NORCROSS, GEORGIA, November 26, 2012 — NanoLumens® today announced a strategic alliance with São Paulo, Brazil-based technology integrator NC4U to support the display manufacturer’s rapidly growing Latin American market. The partnership was formed after the companies worked together on Latin America’s largest-ever digital signage installation project for São Paulo’s new Metro Line 4. According to Almir DeCarvalho, NanoLumens‘ VP of International Sales, this is an important step in the company’s expansion into international markets.
“Retailers, sports arenas, convention halls and public transportation hubs all over the world are recognizing the incredible benefits of NanoLumens LED displays,” DeCarvalho said, “and our new partnership with NC4U gives our technology the representation it deserves in the Latin American market. High quality digital signage installers and systems integrators will play an integral role in NanoLumens’ growth as they increasingly spec our products and help us grow public visibility.”
NC4U is a full-service company that specializes in digital signage applications, utilizing today’s most advanced display technologies to merge advertising, promotions, media, engineering and technology to meet every client’s digital signage and advertising needs.
According to NC4U’s Edgard Bueno Junior, NanoLumens’ LED display technology gives Latin American advertisers and business owners a unique and powerful new medium to deliver their digital messaging to the masses.
“In a fiercely competitive field like digital signage, NanoLumens has made a name for itself by offering a product that no other manufacturer can match. The NanoLumens displays we are installing at São Paulo’s new Metro Line 4 stations are the digital centerpiece of the project, and we’re excited to be a part of bringing the company’s breakthrough LED displays to the Latin American market.”
NanoLumens displays are extremely slim, ultra-lightweight, energy efficient, and feature a bright, seamless, high resolution picture quality that can be viewed from any angle throughout the display horizon without color shift or image distortion. The company’s patented display technology, which allows customers to select from 4mm up to 10mm pixel pitch (depending on the model), promises to transform the way marketers engage their customers in every type of trade show, retail, hospitality, stadium, arena, transportation and public event environment.
NanoLumens displays are designed and engineered with the environment in mind, and consume significantly less energy per square foot than conventional digital displays. Further emphasizing their commitment to eco-friendly technology, NanoLumens displays are composed of up to 50 percent reclaimed materials, and are completely recyclable. What’s more, some NanoLumens displays can be serviced from the front, making maintenance easier than ever before possible.
Designed and assembled in the United States, NanoLumens displays are offered in standard configurations as well as design-specific configurations to fit virtually any size, shape or curvature in both the NanoFlexline of flexible displays and the NanoSlim line of fixed frame displays.
The company’s technology has been named ‘Best LED Product’ of the year by Rental & Staging magazine in its 2012 INFOCOMM Product Awards Program, as well as being recognized by Entrepreneur magazine as a 2011 future-proof tech trend and cited by The Wall Street Journal in its 2010 Technology Innovations Awards.
