Samsung creates digital OOH landmark in Lima, Peru
By M4G Bureau - July 10, 2018
The screen features 16.0mm pixel pitch for enhanced resolution with IP65 standards that ensure the screen holds up under all types of weather conditions
Plaza Norte, one of the iconic shopping malls in Lima, the capital of Peru, is now home to South America’s largest digital out-of-home (DOOH) LED signage created by Samsung Electronics. The 200,000 sq. m shopping mall houses major shops and brands. Now the shoppers and visitors can also gather at the square in front of the mall to indulge in watching a major sports game or an exciting cultural event on the mega-sized screen. The signage at Lima’s Plaza Norte is the latest example of Samsung’s recent LED signage endeavors, following the installation of South Korea’s largest curved SMART LED signage outside of COEX convention center in one of the most bustling areas of Seoul.
To build the largest DOOH LED signage in South America, Samsung’s Enterprise Business Team collaborated with Plaza Norte’s marketing team for many months to launch the LED screen located on the outside of the Plaza Norte building. Building upon the previous experiences in the field, Samsung’s engineers decided that the ideal LED screen product for the mall would be the XA160F outdoor, which consists of 528 cabinets and has an area of 487 square meters.
The Samsung XA160F SMART LED Signage outdoor display features a 16.0mm pixel pitch for enhanced resolution. The screen also comes with IP65 standards that ensure the screen holds up under all types of weather conditions, and the panels have an anti-UV treatment that prevents deformation and discoloration due to sun exposure. In terms of performance, its design and brightness level deter the interference of light, maintaining levels of 7,700 nits at all times.
As it’s the largest DOOH LED signage in South America, the 487 square-meter screen marks a milestone for Samsung. The company will now strive for even higher goals in product innovation and project development regarding its professional display business.
