Matrix displays and other LED signs are becoming the flagship billboards for many high-profile companies around the world. In London, both Vodafone and Reuters have created massive electronic signs as advertisements in some of the busiest spots in town. Similarly impressive signs can also be found in New York and Tokyo,.

Matrix Displays Employ the Latest Lighting Technology

These large interactive advertising billboards take advantage of LED technology. LED stands for light-emitting diodes, and is much brighter and energy-efficient than traditional incandescent lighting. What's more, it is also possible to program in countless forms of characters, video, and graphics displays.

With memory space able to save 150,000 characters at a time, these signs are just the beginning of a brave new world in electronic displays. Their applications are limitless. As an example, consider that many LED manufacturers hold an inventory of more than 5,000 different products, not to mention their customizing abilities.

News feeds and data broadcasts are quite popular for many indoor displays within offices. These matrix displays can be hooked up to a newswire service, such as Dow Jones, Reuters, or Bloomberg News. Factories also use message boards to convey production and safety information. In addition, matrix displays are also very useful in sporting stadiums, where their brightness and energy-saving features come in handy.
