|Planar Video Wall Helps Students at the University of Nevada Las Vegas Get into Shape|
PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Planar Systems, Inc., a global leader in display and digital signage technology, today announced that the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) has installed a Clarity® Matrix™ LCD Video Wall System for a large video wall installation that assists to motivate students at the university’s fitness center to get into shape as they watch programs on a giant video wall.
The installation is composed of 12 Clarity Matrix LCD video wall displays that form a six-wide by two-high (6x2) video wall above the first-floor cardio area of the UNLV Student Recreation and Wellness Center. Multiple displays serve up an almost endless stream of sports, news and other television programming, engaging students and keeping them motivated as they work out using elliptical machines, treadmills and other sports equipment.
“To even those most dedicated to getting fit, a treadmill session can get boring quickly,” said Erin Farrar, UNLV’s Director of Campus Recreation Services. “So having the ability to watch a game or even a cooking show, especially on a big screen, makes the time fly by and keeps hundreds of students motivated to work out when they otherwise might not be. We love these displays as much the students do, because they make a statement about our commitment to advanced technology and bringing content and information to viewers on the very latest digital media platforms.”
Smartly Designed and Easy to Maintain
UNLV chose a Clarity Matrix LCD video wall from Planar for several reasons including its smart design, ease of maintenance and outstanding visual performance:
Built for a Wide Range of Uses
The UNLV video wall joins hundreds of Clarity Matrix LCD video wall installations across a broad range of industries. “The UNLV installation demonstrates why so many organizations are implementing Clarity Matrix video walls in innovative ways,” said Jennifer Davis, vice president of marketing and product strategy for Planar Systems. “With its outstanding image quality, simplified installation and maintenance, and 24x7 mission-critical reliability, Clarity Matrix is the go-to solution for today’s LCD video walls, whether they are used for advertising, data visualization, or helping college students attain their fitness goals.”
