InfoComm 2017 showcase: the newest in LED

The InfoComm 2017 exhibit took place June 14-16 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Here is our brief summary of the latest in LED video display and processing technologies that were showcased there.

Absen introduced the Xv-Series, which is a mobile indoor/outdoor LED solution designed for the needs of events business. According to Absen, the new displays feature:

  • quick-to-swap power/data core
  • front & rear serviceability
  • integrated curving side locks for concave curves with up to 5° angle
  • clear picture with higher grayscale at a lower brightness level
  • flicker-free 3840Hz refresh rate

The Xv-Series comes in three-pixel pitch options: the 2.6mm indoor, the 3.9mm indoor & outdoor in a single solution, and the 5.2mm with a 160°/140° viewing angle and a brightness of 5,000 nits.

Barco presented their new X-series LED displays in 1.2, 1.5, 2.5 and 4mm pixel pitch offering. The displays have been showcased within a giant LED video wall of 6.1 million pixels powered by the company’s proprietary Infinipix processing. Barco claims the system provides a smooth image with no tearing issues and ensures redundant data paths for high fail-safety.

D3 revealed their newest product AEPIMS Pro that combines a display processor, a video processor, a scaler, a switcher, and a media server in a single hardware and software suite. The system provides for delivering content to large-scale, super high resolution LED video walls, allows for running files uncompressed, supports real-time scaling and compositing and much more. Capable of controlling up to a hundred million pixels on a 16k by 16k canvass AEPIMS is probably one of the most powerful servers in its class, said Jason Barak, Executive Vice President of D3 LED.

Leyard and Planar showcased their latest display innovations, including seamless touch-enabled LED video wall and a 0.7-millimeter ultra-fine pitch LED display. The multi-touch technology was showcased within a 196-inch (4.9m) Diagonal LED solution. Currently available for 0.9mm and 1.2mm pixel pitches it features the company’s proprietary PLTS (Pliable LED Touch Surface) technology. According to Leyard, it brings interactivity to LED without disadvantages of glass sheets that trap heat and cause optical errors.

LG Electronics introduced their new Transparent LED Film Display, which is a unique digital signage solution just 0.8mm thin. Thanks to its self-adhesive transparent film the display can be stuck on any existing glass surface making it easy to install. The display features 30mm pixel pitch and comes in 480x480mm panels each containing 256 LED pixels.

Samsung Electronics showcased their latest to the SMART Signage lineup, e.g. the quantum dot-powered HDR10+ QLED signage and fine pixel pitch IF Series LED signage. The QLED displays come in 55” and 65” models and are managed by the company’s Tizen 3.0 signage platform, which is an upgrade from previous 2.4 version.

The IF Series LED displays are available in 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5mm pixel pitch models and incorporate a host of customized features, including maximized contrast, removal of glare and visual distortion and twice as high maximum brightness compared to conventional LED.

SiliconCore debuted their latest technology innovation, the new LED driver chip Z.A.C.H. which stands for Z (Impedance) Adjustment for Color Homogeneity. According to SCT, the driver chip provides accurate color reproduction in the areas of low brightness by detecting impedance variations of each LED and applying for adjustment compensation.
