New LED-Based Signage Displays Boost Energy Efficiency

Sentina introduced a new generation of eco-friendly, affordably priced LED-based signage displays, offering small to medium sized retailers ways to cost-effectively update their consumer messaging daily.

Designed to replace fluorescent-based signage, Sentina uSign displays advance the energy-efficient LED lighting technology in a number of ways. First, the displays incorporate an enhanced LED lighting design that feature customized Super LED lights that are 20 percent brighter than conventional LED lights. Second, the Super LED lights are embedded behind a proprietary Shoji screen–based Optical Reflection Panel, OptiLight, that produces an ultra-bright, evenly dispersed edge-to-edge light that virtually eliminates heat emission. Third, the ultra-lightweight display frames are constructed entirely of recycled plastic. Fourth, each Sentina uSign frame consumes only 6 watts of power, which translates to an operating cost of less than a penny per-day in normal usage. Each 8-1/2” X 11” display costs $80.00.

According to Mei Noguchi, president of Sentina, the combination of the Super LED lights with the Shoji screen–based OptiLight Optical Reflection Panel combines to produce a new level of LED performance quality.

“Our solution eliminates the historic limitations of LED lighting that have restricted its use to single task applications such as laser pointers,” Noguchi says. “We have combined the incredible energy-saving efficiency of Super LED lights with the even light dispersing capability of our proprietary OptiLight panel to create a new generation of affordably priced retail signage that allows consumer facing businesses of all types to constantly update their retail messages in an affordable, environmentally friendly way.”

According to Noguchi, owner/operators of every kind of customer-facing retail business can relate to the challenge of cost-effectively updating their customer information displays on a regular basis. Everything from price lists to menus to bar specials to limited-time offers need to change on a daily or weekly business. Sentina uSigns enable businesses to update their presentation displays, creatively and cost-effectively, on a daily basis.

Sentina uSigns can be vertically or horizontally stacked or hung in any kind of retail environment, including bars, restaurants, hotels, health clubs, or office waiting rooms. Sentina uSigns eliminate the need to constantly produce a high volume of costly and wasteful printed menus, price sheets, and handouts.
