May 27, 2005 12:52 PM
Lighthouse Technologies, a leading manufacturer and global supplier of state-of-the-art light emitting diode (LED) modular video panels, has reported growing interest in its family of LED screens for digital signage, recognized as one of the fasted growing segments of the LED marketplace.
To address the unique demands of the digital signage applications, Lighthouse continues to launch new LED visual display products, including the P-12ER, P10, and P12, as well as the industry’s first portable, self-contained LED screen, the PopVision, debuting next week at InfoComm in Las Vegas.
The new PopVision screen and Lighthouse 10mm R10 and 6mm R6 panels are being showcased at Booth # 7701 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Based on its proprietary M4 uniformity control technology, Lighthouse 6mm screens deliver high-definition images and reduce low-level noise. The result is extra crystal-clear images in very low brightness, producing strikingly high-resolution to captivate audiences for spectacular close viewing capabilities.
According to iSuppli, a leading analyst firm covering the video display industry, LED video technology has become the preference for indoor and outdoor venues due to its affordability, brightness, durability, and scalability. The worldwide market of LED video displays, valued at $639 million in 2004, is expected to rise to $755 million in 2010. iSuppli also projects the retail-signage market, which occupies the largest share of LED text, graphics, and animation displays, is expected to grow from 41,248 square meters in 2005 to 69,832 square meters in 2010.
"LED is hitting its stride, and Lighthouse has seen strong gains across the board—in total sales, size of installations, and product development,” says Tony Turiello, vice president sales, marketing, and operations in the Americas for Lighthouse. "At the same time, we’ve undertaken initiatives to ensure we remain on the forefront of this LED revolution, including product innovation that is shaping the direction of our industry.”
The latest development from Lighthouse is the PopVision, the industry’s first portable, self-contained high brightness LED video screen. The screen is easily transported in a 5’x2’ flight case featuring a wireless remote and hydraulic system that allows the screen to “pop up” for fast, simple set-up. With its 6mm dot pitch, the PopVision is ideal for events requiring sharp visual displays, as well as mobility for challenging staging and event applications.
