Less than two months after making its debut at the regional SMPTE conference in Atlanta, the NanoLumens Studio Pro Series broadcast LED displays have spread around the world, the company said in a recent announcement. NanoLumens Studio Pro displays are already operational in London, Atlanta and Beijing, with more on the way.
The Studio Pro Series features a 6-inch thickness, 100,000-hour lifespan, 1,000 nit brightness, 4K camera compatibility, off-axis viewing performance, lightweight, low-energy consumption, zero heat and zero noise operation, plus the ability to create a display of any shape, size and curvature, NanoLumens Executive Vice President of Business Development Karen Robinson said in the announcement.
Thanks to the NanoLumens' patented Moiré Elimination Technology, the Studio Pro Series can be used in every type of broadcast environment, the company said. Simple maintenance and extreme longevity eliminate the need for expensive bulb replacements and provide peace of mind that the display will always work when it needs to. The added benefit of producing no sound or heat helps to reduce headaches and even reduce cooling costs in the studio.
Because every Studio Pro display is only six inches deep regardless of screen area, they also save floor space where a projection system could require 10 feet or more to produce such a large image. NanoLumens also features the ability to custom design the display to any size, shape and curvature.
The white balance on Studio Pro displays is adjusted using a SMPTE chart and a vector scope to produce a white-balanced image. The series also features fully adjustable brightness up to 1,000 nits and dynamic contrast with a matte finish that minimizes glare from studio lighting. The series' off-axis viewing also provides broadcasters with the freedom to film from up to 170 degrees horizontal and 160 degrees vertical, the company said.
The Studio Pro Series accepts input from a variety of devices and systems with no need for special software, hardware or specialized personnel to display content. Additionally, NanoLumens has tested and certified several 4K cameras for use with the Studio Pro line including Sony and Canon models.
