Brick-and-mortar institutions are under tremendous pressure to compete with the surge in the online learning industry. Investing in education-based technologies such as video walls provides an excellent way to attract tech-savvy students to campuses. Video walls provide a collaborative learning environment that dissipates information faster than traditional methods. Moreover, they highlight an educational institution’s commitment to the role of technology in education and indicate a willingness to meet the highest standards in imparting education.

Statistics indicate 38% of students prefer not be away from technology for more than ten minutes. Over 50 percent of students prefer areas of education that use technology. Moreover, 96 percent of students notice digital signage instantaneously, and its interactive nature helps 60 percent of students recall lessons many days after exposure. Brick-and-mortar institutions that invest in LED signage have a clear edge over other institutions. LED signage fosters higher enrollment numbers.

Digital signage advances the learning process and is cost-effective in the long-run. For example, in 2014, Saint Louis University saved $75,000 on a seven-year basis by switching to video walls from high-performance projectors for its medical school imaging applications. Video walls not only offer 24/7, 365-days-a-year support and lower costs, but also become the showstoppers of the space they inhabit. These walls create a platform for research and development and provide means for conveying vital information about emergencies or threats within thirty minutes (as mandated by law). Moreover, solutions that combine multiple tasks in the same system can significantly benefit the institution by engaging current and prospective students, alumni, faculty, and administration for academic excellence.

Online universities have been a game-changer in higher education, which makes it necessary to capitalize on every opportunity to draw students. Video walls afford a natural edge in this regard. The future of digital signage is promising, and companies like PixelFLEX can create unique solutions customized to specific campuses and their goals. PixelFLEX LED displays produce clear and detailed imaging. Screens of nearly any size and shape are possible. One clear benefit of LED signage for universities is their versatility. Messages can be changed in an instant, and PixelFLEX can assist campus administrators in configuring, updating and troubleshooting from anywhere – their office, or remotely, using a web-based configuration tool. Our desire to improve the campus experience and build communities will prevail with new technology and inventions that can revolutionize learning.

In a world of ever-increasing tuition costs, the students’ school of choice should not only be best for them academically but also worth their investment. Universities around the country have used digital signage to create a powerful impression on prospective students. Large, dynamic and engaging video walls create ‘showpieces’ on campuses, which provide an instant appeal to visitors. Award-winning displays from PixelFLEX can be customized to your needs and vision in seamless LED, with clear and detailed imaging. PixelFLEX has an extensive range of creative solutions ranging from 2-100mm indoor, outdoor and curvable configurations. To learn more, visit PixelFLEXLED.com today!

Chalkboards are slowly becoming a thing of the past on college campuses as many institutions of higher learning are transitioning to digital. Crisp, brilliant LED displays can now be found in lecture halls, libraries, sports arenas, and campus centers. These stunning screens not only provide an effective method for message delivery, they can also increase a space’s aesthetic appeal when seamlessly melded with their environment to create must-view works of art.

It’s estimated that over 20 million students enrolled in American colleges and universities in the fall of 2016, the vast majority of whom grew up with a digital childhood.[1] These teenagers and early twenty-somethings spent their formative years staring at pixelated computer, tablet, and mobile phone screens. They are accustomed to technology, and even except it in most places they venture, including school. Thoughtful educators are aware that these pupils excel in digital environments, and have adopted LED displays and video walls as ways of attracting students and helping them succeed. Digital technology in classrooms allows for a dynamic educational experience and encourages a high level of student engagement. Video walls in advanced libraries and laboratories facilitate collaboration among students and faculty, and promote interactive learning.

Modern digital displays are energy efficient, and because content can be easily updated with a few keystrokes, they prove more cost effective than traditional paper messaging. They are ideal for broadcasting all types of media around campus, from school announcements, lunch menus, to time-critical alerts. Animated graphics are better at grabbing eyeballs than static images, making digital displays the superior method for message dissemination. As a wayfinding tool, they can replace maps to help newcomers and visitors navigate a campus more easily. And they can even be used to generate advertising revenue, yielding an even greater return on investment.

High-resolution LED screens are excellent recruitment tools. Adding them to campus centers can make schools more attractive in the eyes of prospective students who value technology. They can also transform locker rooms, dazzling coveted sports recruits, alumni and boosters who are willing to generously donate to ensure their team is best equipped to win  championships and increase enrollment.

