Enttec: Black Pixel Tape

Michael Eddy

Not being the sort of company who likes to disappoint its clientele, Enttec have introduced a new Black Pixel Tape product and is available in two versions—one an RGB version and one RGBW version. The company had been getting a lot of requests from its clientele for a pixel tape that disappeared when turned off. Both versions feature a black printed circuit board to minimize external light reflection and to help conceal the installation when the display is switched off.
