Sunrise can use a variety of materials and finishes to create a display that will complement its environment. This custom LED display features a stainless steel chassis which turns (3) 90°corners and is suspended from the ceiling by cabling.
CUSTOM LED SOLUTIONS: A TICKER TAPE WITH THE POISE OF A CONTEMPORARY ART PIECE
When TPG Architecture (NYC) designed a multi-function room for their Manhattan client’s financial firm they had envisioned a ticker tape
element which would appear as if folded into the corners and embedded into the surface of their island bar. The desire for a product that was
proven to have a long lifespan and would require little to no maintenance made the concept of using LED technology most appealing. Trying to
incorporate both functionality and finesse, TPG sought out Sunrise Systems, a custom manufacturer of LED displays, to take their design from
imagination to fabrication.
To ensure proper fit, production was closely coordinated with on-site contractors, Lehr Construction Corporation (NYC). The 1.75” thick stainless
steel enclosure was formed with virtually no seams to create a trendy pendant feature above the bar. Weighing approximately 5 lbs. per foot
the L portion of the ticker is discreetly suspended from the ceiling by thinly threaded aircraft cable.
A custom-tailored software program allows the client to select which stocks they would like displayed in the feed as well as provide the option
for dynamic programmable messages. A three-tiered program, the Stock Builder application updates figures every 15 minutes, Image Key allows
user to create bitmap images for the display, and Text Builder converts text into bitmap images. A controller application matches stock quotes
with the stock icons in the custom library and displays them accordingly. Controlled by an actual PC, the sign can be remote accessed.
