Cree, Inc. announces the commercial availability of the new Screen Master C4SMT and C4SMD 4mm LEDs. The superior brightness and unrivaled far-field pattern matching, combined with industry-leading packaging technology, can enable Cree LED customers to deliver a better viewing experience for their audience and achieve lower system and operating costs than previous generations of LEDs.
The C4SMT and C4SMD are the two brightest LEDs in Cree's high brightness P2 oval LED family. The C4SMD offers the brightest performance at zero degree intensity and the C4SMT offers the brightest peak intensity performance at a -20 degree angle. Both LEDs are designed to maintain a tight and consistent viewing experience across the entire viewing angle and far field pattern of the LED, allowing for an even viewing experience for the end customer from different angles and viewing positions.
The C4SMT is the world's first commercially available high-brightness LED with a tilted -20 degree viewing angle, optimized for outdoor video screens and digital billboards that are installed higher than the viewing audience. Designed to have its brightest point below the horizon, the C4SMT LED minimizes wasted light and can save up to 32 percent in power consumption compared to a standard through-hole oval LED with a zero degree viewing angle.
Screen Master C4SMT and C4SMD high-brightness LEDs are commercially available now.
