PRG the first rental provider of AX 1.5 LED product in North America
NEW YORK – AUG. 19, 2019 – Production Resource Group LLC (PRG), the world’s leading provider of entertainment and event technology solutions, has added 100 square meters of the recently launched Absen Aries Series - AX 1.5 - to its global rental inventory. Absen AX 1.5 is a narrow pixel pitch (NPP) display designed to meet the growing demand for sub-2mm fine pitch LED in rental staging.
“We are delighted to be the first to offer our rental clients around the world the Absen 1.5 LED,” said Scott Hansen, PRG’s Chief Asset Officer. “We’ve seen an increase in the demand from our corporate clients for a reliable, high-resolution LED screen and with its superior definition and color purity, the Absen will be a valuable addition to our LED product offering.”
The AX 1.5 supports HDR10 (high-dynamic-range) standard allowing for a much broader range of colors. It also features the latest in Integrated Matrix Device (IMD) and Common Cathode (CC) technologies. IMD offers four-in-one-pixel installation and a panel that is 2.5 times stronger and more robust than conventional LEDs. CC improves brightness and contrast with better heat dissipation, consuming 20% less power. The panels are provided with corner edge protection, increasing reliability and reducing maintenance on-site. And the 16:9 aspect ratio (384 x 216 pixels per panel) that means that clients can use 4K and 8K resolutions at a standard size without customizing their video source. The Aries AX 1.5 is ideal for high-end corporate events, auto shows, e-gaming competitions and the broadcast industry with its reduced pixel pitch, high resolution and good off-axis viewing angle.
“We are thrilled that PRG will be amongst the first companies in the world to be able to offer customers the new Aries 1.5mm. With PRG’s breadth of clients from broadcast to corporate meetings, it will be exciting to see all the possibilities that PRG has in store for the AX 1.5,” said Larry Lipsie, Senior Sales Manager of Rental and Staging for Absen North America.
