Digital Wallpaper - A Great Digital Signage Option for Retail

 
NanoLumens custom display shapes

It seems no matter where we go we are inundated with digital signage displays, whether it is retail store fronts, bars & restaurants, airports, stadiums, or hotels. And it was only a few short years ago that we thought these new technologically advanced forms of video advertising were cutting edge and very cool. Today? Consumers have learned to block these out just as fast as we’ve learned to fast-forward past commercials on our DVR's.

Large Screen Flexible/Bendable Video Display Available Now! (video)

 
NanoLumens flexible video display


This 112" diagonal video display made by NanoLumens is incredible...it flexes and bends and puts out a VERY bright picture. Rob Jackson and Kyle Porter of NanoLumens were kind enough to drop by DSI headquarters in Los Angeles this past Monday (October 11, 2010) to give us a live demonstration of their amazing technology. We were so blown away with it that we just had to shoot a quick video to share with all of you...the only video camera on hand was the one built into the iPhone 4...so it is a bit grainy, but not bad considering!

Some more statistics on this flexible video display: it is called the NanoFlex and it weighs only 80 pounds and is about 1" thick. It can bend in a 36" radius, which means you can wrap it around columns. It has very low power consumption...only about 450 watts, which is amazing considering the size of the picture. As you can figure out by now, this is a fairly portable video display...we see it being used in all sorts of digital signage applications. The front video surface is waterproof, too, leading to even more possible applications.

This "flexible TV" uses an array of LED's to create the image, and these pixels are fairly small, but you do need to be several feet back for the picture to look smooth. In other words, the pixels are larger and more noticeable than a plasma or LCD TV if you are too close to it.

As you can tell from this video, NanoLumens has created a breakthrough with this new video display. You can order one through DSI AV, which is DSI Entertainment Systems' commercial audio video division. You can reach DSI AV at 866-692-8489 or contact Tim Knittel, DSI AV's Director of Commercial Business Development by clicking this link.
