PRIMEVUE 2 SOFTWARE

Our LED EMC signs are control by our easy to use and powerful software package that was developed by Formetco engineers specifically to run Formetco F4X EMC signs.

SOLID COLOR RENDERING

The F4X LED's are specifically manufactured to produce the smoothest solid colors of any EMC on the market. Our LED's for each EMC are produced under the same controlled environmental conditions and only selected from the same lot, color bin and manufacturing date to ensure the closest possible match. Because there are thousands of LED's per EMC this process is under the most tedious quality control conditions. Combine these with consistent overall power flow and designs with solid color backgrounds, our elements appear smooth without time consuming calibration and have the appearance of a printed graphic. No other digital sign manufacturer provides such superior solid color rendering capabilities.

VIVID CONTRAST AND BRIGHTNESS

The F4X screens achieve 9,000 nits (nits is candela per square meter) with perfect color and brightness uniformity. When comparing brightness, all of our competitors state the pre-calibration brightness in nits. Keep in mind that a screen can lose upwards of 30% of its brightness after calibration. Competitor specifications are based upon pre-calibration Brightness because after calibration, nit rating can vary up to 30%.

HIGHER LED DENSITY WITH 4 LEDS PER PIXEL

Formetco signs will often have over 25% more LEDs per Sq .Ft. than other LED signs available. Our 4 LED design allows us to process the image with four times the visual pixel resolution.

64-BIT PROCESSING, 18 QUINTILLION COLORS

Formetco provides the most advanced color processing technology with extreme color depth. Our Single Bin LED manufacturing process ensures superior color accuracy, brightness, and 100% perfect uniformity of color.

THE BEST OFF ANGLE READERSHIP

Formetco's LEDs are perfectly matched and have 100% uniformity when viewing the LED screen at different angles up to almost 170 degrees.

NO COLOR CALIBRATION REQUIRED

Screen calibration is not required because of our proprietary manufacturing techniques that use single bin LEDs along with our advanced driver technology. The color calibration process will improve uniformity of brightness but will sacrifice the total brightness of the display. Usually 30% brightness is lost during color calibration. Our Red, Green, and Blue LEDs are all perfectly matched.

NO PLASTIC LENS OVER THE LEDS

A very low cost method to manufacture a LED sign is to put the LEDs behind a large plastic cover or lens. The plastic gets foggy and dirty over time reducing the readable of the LED screen. Ad-Tech properly seals LEDs without a plastic lens.

AUTOMATIC LED SELF-DIMMING

The F4X uses logarithmic dimming to match the response of the human eye at 256 levels. Formetco uses a photo cell to measure ambient light in real time. We provide a fail safe back up setting to insure proper operation of the LED screen dimming (Failsafe is scheduled dimming). We also factory calibrate the maximum and minimum brightness of the screen.
