ISE 2016: new indoor UHD screens from Daktronics12 February 2016
How do you solve performance-limiting heat emissions as you increase your 4K display inventory? LED screen specialist Daktronics has the answer. Its new indoor UHD screens are designed for maximum image quality and minimal heat loss.
“Managing heat in an LED display is paramount since it is responsible for prematurely degrading LEDs and, for indoor product, heat generated by a display impacts HVAC requirements,” said Pete Egart, VP international, Daktronics. “One of things we’ve done is to feed less electricity into the components (generating less heat) but we still get twice the brightness.”
Available in a 1.9mm or a 2.7mm line spacing, the panels feature rapid processing technology which enables them to operate at half the power consumption of an industry standard solution and yet still feel cool to the touch even at full brightness.
“We’ve been in this business 47 years and learned a lot about how to control all the aspects of LED that can contribute to its failure,” he said. “A lot of other companies will still have to tackle these problems.”
The introduction of large 4K panels has prompted creatives to design content framed by lots of white, much like a magazine style.
“Since white is a combination of all colours, full white will use maximum power and can cause burnout on inferior display technology,” he observed.
