It can be used in both portrait and landscape modes, can be table mounted, ceiling mounted, or built into custom fixtures using the straight flush-mount design. It can also be tiled to create large, eye-catching video wall arrays.

As Planar continue in their development, we will see a range of sizes and thinner bezel where the electronics are housed enabling even more interesting mosaic and video wall installations.
What is the potential future competition/threats from competing products/technology?
These products will only be compared with similar types of solutions which use projected content onto surfaces. This being so the OLED technology has great benefits including scalability, low power usage, strength and unrestricted viewing angles. Current transparent displays all require backlight components to make them work, these are stand alone and really powerful in their own right.
