Elation’s lightweight transparent LED video panels feature IP65 rating

July 1, 2009
Date Announced: 01 Jul 2009 LOS ANGELES - Now you can flash your message, graphics or video anywhere you choose - indoors or out, day or night - with Elation Professional’s new lightweight, transparent IP65-rated LED video panels. Designed for creating vibrant video screens, curtains and backdrops, the panels are available in three versions: medium-resolution SMD Tri-Color, EVLED 1024SMD (20mm pixel pitch); medium-resolution RGB Discrete LED, EVLED 1024 (18.75mm pixel pitch); and low-resolution RGB Discrete LED, EVLED 256 (37.5 mm pixel pitch).Ideal for concerts, stages, touring productions and special events, the EVLED panels feature an integrated rigging/hanging system that allows users to easily assemble any size LED video screen, large or small. Up to 16 pieces can be linked on 1 AC circuit, and as many as 1,000 pieces can be run from one Ethernet video output using Elation’s ELED VSC driver (sold separately), which can run 2 outputs to 2 screens simultaneously.With brightness up to 5,500 nits, the EVLED panels are fully viewable in daylight, unlike many projection video systems. This makes them a great solution for displaying video at outdoor festivals, concerts and events that take place before sundown.“One of the biggest trends today in lighting and production is the convergence of lights with video, so we designed the EVLED panels to serve as the perfect ‘pixel screen,’” said Eric Loader, director of sales for Elation Professional. “These transparent LED panels are extremely bright, yet they’re also very compact, lightweight and easy to set up, which makes them great for touring and rentals. They can be used anytime, anywhere, since they’re daylight-viewable and rated at IP65, meaning they’ve been tested to withstand dust and rain for outdoor applications. Plus, they’re priced very affordably.”Featuring a rugged aluminum alloy frame and rubber compound gasket, the EVLED panels are true weatherproof road warriors. Should a pixel ever get damaged, the user can simply remove and replace the strip, without having to go to the expense of buying an entire new panel – a unique convenient, money-saving feature. With each tile measuring a compact 2’ x 2’ x 3” (2’1” x 2’1” x ‘3” for the 1024SMD) and weighing in at 10-20 lbs., the panels pack up easily and take up very little space in the truck. “You can fit enough EVLED panels in just 2 road cases to build a pretty good-sized screen, whereas with conventional box panels it might take as many as 10-15 cases,” said Loader.The EVLED panels include on-board electronics and a built-in multi-voltage power supplies (90-240V). Their long-life LEDs are rated at 100,000 hours, and they come with a 2-year factory warranty.