PixelFLEX has a large variety of award winning LED screens to bring the latest digital technology to college campuses. Our display systems provide clear and detailed imaging for superior content delivery that enhances the educational experience. We have a large range of creative solutions ranging from 2-100mm in indoor, outdoor and curvable configurations that can blend seamlessly and beautifully into any campus space. Our process begins with your vision, which we use to create a unique, instrumental and artistic masterpiece.

Designer Dave Boots and programmer Trevor Drawdy create a new production design for the well-known country quartet using FLEXCurtain HD 12.5mm LED video

Nashville, 2/20/2017 – Known worldwide for their distinctive four-part harmonies, The Oak Ridge Boys have created dozens of Country smash-hits and have earned a number of industry awards. Continuing their four decades of tradition, the group recently embarked on their latest nationwide tour, but this time they decided to bring a new LED video system along for the ride. Headed by production designer Dave Boots, the design team wanted the new system to inject a completely new energy into the high-energy and colorful production design, and they were able to create that energy using FLEXCurtain HD 12.5mm LED video from PixelFLEX.

“This was the groups 27th Annual Christmas tour and this is my 23rd tour with the band,” began production designer Dave Boots. “As far as the video goes this was a completely new production design, but while the original plan was for one big wall behind the band, I wanted a bit more creativity. I’ve always liked the idea of using multiple LED walls, so we went with a 12 foot wide by 8 foot high main wall, two additional vertical walls on both the left and right, and then four panels on the front of the risers on stage. We then added Christmas trees lit by LED fixtures in between all the FLEXCurtain LED walls, and when it all came together, it really looked great.

The Parnelli Award-winning FLEXCurtain HD is a lightweight and flexible LED video screen ideal for high resolution video playback and video effects for a wide range of touring and live event applications. Its hi-res LED video can be driven by any DVI output, and the multi-directional, flexible design makes it easy to store and transport. FLEXCurtain HD is 60-90% lighter than the competition, and using the quick-lock system, 500 square feet of FLEXCurtain HD can be set up and broken down in under 15 minutes.

“As our tour manager started speaking with Elite Multimedia about their various PixelFLEX products, we really liked how compact the FLEXCurtain HD would be and how easy it would be to set-up and tear down each night,” continued Boots. “They really helped us find the ideal LED video system for our production design and at the right budget.”

With the FLEXCurtain HD 12.5mm LED video technology now in the show, Boots and the team got straight to work on completing the new design. Since the LED video was a sort of last-minute addition to the gear list, Boots would not have very long before the first audience was in the house.

“We took the PixelFLEX gear to Branson, Missouri, for our rehearsals and then we had two days to set-up and complete the design. To help us with the content and programming, we brought on Trevor Drawdy who did an amazing job and deserves a lot of credit. We used an Arkaos media server to drive the system and we literally finished the programming an hour and a half before the first show, but it really worked out well.”

Now that the show was complete, it was time for Boots to enjoy the show. Knowing how hard the production team worked, he was extremely pleased with the new production design for the Grammy, Dove, CMA, and ACM award winners.

“The FLEXCurtain HD absolutely enhanced and changed our touring production design,” concluded Boots. “I’ve always been pleased with the tour, but this year everyone worked very hard and we really took it to a completely new level. When our executive producer Jon Mir was taking photos, he commented on how impressed he was with the LED video panels and how it all blended together for a beautiful new production design. The FLEXCurtain HD really made the show bigger and it was very exciting to see.”

An incredible LED display can revolutionize your sales. With eye-grabbing visuals and unique designs, there’s a lot to love about digital signage. The problem, however, is that for far too long companies have been unable to provide outdoor displays that function properly. Sure, they might look great when they are first installed, but as soon as a rain storm shows up the display goes down.

One solution is to call someone to service the display, but this is easier said than done. Often the entire display has to be dismantled just to access the small part that needs to be repaired. This comes from a tendency to simply rebrand indoor LED systems as suitable for outdoors, instead of undergoing the necessary adaptations to withstand the new environment. Without proper design modifications, what are normally high-functioning indoor displays quickly become unreliable, easily damaged and difficult to service outdoor signage.

It can also be difficult to predict what the best settings for a display will be. What might work in bright sunlight would be difficult to see on an overcast day, and your digital displays need to be able to adjust accordingly. Whether you are using outdoor LED displays for advertising, entertainment, or venue information, you run the risk of losing customers or dealing with disgruntled visitors if your display is not able to auto-adjust its brightness so that everyone can easily see your content as outdoor climate changes minute by minute.

At PixelFLEX, our new outdoor permanent Install LED technology FLEXStorm serves as an answer to the problems that have plagued outdoor LED displays. Fully customizable and adapted to provide breathtaking displays both indoors and outside, in any size or shape you need, this latest innovation allows for displays that not only grab the attention of viewers, but are also extremely reliable and durable.

