In years past the only options for lighting in a display was to use standard fluorescent or incandescent lights which tended to be problematic at times. Broken tubes, burned out bulbs or restrictions at certain venues led to extra time and costs as well as displays not being seen at their best.
Not that long ago, LED lighting was viewed as just too expensive to be a viable option, but with recent advances in technology that is no longer the case. Costs have come way down and reliability has gone up making these options much more attractive. There are now LED’s available to fit any application from back-lighting to high powered spotlights with an almost unlimited choice of colors to give your display that extra bit of punch.
