Aoto had a very large, curved LED display with a 1.7mm pixel pitch – each panel with 6,000 cd/m² of brightness. It was very similar to the 1.2mm product that was being shown at ISE this year. On the subject of ISE, we asked about the 65″ LED ‘TV’ that the company was showing at the exhibition and heard that development is progressing – it is “about 80% of the way” towards finalisation.
Gloshine is a relatively new Chinese LED maker – founded in 2006 – which has products ranging from a 1.6mm pitch to 15.6mm. At Plasa, the company was showing its 3.9mm and 5.9mm displays. The 5.9mm tiles were shown as both a video wall and a floor. Although the company makes its own LEDs, it was showing them off using content from Skyworth and Innolux! We feel sure that these companies wouldn’t have approved the use, as the pictures were very fuzzy.
UK-based YSLV began life as Yorkshire Light and Sound in 1986. Since then, however, the light and sound parts of the business have shrunk while video has grown. Now, the company is a hire specialist for LED screens, video walls and AV technology. It was showing off a new 2.5mm-pitch LED display on the stand, and getting a lot of attention for having taken over the entrance to the Excel centre, placing an arch of LED displays around and above the doors.
