Lighthouse Leads the Way with Direct View LEDs Offering Incredible Imagery, Easy Installation

lighthouse quantum direct view leds

Simplifying the specification and installation of direct view LEDs while improving image quality with the latest HDR technology, Lighthouse expands its offerings in the Quantum q-Series and Dynamic Series

Costa Mesa, CA (May 2018) – Lighthouse Technologies Limited, a leading global brand in direct view LED video display solutions with a 20-year history in the USA, showcases incredible imagery and simplified signage solutions at InfoComm 2018. Designed to address and eliminate many of the barriers to entry for direct-view LEDs in commercial applications, the Quantum q-Series and Dynamic Series deliver high dynamic range imagery across a wide color gamut. The Quantum q-Series includes proprietary, first-of-its-kind Peak Luminance Enhancement (PLE) technology for noticeably higher contrast levels and increased luminance.  

Lighthouse direct view LEDs have an established footprint in indoor and outdoor applications. Their ultrabright imagery enhances the experience at world-famous stadiums and other professional sports venues, as well as in the center of Times Square. Lighthouse’s digital signage solutions also add flair to Westfield shopping properties worldwide and inside New York’s World Trade Center, where the Quantum q-Series are currently in use.

Lighthouse Automatic LED Management Prolongs Panel Life and Reduces Maintenance
Designed to support high pixel density indoor applications, Lighthouse Quantum q-Series fine pitch LED indoor displays offer long life and best-in-class contrast for superior image reproduction even in high ambient light environments.

Available in 1.5mm, 1.8mm, or 2.5mm pixel pitch, the q-Series boasts truly revolutionary and highly differentiated technology inside each panel. to eliminate problems characteristic of other display solutions. Available for the first time in the category, Lighthouse’s proprietary Chromatic Modulation Technology (CMT) features an integrated photosensor mounted inside each panel, continuously measuring the output for each LED module. The CMT nerve center automatically corrects for luminance and uniformity, addressing issues that other technologies ignore as they age or when they are swapped out for repair or maintenance. Lighthouse Quantum q-Series direct-view LED panels virtually eliminates these problems.

The Lighthouse LEAP-S processor and proprietary processing algorithm convert 8-bit video source materials to 10-bit HDR output, providing a new level of versatility and taking advantage of HDR performance for existing source material.

PLE Delivers the Best, Brightest Images and Most Accurate Color Reproduction
Peak Luminance Enhancement (PLE) technology increases peak luminance and enables higher contrast ratios and a wider color space through proprietary HDR technology. High Dynamic Range (HDR) is a content and display standard that provides performance guidelines for manufacturers to follow. Lighthouse differentiates itself with the introduction of their proprietary Peak Luminance Enhancement (PLE) to enhance the HDR experience.

Within the q-Series displays, the LEAP-S processor system can sense the incoming video source and analyze it to locate bright areas in the image (within 3-7 pixels) that surround areas that are a lower level of brightness. The PLE technology then adapts the gamut curve for those bright areas, to enhance their luminance approximately 20 percent. This provides a noticeably higher level of contrast.

The difficulty is to provide this analysis and manipulation without introducing extreme frame delay between the input signal and the display. Lighthouse provides industry-leading single frame delays throughout the PLE process when HDR is enabled. PLE helps create a more impactful video experience for any application, from restaurant menu boards to retail signage and even interactive displays.

Lighthouse Dynamic Series Direct View LED Meets the Need!

Lighthouse Dynamic Series Direct View LED Meets the Need!

The Dynamic Series Meets the Need!

The display industry is dominated by flat panel displays from home televisions, to digital signage hanging on walls or suspended from a ceiling, all the way up to giant outdoor LED signs. LCD flat panel displays still dominate the conversation for most small to medium display applications. While LCDs can address big images with a matrix of panels in a videowall, it is the emergence of indoor fine pitch direct view LED that provides insight into the future of truly seamless large screen displays.

There are two remaining obstacles to wider adoption of fine pitch direct view LED. One is the complexity of configuring individual led panels or tiles into a bigger display, and the second is the issue of pricing. Both obstacles are addressed with the introduction of the Lighthouse Technologies innovative Dynamic series LED displays.

Playing to one of the strong suits of fine pitch direct view LED, the Dynamic series 2.5MM is seamless and comes in 89” and 118” models. They come complete as a preconfigured and framed group of LED modules on a backplane. The modules are cable-free and can be serviced from the front via a magnetic tool. A person simply orders (and receives) Dynamic just as they would a traditional flat panel display with no configuration or assembly of small modules to consider. In short, no learning curve required.

Both models, 89” and 118” are plug and play in either a portrait or landscape mode. They connect to standard video sources via HDMI, and have a built-in media player with Wi-Fi, LAN, and USB connections. Since one major application for the Dynamic series will be digital signage (and retail in particular), each display comes with an included content management system (CMS), with management and scheduling tools for a group of pre-designed templates. Featuring an energy efficiency improvement of 20% over similar sized displays, the Dynamic makes it easy to specify fine pitch direct view LED displays.

The second obstacle to direct view LED overall has been price. With increased volume and new manufacturing methods, prices are beginning to reflect the benefits. The new Dynamic series at 2.5MM is a prime example of this trend, and hits the sweet spot of not only the market but the prices as well. The Dynamic is priced competitively with comparably sized flat panel configurations.

The Dynamic proves the point that necessity IS the mother of invention!
