Irvine – 25 July 2011. Leading LED video screen manufacturer Lighthouse Jumbovision has announced the launch of VideoBlades™ 12, a revolutionary large-scale LED video display technology that straddles the worlds of video and lighting in the entertainment, events and architectural markets.VideoBlades™ 12 are the result of an alliance between Lighthouse and Pix2o, providing a 12.5mm pixel pitch, modular LED video screen that delivers superb image quality both indoors and outdoors, with a literal twist…
Two LED Video formats
VideoBlades™ 12 comes in two formats, SkyRoll™ and GroundRoll™, which can be deployed by rolling up or down from its patented rotating structure, just like a window shade. The modular format allows for the seamless formation of large-scale screens limited in size only by a customer’s needs.
SkyRoll™ deploys down from overhead and is available in 4m, 6m and 8m widths and up to 10m screen heights. GroundRoll™, deploys up from the floor, resulting in the lowest possible rigged weight, and is available in sections 2m to 3m wide, up to 10m high.
Both SkyRoll™ and GroundRoll™ are pre-configured at the factory and shipped to the end user, with only a minimal number of electrical and mechanical connections required to operate the system. Additionally, the VideoBlades™ 12 are supported by an integrated truss sub-structure. Together these attributes have proven to afford maximized truck packing, unprecedented load in/out speeds, minimum handling and minimum wear and tear.
The VideoBlades™ 12 display system is composed of individual display IMs, called the Blades. These can be organized either horizontally or vertically into an LED video display of any size desired. They have the added advantage that the Blades can be used in groups or singly as set lighting fixtures and scenic elements. They are all operated from the same control and distribution system.
VideoBlades™ 12 was selected as the best new video product at LDI 2010.
“This partnership with Lighthouse provides us with the opportunity to greatly accelerate the introduction of the VideoBlade system into the marketplace and allows Pix2o to focus on the continued development of innovative display technologies and applications,” says Pix2oCEO Leo Stearns.
“As with all Lighthouse products, our aim is to provide our customers with solutions that will give them real benefit,” says Lighthouse Managing Director Peter Chan. “VideoBlades™ 12 opens up a multitude of creative opportunities, while reducing operational overheads and inventory requirements.”
