ElectroMat™ Electronic Counter Mats and Displays
Animated Electroluminescent (EL) Countermats & Displays
Want a unique way to make an effective impression? You have a great idea, but what if it gets lost in the clutter? Are you looking for a unique way to cut through the clutter of posters and advertising signage that numb and congest your audience?s receptiveness to your message? Then grab your audience by printing your message on a thin, durable and lightweight print medium that not only lights up like a fluorescent backlit sign but also provides eye-catching animation effects, similar to neon, but far more dramatic and realistic because it works within a high-resolution image.
What is EL, and how does it work? EL, or electroluminescent signage, is essentially a flat light bulb sandwich consisting of layers of conductive and non-conductive plastic and a layer of phosphor. The phosphor is laminated between two conductive layers and, as a voltage is applied between the two conductive layers, or electrodes, the phosphor emits light energy. When a high-quality, high-resolution image is printed over the light, it behaves like a backlit sign.
Taking it further: Animation makes EL even more effective By taking this idea further and dividing the printed image into several different sections that can be illuminated separately from one another, we can program and sequence these sections to provide an animated effect as we flash and/or fade the phosphor light in each of the sections in and out to create the impression of movement within a static printed image.
