Morrow Technologies Selects Planar Systems to Enhance the JANUS Displays Product Portfolio with Award-Winning Video Walls

Join representatives of both companies this week in Baltimore at HITEC Booth 2406 to see JANUS Displays hospitality content showcased on a Planar Clarity Matrix LCD Video Wall.

Morrow Technologies, the creator of JANUS® Displays and leader in innovative digital signage experiences, announces a business development and reseller partnership with Planar Systems, Inc. this week in Baltimore at HITEC 2012. The JANUS Displays portfolio has expanded to include Planar’s award-winning Clarity™ Matrix LCD Video Wall and Planar® Mosaic™ Architectural Video Walls. The two companies expect to take advantage of the combined experience, the product and service offerings, the synergistic values, and strong industry relationships both bring to the partnership.

“The JANUS Displays product line is uniquely positioned to increase the visibility of Planar video walls in the hospitality market,” says Shannon Vander Giessen, senior business development manager for digital signage, at Planar. “The Morrow team has strong relationships throughout the industry, at both the property and corporate levels. They also have many years of experience developing content for their customers, and a solid understanding of what their customers want from a software standpoint.”

The JANUS Displays team now offers Planar video walls as a part of their digital signage portfolio. Morrow Technologies is a Planar reseller, and can provide digital signage software and content for Planar displays. The two companies are working more closely to expand their reach and cross sell products and services.

“We’ve seen an upsurge in interest for video walls and media walls in hotel lobbies,” says Sharon Morrow, president of Morrow Technologies. “And we want only the best for our customers. Planar has multiple awards for their Planar Mosaic video wall since the product was launched, and the Clarity Matrix video wall we’re showing in our booth this week is quite impressive. Planar shares our value for raising the bar. We are very proud to recommend their products and call them our partner.”

The JANUS Displays creative team develops HD video content for customers’ video walls that includes welcome messages, advertisements, digital art, wayfinding, event listings, weather, announcements, and television programming feeds. All content can be managed and scheduled via the VIZIA™ software powering the JANUS Displays digital signage network.