The best part is that, when it comes to servicing the display, we’ve got you covered. Not only are the displays equipped to be serviced completely from the front, but PixelFLEX’s team of experts are dedicated to making our customers’ experiences successful and are able to give you the support you need throughout the entire process concept to finished product. The technology also allows you to update your display at any time, from anywhere, through a cloud-based content management system.

As the need for permanent outdoor LED displays grows across the country, there has been an increase in requests for quality, American-made products and support, and PixelFLEX is more than capable of meeting the demand. With the growing digital experience that is all around us today and by adding FLEXStorm to our line of products, our goal is to help our clients have a one-stop destination for all of their LED video display solutions; indoor or outdoor, permanent install or live production. Regardless of a project’s size or location, PixelFLEX is ready and equipped to provide our customers with the displays they need.

When it comes to signage and displays, nothing turns heads quite like crisp and brilliant LEDs. LED technology has evolved in such a way that makes it more practical, functional, efficient, cost effective, and eco-friendly than printed advertising materials. While many convenience stores, hospitals, schools, restaurants and retailers have installed LED signage indoors, these same organizations are realizing illuminated displays can also be used outdoors for effective message delivery to help drive awareness and foot traffic. But when deploying this type of technology outside, there is some important information to keep in mind to ensure you’re getting the most out of your LED displays.

At PixelFLEX, LED signage and displays are our specialty. We produce a large variety of award-winning LED display systems that offer clear and detailed imaging to suit any situation indoor or out, traditional or creative. As experts, we hold valuable insights into how to make sure your exterior LED lighting solutions are working for you. Here are 5 important tips you should know.

  • Select the right hardware: Outdoor displays can fail during the winter months if you’re located in an area that experiences frigid temperatures. A full outdoor-rated display can withstand direct sun exposure, extreme temperature fluctuations, dust, humidity and condensation, making it the ideal selection for locations that see wide temperature ranges throughout the year.
  • Maintenance Inspections: Exterior signage can suffer damage from the weather, animals, accidents, intentional abuse, and normal wear over time. Routine maintenance inspections of the display’s seals, foundation, wiring, and timing clock for defects are crucial to make sure minor problems don’t evolve into huge headaches.
  • Regulate temperature: LED technology requires an environment that delivers stable temperatures within its enclosure, and operational temperature between 77° F and 5° F. LED displays constantly run throughout the day, and measures must be enacted to avoid overheating, which can leave permanent yellow defects as well as component degradation. Regulating the environment with appropriate Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) measures will ensure reliability even in extreme climate conditions.
  • Safeguard against water: Water penetrating from the outside and moisture within the enclosure can cause damage and display failure. Minimize this risk by using a closed loop air circulation system to fully isolate the display unit. A closed loop system prevents moisture and contaminants from entering the unit and corrupting critical parts.
  • Remote Monitoring: Remote monitoring allows you to manage your signage and react to the first signs of malfunction before a larger issue can arise from worsening conditions. An ideal exterior LED system will give you remote monitoring capabilities to not only see the state of your screen, but to remotely update the screens content as well.

Outdoor LED displays can be difficult to service, offer little weather resistance, and fail to auto adjust brightness. That’s why we have launched FLEXStorm, a weatherproof outdoor LED display for permanent installation. FLEXStorm is fully front serviceable and designed to handle even the most extreme outdoor elements. This robust technology is great for billboards, advertising displays, outdoor entertainment spaces, and wherever vibrant messaging is needed. It is customizable and able to be manufactured in different cabinet sizes to fit your unique requirements. FLEXStorm uses an intelligent auto correcting light sensor control system to ensure the perfect brightness and visibility no matter the exterior conditions.

FLEXStorm is the ideal solution for outdoor advertising, entertainment, and other content broadcasting. To learn more about this reliable, innovative LED solution, visit us online at pixelflexled.com.

In the modern era of retail, customers have grown extremely familiar with online shopping environments, and brick-and-mortar retailers that wish to succeed must adapt their in-person experiences to reproduce the positive aspects of successful online businesses. Regardless of the products being sold, these businesses must develop methods to stay memorable and distinct from their competitors, and create in-store experiences that leave their customers with lasting, positive impressions. To this end, digital LED display technologies have become increasingly more sophisticated over the last several years, with impressive multi-screen displays, streamlined marketing deployment capabilities, and personalized customer-oriented engagement strategies becoming commonplace in many businesses. These technologies have replaced traditional marketing strategies for many successful retailers, providing enjoyable, customizable experiences for consumers and unique, memorable experiences that inspire return visits.

