Video display sector to become fourth largest AV market by 2018

A recent InfoComm International report published suggests that the video display sector is set to climb one place to become the fourth largest AV market field by 2018, replacing the current holders of that position, video projection.

Conducted by the industry body, in collaboration with information, analytics and solutions organisation IHS Markit, the InfoComm Outlook and Trends Analysis (IOTA) project examined detailed figures collected from a sample of key vendors, and sourced buyer-side data from segments including: broadcast media, education, the government, hospitality, retail, plus security surveillance. Statistics collated within previous investigative efforts have been reinforced by additional primary and secondary research and comprehensive macroeconomic forecasting for the project.

IOTA predicts a positive outlook on industry market trends through 2022. Regardless of prognostications that global GDP growth will continue to decline slightly over the next couple of years (falling from 6.7% to 6.1% in 2019), report results suggest a maintained increase in AV revenues. It is expected that there will be a rise from $178.4 billion in 2016 to $198.7 billion in 2019, up to indications of an escalation of more than 29% in 2022, where total revenue will peak at $231 billion.

digiLED is experiencing increased demand for digital signage in retail and education markets

The report highlighted that AV market growth will be driven by new buyers in the marketplace incorporating technology into their businesses. The conventional corporate market is anticipated to remain as the largest buyer segment (at a projected value of $46 billion globally in 2022), yet will have grown by a margin of just over 8% from 2016. Collectively, the next four biggest sectors – venues & events, media & entertainment, retail and education – will proliferate by a huge 37% meanwhile, to an amalgamated 2022 worldwide market size of $108.9 billion.

Projected growth by the visual display market is down to strengthened consumer confidence according to IOTA. The report anticipates the demand for digital signage to increase further, fuelled by the emergence of new key markets. For example, retail space owners are increasingly turning to LED screen systems to attract and engage customers, facilitating more opportunities for multiplied sales to an area relatively untouched by the technology previously. LED display innovations and its ubiquitous quality – coupled with reduced component costs enabling greater availability to target markets – has led to the upsurge in sales.

Recent discoveries of new market verticals combined with the upward trend of digital out-of-home (DOOH) displays used for brand marketing and advertising, has developed a self-perpetuating ecosystem for the generation and distribution of video content, in turn maximising the demand for display systems.

Establishing fourth position in the AV industry market size rankings has come at the expense of video projection. It is estimated that projection will experience the most substantial decline of all markets evaluated, dropping to eighth position in 2022. Revenue figures which stood at around $28.3 billion in 2014 is analysed to fall by approximately 62% to $10.8 billion in 2022.

The convenience and class of LED screens has impacted the projection market, leading to the statistics portraying significant decline ahead. Higher education settings, for instance, are shifting to high-quality, leading-edge LED displays for advertising efforts and to communicate core messages to students, showcasing their credentials to attract the most talented individuals. Identified as the perfect technology for universities, LED displays offer: supreme brightness performance in areas requiring adequate ambient lighting levels for note-taking, a long lifetime (ideal for a high-use environment), increased immersivity through module creation to scale to any size or angled configuration, and avoid obstructed views and alignment issues commonly posed by projector systems.

digiLED QUASAR screen part of Uni. of Northampton development

Believed to be the first installation of an LED screen on a biomass flue worldwide, digiLED have successfully completed the fitting of its QUASAR LED display technology on the recently developed Waterside campus at the University of Northampton, on behalf of its client, Vital Energi.

Comprising thirty-three 10mm pixel pitch digiLED QUASAR modules, the display on the flue tower measures over 27 square metres and overlooks the University campus. Considerable care was taken to establish and maintain the screen’s operating temperature: ventilation holes were designed in the metal cladding to aid airflow.

Selected for its environmentally-friendly specifications, QUASAR operates sustainably, sharing the client and end user’s ethos to provide energy-efficient solutions. The system has an IP rating of 65 on the front and back of each LED module, as well as possessing an auto-brightness sensor to monitor ambient light levels every five minutes, reconfiguring settings to reflect current weather conditions and time of day.

Vital Energi Project Manager, Stuart Hoyle, said: “The installed product ticks all the boxes. Following the screen’s switch on at the client opening day, they were, and still are, amazed at the picture clarity and quality produced by the hardware.

“digiLED QUASAR technology is ideal for this application as the system’s modules are ultra-efficient, have an incredible lifespan and maintenance is safe, simple and at little expense. The idea that the screen can be seen clearly from the main road approximately 600m away P1020299is a huge bonus for the promotional messages of the University.

“Tonie Wishart (digiLED Installation & Maintenance Manager) and his team worked brilliantly even in fairly difficult conditions when installing the display on to the flue tower. They were very easy to deal with on this project: their meticulous planning and execution of the works was faultless and the result is superb. In addition, Tonie ensured there were no snags that would require attention post-completion, the only contractor on this job to achieve this,” commented Hoyle.

