Nashville, July 8, 2013 —Innovators of the industry’s most flexible, lightweight and durable LED video screens, PixelFLEX announced today the introduction of its Light Rigid 8 (LR-8). Offering an exceptionally bright and crisp picture that is rated for complete outdoor use and featuring an extremely thin construction, which makes it easy to assemble, disassemble and store, the LR-8 is ideal for permanent outdoor installations and touring applications.
Key features of PixelFLEX’s newest LED product include 8mm resolution, a 140 degree vertical and horizontal viewing angle, Powercon and Ethernet connectors, and a per tile weight of approximately 17 lbs. Additionally, with 281 trillion colors available and a lifespan of 100,000 hours, the LR-8 presents optimal flexibility and durability to customers seeking to maximize viewer engagement.
“Much like our LR-4, which we recently unveiled at InfoComm, the LR-8 was developed to meet the industry’s demand for higher video resolution with ease of installation,” said Jeremy Byrd, president and founder of PixelFLEX. “Where the LR-8 differs is in its performance in outdoor applications. While the system can be used by touring musicians on the road or in multi-use theatre environments, the LR-8 is also perfect for outdoor installations, where sharpness and clarity of picture are critical to the viewer’s experience.”
Videos and images can be sent to PixelFLEX’s LR-8 through a variety of connections, including DVI, HDMI, VGA, SDI, HD-SDI, Composite, S-video or Component.
“With the introduction of our LR-8 video screen, PixelFLEX is expanding its customer-base to include sports and entertainment venues looking for high quality and durable LED solutions that maximize flexibility of use,” Byrd continued. “Whether it’s showing video replays of a tremendous catch or images of memorabilia available at the stadium’s fan store, the LR-8 is a multifunctional solution that can meet a variety of needs.”
