VOD Visual launches the industry’s first fine-pitch LED display

VOD Visual has launched the first fine-pitch LED display with direct HDMI connectivity.

Edge Connect scales and mirrors video content from connected devices, eliminating the need for LED display control systems, send and receive boards, and complex video infrastructure. Featuring accessible HDMI ports, it allows users to easily and quickly connect standard video playback devices directly to the display. As a result, content can be instantly transmitted without scaling issues to a seamless display of any shape and size.

As with all Edge Series models, the Edge Connect features 55″ panels which, as the largest die-cast cabinets on the market, are designed as a viable replacement for LCD screens. The lightweight displays are four times faster to install, can be wall-mounted for quick deployment, and snap together seamlessly to create scalable setups. As a result, Edge Connect makes LED display technology competitive with its LCD counterparts for digital signage, corporate and educational applications.

The Edge Series is the first to be upgradeable while keeping 80% of the components in place, extending product life to over 11 years. LED modules can be easily replaced without changing the underlying infrastructure, so a 2.5mm pixel pitch display can become a 1.2mm screen, providing a cost effective solution for improving the quality of the image permanently.

The Edge’s green credentials also extend to the recycling process. With only a quarter of the internals of other ranges and plastic-free parts, it reduces the impact of e-waste. Additionally, the Edge features significantly reduced power consumption capabilities, while superior thermal management technology creates a cool-to-the-touch screen, making it an environmentally friendly solution.

“Edge Connect is a critical innovation to streamline the transition from LCD to LED and make it more viable,” said Rob Bint, General Manager of VOD Visual. “The entire Edge line offers unrivaled capabilities that are durable and energy efficient. Featuring low power consumption technology, usage is reduced by up to 75% for extended product life to over 100,000 operating hours. It has front serviceability and is three times brighter than LCD. Additionally, it features high dynamic range, high refresh rates, and a wide Rec. 709. Image reproduction is lifelike, crisp and does not fade or distort in any ambient light. This, coupled with the enhanced connectivity option, is what the industry has been waiting for to ease the transition from LCD video walls.

Edge Connect can be experienced at booth 3F230 in Hall 3 at ISE 2022.
