3mm High Brightness Indoor Surface Mount (SMD) LED Window Displays
Ad Art is a trusted electronic sign vendor for First Republic Bank (FRB). One reason for this long, successful relationship is because when FRB asks for something challenging or different, Ad Art rises to the occasion and delivers on their promises. There were many challenges to overcome with this project, requiring innovative solutions. First, FRB required a product outside of what was typically available to Ad Art: a 3mm, high brightness LED panel that was lightweight, and the correct size, for installation behind existing window bays. Secondly, this was the largest number of LED pixels that Ad Art had ever been tasked to process as a single image, something they had never attempted before. Third, since this location is a symbol of FRB's corporate image to the public, the system had to be extremely reliable and performant, reflecting 24/7 mission critical operation. Finally, this extensive amount of work needed to be completed in an unusually short period of time, all during the global Covid-19 pandemic!
Because Ad Art has a trusted relationship with their LED manufacturing partner, they were able to work with them to design and manufacture a completely new LED product that met the specific requirements of this project. To meet image processing demands, a new and very powerful graphics and control system was designed, engineered, and tested from scratch. The content and control systems have redundant counterparts so that downtime is minimal during an unexpected outage. To reduce manufacturing design time, production time, and shipping time, Ad Art and their manufacturing partner expedited processes and made special arrangements to ship product incrementally to the project site so as to meet the installation schedule. The end result is a truly impressive LED display that inspires awe, all delivered on time and on budget.
