Samsung integrates Prismview technology into display business
Samsung has immediately become a world leader in large-format LED displays as they bring Prismview, LLC Sales and Marketing Teams into its display business, further strengthening the company’s display portfolio and salesforce. The Utah-based company manufactures and installs large-format LED video displays, and their products are recognized around the world for outstanding image quality and superior durability.
“With the union of Samsung’s industry leading display business and Prismview’s innovative LED technology, we are excited to extend our industry leadership in the LED market while continuing to meet the needs of our growing customer base,” said Harry Patz, Senior Vice President and General Manager for the Display Division at Samsung. “This combination allows for continued innovation in LED technologies and creates a breadth, scale and market reach that will benefit customers, technology resellers and strategic partners.”
Prior to being a wholly owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics America, Inc. Prismview, formerly known as Yesco Electronics, LLC was an affiliate of the Young Electric Sign Co. (“Yesco”).
