Planar announced Tuesday its entry into the home theater market with a line of home theater projectors and LCD flat-panel displays. The projectors feature Texas Instruments-powered DLP technology with resolutions ranging from 480p to 1080p and contrast ratios from 2,500:1 to 8,000:1. Their LCD HDTV flat-panels come in 37-inch, 42-inch and 47-inch models and all feature 1080p resolution. Pacific Media Associates display analyst Bill Coggshall commented on Planar’s foray into the home theater market, “The company’s strategy to avoid the commoditized space for home theater products and build on its reputation for delivering quality products through specialty sales channels will help Planar build a high-end brand in the specialty home theater market.”
