SiliconCore Magnolia will debut its new LED display for home entertainment at CEDIA EXPO 2014 next week. Unlike traditional LED displays, this new design makes close proximity viewing applications possible for the first time and with a fraction of the power consumption.
From September 11-13 in Denver, the SiliconCore Magnolia 1.50mm LED will feature the smallest pixel pitch on the market and has a native 4k resolution for ultimate clarity and uniformity. The display is scalable so it can be applied to any custom install.
SiliconCore has made LED accessible for the residential market by developing a new way to drive the LEDs using Common Cathode Technology, replacing the traditional Common Anode approach. The Common Cathode Technology design is a much more efficient at generating a given brightness for a given amount of power, ensuring that less power is wasted as heat, reducing power consumption and increasing the lifespan of the display. This results in market leading total cost of ownership.
The display will be launched with Crestron on Booth 150 where a 260” diagonal (19ft x 11ft) display will take center stage, flying high opposite the entrance to the Main Hall. This will deliver a large-scale 4K experience; showcasing Crestron’s expanded line-up of DigitalMedia 4K products.
The Crestron 4K Certification ensures that sources and displays meet the demands of a 4K distributed system. Crestron engineers in the DigitalMedia Lab rigorously test 4K products to ensure they work in a matrix-switched environment. Only those that do are awarded the Crestron 4K Certified logo. Now, for integrators and end users, finding a database of 4K products they can trust is as simple as visiting crestron.com/4K. Crestron’s CEDIA exhibit includes a live 4K switching demonstration, including Crestron 4K Certified displays from a variety of partners, including a SiliconCore LED display, which is being shown for the first time to the home entertainment industry.
Eric Li, President and CEO of SiliconCore commented, “We are proud to be working with Crestron to help deliver its 4K Already message and enhance the systems that they can offer with the benefits that only our products deliver. The innovative design of the Common Cathode LED driver circuits makes these displays suitable for markets that traditionally used lower quality display technologies, such as LCD, plasma or DLP projection cubes. By virtually every measure, from viewing angle, to total brightness, contrast, colour saturation and the overall clarity of the display, the direct view LED displays from SiliconCore are by far the best large area video display technology available anywhere.”
Sean Goldstein, VP of Marketing, Crestron Electronics said, “Our DigitalMedia product line is leading the way in 4K distribution, but of course a complete system also requires great sources and displays. Under our Crestron 4K Certified program, we test those devices so integrators don’t have to. In the process, we’re thrilled to find amazing products like the Magnolia 1.50mm pitch LED display from SiliconCore that share our dedication to innovation. From pixel pitch to total brightness and contrast to color saturation and the overall clarity of the display, the Magnolia is a beautiful display that we’re thrilled to have as the centerpiece of our 4K switching demonstration.”
