Lighthouse offers enhanced resolution LED panels

Date Announced: 24 Feb 2005

Lighthouse Technologies, Ltd. today broke new ground with the introduction of the P12-Enhanced Resolution (ER) indoor/outdoor light emitting diode (LED) panels, which use advanced digital processing to enhance resolution to include more detailed information on a smaller screen. With a 12.5mm dot pitch resolution, the P12-ER allows more images, graphics and text to be displayed on 25mm panels.

The P12-ER are the first LED panels to combine the benefits of Lighthouse's M4 color uniformity, 14-bit grayscale and resolution-enhancing technology. Aggressively priced to offer performance which surpasses today's virtual pixel display products, the P12-ER is best suited for advertising and stadium applications that require mid-size screens with high-resolution for longer viewing distances.

Recognizing the demand for a wider variety of LED signage, P12-ER is the first in a line of enhanced resolution products Lighthouse plans to introduce in 2005. The internal architecture of the onboard processor in each panel features Lighthouse's proprietary technology, enabling a high-resolution screen with better quality imaging at an affordable price.

"The Lighthouse P12-ER delivers image quality that is superior to any virtual pixel products on the market today," said Lighthouse Managing Director Mark Chan. "Our market research has found that extremely high-resolution screens are often times unnecessary and unattainable for many customers. Lighthouse's new enhanced resolution line of products is an attractive option that set new standards for affordable, high-resolution LED signage."

Lighthouse's new enhanced resolution screen is ideal for applications requiring detailed images and information, including both indoor and outdoor advertising displays, sports venues and retail signage. The P12-ER features high brightness of 5000 NITS, wide viewing angles and crisp picture quality. The product's 12.5mm dot pitch resolution, 14-bit grayscale processing and Lighthouse's M4 color and brightness correction systems provides excellent presentation quality in a cost-effective package.

The P12-ER is available now and pricing varies with application. Other features of the P12-ER include:

-- 140-degree horizontal viewing angle

-- 1,600 -per-m2 pixel density

-- 4.4 trillion color capability

-- 50/60-frame-per-second frame rate

-- Display input for RGB HV, SDI, RGB, YUV, YC, Composite, PAL/NTSC, VGA overlay (HDTV and HDSDI optional)

-- Lifetime 50,000 hours to half brightness

The P12-ER has already been installed in two sites with positive results. Other Lighthouse LED panels and screens can be found all over the world, from Piccadilly Circus in London, to the Seattle Seahawks and San Diego Padres Stadiums, to the Dubai Airport in UAE, to wirelessly controlled billboard signage in New York City.
