University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, Key Biscayne, FL

Longtime client Mike Anderson, Director of Information Technology at the University of Miami had already worked on several projects with the Midtown Video team when he contacted Midtown’s Account Executive, Chari Hill inquiring about Planar’s Clarity Matrix MultiTouch video wall system. He thought the School of Marine and Atmospheric Science of the University of Miami on Key Biscayne would benefit from Google Maps and all of the other amazing features available in this large format, interactive solution.

Hill contacted Planar asking for an evaluation unit and was told that although none existed in the local market, there was a system in place at Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando. Hill learned that they had a Clarity Matrix video wall in a sports bar, but not with the touch feature. Anderson and Hill both spoke with Tim Soukup, Broadcast Engineer/Video Specialist at Walt Disney World who was more than happy to sing the praises about the beauty and ease of his Clarity Matrix video wall.

 After learning that the Clarity Matrix is an ultra-thin bezel LCD media wall system that delivers outstanding visual performance Anderson decided to go ahead with the installation and the results are remarkable. The bright picture and quality image from the video wall is simply stunning. Originally designed as a 3×2 video wall, the school’s finished product is a 3×3 wall using a Planar Clarity Matrix LX with an ERO 46 inch LCD. The high impact interactive display is ideal for public spaces or collaborative environments allowing for Multi-user, multi-touch, up to 32 touch points. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.
