While Planar was all about snazzy projectors and enviable plasmas at CEDIA
, the firm is branching out a bit with its latest displays. The transparent and segment electroluminescent
(TASEL) displays join the firm's family of EL displays and offer up the "added benefits of transparency and the ability to be cut or shaped." The units can also be transparent or mirrored, boast a viewing angle of 179-degrees, and feature "instant on" response times of under one-millisecond. Currently, only samples of Planar's TASEL displays are available, but hopefully these things will be going commercial real soon.
