Unique LED display will be the hub of Canopy Street's newest entertainment district
Irvine, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/19/2013 --Panasonic Eco Solutions North America selected Lighthouse Technologies Limited to provide the LED display panels in the construction of “The Cube," in Lincoln, Nebraska's Railyard entertainment district, the West Haymarket development called Canopy Street.
Canopy Street (www.canopyst.com) is planned as an entertainment and living district, with combined retail and housing conveniently located together. Part of the development will feature an open courtyard area, known as "The Railyard," and will be surrounded with retail and restaurant space on three sides. The Railyard will be used for various public events, including seasonal festivals, sports parties (such as live broadcasts of Nebraska football games), and movie nights. The Cube is expected to play a central role in showcasing art, seasonal touches, sports events and highlights and even movies on select nights.
For The Cube, Panasonic used two waterproof Lighthouse Impact 16 LED video displays. The IMPACT 16, a 16mm pixel pitch Surface Mount Display (SMD) LED panel, shines with a brilliant 6000 nits of brightness, utilizes the first outdoor SMD LED chip, and features intelligent IM design for superior flatness. Exceptional color reproduction and clarity come standard, and image quality and uniformity are delivered with Lighthouse’s hallmark excellence.
"Considering the variety of events The Cube will present," said Ed Whitaker, General Manager of Lighthouse N.A.S.A, "the IMPACT 16 is a perfect choice. For an entertainment venue such as the Railyard, presenting events with light qualities as different as feature films and football games, the IMPACT 16 is tough to beat."
The first display on the north facing structure stands 35.3 feet long by 15.1 feet high. The display on the adjacent west-facing structure measures at 13.9 feet long by 15.1 feet high. Both outdoor LED displays will be used for video images, feeds, and digital advertising, as well as real-time content such as still images, animations, and live video.
"Teaming with Panasonic Eco Solutions," Whitaker added, "enables us to do unique projects such as the Railyard Cube. As Lighthouse expands into the retail sector, The Cube will help demonstrate the versatility and flexibility of Lighthouse technology."
