As a next step in its strategic plan to deliver innovative products to specialty display markets, Planar Systems, Inc., today introduced a line of high-performance projectors for the home theater market. The company's new line includes six best-in-class models, ranging from native high-definition 1080p through native 480p resolution, all built on Emmy award-winning DLP technology and boasting contrast ratios up to a staggering 8000:1. Planar's move into the specialty home theater projector market stems from the corporate strategy to increase long-term shareholder value by expanding revenue growth and profitability by penetrating multiple vertical specialty display market segments.
