Cree Revolutionizes Indoor and Outdoor Video Screen Market



Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE), a market leader in LED lighting, has raised performance levels for high-brightness LEDs optimized for high resolution indoor and outdoor video screens with its new water resistant and higher contrast high-brightness LEDs. The superior contrast offered by these Cree LEDs extends the benefits of typical, black surface-mount LEDs that are used for high-definition, high-resolution LED screens and displays. The Screen Master® CLX6A-FKB delivers industry-leading intensity and far-field pattern matching for high-resolution full-color displays in a small water resistant package. Optimized for outdoor use with both IPX6 and IPX8 ratings, this PLCC6-type LED eliminates the need for a protective cover, reducing overall systems cost and delivering higher brightness. It is the industry's first water resistant, tall LED package, designed with dimensions that provide superior thermal performance and make it easier for customers to assemble. The Screen Master CLVBA-FKA is Cree's first black-body RGB surface-mount LED, optimized to provide the highest contrast ratio for indoor video screens. It has matched red-green-blue far-field patterns, delivering a consistent viewing experience across a wide range of viewing positions and unrivaled color vibrancy. "Cree has the broadest portfolio of products optimized for the indoor and outdoor video screen market." said Mike Watson, Cree, senior director of marketing, LED components. "Two years ago, Cree introduced the first water resistant surface mount LED. With the CLX6A, Cree demonstrates our leadership again by introducing the industry's first water resistant SMD LED in an easy-to-assemble, tall package. These new products allow our customers to create superior video screens that provide the viewing public with a better, richer image." Screen Master CLX6A and CLVBA high-brightness LEDs are commercially available now.
