Prysm’s Laser Phosphor Display Transforms Barneys New York Window into Gaga’s Workshop for the Holidays

San Jose, CA- November 22- Digital display innovator, Prysm, announced today that the company’s Laser Phosphor Display (LPD) technology was selected to help transform the windows at Barneys New York Madison Avenue flagship store into “Gaga’s Workshop”, a unique take on Santa’s iconic holiday workshop. Among the holiday window displays inspired by Lady Gaga and designed in collaboration with Nicola Formichetti, Prysm’s curved 8-foot by 5-foot video-wall is featured in the sole digital installation of Gaga’s Workshop. Titled “Gaga Constellation” and located in a street-level window next to the store’s front door, Prysm’s LPD wall provides a display platform that engages and interacts with Barneys’ shoppers and passers-by. The LPD wall features live Twitter messages sent by Barneys’ customers and the general public.

“Barneys New York and Lady Gaga signify high end, cutting edge creativity and design,” said Prysm’s VP of Global Sales and Service, Dana Corey. “Being selected to participate in this year’s holiday design as the project’s sole digital installation is a true demonstration of the quality and possibilities Prysm’s LPD technology offers.”

Selected for Prysm’s seamless, vibrant, captivating display imagery, the LPD video-wall illuminates and brings the “Gaga Constellation” window to life. With social media being an important communication tool for Lady Gaga and her fans, incorporating live messages via Twitter was an instrumental part of this campaign that Prysm’s LPD video-wall makes possible. Inspired by the theme “message in a bottle” Gaga fans, Barneys’ customers and passers-by are invited to spread holiday cheer and send Tweets that will be displayed on Prysm’s video-wall to transform the “Gaga Constellation” window into an interactive experience. Prysm’s video-wall also showcases a 90-second film directed by Tim Richardson featuring Lady Gaga morphing into and out of various star formations.

“Prysm’s seamless, vibrant video-display allowed the team to create a powerful, captivating, interactive environment that people passing by will be unable to turn away from,” said Nicola Formichetti, creative director of Gaga’s Workshop. “And because Gaga is so connected to her ‘Little Monsters’, the digital display had to both bring Gaga to life while also interact with her ’street audience’- a difficult task Prysm’s display does flawlessly.”

Opening at 11:59pm on November 21st, Gaga’s Workshop is on display at Barneys New York through January 2nd.

Prysm’s LPD solutions break away from traditional display technologies by offering freeform flexibility, long-lasting performance, lifelike, lifesize and HD imagery that captivates audiences in any setting. Built on solid-state lasers that deliver brilliant image quality and the fastest video content, Prysm’s displays provide striking video viewable from 178-degrees. Running off of a standard 110V outlet and using up to 75% less power than traditional backlit or projection technology-based products, Prysm’s displays create high impact brand experiences without the need for special power or cooling infrastructure.

NanoLumens NanoFlex Displays Provide Live Video Outdoors At Ontario’s 2011 Remembrance Day Event



NORCROSS, GEORGIA, November 17, 2011
— What are you going to do when you have an outdoor ceremony and need a large, waterproof digital video display that can be set up and taken down quickly? The answer, as APG Displays found, is NanoLumens® 112” NanoFlex™ display. APG Displays, NanoLumens’ exclusive Canadian distributor, supplied two NanoFlex displays to their trade partner Mediaco when Mediaco was called upon to provide a digital video solution for Ontario’s 2011 Remembrance Day ceremony.

Remembrance Day, also known as Armistice Day, is a memorial day that honors all veterans by remembering their selfless courage and commitment on the anniversary of the end of World War I. The 2011 Ontario ceremony featured a speech by Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty and was held November 11 at the Ontario Veterans Memorial at Queen’s Park, Toronto.

According to APG Displays Vice President David Weatherhead, “When Mediaco came to us and said they needed two outdoor displays large enough to be seen from hundreds of feet away, that could be put up and taken down in a single day, the only solution was the NanoLumens 112” NanoFlex flexible display. It’s the only display that satisfies all the needs of this kind of event—it’s easy to put up quickly because it’s very lightweight, it’s super bright so it can be viewed in direct sunlight, it’s viewable from any angle with no loss in picture quality, it’s durable and waterproof for outdoor applications, and it’s more energy efficient than any other display technology available today. And because the NanoFlex display is compatible with virtually all video input sources, using it as a live video display is just as easy as hooking it up to a DVD player.”

