Planar Mosaic Video Wall Creates a Dynamic Platform for High-End Apartments

Friday, October 17, 2014


 

In the luxury apartment rental arena in the Chicago area, competition is fierce. One forward-thinking player in the market, M&R Development, is setting itself apart and increasing leasing interest by making pioneering use of video wall technology from Planar in its new 73 East Lake building located in the city's trendy Millennium Park area. Setting a uniquely vibrant tone and identity for the building is a Chicago first: a lobby installation of a Planar Mosaic Architectural Video Wall. Planar Mosaic is a new and dynamic platform with which a real estate entity such as M&R - or any entity for that matter - can differentiate itself, appeal more effectively to its target market, and portray itself as a technological leader.

When is 4K Coming?

Friday, July 11, 2014

The difference between full HD (1080p) and Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) is dramatic. When viewed from a distance or up close, you can see the difference.

Like a tsunami, we expect Ultra HD content to swell dramatically in the later half of this year. 35 mm celluloid are being converted into 4k masters. 4k (or 6k or 8k) cameras are proliferating and video artists are experimenting to create amazing commercial content. Plus, the PC graphics cards are getting more affordable, meaning running a desktop across a 4k display, showing digital photography, or running applications in Ultra HD is here today. Add to this the announcements around true 4k at 60 Hz media players for prices less than $500 and the world of possibilities is opening up fast!

Experiencing the immersion of pixel-free viewing is now possible on your desktop with Planar’s IX-Series or on the wall with Planar UltraRes, Planar EP 4k, and the full range of video wall technologies available from Planar.
