Planar Launches Design Software for Architectural Video Walls at InfoComm 20123 min read
Planar Mosaic Project Designer allows anyone to create and share their own renderings for the award-winning Planar Mosaic architectural video wall solution
Today, at InfoComm 2012, Planar Systems, Inc, a global leader in digital display technology, announced the availability of Planar Mosaic Project Designer™. Developed in conjunction with the Planar® Mosaic™ video wall system, this free, online application lets users create individualized designs for the recently introduced architectural video wall system. Planar Mosaic and the Planar Mosaic Project Designer application will be displayed at InfoComm 2012, Booth #C7536.
Planar Mosaic Project Designer invites users into a virtual environment to place and rotate Planar Mosaic video tiles and preview images or video on the tiles. The result is a custom rendering of a video wall layout. Users can also share design concepts via email or social media, as well as request a price quotation for their designs.
“Our goal with the innovative Planar Mosaic Project Designer is twofold,” said Jennifer Davis, vice president of marketing at Planar Systems. “It allows clients to experiment with Planar Mosaic and envision how this new video wall technology might be used in their space. In addition, our reseller, consultant and designer partners can use the tool anywhere an Internet connection is available to guide their clients through the possibilities of Planar Mosaic and create renderings to use in presentations and discussions. This is the latest example of how Planar is building on nearly 30 years of display innovation, creating new possibilities for video displays in architectural applications and the resources for our customers and partners to make that vision a reality.”
“We’ve had a tremendously positive response from our clients about the Planar Mosaic project,” said Joe Forbes, CTS, senior sales consultant at Sound Stage Inc., a Planar reseller partner and systems integrator, providing Florida-area clients with audio/visual system design since 1983. “I highly recommend the Planar Mosaic Project Designer for any installation project. The design concept we created for a new hospital using this web application provided them a realistic rendering of how the video wall would appear and function before they made their decision.”
