Planar Systems Wins Contract with Thomson’s PRN to Deploy Digital Displays : Installations at Some of PRN’s Largest Retail Networks Planned Over Next Two Years

Ore. (EMWNews) August 7, 2008 —

Planar Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:PLNR), a worldwide leader in specialty

display systems, today announced it has been awarded a digital display

contract by the leading provider of television networks at retail,

Thomsons Premier Retail Networks, Inc. (PRN).

In alignment with Planar’s corporate strategy to provide innovative

display solutions for retail applications, PRN chose Planar for its

unique ability to provide a myriad of specialty displays that meet the

exact requirements of PRN. Under the agreement, Planar will provide

customized small format touch-screen displays and customized

large-format displays.

We wanted to work with a manufacturer who could combine the quality assurance systems and capabilities of a large vendor with the flexibility and speed of a smaller supplier. The Display System is a critical component in the PRN solution and we’ve found Planar to be a nimble and valuable partner.

Serving PRNs multiple display categories as

part of its retail media network systems solution, Planar display

solutions will now be used in a large percentage of the in-store

networks operated by PRN. PRN works with retailers, content partners and

advertisers to create in-store programming that engages, informs and

motivates consumers where they shop. PRNs

programming alliances include major television networks and other media

properties, as well as movie studios, record labels and magazine and

newspaper publishers. PRNs retailer customers

include ACME, Albertsons, Best Buy, Carrefour, Circuit City, Costco,

Jewel-Osco, Pathmark, Sams Club, Shaws

and Star Market, ShopRite and Walmart Stores.

PRN selected Planar because of its years of

proven display innovation and because it has been extremely responsive

to our schedule requirements, said Scott

Francis, Chief Technology Officer for PRN. We

wanted to work with a manufacturer who could combine the quality

assurance systems and capabilities of a large vendor with the

flexibility and speed of a smaller supplier. The Display System is a

critical component in the PRN solution and we’ve found Planar to be a

nimble and valuable partner.”

technologies and applications served by its four business units

(commercial, industrial, home theater and control room & digital

signage), Planar offers display solutions that fit the most demanding

applications, ranging from ruggedized industrial products found in

Doug Barnes, general manager and vice president of Planar’s industrial

business unit. We have assembled the right

engineering expertise and platform of products to serve the demanding

needs of customers like PRN and their retail partners. Our ability to

provide customized display solutions makes us ideally suited for
