“I did yoga in front of a giant nature screen and it was chill AF”

Tori Crowther, Pop Sugar

E-Stream Communications has integrated a full HD LED screen into FLY LDN, a yoga studio based in London.

The dark studio space has been lit up by their huge digiTHIN HD2600 screen, and with its vivid, brilliant images and outstanding contrasts it gives a very real and immersive feeling to the serene landscapes that are being showcased. It provides an ultra-calm environment and has been described as a platform that engages and motivates.

The digiTHIN HD2600 was an ideal choice for this project because it offers wide-angled viewing, perfect for a yoga studio attempting to provide a completely immersive experience.

“When a screen is going to be used all day every day, it must be completely reliable. Our digiTHIN HD2600 is exactly that, it’s perfection.

I really enjoyed working on this project, and the end result was incredible. This is a piece of LED technology that provides a visually superior experience to anyone lucky enough to witness it.”

Jon Perkins Group Technical Sales Manager, digiLED

“The amazing image quality of the digiTHIN puts it centre stage at FLY LDN, the City’s first immersive yoga and fitness studio”

Colossus TV, the largest centre hung LED Screen display in the world, is unleashed!

Tags : 

The phenomenal Colossus TV, the worlds largest centre hung LED display at Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee, has now gone live.

This gargantuan structure has four sides, each with a huge digiLED Toura 6mm LED screen measuring 19.2 metres wide by 9 metres high. That’s nearly the height of a three storey house. In total, the full system hosts almost 20 million pixels.

The digiLED Toura was designed by us to meet the specification requirements of our clients, GoVision, Panasonic and BMS. The 6mm pitch means that the pixels are grouped tighter than any other large-scale, permanent outdoor display. The result: a glimmering visual experience capable of offering 281 trillion different colours, is 23 times brighter and 25 percent sharper than the typical home HD TV.

The display hangs from a halo-shaped truss and features an additional circular LED display beneath the screens measuring over 6 metres in height. Between the screens and the LED ring, that’s more than 10,500 square feet of high-resolution, active viewing area.

Graham Burgess, digiLED CEO says “I’ve been doing this for a long time and been involved in some innovative and exciting projects. What we managed to achieve at Bristol took the use of LED screens to a different level. The thrill of seeing something on the scale of Colossus TV come together was truly awe inspiring. I’d encourage anyone to see this monster live, it is just amazing. Our friends at BMS, GoVision and Panasonic, together with all the other Partners involved are all so proud of what we have achieved and we are thrilled to have been a part of such a dynamic and thrilling installation!”

A ‘Big LED screen’ will never be the same for me again – Tom Mudd

Tom Mudd - digiLED Technical Director (3)

I have spent my entire career working on “big” screens but after Colossus, the latest project with GoVision using digiLED Toura 6mm and being installed at Bristol Motor Speedway, I’m seriously going to have to re-evaluate quite what the “big” means.

Everything about this project dwarfs all my previous builds. Until now, it was easy to describe sizes as “the size of a double garage” or “half a tennis court”. This job changes everything!

Every single face of screen weighs in at more than four and-a-half tonnes and measures 19.2 metres wide and 9 metres high. To put that in context, if Curries was promoting this, they’d call it an 835 inch TV. Each face of screen has 3,888,000 pixels – that’s 1.8 million pixels more than your domestic HD telly. The surface area of just one screen (and bear in mind there are 4 of these in the Colossus installation) is large enough under UK planning for 15 car parking spaces. Each screen is 2.7 Storeys high from bottom to top but bear in mind too, the top row of pixels sits 140 feet in the air (and that’s half the axel-height of the London Eye).

The bottom ring (flown just beneath the four faces of Colossus) contains 144 panels, (2,332,800 pixels) with a circumference so long that the Mars Curiosity Rover would take twenty four (and a half) minutes to drive around the ring.

A grand total of 20,217,600 pixels are installed within Colossus fed by a fibre optic loom containing more than 140 cores. Behind this sits a mega-rack with more than 36 digiLED Navigator-NV LED Processors dividing and distributing the multi-4k-content.

All in all, the gigantic Colossus is just that, absolutely colossal.

Sheffield Hallam University has recently installed a new LED Screen in their flagship lecture theatre, the first of its kind in the UK. Provided on behalf of Saville Audio Visual and in partnership with AV distributors AVM, this digiLED iMAG-R screen, 5m wide x 3m high with a 2.6mm pixel pitch has been chosen for its excellent image quality with high impact and great contrast, even with bright light levels in the theatre. The LED screen also adds benefit by enabling detailed content without the distraction of a projector shining in the presenters eyes.


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.
