resolution and
enterprise-level features. It is also ideal for public display applications
such as way-finding, product catalogs and any interactive digital signage
designed to promote customer engagement.

Already, Planar Systems offers the most comprehensive line of professional
touch displays in the industry ranging from 15-inch diagonal desktop, point of
sale and kiosk displays all the way up to 300-inch diagonal multi-touch video
wall displays. The Planar UltraRes Touch extends this offering further by
providing a large-size multi-touch solution with unparalleled pixel density in
Planar’s ultra HD (3840x2160) resolution display line.

“Touch integration has been the number one customer request since we
introduced the Planar UltraRes Series of 84-inch ultra HD displays,” said
Steve Seminario, senior director of product marketing for Planar Systems. “By
utilizing Planar’s exclusive ERO™ protective glass surface and proven
multi-touch technology, we’re happy to respond with a world-class
implementation that is Planar-built and Planar-supported.”

A Multi-Touch Experience with Four Times the Resolution

Planar UltraRes Touch offers the following benefits:

  *A multi-touch, multi-user experience: Planar UltraRes Touch offers six
    simultaneous touch points, making it easy for multiple users to
    collaborate and interact at the same time. The display recognizes the full
    range of common touch gestures including tapping, scrolling, pinching and
    rotating. The large 84” size lends itself to multiple users.
  *4K accuracy: With a native 4K resolution of 3840x2160, Planar UltraRes
    Touch provides four times the resolution of a full HD display for amazing
    clarity. Touch brings viewers closer to the display and Planar UltraRes
    Touch delivers razor sharp clarity even at these close viewing distances.
  *Landscape and portrait orientations: Planar UltraRes Touch supports both
    landscape and portrait orientations, providing the flexibility needed for
    a wide range of applications, all at a display size which mimics the human
    scale.
  *High reliability: Planar builds touch displays at the factory and stands
    behind the product with Planar warranties. Planar UltraRes Touch comes
    standard with fail-over power supplies, a quiet, fanless design and a
    unique service access mode enabled by the Planar Profile™ Mounting System.
    The result is a highly dependable product with the level of support
    customers need.
  *Advanced design and function: Planar UltraRes Touch provides  a sleek
    design for both function and style. It has an attractive, logo-free metal
    bezel and a wide range of digital connectivity options. Using the Planar
    Profile mount, it installs less than 4 inches from the wall, making it
    compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
