Orlando, Florida-based Absen Inc. announces that its screens were used in a collaboration with Norwalk, Connecticut-based LED company Trans-Lux on an installation at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The arena is home to the National Hockey League’s New Jersey Devils. The companies say it is the world’s largest center-hung LED scoreboard, weighing in at more than 88,000 pounds and containing a record-breaking 29 million pixels.

Owners of the Prudential Center first approached Trans-Lux with the intent to deliver the best fan experience anywhere. Trans-Lux, which specializes in large-screen LED installations, sought out technology partners to make the idea become a reality. In the end, the company ended up using 15 different technologies.

“For the LED component, Absen proved to be the perfect partner to work with as we designed a fully integrated Trans-Lux solution,” says Jean-Marc Allain, president and CEO of Trans-Lux. “The Absen team attended to our every need, especially on the delivery side, from start to finish.”

The scoreboard, which is the first 4K display in the NHL, measures just shy of 9,600 square feet and features dimensions of 60′ wide x 38′ high, and its main displays are 49′ wide x 27′ high.

In addition to the scoreboard, Absen and Trans-Lux also worked together in designing a custom solution for the 10mm LED ribbons circling the arena.
