Title (EN) DISPLAY SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME D'AFFICHAGE
Abstract:
(EN) A display system is described having a plurality of display units, wherein each of the display units is movable between at least a first position and a second position, and wherein each display unit is provided with at least a first light emitting element. Each display unit may be configured to be rotatable about an axis thereof, such that the first position is defined as a first angular position of rotation about the axis, and the second position is defined as a second angular position of rotation about the axis. A method of operating a display system having a plurality of display units is also described, wherein each of the display units is movable between at least a first position and a second position, and wherein each display unit comprises at least a first light emitting element, the method including: moving the display units from the first position to the second position, thereby exposing a first display surface; controlling emission of light from the first light emitting element of each of the display units; and returning the display units to the first position.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système d'affichage à plusieurs unités d’affichage mobiles entre au moins une première position et une deuxième position et pourvues chacune d’au moins un élément photoémetteur. Chacune des unités d’affichage peut tourner autour de son axe, de manière à ce que la première position soit définie en tant que première position de rotation autour de l’axe, et que la deuxième position soit définie en tant que deuxième position de rotation autour de l’axe. L'invention porte également sur le procédé de fonctionnement d’un système d'affichage à plusieurs unités d’affichage mobiles entre au moins une première position et une deuxième position et comportant chacune au moins un premier élément photoémetteur, ledit procédé consistant à déplacer les unités de la première position à la deuxième de manière à exposer une première surface d’affichage; à contrôler l’émission de lumière de chaque unité; et à ramener les unités d’affichage à leur première position.
