Anna Valley Acquires Over 500 sq metres Of 3.9mm Unilumin LED

Anna Valley has acquired over 500 square meters of 3.9mm Unilumin LED, making the AV and entertainment technology company one of the biggest, if not the biggest, supplier of single-batch high-resolution LED in the United Kingdom.

The purchase was motivated by increased demand for super-sized screens for projects like "X Factor: Celebrity 2019" where 200 square meters of Anna Valley’s new stock was used to create the digital backdrop for the live final at the SSE Arena, Wembley at the weekend.

The improvement in LED resolution and the increase in the computing capability of video processors and servers has prompted a surge in demand for large screens to display ultra-high-resolution content for live events and broadcast shows. However, in order to achieve image consistency across these video walls, they have to be built from LED panels that are not only from the same supplier, but from the same production batch. Anna Valley now hold enough high-resolution LED stock to cover the stage area at the SSE Arena, Wembley twice over, or to build a giant screen measuring 30m x 17m to display 8K content at a native resolution.

"With 500 square meters of single-batch LED, we're now able to offer almost limitless scale and versatility in display design," said Anna Valley Operations Director, Pete Jones. "This represents a significant financial investment and reinforces Anna Valley’s position as the leading entertainment technology supplier to the event, live entertainment and broadcast sectors."

The 3.9mm Unilumin LED panels are extremely thin and lightweight, weighing just 26kg per square meter (as opposed to an industry average of 40kg) which makes it easier to build screens in a variety of shapes and sizes. Using these panels Anna Valley can create concave and convex curves and ribbons or utilise their corner panels to build angular structures like cubes and pillars. With all the electronics housed in the control box, it’s easy to clip off and replace individual panels to adjust settings or carry out maintenance if necessary. Anna Valley have also bolstered their stock of black marble LED floor by 60 square meters, bringing their total inventory of this product to just under 100 square meters.

Both ranges of LED will feature at Anna Valley's upcoming "Inspiration Showcase" scheduled to take place from the 13th to the 17th of January 2020.
