PixelFLEX Adds FLEXLite to Growing Line of LED Screens

The new FLEXLite tile, perfect for installs, weighs just 28 pounds.

Nashville, April 16, 2014 — Leading LED screen manufacturer PixelFLEX has introduced another product in their diverse, growing line of flexible, lightweight and durable LED video screens with the addition of the FLEXLite LED tile. Available in both indoor and outdoor options, FLEXLite was designed for clients who asked for an economical solution to meet their needs for permanent installations and lightweight event screens.

The indoor version comes in pitches of 3.0, 5.2, 6.9 and 7.8 mm and is great for tradeshows, other events and signage. Where FLEXLite really outdistances the competition, however, is its abitlity to translate for television broadcasts. Because of its extremely high refresh rate, FLEXLite is camera friendly and an ideal solution for televised and filmed events.

In outdoor situations like advertising and large music or sporting events, FLEXLite is bright enouh to compete with sunlight. A dedicated outdoor product that comes in both blowthrough and non-blowthrough designs allows the customer to have even more creative control. It is manufactured in pitches of 6.25, 8.9 and 12.0 mm with brightness of 5,000 nits.

The universal appeal of FLEXLite, both indoor and outdoor, lies in its practicality. The frame is made of die cast aluminum, resulting in a lightweight yet durable tile that weighs 28 pounds each. PixelFLEX has taken all of the aspects it has been known for in its touring products and transformed them into a single product that makes sense for installation. It can be installed and dismantled by one person, making FLEXLite time and labor efficient. The LED panel also comes in a rectangle shape — versus the traditional square — and consequently covers more space with less tiles.

“We saw a demand from our customers asking for a product like FLEXLite,” said Director of Marketing David Venus. “It was our goal to create a product that not only fit the lightweight and durable characteristics of the PixelFLEX brand, but also was an economical choice that looked phenomenal.”

As with PixelFLEX’s existing line of LED video screens, FLEXLite is simple to operate and set up; videos and images can be sent to the screen using any computer with a DVI-D or HDMI connection. In addition, the quality of the FLEXLite screens keep with the standard PixelFLEX holds all of its products to. It uses the latest debugging technology to prohibit issues with gray scale level, allowing for clear, crisp content playback. The LED screen also has a powerful 140 degree viewing angle so more of the audience gets the full impression of the desired content. With FLEXLite, clients get PixelFLEX quality that fits various budgets.

Nashville Production Company First on the East Coast to Gain Clarity Through New Lighting Console

LSC Lighting System's Clarity LX600 Desk

Nashville, March 17, 2014 LSC Lighting Systems, an Australian lighting console design and manufacturing company, sold the second of their Clarity LX600’s to Elite Multimedia Productions (EMP), making it the first console sold to a production house on the east coast.

EMP is a Nashville-based production house that services various audio, video and lighting touring and event needs for notable clients such as Luke Bryan, Dream Theater, Casting Crowns and Chick-Fil-A.

“The LSC Clarity desks are something we’ve been looking at as a company because several clients have asked about it,” said Tom Wilson, EMP VP Event Production. “When Gary Allan’s tour asked about it, it confirmed that it was an exciting decision we wanted to make.”

LSC’s Clarity series of consoles include a number of impressive features including multiple touch screens and programmers, playbacks with FaderIdent™, LED pixel mapping and media server integration. What makes this series stand above the rest however, is the software, which had been in use in the market for more than three years prior to the release of the Clarity desks.

“We tested the software and got a lot of people using it without building the actual console,” said LSC President Rob Steel. “Most people do this the other way around, but it was a lot easier to get the product to market that way and get the bugs rung out of it. So when it came out a year ago, it pretty much came out the door working.”

EMP is eager to continue a relationship with LSC as they continue to grow and expand their client market in 2014 and beyond.
