New LED Digital Display Provides Exciting Video Capabilities

Adaptive’s AlphaEclipse™ Excite™ series introduces industry-leading digital performance, reliability and serviceability to outdoor digital sign advertising.

Milwaukee, WI, January 05, 2007 --( Adaptive® Micro Systems LLC announces the release of the AlphaEclipse™ Excite™ 35 Series of LED digital signage products. The EX35 expands upon the latest generation of Excite 23 outdoor digital signs (introduced June 2006) and builds on the legacy of Adaptive’s highly successful AlphaEclipse™ StreetSmart™, RoadStar™ and Classic families.

“Adaptive prides itself on meeting customer needs,” says Curt Lillie, Commercial Marketing Manager for Adaptive Micro Systems. “We are committed to setting the standard in our industry for short lead times, reliability and end user convenience. Adaptive is adding the Excite 35mm pitch product to the existing EX23mm models to grow our full color digital display line into a preeminent position in the marketplace. At the same time, we continue to innovate in order to constantly offer customers the best possible value.”

The Excite’s standard DVI connectivity enables it to function like a huge PC monitor. It’s focus on digital, PureColor™ displays, functionality, and connectivity enables the Excite sign to operate seamlessly and harmoniously with other customer owned digital sign devices. Customer investments in enterprise software solutions and flat panels can be leveraged with the addition of an Excite digital sign. Also, a host of breakthrough performance and reliability innovations introduced in the large character AlphaEclipse RoadStar Series, and hundreds of sizes of the StreetSmart Series have been incorporated into the new Excite Series. The Excite design is completely new and sets a new standard in our industry. Adaptive’s combination of digital display design and unique pixel-based geometry optimizes LED efficiency, while minimizing design complexity and energy costs. And, overhead LED display louvers provide superior contrast, maximizing readability even in direct sunlight.

“An embedded PC controller, 16.7 million exciting colors, 60 fps (for video version) and broadband file downloading capabilities make it easy to achieve that WOW-factor customers are looking for these days,” notes Lillie. “Of course with Adaptive, you will also receive our expert dealer/partner technical service support to make sure you are using your Excite digital sign to your maximum advantage as a communications tool.”

In addition, Excite solutions are meant to be enduring values. The innovative Protector™ case virtually eliminates contamination by rain, ice, salt fog and dust. There are no vents to clean or fan filters to change. “In fact, our combination of design simplicity and enclosure integrity enables the Excite™ Series to meet the most stringent certifications in the industry, including ETL, UL 50, UL 60950-1, IEC 60950-1 and military standards for weatherability,” says Lillie. For added servicing convenience, low-voltage SmartPanels™ allow quick, easy replacement of digital drivers from the front of the unit.

“Any way you look at it, AlphaEclipse Excite is an excellent display investment,” concludes Lillie. Of course, our other AlphaEclipse solutions will have their place. For large character displays RoadStar™ fits the need; in ground level monument applications or highly traveled street locations our StreetSmart™ line fits the requirement. But it’s easy to see that the Eclipse family of digital signs sets a new standard for value in outdoor digital sign advertising.”