Today, digital LED video displays are not only easily customizable from a design aspect, but for targeting specific target audiences or demographics in real-time. Brands can also implement “smart” sensors capable of scanning customers for various attributes (age, sex, height, etc.) and adjusting their marketing techniques automatically.  For other applications, this technology can allow customers to try on different clothing styles digitally without ever entering a changing room. These “out of the box” strategies produce interactive experiences for customers which are uniquely memorable and inspire repeat customers. Following one-time installation fees, digital LED technologies also offer a higher ROI in the long run by decreasing the recurring fees associated with traditional advertising upkeep, and allowing retail staff to devote their time to other in-house activities. This combination of cost advantage and marketing flexibility is reflected in retail industry trends, where digital content delivery has increased from 9% of total “Out-of-Home” advertising in 2010 to nearly 62% today, as LED technology costs have decreased and retailers have realized how powerful and cost-efficient such techniques can be.

PixelFLEX specializes in developing digital LED video signage and displays for both indoor and outdoor applications, and tailoring these solutions to meet a wide range of business needs with products manufactured in the USA. With their highly customizable digital LED product portfolio, PixelFLEX can help businesses choose video displays that help marketing initiatives and match their particular creative agendas, while providing experiences that inspire return customers. Their products allow businesses the ability to effortlessly (and remotely) adjust product and marketing displays in real-time using digital LED technology, geared toward specific demographics depending on the time of day or retail location. PixelFLEX works with a wide range of architects, designers, engineers and consultants to ensure that its creative solutions are unique for your specific business needs, and capable of providing the sophistication necessary to provide shopping experiences that can meet the needs of diverse target audiences in real-time.  Its award-winning LED systems can be customized for virtually any application, providing high-quality, reliable solutions for your business.  The support and service teams at PixelFLEX are dedicated to ensuring that their products are tailored to meet your requirements, and strive to provide top-tier, customer-focused assistance.

To compete in the modern-day landscape of retail, businesses must ensure that their customers’ experiences are both memorable and enjoyable, and PixelFLEX offers a wide range of customizable LED solutions to meet your needs. Their products can help mimic the online retail experience valued by customers, provide engagement analytics, eliminate printing expenses, and provide unprecedented marketing flexibility.

LED displays increase productivity and educate and entertain customers and there are several exciting new technologies coming down the pike for 2017. Business leaders…stand up and take note: new and improved fine pixel pitch LED display solutions will enable novel applications in many different sectors, including sports venues, retail, restaurants, healthcare, entertainment, and much more. PixelFLEX, an industry leader in digital LED displays & signage, can provided customized indoor and outdoor solutions, all assembled and supported in the U.S.

Trends for 2017

Think of the most visually exciting graphic display ever seen in a sci-fi movie, and chances are excellent the same technology is becoming available to businesses today – at increasingly affordable rates. According to Transparency Marketing Research (TMR), the high initial cost of fine pixel LED technology will fall in coming years as growing competition, along with advances in R&D, work to bring costs down. Look for:

  • Growth of flexible/curveable LED displays, such as the PixelFLEX TrueFLEX, an extremely high-resolution, flexible rubber substrate LED product that can create compound curves, and quickly and securely attaches via magnets to virtually any surface, allowing for a unique no-fan, no-noise design guaranteed to attract attention.
  • More pixels. New enhanced picture, 4K technologies will meet requirements for large-sized ultra-high-definition (UHD) displays in applications such as air traffic control, where every detail counts, as well as command centers and corporate lobbies. PixelFLEX offers ultra-high resolution as low as 1.2mm in the FLEXUltra model. And the company just announced the TrueFLEX 1.9mm pitch option, which is one of the highest resolution flexible LED products now on the market.
  • Virtual reality will become even more popular, and not just for gaming. Applications such as architecture, medicine, military, etc., are expanding rapidly. But VR is not just for headsets. At the September 2016 LDI Conference and Tradeshow in Las Vegas, PixelFLEX demonstrated a true 3D LED visual experience, treating visitors to an Augmented Reality Rave.

“With our new AR-LED technology with Partner 3D Live we can create a visual image that physically and optically comes off the LED screen for a true Augmented Reality experience no matter if you are five or 500 feet away from the source,” said Alex Williams, PixelFLEX Director of Project Management.

PixelFLEX also recently announced a new partnership with SpaceView, an Augmented Reality technology that provides near-instantaneous and accurate product installation renderings.

