Planar Unveils New Flat Panels, Projectors
Planar is now shipping three new 1080p, full HD LCD home theater displays and three new 1080p projectors, the company announced at CEDIA Expo.
The 37-inch PD370 ($2,299), 42-inch PD420 ($2,999), t47-inch PD 470 ($3,999) and 52-inch PD520 ($6,999), are aimed at the high-end installation market and are manufactured without a tuner card or speakers, giving dealers the opportunity to improve margins by adding high-quality audio and tuner cards, said Brian Carskadon, Planar’s manager of product market.
“We do that because installers say, ‘Don’t put in anything that doesn’t add value,’” he said. “Our philosophy is not to offer a flat panel or the sake of offering a flat panel.”
