In attempting to digitally recreate real life on a screen, one of the most important metrics to consider is contrast ratio, which the National American Standards Institute lays out as “the absolute difference in luminance between the peak white and black levels” of a display. While resolution, pixel pitch, and color space receive more attention from digital display customers and manufacturers alike, overall picture quality might actually be more dependent on contrast ratio. The reason contrast ratio is such a crucial determinant in image quality is because distinct elements of an image only stand out relative to their surroundings. If a display is unable to accurately differentiate the brightness of those surroundings from the brightness of the distinct image element in question, the resulting on-screen picture will fail to resemble true life.
The fifth annual NanoLumens Crystal Nixel™ Awards, recognizing excellence in the creative design of a NanoLumens LED visualization solution, are now open for submissions here.
November 11th is celebrated every year in the United States as Veterans Day, honoring all Americans who have served our country in the armed forces. The holiday, renamed from Armistice Day in 1954, has fallen on November 11th every year since 1918 in remembrance of the ending of the first World War, which formally culminated on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.
At NanoLumens, we believe strongly in supporting our veterans […]
There are two ways to measure the space between pixels and each tell their own story. The first is pixel pitch, a common specification listed early in the description of any digital display product. The second is fill ratio, the less common of the two metrics and one that only you’ll find listed much lower on any given spec sheet. Understanding the difference between these two specifications is crucial to identifying which display is best for your needs.
NanoLumens Vice President of Systems Engineering Doug Price will explain and explore many of the AV industry’s most common and most confusing specifications
ATLANTA, GEORGIA, October 28th, 2019 – NanoLumens, award-winning creators of uniquely compelling interactive LED visualization solutions, today announced it will host a unique webinar on November 14th, 2019 entitled, “Locking Down LED Lingo.” The webinar will run from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EST and registration is now open here.

This webinar will detail is an alternative approach to display specification, an approach that considers displays not as a box but as a free-form canvas. Audiences will learn how to spot the degrees of freedom differences between bespoke direct view LED systems and more commoditized competition as well as which precise specification freedoms set apart the high-end display providers from sub-par substitutes. Participants will leave this webinar with the knowledge they need to design the direct view LED vision that’s always lived in their head. There’s a new way to think about LED; let us show you what we mean.
