Jasco has announced the availability of the Planar LookThru Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) transparent display off the back of its recent distribution partnership with manufacturer, Leyard.

The Planar LookThru OLED transparent display uses OLED technology to eliminate the need for a backlight or enclosure, allowing users to view video content, digital images and text on a virtually frameless glass display with 45% light transmissivity. Designers are empowered to overlay digital content onto real objects or scenes positioned behind the glass.

The 55-inch Planar LookThru OLED transparent display is self-emissive with brilliant picture quality, exceptional contrast and wide viewing angles.  It is ideal for a broad range of applications including retail, corporate and museum settings, or integrated into any environment in which glass is used including room dividers and conference halls.

This display is available in two mechanical configurations – a model for table-top or ceiling-mounted installations as well as a model for flush-mounted installations and can be used in both portrait and landscape mode or tiled to create large, eye-catching video wall arrangements.

With optional touch screen interactivity that offers 32 simultaneous touch points, a brilliant picture quality in a large viewing size, the Planar LookThru OLED transparent display features proprietary Extended Ruggedness and Optics (ERO) technology to deliver a surface that is highly durable to withstand the rigours of high-traffic environments and interaction. The display also comes with standard digital inputs including HDMI and DisplayPort, and can be fully controlled by using RS-232, LAN, Crestron and other control systems.

It is compatible with sources ranging from PCs and players to consumer video devices that rely on High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) compliance.
