Element Labs recently released Helix™, its new line of flexible LED video screens.
Helix products can bend, wrap, drape, and fold to conform to even the most unusual designs. Both debuting Helix products, Helix G75 and Helix H75, offer a pixel pitch of 75 millimeters and carry significant IP ratings.
"Our customers have been telling us they need more flexible, IP-rated products for both touring and installations," says Rich Pierceall, sales and marketing director. "We feel the Helix product line answers that need with a wide variety of features at attractive price points."
Helix G75's ultra-thin grid construction provides the flexibility of a curtain-like screen with the geometric stability of a rigid product. Modules, each four pixels wide by 32 pixels long, can link together to create large displays. Helix G75's weather-resistant design (IP 65) makes it suitable for both interior and exterior applications. This highly transparent unit is available in both black and clear.
Durable and lightweight, Helix G75 screens quickly roll up for shipping and unroll for rapid deployment. There are two rigging options available with Helix G75. A linked version allows a screen to be top hung for temporary installation. A cabled version allows a screen to be tensioned for permanent installation.
Helix H75 is daylight visible and fully submersible, making it an ideal solution for challenging projects. With an IP rating of 68, this system can withstand high temperatures and prolonged ultra-violet exposure. Helix H75 incorporates individually-lensed red, green, and blue LEDs to deliver unusually high brightness. Connect multiple modules to cover huge areas with video.
A tough, synthetic fabric structural system gives Helix H75 a cargo-net-like flexibility. Screens can be rolled or folded for quick transportation and rapid deployment. Helix H75 is particularly appropriate for temporary installations that require frequent relocation. Helix H75 also offers remarkable flexibility of control. Drive a Helix H75 screen with any of several Element Labs control systems.
"We anticipate further development of the Helix product line to include a variety of pixel pitch options and even more flexibility in control," says Pierceall.
