NanoLumens, a manufacturer of display solutions for public environments, has completed the installation of nine custom-designed Nixel Series LED displays in Toronto Pearson, Vancouver and Pierre Elliott Trudeau international airports in Canada.
Almir DeCarvahlo, vice president of sales, NanoLumens, said, “As air travel continues to grow, airports are literally leading the way for their customers with high-impact LED displays that can be seen quickly and clearly from any area within a terminal. NanoLumens has succeeded by bringing technological enhancements and creativity to the equation with our Nixel Series of displays that empower designers and architects to really think outside the squares and rectangles of traditional digital displays, and instead create truly unique information centers that captivate as well as educate.”
The project began in December 2014 with the installation of a double-sided display at Montreal Trudeau, which was followed by two 360-degree displays four months later. This was followed by further installations at Vancouver International and most recently Toronto Pearson International, where NanoLumens created its eye-catching Flower display structure.
The Flower comprises four LED-backlit ‘petals’ that arch up and out from the center, each outfitted with a 6in x 12in NanoLumens curved 5.4mm pixel pitch display that matches the petal’s arch and provides a unique, immersive information display. The petals are made from translucent Corian, with multi-colored LEDs inside each petal that enable daily customization with pattern or color-changing capabilities. Beneath the petals is a 360-degree NanoLumens halo display that wraps around the sculpture’s center column and is used to provide seasonal displays, terminal-specific information and advertisements.
“When passengers have a bright, easy-to-read information display, it makes navigation simpler and improves the aesthetics of any large or busy space,” said DeCarvahlo. “And when designers and planners are given a blank slate, they can visualize artful technology installations that provide inspiration alongside information. We are excited to see more transportation hubs embrace these efficient technologies to empower their customers and provide new opportunities to advertisers.”
