Leyard Adds DirectLight LED Video Walls

Leyard has formally announced the latest version of its DirectLight LED video wall displays with 0.9, 1.2, 1.5 and 1.8 millimeter pixel pitches and intended for control rooms and other applications where viewers will be close. The panels have been designed with a 16:9 format and with a 27″ diagonal that allows exact configurations in FullHD, UltraHD and 8K The cabinets have been designed to be installed and serviced from the front. Leyard’s EasyAlign mounting system has six axis adjustments for alignment of any size video wall array. The displays also allow for LED video walls that are less than four inches (101.6 mm) in total depth, achieving compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The displays can be installed to create concave curved video walls, wrapped 90-degree corner video walls and support video walls tilted forward up to 10 inches (254 mm).

The power supply module is remotely located and can be fitted in a 19″ rack. Leyard claims that the power supply offers fault tolerance features that are unparalleled in the LED industry, including n+1 redundancy, hot-swappable power modules and circuit-level redundancy. The DirectLight RPS comes in two versions, allowing for greater power density and minimized rack unit requirements.

The new series will start to ship early in 2017, but pricing was not revealed.

Analyst Comment

We calculate the highest resolution version of the cabinet at 640 x 360, allowing FullHD in a 3 x 3 array with dimensions of 70.6″ x 39.7″ [179 x 100cm] and 81″ diagonal. The design concept of the range shows that the LED makers have the LCD video wall market in their sights as matching standard resolutions will make system and content design simpler. (BR)
