Lighthouse Technologies announced that Boitnott Visual Communications, Corp. (BVC), Virginia’s largest rental company, has chosen Lighthouse LED video screens to be its first LED video product offering to that region.

Based in Richmond, VA, and in business for the past 36 years, BVC has purchased 25 panels of the Lighthouse R10 indoor/outdoor LED video screens, and plans to make them the first rental offering of LED screens to the area. Because of LED’s low power consumption and high brightness video clarity, there has been steady demand for LEDs for various uses such as signage, advertising, and event video screens and displays.

BVC expects to see rentals of the LED screens for various outdoor and indoor venues, such as corporate tents where lighting would no longer have to be blacked out, movie nights that would not have to wait until dark to start, as well as college graduations and concerts where there is a need to display video or images to viewers located a great distance away.

“LED screens are perfect when conventional projection isn’t bright enough or competes with other ambient and ultraviolet lighting. Currently there is nothing remotely close to this available to rental customers in our area,” says Dan Yeary, vice president of BVC. “We chose the Lighthouse screens because we’ve seen their products in other venues and were very impressed with the easy setup and outstanding image quality. Their service is impeccable.”

The purchase of the LED screens by BVC comes on the heels of several new product launches at Lighthouse as it continues to meet high demands in the surging digital signage and rental and staging markets. The latest development from Lighthouse is the PopVision, the industry’s first portable, self-contained high brightness LED video screen, which debuted in June at InfoComm in Las Vegas. The screen is easily transported in a 5’ x 4’ (approx.) flight case featuring a wireless remote and auto-elevating system that allows the screen to “pop up” for fast, simple set-up. With its 6mm pixel pitch, the PopVision is ideal for events requiring sharp visual displays, as well as mobility for challenging staging and event applications.
