Leyard and Planar, global leaders in visualization products, announced the third generation Clarity Matrix LCD Video Wall System, which combines the industry’s thinnest profile ultra-narrow bezel LCD with industry-leading improvements to video processing, installation, management and off-board electronics.

The new Clarity Matrix G3 LCD Video Wall System advances nearly every aspect of the unique Clarity Matrix architecture, building on the accomplishments of the award-winning family of LCD video wall solutions. It features a new, off-board video controller that offers unrivalled video processing capabilities built into the product. It includes new Leyard WallDirector Software to further simplify video wall installation, monitoring and management. It also offers unsurpassed fault tolerance and energy efficiency through an improved off-board electronics and power supply architecture.

Clarity Matrix G3 takes built-in video wall processing to a new level with the off-board Clarity Matrix G3 Video Controller, becoming the first LCD video wall solution on the market to embed advanced video processing directly into the product.

The new Video Controller offers built-in video wall scaling for a single source input beyond 6K resolution (5760×3240) with Planar Big Picture Plus video wall processing, providing unsurpassed flexibility without the need for an external video processor or audio/video switch. Customers can take multiple 4K @ 60Hz signals and scale them across an entire video wall or separate sections within a video wall. They can also display content from a higher number of independent sources, superimpose a smaller image over a larger one with Picture-in-Picture (PiP) and incorporate up to four different image sources within a single display with 4K quadview.

Clarity Matrix G3 supports the latest 4K connectivity standards, including both HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2, offering customers flexibility as they build their video infrastructure.

Clarity Matrix G3 also comes standard with intuitive, touch-friendly Leyard WallDirector software that simplifies video wall set-up, configuration, operation and monitoring. The powerful, web-based interface automatically identifies video wall components such as the display configuration, power supply quantities and source inputs, significantly reducing the time it takes to configure a complex video wall. It offers the ability to drag-and-drop sources onto the video wall canvas and easily manipulate their size and position. Presets can recall video wall windowing layouts, making it easy to quickly configure content on a video wall.

Clarity Matrix G3 builds on the superior performance and mission-critical reliability of previous versions, delivering on the product line’s reputation as the best-in-class LCD video wall solution. As with Clarity Matrix G2, it offers a tiled bezel width as small as 1.7 millimeters for near seamless installations. It also includes standard and high brightness 46-inch and 55-inch models along with options for protected Planar ERO (Extended Ruggedness and Optics) glass, fiber video extensions, passive 3D and interactive multi-touch.

Clarity Matrix G3 also features the Planar EasyAxis Mounting System, which continues to deliver the industry’s thinnest installed depth and includes built-in service access and micro adjustments for simplified video wall installation and servicing.
