eyevis, the German videowall manufacturer and Unilumin, a Chinese manufacturer of LED displays, have announced a strategic partnership, just ahead of ISE 2016.

"With our strategic partnership for development and distribution, we supplement eyevis’ vast expertise with Unilumins high-quality manufacturing of LED modules. This is a win-win situation for everyone, in particular though for our customers," Hartmut Weinreich, eyevis’ product manager for LED solutions, said on the deal.

eyevis will support the partnership with its knowledge and experience and knowhow to meet special requirements, in particular in the control room and the area of broadcast. Unilumin will contribute its large manufacturing capacity to the partnership.

As early as at ISE, the strategic partnership will manifest itself in a new product line, eyevis ePanels 'powered by Unilumin', which was jointly launched by the development teams of both companies. The ePanels premium product, consisting of modules with a pixel pitch of just 0.9 mm, will celebrate its world premiere at ISE and will be presented in a 3.7 m by 2.1 m LED wall with 4K resolution. All ePanels are designed to be used indoors, where high resolution video walls with small pixel pitch are in high demand. The ePanel portfolio comprises models with different, yet always very small pixel pitches of 0.9 mm, 1.2 mm, 1.5 mm and 1.9 mm, which can be selected in line with the respective case of application.

The “powered by Unilumin” products are manufactured exclusively for eyevis and distributed via its own retailer network. eyevis are responsible for Customer Care as well as the technical implementation of display control and signal processing whereas its Chinese partner produces the hardware.
