When we launched the AV Series a few years ago, ADJ disrupted the LED video panel market by introducing a product – the AV6 – that had the brightness and resolution to make a serious impact at a price point that made LED video wall technology accessible for users and applications where it had previously been cost prohibitive. Since then the AV Series has expanded to include the high resolution AV3 and weatherproof AV4IP, expanding your options for affordable and reliable LED video panels. However, at ADJ, we’re always looking to push the boundaries to provide even more creative tools to our customers, which is why we are very proud to introduce our new range of LED video panels, the innovative Design Series.
Based on the same foundations as the AV Series – quality, reliability and affordability – the Design Series offers a new dimension of creative potential. This innovative system comprises four modular panels of different shapes that can be combined together to create video screens of almost any conceivable size and shape. The DS4 (square), DS4T (triangle), DS4QC (quarter circle) and DS4HC (rectangle) can be easily linked together to create eye-catching video walls that fit perfectly with the shape of any venue, stage set or mobile lighting rig.
Offering a pixel pitch of 4.8mm, the Design Series panels utilize 3-in-1 SMD2020 LEDs to generate a brightness of 1200 NITS. The square panel has a pixel density of 104 x 104, which is equivalent to 43,264 per square meter, and the others have an equivalent density applied to their specific shapes and sizes. The panels have a recommended minimum viewing distance of 12.5ft. (3.8m) as well as a wide viewing angle of 160-degrees (horizontal) and 120-degrees (vertical), making them ideal for a wide variety of applications.
Designed for both fixed installations and one-off/touring productions, the Design Series panels feature a cleverly conceived locking system that makes it easy to join together multiple panels into screens of all shapes and sizes. Each panel is fitted with retractable plastic locking bars on their top and left sides, which slide into matching holes on the bottom and right sides of neighboring panels. A quarter turn on the end of each bar then locks the panels securely in place, while the process is quick and easy to reverse to break apart the screen for transport and storage.
To further speed up setup and pack-down, each panel is fitted with locking powerCON mains and etherCON signal sockets on one side and matching trailing cables on the other. These are long enough to reach the corresponding sockets on neighboring panels, which has two advantages over systems that feature sockets for both inputs and outputs. First, setting up and dismantling a screen is made quicker, as only half the number of sockets need to be connected/removed and there is no need to coil and pack away loose cords. Second, it is not necessary to purchase power and data cables separately, which will amount to a significant saving if you are investing in a sizeible Design Series setup.
Adding to the flexibility and portability of the Design Series, the panels are also extremely lightweight. The DS4 (Square) unit is only 12 lbs. (5.5 kgs), while the other smaller panels weigh even less. A full system of accessories – including video processors, rigging bars, cables, connectors and road cases – are also available. This includes a case that allows square panels to be stored and transported while connected together in pairs, further reducing the time required to setup and dismantle a large multi-panel display.
With the Design Series we’re opening up a whole new world of possibilities for creative video setups. Custom-designed LED screens with curves and slants are now incredibly simple to create, both for fixed installations and temporary setups. Whether you’re a production designer looking to integrate video into a large-scale stage set or a mobile entertainer who wants to display music videos and slideshows creatively at your events, the Design Series is the perfect solution. Equally, due to its versatility and portability, it is ideal if you run a production/rental company and are looking for a flexible LED video system that can be deployed in different shapes and sizes depending on the requirements of each individual event.