  • Increased return on investment. LED video walls and screens create impactful first impressions, and showcase professional competencies – and compared with a TV projection wall, maintain brightness much longer, with a 100,000-hour half-life. Stunning new UHD videos will enable branding messages and logos to compete for attention in the age of HD smart phones and tablets.
  • More immersive, interactive, and artistic designs. Merging the digital and physical worlds through the deployment of the FLEXLite NXG displays, curved and flexible displays like TrueFLEX, and the LumiFLEX interactive LED floor,there is the potential for even more creative engagements by both viewers and creators.
  • Memorable, unique experiences. PixelFLEX is continually increasing the functionality of our award-winning LED technologies, whether it’s a captivating trade show experience or a bright, high-performance FLEXCurtain HD LED video wall that requires minimal tech time to pack and unpack on tour. For PixelFLEX, each project is unique, and we pride ourselves on creating custom solutions for each individual customer.

Technical Director Adam Frey works with integration partner REACH Communications to install a 47’ wide FLEXTour LED video wall to complete the sanctuary renovation   

Nashville, 2/8/2017 – Located in Minneapolis, MN, Substance Church (substancechurch.com) is a dynamic multi-site church that believes in doing things a bit differently by pushing the limits of the congregation’s expectations to build a stronger community. In holding true to their foundation, they recently underwent a LED video installation at their Northtown Campus with one of the largest LED video walls in any house of worship known today. Led by Adam Frey, Technical Director for Substance, the church wanted to complete their full production design with a high-resolution and virtually flicker-free LED video solution, so they chose FLEXTour LED video from PixelFLEX, installed by REACH Communications, Inc. (reachcomm.net) of Champlin, MN.

“The project on a whole was a new lighting, projection and LED video installation for our auditorium that was built about a year ago, and this was the final piece of the design for the new space,” began Frey. “Ideally, we wanted an LED wall that could be easily reconfigured for future designs, and we also needed the most flicker-free performance with a high Hertz rate for our live streaming video. We looked at a number of different LED video manufacturers, but when spoke with PixelFLEX they were able to both work within our budget and provide us with the exact type of LED video wall we needed to complete our new worship environment.”

Getting the project underway, Frey began looking at the different LED video manufacturers and their product lines available. Working with integration partner REACH Communications, Frey soon began researching the award-winning line of PixelFLEX LED video technologies and subsequently made the decision to install the FLEXTour video wall.

“Our stage proscenium opening is 48’ wide by 22’ tall, and the final LED video wall ended up being 47.5’ wide by 11.5’ tall with the ability to move up and down as needed,” continued Frey. “Once we decided upon the FLEXTour, we only had about two weeks to complete the project so we worked with REACH Communications to help us complete the installation. Once we had the product on site, everything went exactly as we thought it would and REACH Communications really did a great job.”

As part of integrating the FLEXTour video wall solution, and contributing to the overall flexibility of the system, REACH Communications supplied the motors, motor control panel, box truss and rigging elements of the project.  This adds the capability of raising and lowering the video wall, which is an important feature for Substance Church.

With the LED video installation now complete, it was time for the FLEXTour to show the design team and the church leadership just what a difference it could make. Knowing the capabilities of the product line, Frey was confident it would be met with excitement from all.

“I was excited for everyone to see the FLEXTour in use and when we turned it on, everyone was very impressed with the brightness and high-definition quality of the LED video wall,” explained Frey. “With our live streaming video, we can get down to about a 4-foot square on the LED video wall before we see any pixelation, which is a great zoom distance from where the cameras are positioned, and it looks great on camera.”

Now ready to be shown the full congregation, the FLEXTour LED video wall made its debut at Substance Church during their annual Christmas services. As Christmas is the highest attendances time of the year, Frey was ready to debut the completed production design with the added dimension of creativity provided by the FLEXTour LED technology.

“The first time we used the new LED video wall was on our Christmas service and everyone was amazed at how much it transformed our worship environment,” admitted Frey. “It added a completely new layer to the service making it much more visually engaging through the use of the most current LED video technology.”

Looking back on the design process, Frey is not only complementary of the FLEXTour, but also all the PixelFLEX LED video solutions. After looking at the myriad of options available, he found a few advantages to working with PixelFLEX that can make a successful LED video design possible for other worship environments as well.

“The biggest advantage to working with PixelFLEX is the breadth and flexibility of the product lines they are creating,” concluded Frey. “They are not content to use the same technology over-and-over, but are instead continuing to develop and evolve their products for the betterment of any LED video installation with the best pricing to match.”
