The honors were awarded to the highlight of the Leyard and Planar booth, an enormous 8K Leyard® TW Series LED video wall.

At a distance of 9 to12 feet from the video wall, the pixels are indiscernible.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by many of the industry’s independent leading experts at NAB 2016,” said Jennifer Davis, chief marketing officer at Leyard. “We’ve received outstanding feedback at this year’s event for the breathtaking Leyard 8K video wall as just one example of our innovative display solutions.
