Two NanoLumens® displays were used on the black carpet to welcome guests to the after-party of an advanced screening of “Skyfall,” the new James Bond movie. The screening was held to raise funds for Dignitas International.
NORCROSS, GEORGIA, November 13, 2012 — It’s not often that a company can say that they came to the aid of James Bond, but that’s exactly what NanoLumens® did recently when two of its high tech NanoFlex™ 112” displays were featured on the black carpet of an after-party for a Toronto charity screening of the 23rd James Bond film, “Skyfall.” The screening was held to benefit Dignitas International, a medical humanitarian organization dedicated to providing a quality of life with dignity for children, youth and families affected by HIV/AIDS in the developing world.
NanoLumens, the pioneering Georgia-based company that introduced the world’s first large format flexible LED display technology, provided the special event with two NanoFlex™ 112 displays that were showcased prominently on a 10-foot tower adjacent to the front entrance, and brought the black carpet to the next level of sophistication. The NanoFlex displays were used to show Skyfall’s theatrical trailer, and promotional ads for a new 007-themed cologne.
According to Chris Tampin, Key Account Executive/Designer at APG Displays, NanoLumens’ Canadian distributor, the event organizers were looking for a display setup that would make the after-party shine from the moment the guests arrived, and NanoLumens’ NanoFlex displays were the perfect choice.
“Anyone who knows anything about James Bond knows that the legendary British spy loves and relies upon the very latest in technology of all sorts in his never-ending quest to thwart evil and save the world,” said Tampin. “Knowing this, it was important that everything about this charity event reflect and amplify the high tech atmosphere of the film — and the NanoFlex displays did exactly that!
“The NanoFlex displays were chosen for the event precisely because they could be incorporated creatively into the event design. Everyone, from the event organizers to the guests, was amazed with the quality and brightness of the displays.”
“NanoFlex displays are a state-of-the-art display technology that is unlike anything else in the market today, making them the obvious choice for their after-party,” said Josh Byrd, Director of Marketing at NanoLumens. “Like the legendary Bond himself, NanoFlex displays are able to do what was previously thought to be impossible.”
Dignitas International recently hosted the advanced screening at the Scotiabank Theater in Toronto, and drew more than 350 guests, who attended the screening and ended the night at the Skyfall After-Party at The Spoke Club in downtown Toronto. The event, supported in large part by Presenting Sponsors IMAX and EON Productions, raised more than $150,000 in support of Dignitas International’s life-saving frontline care and research efforts in Africa.
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 NanoFlex line 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. NanoLumens’ technology also received the 2011 Breakthrough Technology of the Year Award at the American Technology Awards.
