NEC Display debuts 1.9mm fine pitch LED video wall

30 Mar 2016

NEC Display Solutions of America has launched a 1.9mm fine pitch direct view LED video wall which the company says addresses a growing need for bigger screen sizes, brighter images, higher resolutions, zero bezels and easier serviceability.

The fine pitch LiFT (LED intelligent front technology) solutions are the result of NEC’s partnership with LED manufacturer and media system integration specialist S[quadrat], and are built with 16:9 modules, with interchangeable pixel panels.

Keith Yanke, NEC Display senior director of product marketing, says the partnership with S[quadrat] has enabled NEC Display to offer customers a wider range of solutions.

“With rapidly changing market dynamics, the NEC LiFT LED product portfolio is poised to give organisations across a broad range of industry sectors the tools to achieve their business requirements,” Yanke says.

Andreas Brockschmidt, S[quadrat] sales and marketing director, dubs the fine pitch LED offerings are ‘the right solutions for the changing market landscape of large screen displays’.

NEC Display says the LiFT video walls feature 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 3.8mm version can upgrade later to a 1.9mm pitch and run 4K content without changing anything else on the wall,” NEC says.

The pixel panels have a lifetime of more than 80,000 hours.
