LED and effects specialist S+H acquires Glux HD-LED displays for rentals
Feb 7th, 2014
Ilfracombe, Devon based drapes, starcloth, LED and visual effects specialist S+H has taken delivery of its first batch of 100 square metres of Glux’s new 3.9 IDsnC high definition LED screen modules, which will join its existing extensive inventory of LED technologies and special effects available for rental and all types of special project installations.
The physical dimensions of each panel of Glux 3.9 are a handy 500 x 500 mm at 45mm deep, offering an impressively light weight of just 3Kg each or 12Kgs per square metre, making it one of the lightest HD LED screens currently on the market.
It is also around 70% lighter than most ‘lightweight’ competitor products.
S+H’s MD Terry Murtha confirms that the company will be making further investments in LED screen later this year to keep up with the demand from all types of productions especially television, theatre and special events – all key sectors for S+H.
“We already have a good selection of medium resolution LED screen from the same manufacturer plus some bespoke products that are made to our spec, and we were waiting for a high quality and reliable HD surface that would be compatible to come to the market ... and here it is”.
Glux LED screen -- one of the most popular high-end Chinese brands -- is renowned for being quick and easy to deploy and assemble without requiring any specialist tools.
“The key issues in our decision were the weight and user-friendliness,” comments Murtha, “and of course the value that we can pass on to our clients. Timescales for rigging any production are tight and a fast build is always essential. This is just one of the beauties of the Glux LED screens -- even a complex LED set up can be constructed extremely quickly from these products”.
The 3.9 mm IDsnC is an indoor screen constructed of rugged carbon fibre materials which enable the super-thin and very elegant appearance.
It is optimized for indoor use with the deepest blackness levels and sophisticated light-absorbing techniques.
The frames have an angled edge structure allowing for curved assembly -- up to 90 degrees.
It’s also compatible with all other Glux LED screens including processing, software and power supply elements.
S+H’s existing Glux 12mm screen has been constantly in use on touring productions and studio installations over the last 18 months where it’s proved extremely reliable, another reason Murtha didn’t have any hesitation in returning to the manufacturer as soon as the HD version became available.
