This is certainly a means of getting your product’s awareness out to a wide audience!
Rick Cope, president of NanoLumens, based in Norcross, Georgia, appeared last Thursday on Fox Business Network’s Countdown to The Closing Bell television show to introduce the company’s NanoFlex 112” flexible LED display.
The segment, featuring Dennis Kneale, Fox’s tech and media expert corresponden, highlighted the numerous advantages of NanoLumens products as compared to other large-format digital displays.
Cope said, “For eight years, we’ve been in a black and white box, then a color box, and now a color rectangle. NanoLumens’ technology is designed to get you out of the box! It turns your digital dreams into reality. Now, quite literally, if you can imagine it, we can make it and put it on the wall, either indoors or out.”
Kneale noted that the NanoLumens displays are one-sixth the weight, one-fifth the thickness and use only 25% as much power compared to competitors. He was also interested that the display that can literally bend to accommodate any installation, and that the frames are painted any colour in an auto body shop.
Kneale also discussed Cope’s career, which includes 20 years in the U.S. Marine Corps. and three years working at DARPA, the U.S. government’s highly advanced technology research division, developing advanced defense and weapons systems.
Cope added that NanoLumens was built from the ground up with private investments, requiring zero government assistance, and currently employs, directly and indirectly through its U.S. based subcontractors, hundreds of people serving in jobs that. he said, can’t and won’t be outsourced to another country.
He said, “Every employee is an owner of the company, and they always will be. You can’t hire people who’ve done this before, since no one’s ever done it before. So we look for smart, driven individuals, put them in a great culture, compensate them well and treat them well, just like we did in the Marine Corp.”
To date, NanoLumens has manufactured about 200 individual displays, totaling about 7,000 square feet. Cope also revealed that his company is currently working on a 120’ by 200’ digital display.
