Lighthouse Display at CA LotteryIRVINE, Calif. – January 27, 2009 – The California Lottery's newest TV game show, “Make Me a Millionaire,” includes a brand new state-of-the-art production that prominently features a 33 feet wide by 12 feet high LED video display from Lighthouse Technologies Limited. The leading LED technology provider partnered with Background Images, Inc. to install the display, which opens and closes and provides onstage graphics and entertainment for the game show – an updated version of the CA Lottery's popular show “The Big Spin.”

“Officials at the California Lottery made it clear they wanted a large display that could open and close and change the look of the set with a variety of graphics,” said Alan Barber, vice president of Background Images, Inc. “Lighthouse Technologies' R6-B 6mm LED video panel was the clear choice due to its durability, the clarity of the display and how well it functioned on set.”

The 128 Lighthouse R6-B 6mm black LED indoor panels that comprise the display utilize the revolutionary black LED technology and are Gen-Lock and built flicker free for broadcast – providing a crisp, clear picture that transmits across the airwaves without losing clarity. The panels also feature a resolution of 22,500 pixel/m2, a contrast ratio of 3800:1 and a brightness of 2,000 nits.

“The California Lottery follows CBS Sports, CBS News and BET Networks installations as the latest high-profile television show to utilize Lighthouse's LED video displays – reinforcing that when it comes to displays built to broadcast standards, Lighthouse Technologies is second to none,” said Joe Lapchick, senior sales manager, Eastern region, Lighthouse Technologies. “We are very happy to add another win with our partners at Background Images, who have helped Lighthouse establish a strong presence for itself in the U.S.”
