NEC Display Solutions of America, a provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, recently demonstrated its 1.9-mm fine-pitch direct-view LED video wall, the result of its partnership with S[quadrat], at this year's Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas.
NEC Display said its fine-pitch LiFT (for LED intelligent Front Technology) solutions are built with 16:9 modules and come with interchangeable pixel panels, enabling easy upgrade paths. S[quadrat], an LED manufacturer and media system integration specialist, is one of the leading providers of video and information systems, the company said.
Organizations deploying digital signage today require bigger screen sizes, brighter images, higher resolutions, zero bezels and easier serviceability to create unique applications, NEC Display said, and its LED portfolio is built to address those needs.
"Our partnership with S[quadrat] has enabled us to offer our customers a wider range of NEC solutions from which to choose," said Keith Yanke, senior director of product marketing for large screen displays and projectors at NEC Display. "With rapidly changing market dynamics, the NEC LiFT LED product portfolio is poised to give organizations across a broad range of industry sectors the tools to achieve their business requirements."
The LiFT series of direct-view LED video walls comes with magnetically attached pixel cards on the front face for easy maintenance, simple replacement or upgrade to smaller pitches. The pixel cards are completely modular so that a customer who buys a wall large enough for full HD with the 3.8 mm version can upgrade later to a 1.9mm pitch and run 4K content without changing anything else on the wall, according to the announcement.
"We're excited about partnering with NEC Display to bring high-quality, high-reliability LED solutions to the market," said Andreas Brockschmidt, director of sales and marketing at S[quadrat]. "The fine-pitch LED offerings are the right solutions for the changing market landscape of large-screen displays."
The lifetime of the pixel panels on the NEC LiFT solutions is more than 80,000 hours, and the 1.9 mm display includes a two-year warranty, with an option to upgrade to five years, according to the announcement.
