Digital Street Furniture is a very versatile product with exceptionally tight line spacing which is well suited for heavy foot traffic and slow-moving motorized traffic environments such as shopping centers, out-of-home advertising and other public spaces. Due to the lower, reachable locations associated with this type of product, it is manufactured with a layer of glass covering the actual LED elements as an extra means of protection.This product emphasizes the message instead of the medium with vibrant images and unsurpassed picture quality backed by 6,000 nits of adjustable brightness to overcome the most demanding of lighting conditions. Each of the four displays at UC San Diego features 6 millimeter line spacing and measure 5 feet high by 3 feet wide. They will be located at the UC San Diego Theatre District to help with event promotion and other special announcements. The displays are positioned at eye-level to deliver maximum visibility of scheduled advertising, event announcements and other timely information to passers-by.
