When it comes to selecting a display for a video wall, the requirements are usually simple: great clarity, high brightness, and wide viewing angles, but weight can often be one of the most critical considerations when choosing a display.

Weight can determine where a video wall can be installed and the installation requirements. The latter may determine how complex and expensive the installation will be.

This is exactly why Planar designed the CarbonLight displays and why their patented carbon fiber construction has spread to other product lines.

Not every display is designed to be a permanent installation (think temporary museum exhibits or traveling acts). Sometimes, displays need to be broken down weekly and reinstalled at a new location, often requiring special (and expensive) rigging to satisfy venue operators and government regulations.

CarbonLight displays can be over 40% lighter than their non carbon fiber counterparts. When scaled up, these are substantial weight savings. These weight savings make the CarbonLight series versatile and perfect for use in a variety of settings including movie sets, outdoor video walls, or temporary events.
