New digiLED sales office and showroom opens in Shenzhen

新建文件夹IMG_4869

Growth has been a consistent theme in recent months for digiLED and it has continued with the opening of a new office in Qianhai, the new Free Trade Zone in the heart of Shenzhen, China.

digiLED Shenzhen will act as the central hub for the region, home to our knowledgeable Asian technical team responsible for the planning and monitoring of component production to deliver innovative LED products of the highest quality.

新建文件夹IMG_4836“Having a fixed location in China will help establish and solidify relationships with component suppliers in the country as there is often a lack of trust between them and overseas companies,” explained Cherry Tsai, General Manager of digiLED Shenzhen. “This improves digiLED’s reliability and versatility across the production process going forward.”

The new location includes a showroom displaying the latest products in the digiLED range, closely resembling The Pixel Depot at the company’s Head Office situated near London.

“The showroom is going to be an important factor in multiplying business in the region as local clients will have the opportunity to compare product options in one place as opposed to travelling to many different factories across China,” added Tsai. “Having selected a shortlist of products, the reduced number of factory visits can be more productive.”

The expansion increases digiLED’s operation in the Far East with offices in Hong Kong and Tokyo. The company also has offices across Europe, in North America as well as in Africa. Tsai said that there are plans to employ local salespersons responsible for identifying and serving the South American and Middle Eastern markets, demonstrating digiLED’s ability to perform on a truly global scale.

digiLED (HK) Ltd and digiLED (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd are subsidiaries of digiLED Group Ltd.

Another successful digiLEDucation day

Tags : 

IMG_2458Coordinated by digiLED’s team of industry experts, the latest digiLEDucation course has been run at The Pixel Depot, Europe’s largest LED screen showroom of its kind.

The course is designed to offer those looking to sell LED screens an insight into the complex multi-technology solutions available to end users. The aim is to transfer knowledge to those who have previously had little or no exposure to LED displays to both specify the technology and demonstrate expertise by being able to answer any questions their clients might have.

Jon Perkins, digiLED Group Technical Sales Manager, hosted the latest event and explained: “It is always amazing to see how quickly attendees engage with the technology, content and demonstrations, gaining a solid understanding into the world of LED screens in the process. We’re delighted with the interest and the positive response we get for our courses.”DLCT 1

Other speakers included Graham Burgess (digiLED CEO), Guy Horrigan (digiLED Commercial Director) and Tom Mudd (digiLED Technical Director).

There was plenty of positive feedback from those in attendance at the event. 91% found that the training was “very useful” and 79% suggested that they would be interested in further training courses held by digiLED.

LED Screens in a dirty old town – Tom Mudd

Tags : 

Tom Mudd - digiLED Technical Director (3)When changing LED tiles in screens that are located in urban areas, it’s easy to see how polluted the environment we live in can be. Dirt, dust and construction ash all tend to accumulate on the LED screen faces and you may wonder why this doesn’t have more of a detrimental effect on the viewing characteristics. One of the main reasons this grime isn’t a problem is due to the nature of the shaders, also known as louvers, on the front of the LED screen.

The shaders stick out horizontally from the face of the screen and are designed to block the sunlight and place the LED pixel into a darker area of plastic, hence improving in the video picture. A side-effect of this is that it is generally the upper face of the shader that catches the dirt and grime from the urban fallout. Viewers on the other hand tend to sit below the LED screens and look up at the display. From this angle the viewer will see the underside of the shader (generally much cleaner than the top side).

Having a universal layer of grime is can be useful, but you only notice that the tile is particularly dirty when its placed beside a clean fresh tile and in some installations it’s even been known to the spares kit to be stored outside so the spare tiles weather at the same rate as the tiles in the screen.

So in summary while a bit of dirt can be a good thing, it’s also worthwhile having a regular maintenance programme in place to make sure that your screen is kept in pristine condition.


When it comes to LED screen pixel quality, buy once and buy right – Tom Mudd

Tags : 

Tom Mudd - digiLED Technical Director (3)On 2 January 2014 the 12-year-old Lighthouse Screen at Thompson Reuters, Canary Wharf was ripped out and upgraded with a digiLED ITe10 screen. The new digiLED screen offered a considerable upgrade to the old Lighthouse one, with the latest outdoor rating on the Nichia LEDs, and true 6500 nit daylight viewable brightness. Even so, it was an uphill struggle to persuade the client that it was worth spending the extra money on a better quality Nichia SMD LED chip.

Since that time, more than 750 days have passed. That equates to > 18,000 hours of operation time of the new screen.Why is this relevant? Because last week we had to do the first ever tile swap on the screen.

Undertaking a tile swap requires a brand-new LED tile to be removed from the spares kit and placed into the screen. Of course the brand-new tile has a runtime of less than 24 hours (from factory testing) compared that to the neighbouring tiles on the screen with a runtime of 18,000 hours.

Numerically, the difference in runtime / work life of the two tiles is massive! We warned the client at the time about the potentially visible difference, however when the new LED tile was installed the difference was minimal. Combine that with the on-board calibration memory feature of the digiLED ITe10, and all that was needed was a reboot of the scan card and bingo! The calibration data of the new tile was loaded side-by-side with a calibration of the original tiles.

The end result? The new LED tile disappeared – it became unrecognisable from its neighbours on the screen 🙂

Joy! This is what happens when you purchase quality LEDs at the start of your project. As is often the case, we had a long, protracted discussion when planning the screen with the owner about why you should choose Nichia LEDs and not some cheaper Chinese brand.

“These will give you greater efficiency,” we said. “Nichia will give you greater reliability,” we said. “Nichia LEDs will give you a longer lifespan,” we said… and last week we proved it !


Pixel Pitch v Pixels per Square Metre – Graham Burgess

Tags : 

Graham Burgess - digiLED CEO (4)Staying with the ISE theme, I want to make a point about the resolution of an LED screen and the way our industry describes it. Back at ISE2004, a 6mm pixel pitch (better described as 27,777 pixels per square metre) was considered a high resolution screen and the thought of building an HD LED screen was ludicrous.
Last week in Amsterdam any self respecting LED screen supplier featured at least 1.9mm (277,000 pixels per square metre), ten times the resolution of 2004. Using 1.9mm we can fit an HD screen into just 7.5 square metres, in 2004 the same HD screen, using 6mm technology, would have been almost 75 square metres.
We were even treated to a 0.9mm pitch (1,234,567 pixels per square metre) from Unilumin, that’s more than 44 times the resolution from the 6mm screen 13 years ago. Do you see this way of expressing resolution is more informative than a simple pixel pitch?
Interestingly, they showed a full HD LED display using 1.25 million pixels per square metre (lets call it 1.25 psm) and it was only just over 1.5 square metres.
My telly’s bigger than that!!
