LEDVision (Pty) ltd, South Africa's top full-service LED rental provider, has just taken delivery of the latest in a string of technological acquisitions that continues to set them apart in the LED arena.

“We are now able to rent high resolution indoor screen to our clients, in the form of 105sqm of ROE Visual BP3 screen product, with an HD pixel pitch of 3.9mm. Known as Black Pearl, this product offers the same award-winning tile design as its predecessor, the Black Onyx and is powered by Tessera LED processing - a cutting-edge system from Brompton Technology.

It makes use of Tessera management software, which provides a user-friendly yet powerful interface for controlling all aspects of the system.

Along with a built-in scaler and de-interlacer, users can benefit from real-time adjustment of position, rotation, color, brightness of panels and high-spec video performance with 3G-SDI input.

“The product features a high refresh rate, outstanding colour processing and great contrast ratio, as well as a fast and simple assembly system, which makes it equally well suited to music concerts, exhibitions, corporates and conferences" explains LEDVision's Graeme Baker.

The LEDVision team has noted a growing awareness of high resolution screen in the South African market, and has engaged directly with their existing clients to determine their specific requirements. “This new product means that we can give our clients a larger variety of products to suit their needs and strengthens our culture of providing creative, technical solutions as opposed to merely technical supply. The product will also relieve our stock demand somewhat."

The product arrives towards the end of May 2016.

Along with the new screen acquisition, LEDVision is taking delivery of 600m of ROE Strip product. “The strip LED was first requested for an advertisement shoot and has since gained popularity as a scenic element on events like Ultrafest," says Graeme. “The strips are flexible and lightweight, with many variations in length and light coverage. This product gives us an additional linear creative dimension for LED usage on live events. The strips can be applied on just about any surface - from a car roof to set edging - to create interest and movement. We look forward to producing some unusual eye-candy with these in the near future."

Graeme believes that ROE has been leading the way with creative LED for a while now and has seen a rise in the prevalence of this product on the international circuit of late. “ROE's ability to curve is a great example of their creative thinking. The latest investments give LEDVision a healthy stock holding of ROE product and strengthens our already flourishing relationship with ROE" he says.
