LED ticker display installed in Global Investment Company
LED ticker display installed by APOLLOMI into Pimco - A global investment solutions provider with more than 2,000 dedicated professionals in 12 countries focused on a single mission: to manage risks and deliver returns for our clients.
Stock tickers have been around for years, but with the evolution of display technology, it has become common for LED screens to broadcast the latest information from the markets to brokers and specialists around the world.
Now a new LED display is adorning the interior of a financial firm in the heart of London, acting as a large scale stock ticker but with a form factor that makes it stand out from the crowd.
The LED display is 250mm high and has a length of 80 metres, although it is arranged in a U-shape around the perimeter of the trading floor.
It takes advantage of latest LED technology from LEDsynergy, and at the moment, is thought to be the only stock ticker of its kind currently in use in the UK.
The LED display itself benefits from having a higher resolution than many older stock tickers, which means that the information it showcases is far more legible. This is very important in the high pressure world in which traders operate, because one mistake could cost millions.
The LED display was also chosen because this type of solution requires less maintenance and consumers less electricity than traditional alternatives.
Meanwhile the light weight of the screen means it is easy to mount and generally endowed with lower ownership costs than might otherwise have been the case.
The display runs on the latest software and can be integrated with other systems, to help provide up to the second data for those viewing it.
Spokesperson, Chuck Hulbert, said that the LED screen was a stunning addition to the trading floor, it makes an impressive impact on visitors to the offices befitting a company such as Pimco and it was certainly money well spent.
