Elation Releases EPV6 6mm Tri-LED Display Panel
Posted on Wednesday, December 7th, 2011
The new EPV6 LED display panel from Elation Professional is designed to take high-resolution video to a higher level. Equipped with three-in-one tri-color SMD LEDs, this 6mm indoor video panel features 2,500-nit brightness and a wide viewing angle (H 140 degrees/ V 110 degrees), to produce extraordinarily clear, sharp high-res videos, graphics, text, special effects, or any other images.
The unit’s slim cabinet design and light weight (just 31 lbs) make it easy to transport and fit into a variety of applications, the company says. Integrated on-board power and data, along with fast and easy panel-to-panel connections, allow users to quickly assemble a video screen of any size, the company adds. This makes the EPV6 a suitable high-res LED video solution for concert, touring, television and stage productions; trade shows and corporate events; and restaurants, nightclubs, hotels, churches, airports, and other permanent installations.
A member of Elation’s EPV Pro Video Series, the EPV6 offers the perfect blend of professional video quality and user functionality, said Eric Loader, director of sales for Elation Professional. “Our EPV Series was created with the goal of providing the most innovative, creative and professional LED and broadcast video products. Within this series, the EPV6 was designed to be the ultimate high-resolution indoor LED video solution,” said Loader. “Features like 2,500-nit brightness, 16-bit processing, and a high 2,000Hz refresh rate produce stellar quality video with high contrast levels and flicker-free performance, while the panel’s compact size and seamless mechanical system make it easy to transport and rig virtually anywhere. The EPV6 gives end-users the best of both worlds — performance and on-the-job convenience.”
Each EPV6 panel comes equipped with Ethercon input/output for the video signal, with either port having the capability to be used as an input or output, allowing for extreme versatility in set-up. The panel also features Powercon in/out for power link. Additionally, each panel includes its own built-in multi-voltage electronic power supply offering 100-240V auto switching power.
Featuring a 6mm pixel pitch, the EPV6 contains 96×96 pixels (total 9,216 pixels) per panel and a total of 27,777 pixels per square meter. Minimum viewing distance for a crystal clear image is 16.5′. The panel’s high-output three-in-one SMD LEDs measure 3.5mm x 2.8mm and have a long-life rating of 100,000 hours, for reliable low-maintenance operation.
An integrated rigging system with fly bar and an optional ground support structure is also available, offering multiple set-up options
Another benefit of the EPV6 is its energy efficiency, which makes the video screen very economical to operate. Each panel consumes just 390W of electricity at maximum use, and 255W at average.
Rated IP20 for indoor use, each EPV6 panel measures a square 22.7″ x 22.7″ The unit is CE-approved, and has recently been granted cETLus approval by Interetek.
