When it comes to making an impact
LED-based billboards and displays are getting ever bigger, with new sites being unveiled in theUKand acrossEuropealmost on a weekly basis. So it will come as no surprise when the highly prestigious Riverlight residential development, commissioned LEDsynergy, a recognised leader in electronic display technology, to build and install a focal-point electronic billboard to promote this new and important riverfront London landmark.
The full colour, high-definition LED-display board, measuring a massive 6144mm wide by 3072mm high, has been installed some four metres above the pavement. Creative use of the surrounding hoarding further increases its impact and clear lines of sight ensure that many thousands of people now see it every day. The specially commissioned display unit was built in the UK to exacting standards by LEDsynergy using locally sourced craftsmen, components and materials and all done to an exceptionally tight timescale.
â€œWhilst this may not be the largest LED-billboard to date it is still one of the most impressive,â€ stated Jeremy Harwood of LEDsynergy. â€Considerable planning, preparation and effort went into developing the content of the material to be displayed, along with how the display board would be used and how it would be controlled.
â€œOften biggest does not necessarily mean the best and we worked closely with the developers to design and deliver a competitive and cost effective solution that met all their requirements. Reliability was a significant factor in this project so having designed a robust solution we only sourced and used the best components available, which we then put together and tested at ourAndoverpremises before shipping to the site for installation and commissioning.â€
â€œWe pride ourselves on our commitment to customers, product performance and our quality of service. Over the past 30 years we have installed in the region of 20,000 LED screens and displays for a diverse spectrum of clients. As an LED screen and system manufacturer we offer a complete bespoke, cost effective solution from concept to commissioning. Whatâ€™s more our â€˜Made in Britainâ€™ philosophy means that around half of last yearâ€™s turnover was achieved with British manufactured products and weâ€™re striving to increase this further that over the next 12 months.â€
