Cree's LEDs used in Lighthouse Technologies’ high definition video screens

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA says that its 3-in-1 high-brightness (HB)-LEDs are used in Lighthouse Technologies’ high definition video screens installed in the American Airlines Center (an arena that is home to the NBA’s Mavericks and NHL’s Stars).

In addition to hosting thousands of NBA and NHL fans, the American Airlines Center also features numerous concerts and live entertainment. The installation of 25 Lighthouse LED video screens is part of a large-scale technological renovation project at the arena. This includes the first 1080x1920 high-definition video screen in any NBA or NHL facility.

“Cree’s Screen Master high-brightness LEDs provide excellent quality and performance, helping Lighthouse Technologies deliver vibrant color and crisp detail,” said Paul Thieken, Cree director of marketing, LED components. “Sports fans and concert attendees alike are sure to appreciate the stunning views, on-screen statistics and high-resolution action offered by the state-of-the-art Lighthouse video screens.”

“Cree’s broad product portfolio of LEDs featuring high-intensity output and wide viewing angles were the optimal solution for all the video screens, including the 4mm high resolution, high definition video screens Lighthouse designed for the American Airlines Center,” said Ed Whitaker, Lighthouse Technologies North American sales director.

The arena’s core display consists of four Lighthouse LED screens, each producing high-quality, superior-focus images. At each end of the arena, two stadium-sized video screens have been installed, each three times larger than the previous monitors.