Tom Mudd, digiLED Technical Director explained that modern day LED screen technology “is capable of working 80% more efficiently” compared to its counterparts designed at the dawn of LED screen systems, by encompassing components which operate using reduced power consumption.

“digiLED consistently undertakes processes and makes informed selections that will positively impact upon the local and global environment to preserve natural resources. For example, our innovations have replaced antiquated systems, no longer needing the huge transformers, massive copper cables and electrical supplies of yesteryear,” added Mudd.

Case Study: Education Market


High brightness & engaging content entices shoppers – Jon Perkins

Jon Perkins - digiLEDA recent Microsoft report suggests that the average human loses concentration after only eight seconds – a four-second decrease from the start of the century. To put this into some sort of context, goldfish, with an attention span of nine seconds, have now eclipsed us. Technological advancements are considered responsible for this decline.

To combat these dwindling attention spans and disrupt target audiences’ busy lifestyles, structured routines and frequent purchases, retailers are turning to eye-catching, large-format LED screen displays to entice high street shoppers.

Striking brightness is a distinguishable characteristic that elevates LED display signage over alternative communication tool options. Capable of achieving high brightness levels, innovative LED technology produces a brilliant, unambiguous light that is easily visible from close-up and longer distances, cutting through marketing noise even in ambient lighting.

Initially, displays need to be noticeable, but generating engaging content that presents key brand messages to customers is also paramount. It’s recommended that the display’s video loop should be split into several easily digestible segments: a 60-second clip could be separated into five-second increments for passers-by to contemplate messages on the move.

Flexibility is imperative for businesses to stay ahead of the competition. In a fast-moving environment, adaptation is vital in distancing themselves from rival companies. LED screens offer a versatile and efficient means of adjusting messages to accommodate any required modifications. Many outlets benefit when incorporating digital signage by altering message presentation that enhances a customer’s visit experience. In restaurants for example, menu boards can be updated throughout the day to reflect busy periods or popularity of a particular item. Retailers’ focus should be displaying more value propositions. An advanced method of achieving this would be to use customer demographics to deliver targeted communication – interactive displays in a sports shop could populate content that advertises female running shoes when women walk past, for instance.

LED screen technology augments business profiles and arms retail space owners with an effective solution to a common challenge faced, which is to create fresh, exciting customer experiences: companies recognise the power of ‘unique’ and its effect on footfall and revenue. When done correctly, digital signage maximises the effectiveness of brand and product marketing to make a real impact and influence customer buying decisions.

digiLED screens star at 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards

In partnership with our major rental clients Pete’s Big TVs, digiLED DLP LED screen technology featured in the creative stage design at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, held in the acclaimed Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

A combination of digiLED DLPi 3.9mm and DLPo 5.9mm LED video screen products starred in the set, collaboratively created by production designer David Edwards, Jr. of D Before E, Inc. and art direction by Anthony Bishop of AWB Design, LLC. Bishop and PBTV have worked together previously on several projects, but this was the first time providing LED screens for an MTV movie awards event.

A mammoth 80-tile-wide curved screen featured upstage as well as LED covering the inside, and outsides, of entry tunnels that were built into the screen. PBTV’s inventory of digiLED’s versatile DLP range of products allowed the team to fulfil the creative team’s innovative design ideas. By utilising the Variable Angle Connector, DLP modules have the capability of curving up to 15˚ in convex and concave directions.

In addition, PBTV incorporated digiLED’s Right Angle Connector and the new mini tiles (125mm wide) enabling 90˚ attachments for seamless video presentation, wrapping content around both sides of the set’s tunnels.

Guy Benjamin, PBTV Vice-President, explained: “These mini tiles are a quarter of a standard tile in width, which allowed us to make right angles for the tunnel effects. Normally, you’d see the dark edge of a video tile where a right angle is formed, with these new mini tiles you can make a seamless right angle with smooth video wrapping around the edge.”

digiLED DLPi 3.9mm modules followed the curves and covered the auditorium’s opera boxes with high-resolution video content.

“Pete’s was the right company for the MTV Movie & TV Awards production, because we were able to make a screen this big with the curves and the video-covered tunnels,” Benjamin said. “We really had never done anything on this scale, but were successful due to the flexibility of these new DLP products from digiLED. We used the mini tiles from the face of the screen onto the tunnel as well as on the inside and up into the ceiling, so we were really using a lot of the new features of this product line.”

The company has experienced considerable expansion in its presence on the West Coast. The 2017 MTV Movies & TV Awards show is the latest project in an increasing portfolio of events PBTV has covered with its range of our LED screen technology in the Los Angeles area for the events and television broadcast market.

Benjamin added: “We have been seriously expanding our inventory of LED product and have been putting more of it in LA. PBTV has the technicians and the equipment to support your next creative applications.”
