Absen users in South Africa were invited to attend a three-day training session with Ricky Qiu from Absen at local distributor DWR Distribution earlier this year.

The ACE Training (Absen Accredited Certified Engineering) was attended by twenty delegates from both the rental and install markets, with the aim of imparting practical user knowledge to operate and set up screens as well as fault-finding.

“The Absen panels have taken off beyond our wildest imagination,” said Schalk Botha, sales representative at DWR. “The panels are user-friendly, reliable, cost-effective and easy to maintain.”

Said Ricky Qiu from Absen, “The training went very well and was much better than I had anticipated. The course made sense to the delegates, and I can see a positive future for Absen in South Africa.”

Ricky will be in the country again in November, this time to demonstrate the new Absen Polaris Lite range.  Dates will be confirmed, but for more information, contact Schalk Botha at schalk@dwrdistribution.co.za

Absen Launches New Generation Rental Display ‘PL Lite’ Series

Absen has recently launched a new generation of rental product for indoor and outdoor applications. The PL Lite was first unveiled at LED China.

Engineered to deliver the best balance of visual performance, ease of use, flexibility and reliability with an excellent price-to-performance ratio, PL Lite is available in four-pixel pitches: 2.5, 2.9, 3.9 and 4.8. The PL Lite is available in APAC and Latin America so far.

Designed for simple operation, the PL Lite series features 9kg-12.5kg lightweight panels and industry-leading vertical auto-lock system, enabling a quick and easy installation, regardless of screen size. This mechanical advance is coupled with the unique Platform design, meaning modules, components and accessories for all available pixel pitch products can be used on the same frame, and customers do not need to stock all the types them, which reduces cost. PL Lite also features front and rear service, and has a quick-swappable power box, allowing tool-free service in seconds.

To meet the requirement of design flexibilities, Absen developed a proprietary Side-Lock curve system. PL Lite provides -7.5 to +10 degrees curve, hanging bars and Universal Stacking System, in addition to the lightweight panels. Optimised for extra-large outdoor LED display applications, it features a variant panel of 500x1000mm for P3.9 and P4.8, twice the standard size 500mmx500mm but 20% lighter than conventional panels.

Absen PL Lite boasts 110% NTSC colour gamut and more than 7000:1 high contrast, delivers extraordinary visual performance. Adopting a robust new cabinet frame with IP65/54 water-proof design and special edge protection, it is a perfect all-weather rental solution for wide ranges of applications from outdoor concert touring and festivals to corporate events, car shows, government activities, summits and exhibition stands.
