Trans-Lux Introduces Innovative TL Vision Court Side LED Displays
Nov 4 14
Trans-Lux Corporation has released a new series of modular Court Side LED Displays under its premier TL Vision brand. The units provide a high-performance LED display in a sturdy steel frame optimized for reduced weight to allow the systems to be easily stored, moved and set up. TL Vision Court Side LED Displays are available in 8- and 10-foot configurations with either 6mm or 10mm pitches with pixel counts ranging from 64x224 pixels to 112x480 pixels depending on their length and pitch selection. To provide customers with even greater flexibility, each modular unit can be custom-ordered as a stand-alone scoreboard, TL Vision scoreboard, TL Vision display, rear-illuminated sign or non-illuminated sign. Multiple units can be connected end-to-end to create LED displays tailored to specific events. Additional features of the new TL Vision Court Side LED Displays include an adjustable display angle of 0, 3 or 6 degrees; six casters for even weight distribution and ease of mobility; and an internal cable tray to hide and protect cables and wires. Rather than requiring equipment to be stacked on the table top or within a separate rack unit, TL Vision Court Side LED Displays incorporate rack-mount space that is hidden from view to reduce clutter and protect equipment. The folding table tops incorporated into the TL Vision Court Side LED Displays are designed to avoid damage during setup and maximize storage space. To provide safety the unit features padded tops and ends, which can be easily removed to access the cable tray or knobs for adjusting both display angle and alignment.
