"The LVP1950F was designed to meet the growing need for an outdoor video display that allows for temporary use and frequent mobility," said Lighthouse Managing Director Mark Chan. "The use of these screens in Holland and Singapore prove that it is the ideal technology to display video and animation during the daytime to large crowds."

The new 19mm product adds to Lighthouse's long line of LED screens and panels for both indoor and outdoor use. This year, 80 Lighthouse LVP25 panels were installed in the newly constructed San Diego Padre's PETCO ball park to create a state-of-the-art outdoor video display for sports fans. The 6mm LVP0620 was recently chosen to create signage for wirelessly controlled advertisements atop New York City subway entrances. Lighthouse LVP1010 indoor panels were part of a major audio-visual renovation of the London HMV music store, acting as both an entertainment and advertising medium.

Because Lighthouse offers LED displays that solve a wide variety of display challenges, major businesses and organizations depend on Lighthouse video displays in high-profile locations around the world. Other notable installations include Piccadilly Circus in London, Seahawk Stadium in Seattle, and Hong Kong International Airport. Lighthouse screens are also featured in live performances by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sting, and in the Queen musical production "We Will Rock You."
