Carmanah Provides Table Game Signs to Progressive Gaming International

Tuesday, August 22, 2006

Carmanah's LED Sign Group has received an order from Progressive Gaming International for a number of its table game signs. These LED edgelit signs, are scheduled for placement in PGI and Harrah's casinos at locations across the Unites States to advertise the World Series of Poker table game.

Progressive Gaming International (PGI) is a leading supplier of gaming equipment and systems and, provides gaming solutions to major casinos worldwide. PGI is working closely with Harrah's Entertainment to promote the World Series of Poker table game and selected Carmanah's table game signs to advertise the World Poker Series Table Game because of their LED edge-lit illumination technology, ultra-thin design, light weight and low energy consumption.

Carmanah can create high impact table game signs to match any gaming facility's interior design and architectural theme. Carmanah's sign technology is currently in use at more than 450 gaming establishments worldwide, including casinos, racinos and cruise ships, etc. Carmanah's low-profile LED sign technology provides some major advantages over other lighting technologies, including:

  • Unique LED edge-lighting technology that is extremely bright with unparalleled clarity. Even in a loud, bustling gaming environment, Carmanah's signs stand out and draws attention.
  • Sight lines and camera angles are extremely important for proper security and Carmanah's low profile signage allows more location flexibility and less visual interference.
  • Carmanah's LED edge-lighting is extremely energy-efficient. It provides high performance using up to 90% less energy than fluorescent or neon alternatives, and up to 25% less energy than many competing LED lighting technologies.
  • LEDs offer up to 10 years of operation with no maintenance.
