2. Colour Transparent LED Film

LG has led the way in curved LED and transparent digital signage. Their colour transparent LED film is another addition to their innovative LED signage. Glass is transformed into creative digital signage by applying this film. The high transparency of these displays means that the film is unnoticeable when the LED is off, blending in with the glass completely.

These displays are vibrant, the colour transparent LEF film uses a 24mm pitch which helps to deliver the wide range of vibrant colours. This film is easily attached to surfaces with the self-adhesive back, making it easy to transform any existing window or glass into an engaging display – removing the need for any complicated construction.

The limitations of this film are endless. The glass this is installed on doesn’t need to be a certain size, or even straight. The size and layout of the film is easily customised to fit any space. The film can also be expanded by adding in more films in either a vertical or horizontal way or cut in parallel with the bezel to meet any size requirements. The curved format is also supported with this film, up to 1100R convex.
