Portland, Oregan-based Planar, a Leyard company and a key player in display and digital signage technology, and Leyard, a visualization products company, have launched the next-generation Clarity Visual Control Station video wall processor, which includes significant improvements that simplify the capture, management and display of video wall content.
The updated Clarity VCS builds on Planar’s cutting-edge video wall processor platform by incorporating powerful, new features that make video wall processing technology more flexible and easy to use. The video wall processor comes with a robust and intuitive new user interface. It offers new network collaboration tools that improve teamwork in control room and corporate settings, while enabling administrators to better manage user identity and access. It also includes more options for delivering high quality video wall content as well as customization tools that automate repetitive tasks.
“The new Clarity VCS brings critical new functionality and productivity to both advanced and conventional users,” says Steve Seminario, vice-president of global product marketing at Planar. “Tightly integrated with our award-winning Planar and Leyard video wall displays, Clarity VCS allows more customers to turn their video walls into complete visual systems that solve business problems, all at a competitive price point.”
Clarity VCS is an all-in-one hardware and software solution that simplifies the management of Planar and Leyard’s market-leading video walls used for control room, digital signage and collaborative applications. The processor can control up to 64 high resolution video wall displays – capturing content from multiple sources and displaying different images and video on or across individual displays within an LED or LCD video wall.
Using the VCS Control Software, users can position and resize individual sources anywhere on the video wall or instantly switch to one of many preset layouts. And with the newest version of Clarity VCS, users can come up to speed more quickly, collaborate more effectively, and improve the security of their content.
The next-generation Clarity VCS was designed to improve the usefulness of Planar and Leyard video wall solutions including the award-winning Clarity Matrix LCD Video Wall System, Planar DirectLight LED Video Wall System, Leyard TVH Series and Leyard TW Series LED video walls.
The new Clarity VCS is launching with the Clarity VCS Calculator, a free, online tool that makes it quick and easy for customers to design their Clarity VCS configuration. By allowing customers to generate technical specifications and processor drawings in advance of their purchase, the Clarity VCS Calculator ensures the success of every project by taking the guess work out of video wall planning and helps speed up the sales process for resellers and integrators. The Clarity VCS Calculator can be used with a range of devices including PC’s, tablets and smartphones and requires no software installation or registration.
The next-generation Clarity VCS video wall processor is available through Planar and Leyard’s global network of authorized resellers.
