We have a confession to make. The ThinLyte Premium™ lightbox is one of those legacy lightbox models that's seen its prime, in terms of volume, for the simple reason that edgelit LED lightboxes are all the rage — and we can say that, because nobody offers as many edgelit LED lightbox models (or any other models for that matter) than Blue River Digital. So why is the ThinLyte Premium lightbox model with its T8 fluorescent lamps and ultra-thin 2-inch profile NOT discontinued? Well, ask Discovery Channel, who has qty. 26 of them on display in their Third Street Manhattan headquarters, presenting their cable lineup show-by-show (check them out next time you're downtown). Or ask CBS' "CSI" network television series, who has qty. 12 of them on their main production set. Clearly, there's something special about the ThinLyte Premium lightbox, and we think we know what it is.
If you were to ask, what is the thinnest, most aggressively direct-backlit fluorescent lightbox on the market, we're sure you're looking at it. And notice we said DIRECT-backlit. This means the lamps in the ThinLyte Premium are directly behind your duratrans backlit graphic, shining "directly" at your retina. You see, edgelit lightboxes are nice and skinny, and LED lightboxes are cool and green, but there's a problem with LED lamps sitting only 2 inches behind your graphic, and we call that problem "visible pinpoints" or "hotspots".
So we just can't let it go — the ThinLyte Premium lightbox, that is. It's just too much fun dropping names — names of companies who care about their image, and about brightness, and about uniform diffusion. So next time you need — oh let's say — the brightest, thinnest, best-diffusing lightbox model on earth, you'll remember this conversation, and you'll give the ThinLyte Premium a serious look. Who says old guys are past their prime?
