PSCo gets flexi LED with NanoLumens deal
The NanoLumens flexible LED display is available in the UK and Ireland following a distribution deal with big screen and videowall specialist, PSCo. USA based NanoLumens has currently released a 112” display but points out the technology is scalable and can be built to custom specifications. The current product weighs 41kg, has a 6mm pixel pitch and can be curved up to 43°.
InAVate magazine was treated to sneak preview of the new product at PSCo’s Reading, UK office ahead of the distribution announcement. Stuart Holmes, managing director of the distribution and rental company, said he had kept an eye on the product’s development over the last 18 months and was delighted to have secured the distribution agreement. He described NanoLumens as “one of the most exciting technologies I have seen for years”.
Holmes added that PSCo would assist NanoLumens with the launch of the product throughout Europe and will have rental models available in the UAE through its Dubai office.
John Wilson, president of Nanolumens, said he was thrilled to be working with PSCo. “I admire their technical ability and understanding of the product,” he said. “I’m impressed with their plans for the future and their ideas of how to role the product out. This is a fun partnership and I look forward to working with the company as we introduce the product to Europe.”
He added: “[They have] strong routes to market in rental, broadcast, digital signage, corporate and retail sectors, all areas that will benefit from this exciting new product.”
Ed Martin, technical manager at PSCo, highlighted the screen’s lightweight properties demonstrating how it could be easily lifted from its mount, carried and replaced by two people. The company points out that its weight and flexibility will ease shipping and installation costs and headaches.
The product is suitable for indoor and outdoor use and, as well as boasting low power consumption, its bright display makes it suitable for light environments. The screen is robust and can even be hosed down after use.
NanoLumens’ 112” display can be viewed at PSCo’s Reading office and will be exhibited at ISE in February on Stand 1K113.
