Lighthouse Technologies Announces Strong Business Growth, Expansion Plans

Wuhan Racecourse, China

Following a year of strong growth, leading LED display developer, manufacturer and supplier Lighthouse Technologies Limited continues to forge new ground with several major global wins in the first quarter of 2010.

The first ever true 1080p LED display

Lighthouse scored two huge sports contacts in early 2010, starting with the historic Rose Bowl, home of one of the United States’ biggest college football championships. This year’s matchup between the two top-rated undefeated teams, the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Texas Long Horns, was brought to life with a gigantic 10.16m (w) x 8.38 (h) R7-ER LED screen, which displayed game-speed, slow-motion and stop-action replay with stunning lifelike clarity.

A month later Lighthouse screens were in the spotlight again at the American Airlines Center, where Lighthouse installed the first ever true 1080p LED display to appear in an NBA or NHL facility. Along with 25 other Lighthouse screens, the 1920x1080 display added drama and excitement to the NBA’s annual Slam Dunk Contest, delivering instant replays, real-time stats and scores, and dynamic advertising in lustrous colour and rich detail.

Lighthouse is also participating in the World Cup 2010 in South Africa

Lighthouse has also seen big gains in Europe and the Asia-Pacific. In January, installation was completed on a new Lighthouse screen at Ippodromo San Rossore, one of Italy’s most progressive horse racing venues, while in the UK Lighthouse has installed screens at several new London locations for Ocean Outdoor. In Asia, Lighthouse added screens to iSquare, one of Hong Kong’s most luxurious shopping and entertainment destinations, and will supply screens to a Tseung Kwan O property estate in Hong Kong, Sagar Catering in India, and is rapidly expanding into Korea as well. Lighthouse is also participating in several upcoming global events, including the World Cup 2010 in South Africa, Shanghai World Expo 2010, and the Asian Games.


Lighthouse will expand its factory base

As a result of its consistent growth and success during the past months, Lighthouse has announced plans for a massive expansion of its factory base to ensure it can continue to meet rapidly growing demand.

“By pursuing an aggressive growth strategy, we have managed to grow rapidly yet stably,” said Peter Chan, general manager of Lighthouse. “This growth has enabled us to initiate plans for dramatic expansion in our supply capacity, so we’re confident that we’ll be able to go on providing world-class products, service and expertise as demand continues to rise. And, with the outstanding customer and partner relationships and trust we’ve built over more than a decade, we are extremely optimistic about the road ahead.”
