Your implementation, our technology

LightnTec pixel-controlled skin LED-surfaces ledTec.flex  are very thin, ultralight, flexible, cuttable and bright. You may use our innovative high-tech material ledTec.flex, which is manufactured in Germany (Karlsruhe) indoor as well as outdoor. Our product family ledTec.flex | Wallpaper P32 | Banner P16 | Display P5) is like a flexible LED-display on foil substrate and can play standard video content.

Your automatic data analyses, our innovation

With motionTec.sens (tracking sensors, cameras and cmsPro-Cloud) you are able to detect, count and track people in 3D-spaces. With data automatically analysed by motionTec.sens | AI-Analytics (inclusive path analysis, dwell time, purchase power, gender and age) we control your digital signage as well as ledTec.flex LED-foils to play back videos. For connecting, guiding, entertaining and informing people for a unique customer experience for entertainment, for personalised advertising, but also for controlling people for their safety.


The multi layer light weight construction of our video displays reduces the use of elaborate substructures, rigging or scaffolding. The flexible foil also minimizes freight volume and weight for transport.

The  surface of the video foils can be coloured as desired, so that the basic colour in the daytime effect is not generated via power consumption. This leads to a considerable reduction of the energy to be introduced within 24 hours, especially of course when the sun is shining.

Our patented development can reduce light through the use of micro-optical structures and light guides to reduce power consumption and CO2-footprint by up to 50%. The upwards limited beam angle reduces the light pollution during the night.
