LAS VEGAS -- February 12, 2014

Planar Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: PLNR), a global leader in display and digital
signage technology, today announced it has added two new sizes to its Planar®
Simplicity™ Series line of edge-lit LED displays, offering customers a broad
range of choices for deploying simple, sleek and affordable digital signage
displays.

The complete Planar Simplicity Series, from 32” to 55”, will be on display at
the Digital Signage Expo 2014, February 12-13, in Planar’s booth (#405) at the
Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.

With the addition of the 46” and 55” models, customers now have four sizes
from which to choose, making the Planar Simplicity Series a highly versatile
solution for a wide variety of commercial applications including retail
stores, restaurants, corporate meeting rooms, fitness centers and museums. The
Planar Simplicity Series now features four sizes, 32” and 42”, introduced in
Fall 2013, and 46” and 55” announced today.

“Planar Simplicity Series displays are a sleek, commercial-quality digital
signage display solution that’s both economical and easy to deploy, making it
the perfect canvas for commercial content,” said Becky Connors, product
marketing manager at Planar Systems. “And with the availability of the 46” and
55” sizes, we’ve now expanded the series, offering our customers a broad range
of choices for their digital signage needs.”

The Planar Simplicity Series redefines simple signage, both in terms of
functionality and design. With built-in media playing, the cost and complexity
of installing third-party media players is eliminated. Planar Simplicity
Series displays are easy to install and allow users to create and display
content using tools they already have—including videos, photography from cell
phone cameras, stock photos and music libraries.

From a single-display installation to a multi-display network, the Planar
Simplicity Series was designed to bring simplicity to nearly every digital
signage project. The displays are highly versatile, supporting playback of a
wide variety of media formats. They also come with a full array of inputs and
can be controlled remotely through LAN or RS-232.

In terms of design, the displays feature an elegant, slim profile—less than
1.7” deep— blending naturally into any environment and achieving compliance
with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for protruding
objects in public spaces. In addition, the bezels contain no distracting
logos, keeping the focus on the content itself.

With prices starting at $595, the Planar Simplicity Series extends the
benefits of digital signage to a wider range of organizations, including those
with limited budgets. Moreover, the displays use LED backlight technology
allowing the displays to operate at industry-low levels of power consumption,
making them highly energy efficient.

Planar Simplicity Series displays are available through Planar’s network of
authorized resellers. Visit Planar’s You Tube channel to watch a video about
