Beaverton, Ore. Planar Systems, Inc. has added an exceptionally bright, scratch-resistant model to its open-frame kiosk display line. The LB1500RTC with a
capacitive touch screen technology is aimed at retail, rail information and hospitality industries.
Featuring a brightness almost twice that of standard displays at 550 cd/m2, Planar's LB1500RTC enables kiosk integrators and OEMs to install systems almost anywhere. In addition, the company said the touch-screen LCD improves end-user experience in high-traffic, high-visibility areas regardless of environmental conditions.
The 15-inch 3M ClearTek II display with USB interface is said to provide
improved touch accuracy, superior optical performance and improved surface wear against scratching, making it suitable for interactive point-of-purchase kiosks in restaurants, public transportation signage, as well as point-of-information or advertising displays inside trains or buses.
The LB1500RTC can be easily integrated into a variety of kiosk enclosures and is compatible with mounting options that use the 75-mm VESA standard. The display is RoHS compliant.
Availability: The LB1500RTC is available through Planar's U.S., European and Asian channel partners.
