Daktronics Adds NPN-6400 to Lineup of Narrow Pixel Pitch Products

Adding to the company’s line of narrow pixel pitch products, Daktronics has released the NPN-6400. This product leverages a new LED technology that increases both contrast and durability while also featuring the tightest pixel pitch options available on the market at 0.7- and 0.9-millimeters.

Pixel pitches of 0.7- and 0.9-millimeters are ideal for very close viewing where 4K can be achieved in 138” and 165” diagonally, respectively. Pixel pitches of 1.2- and 1.5-millimeters are also available in this new product line to achieve 4K in 220” and 275” diagonally, respectively.

“We’re seeing customers looking to achieving a greater resolution in a smaller physical footprint,” says Adam Gilliland, Daktronics product manager. “This latest innovation allows the possibilities of 4k and 8k to become a reality in pixel pitches that are below one millimeter as LED technology rivals LCD technology in that realm.”

Applications where this technology is best suited include command and control rooms, conference and board rooms, auditoriums, and any setting where the audience may be within an arm’s reach of the display and rich contrast is valued. The product was built with the professional audiovisual industry in mind and is Buy American Act (BAA) compliant.

“As pixel pitches become tighter and tighter, a dark, matte canvas allows for impressive video quality in any indoor lighting condition,” says Gilliland. “The added durability allows for more effective, faster installations while also mitigating the risk of damage from touch or impact. This allows the display to be positioned closer to the viewing audience.”

The NPN-6400 product line is built on Daktronics proprietary Pure Pixel Processing signal platform and uses Daktronics-engineered DI-6000 display interface.

“Not only do we do we design, develop and build the display technology, we do the same with the DI-6000, our proprietary architecture and display interface,” adds Gilliland. “This technology provides benefits in grayscale and color reproduction as well as extra capacity for image refinement capabilities.”
