We’ve written in this space before about the degrees of freedom in design NanoLumens grants each of our clients but its worth briefly touching on the media architecture successes of a few installations because each represents a remarkable achievement in thinking outside the box.
The new year is here and the digital signage landscape looks a lot different than it did this time last year. We expect it will evolve even further over the course of 2020 and we’ve highlighted a few areas we think might experience some noteworthy changes.
One of the sharpest cities in the American Southeast has received a dramatic digital makeover in recent years and the new look is delivering welcome buzz to a community striving to assert itself as a hub of commerce and innovation. Welcome to Charlotte, North Carolina.
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.
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.
LED, LCD, ULED, OLED, HDR, DLP, AV. This alphabet soup can get confusing if you aren’t immersed in the terminology on a day to day basis and one of the most common mix ups occurs with the phrases LED and OLED. Let’s clear up some of this confusion by asking and answering some questions about these evolving display types.
Taking place next Thursday at 1 PM, what this webinar ultimately promises is that participants will depart with the knowledge they need to design the direct view LED vision that’s always lived in their head.
We would like to once again explore another slightly technical subject that readers would do well to understand: bit depth. While most people involved in the digital display industry have at least a cursory understanding of the effects of bit depth, many may not fully grasp how it works.
You may have missed it but the CEDIA 2019 show took place earlier this month, bringing together thousands of home technology professionals and hundreds of exhibitors for a weeklong expo. For those unable to make the trip out to Denver for this year’s show, I’d like to share a few of my takeaways from what proved to be a thought-provoking experience.
