LED displays have started to become more and more prominent as the cost of building the displays and lights have plummeted in recent years. According to Eric Taub of the New York Times in a 2008 article, “L.E.D. bulbs, with their brighter light and longer life, have already replaced standard bulbs in many of the nation’s traffic lights. Indeed, the red, green and yellow signals are — aside from the tiny blinking red light on a DVD player, a cellphone or another electronic device — probably the most familiar application of the technology.” Clearly this application is huge and something that will attract many more people to the technology.
Fortunately, with the appearance of these technologies many of the associated costs are going down and that is only going to be a good thing for the environment and for the businesses that are looking to install the tech. Again according to Taub, “The L.E.D., a type of semiconductor, generates light when an electric current is passed through positive and negative materials. Energy is given off in the form of heat and light. Different colors and greater efficiency are created by altering the composition of the material. Typically, a compact fluorescent bulb uses about 20 percent of the energy needed for a standard bulb to create the same amount of light. Today’s L.E.D.’s use about 15 percent.” This is a huge jump and something that again will be a huge benefit to many of the companies that are looking to use this technology.
Nevertheless, if you find yourself looking to harness this technology for your company, it is necessary to figure out what type of LED display you are looking to use and how you are looking to take advantage of the technology and everything that it offers. There is one company out there on the vanguard of this technology and that is Pixel Flex. Pixel Flex offers all kinds of LED technology and has adapted it to be even more accessible in terms of price and utility. A good example of this is their LED curtains. According to Pixel Flex’s website, “FLEXCurtain is a flexible LED wall similar to the traditional LED panels that you see at concerts and events. The PixelFLEX LED Curtain, however, offers a variety of advantages over the competition. Where the competition’s LED panels are heavy, PixelFLEX LED curtains are ultralight — LED Walls from PixelFLEX weigh 60-90% less than other large LED screen options.” As a result, you have a technology that not only allows for you to harness the ability of the technology to be used, but it is made easier due to the reduced weight of the curtain. This is something that instantly makes the technology more accessible for any business that is in the market for using that kind of technology. The same would go for a sports stadium that is constantly looking to boost consumer interest in the games and the entire stadium experience.
Give it a try and see how it might be able to benefit your business.
