NanoLumens Inc. is a private American corporation that designs and manufactures digital LED displays. Since its founding in 2006, the company has designed products that target the market gap between consumer flat panel displays and commercial outdoor LED billboards in indoor spaces. The company is best known for creating the world’s first large-format flexible display, the NanoFlex 112”;[1] but now has a full product line of fixed, indoor LED displays in any size, shape, or curvature. The company is currently headquartered in Norcross, Georgia.

History[edit]

NanoLumens was launched in 2006 by then and current CEO Richard ‘Rick’ Cope.[2] NanoLumens now holds over 200 patents on the technology used in their displays.

The company raised more than $10 million from 2006-2009 from angel investors to fund their operations,[3] and primarily targets the digital out-of-home (DOOH) market, with sales in the U.S. & Canada, and expansion in Europe, the Middle East, Australia, and South America.[4]

NanoLumens relocated its headquarters at the beginning of 2012 to a new 32,000 square foot office center in Norcross after being courted by the Gwinnett Chamber Economic Development Department and the Georgia Department of Economic Development to stay in the area.[5] The new facility houses the largest digital display showroom in the US. 2012 also marked the company’s first full year of commercial production.

In 2013, NanoLumens released the Studio Pro series, a family of LED digital displays for broadcasters that eliminates moiré.

Product lines[edit]

NanoLumens produces digital display solutions targeted at the Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) Market for indoor installations. Displays range from 4mm to 10mm pixel pitches depending on the model and can be flat, curved, or cylindrical.