According to Karen Robinson, NanoLumens SVP of Marketing and Sales, “With our lightweight, super-bright displays, event producers can now quickly and easily provide large video displays for short events and multi-day festivals. With the ability to move NanoLumens displays from day to day, reduced manpower requirements and significant energy savings over other display technologies, we offer the most portable, versatile and profitable digital video displays available today.”

First introduced in 2010, NanoFlex™ digital displays remain the only solution of their kind. They conform to fit any surface, are thin, lightweight and energy efficient, and can be mounted as easily as a work of art. NanoLumens is the only company in the world able to reliably manufacture ultra-thin and lightweight, easy-to-install and maintain, seamless 6mm pixel pitch flexible LED displays in virtually any shape or size to meet each customer’s unique requirements.

Designed and assembled entirely in the United States, NanoLumens displays are now available in both flexible and non-flexible frames in four product lines: NanoFlex™ and NanoWrap™ flexible displays; NanoSlim™ non-flexible rectangular displays; and NanoShape™ non-flexible round, square, and triangular displays.

NanoLumens NanoFlex Screen Keeps Thousands of Attendees Informed and Organized at UK’s GAMEfest 2011


NORCROSS, GEORGIA, October 31, 2011—When UK audio visual provider PSP (pspav.com) was contracted to provide large digital signage for navigation and information display at GAMEfest 2011, they knew that the NanoLumens® 112” NanoFlex™ display was the perfect solution. The annual week long gaming expo was hosted by GAME, Europe’s leading videogame retailer (www.game.co.uk) at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, England from September 16-18, 2011.

GAMEfest is an exclusive event for loyal GAME Rewards Card holders that welcomes some of the top names in gaming such as Nintendo, EA and Activision to exhibit their new games and new technologies. The first three days of GAMEfest served as an internal conference for the hundreds of GAME & GAMESTATION store managers, and the next three days the show floor was open to thousands of card-carrying GAME customers.

According to PSP’s Project Planner Gareth Hill, “With thousands of people attending, and three entire halls of the NEC in use, it was imperative to provide the best possible displays for navigating the show floor and communicating the timings of various activities taking place each day.

“This was the first time we have used the 112” NanoLumens screen at a live event, and it is a great product,” Hill emphasized. “We selected the technology largely due to the brightness of the display and its weight—at just 90 pounds it was very easy and quick to install, and the 6mm pixel pitch and brightness meant that it could be seen from all the way across the exhibition hall.”

Because the NanoLumens NanoFlex™ display is so lightweight and durable, it can be installed much faster and more easily than comparably sized displays. And it is perfect for outdoors or large rooms because of its extreme brightness. In addition to being ultra-lightweight and bright, NanoLumens displays can be viewed from any angle or any distance without color shift or picture drop-off.

“There is an increasing demand for high quality, large scale digital platforms at events and exhibitions, whether their application be wayfinding and information giving or advertising and brand awareness. It’s great to have access to new, innovative options for these purposes, and the NanoLumens NanoFlex display really delivers, with specialist flight cases and accessories that make it simple and cost effective to incorporate into the event environment.”

First introduced in 2010, NanoFlex™ digital displays remain the only solution of their kind. They conform to fit any surface, are thin, lightweight and energy efficient, and can be mounted as easily as a work of art. NanoLumens is the only company in the world able to reliably manufacture ultra-thin and lightweight, easy-to-install and maintain, seamless 6mm pixel pitch flexible LED displays in virtually any shape or size to meet each customer’s unique requirements.

According to NanoLumens President & CEO Rick Cope, “Convention hall owners and show producers are now realizing the unique benefits of the NanoLumens display technology. With the ability to move NanoLumens displays to where they will have the most impact, quicker installation times, reduced manpower requirements and significant energy savings, we offer convention hall owners, show producers and exhibitors the most customizable and profitable digital signage displays available today.”

Designed and assembled entirely in the United States, NanoLumens displays are now available in both flexible and non-flexible frames in four product lines: NanoFlex™ and NanoWrap™ flexible displays; NanoSlim™ non-flexible rectangular displays; and NanoShape™ non-flexible round, square, and triangular displays.
