APG Displays to offer ‘backstage’ LED tour at NAB

APG Displays, a distributor and integrator of video walls, today announced that it will be hosting a custom “backstage” LED Display tour at NAB 2016.

The tour, which is being offered for the first time this year, will begin at APG Displays Booth #C11731 and include stops at the booths of LED display manufacturers such as Leyard.

The tour is specifically designed for broadcasters who are looking to integrate video wall technology into studios and sets. As an added bonus, each tour will be customized per group according to each broadcaster’s intended application and filming method.

“Our APG Displays LED technology tour will take interested broadcasters on an in-depth walking tour to various LED display manufacturer booths,” said APG Display president David Weatherhead in a statement. “Our technical experts, who will serve as our tour guides, will explain the differences between each LED display, answer any questions that arise, and recommend a solution based on the particular application at hand.”

According to Weatherhead, broadcasters are increasingly upgrading LCD video walls to LED video walls — mainly due to the smaller pixel pitch — in order to provide better quality images and higher resolution.

Depending on a broadcaster’s particular filming style, the desired video wall manufacturer, size, or pixel pitch varies. “We are the experts in this technology, particularly for the broadcast sector,” Weatherhead continued in the statement. “We have installed LED and LCD videowalls in the world’s most prominent broadcast studios across North America. We have the experience to offer the best recommendation possible to any interested parties.”

NAB 2016 attendees who would like to participate in APG Displays’ “Backstage” LED Display tour can request a date and time here.

After the show, APG Displays will also be arranging on-site camera tests as required for broadcasters.
