Versa TUBE made history as the first linear, mappable video fixture. Created at Element Labs, our cofounder Jeremy Hochman’s visionary first startup, many of our team members were part of the core group to bring Versa TUBE to life.
The team also proved that LEDs could be beautiful with Versa TILE, which quickly became synonymous with high-end architectural backdrops with it’s glassy front surface. Versa TUBE and Versa TILE soon appeared in award-winning music videos, art installations, Super Bowl halftime shows and beyond.
When the Creative LED Industry was in its infancy, no software or hardware existed to map video pixels into arbitrary physical space. Our team members were among the pioneers who saw this gap as an opportunity to develop groundbreaking technology.
In 2003, while at Element Labs, many of our team members were part of the skunkworks crew that invented RasterMapper, the industry’s first pixel mapping software. A true software trailblazer, RasterMapper allowed for creative fixture placement along with the video and data distribution hardware to run true video signals to the fixtures.
In 2006, Element Labs created the breakthrough technology of a transparent video display called Stealth, and it soon changed the entire LED landscape. Designers had never before seen a product that allowed them to have artistic control over video elements and use them as if they were traditional scrim materials.
Stealth quickly became the most sought-after video display tile in the world and was one of the most widely adopted and used scenic elements at the time.
Identifying a need for usability and easy assembly within the LED market, Hochman and his trusty band of innovators at Element Labs designed Cobra ,the first ultra thin, die-cast unibody LED panel with an integrated latching mechanism. Soon after Barco acquired Element Labs, the Cobra tile was the highest shipping volume LED tile in the world in the 2000’s.
Seeing the potential for ultimately making an impossibly-thin display, the RS Series was soon born while many of our team members were at Revolution Display. The RS Series was the first full Rec2020 display, complete with integrated hybrid cable technology, and it is still regarded as one of the most innovative LED tiles for high performance award-winning architectural installations.
Cobra’s unibody design, was heralded as being incredibly lightweight compared to other products on the market at the time. However, our designers soon started to think up ways they could further spark an industry disruption and make an even more feather-light LED product.
In 2012, the Revolution Display Carbon and Air products disrupted the industry and became the first tiles to incorporate aerospace-grade materials into LED frames. Creating an ultralight framing system that allowed for quick and easy assembly as well as minimal structure, a new industry standard was set.
The M8 Platform was the first 4K LED processor with integrated fiber and made the MGM Cotai installation possible. This award-winning application has a processing capacity of close to a quarter billion pixels. Many of our star engineers were involved in the development of this product, which won the Live Design Product of the Year Award in 2015.
In 2019, Megapixel VR debuted the HELIOS LED Processing Platform capable of driving over 35 million pixels from a single rack unit, with stacking features to drive an unlimited pixel canvas for the most demanding and critical applications. HELIOS is quickly becoming the gold standard for color accurate HDR workflows.
