The Planar HB Series is available in 75-inch and 86-inch sizes featuring 4K resolution and 350-nit brightness, ensuring that everyone in the room can clearly see even the most detailed on-screen content. The series is also compatible with industry-leading collaboration solutions, supports third-party devices and includes an integrated Android® operating system complete with whiteboard software to create a one-stop collaboration solution for users.

“Increasingly, customers are looking for ease, efficiency and performance around the primary meeting room display applications, including annotation, screen sharing and video communication,” said Steve Seminario, vice president of product development at Planar. “The Planar HB Series was designed to squarely meet these needs with leading software compatibility, built-in tools and highly responsive touch.”

The Planar HB Series offers wireless connectivity to support both in-room and remote collaboration and the display’s 20-point projected capacitive touch helps ensure effective interactive experiences for users. Planar HB Series’ sensor is directly integrated into the LCD panel, reducing weight and thickness compared to traditional glass overlay construction. Planar is one of the first companies in the industry to achieve this construction for a 75-inch LCD display.

With Planar HB Series, files can be easily imported to allow users to quickly annotate over maps, web page screen shots, reports and more. For added flexibility, all Planar HB Series displays come standard with expansion slots that support Intel’s Open Pluggable Specification (OPS), making them compatible with a variety of OPS devices. Also, the series’ compatibility with unified communication platforms allows users to add a webcam, audio system and microphone of their choosing to sync with colleagues across the globe as if they are in the very same room.

“It’s imperative that T1V’s ThinkHub collaboration software runs on high-performance display technology that optimizes the meeting experience,” says Adam Loritsch, executive vice president of sales and marketing at T1V. “The Planar HB Series prioritizes pinpoint accuracy and precision to ensure a seamless experience for blended teams as they connect in hybrid meeting spaces that combine in-room and remote participants. It’s the perfect pairing for ThinkHub and our mission to bring teams together.”

The Planar HB Series is currently available and shipping through Planar’s global network of authorized resellers. For more information visit or view a product demonstration video.
