Primeview Debuts New 16 X 9 LED Cabinets

Primeview is making 16 X 9 LED walls more feasible by introducing a line of 16 X 9 LED cabinet tiles from which to build them.

LED (Light Emitting Diode) video walls are spectacularly bright, especially compared to their LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) equivalents, but in the past they have been hard to install because of the small size of the individual LED cabinets or tiles. In addition, arranging them in the preferred 16 X 9 aspect ratio has been hindered by their conventionally square size.

But as Chanan Averbuch, evp of Primeview Americas told The Broadcast Bridge, that is all about to change.

“The new trend in LED cabinets is going to be 16 X 9 across the board,” he said. “And most importantly, unlike LCD modules, direct view LED tiles are not surrounded by bezels so the aggregated image, or canvas, they present can be completely seamless.”

Now, Primeview has introduced a new line of 16 X 9 LED cabinets available in 1.2, 1.6, 2, 2.5 and 3mm pitches, with the highest refresh rates on the market—up to 4800 Hz.

Considering that, even without modification, LED tiles can be 3X to 5X brighter than wall size canvases created with LCD technology, they are ideally suited for applications such as backdrops in broadcast studios, information walls in briefing centers and, of course, digital signage.

Says ABC Studios and ESPN are currently using Primeview direct view LED tile displays.

Since Primeview LED tile cabinets come in 16 X 9 sizes, that makes combining them into 16 X 9 video walls much easier than before.

“It is important to know that these new cabinets are available today, Averbuch said. “They are ready to ship.”
