Daktronics is to present its DVN Ultra High Definition (UHD) line of LED modules when it returns to ISE 2016 in February. These small pixel-pitch systems have been specified to deal with indoor applications where viewers will be in close proximity.

As well as being available in 1.9mm and 2.7mm pixel-pitch, the DVN UHD series is configured to emit low amounts of heat, which increases both the display performance and the expected lifetime of the product, which is stated at 100,000 hours.

"Managing heat in an LED display is paramount," suggests Lane Munson, product manager at Daktronics. "Heat is responsible for prematurely degrading LEDs and, for indoor products, heat generated by a display impacts HVAC requirements.

"By reducing power consumption to half the amount of similar products, our customers save money on electricity, reduce emitted heat and add to the lifetime of their display. And, if faced with high ambient lighting conditions, Daktronics UHD displays can achieve greater brightness levels and still operate more efficiently than others on the market today."

The DVN-1.7mm module is designed to use an average of 168W/sq m while delivering a minimum LED refresh rate of 1,900 Hz and a calibrated brightness of 1,500 nits. The DVN–2.5mm is more energy efficient, providing the same luminosity and refresh speeds with an average consumption of 158W/sq m.

While Daktronics is known for its outdoor displays, with a number of notable installations at stadia and venues across North America and Europe, it is not alone in pursuing a growing market for small pixel-pitch LED for the indoor market. As a long-time player in the LED space, the manufacturer will hope to use its experience to gain an advantage over competitors that have moved across from portfolios largely consisting of LCD displays.
