NEW YORK, March 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- D3 LED, LLC (D3), the world's leader in specialized LED (light emitting diode) digital display applications, has created a custom LED digital display for American lifestyle brand GUESS that was unveiled Feb. 17 at the opening of the brand's 13,000 square foot flagship store at 575 Fifth Avenue in New York City.
D3, headquartered in New York City and Rancho Cordova, Calif., was selected by GUESS in 2010 to design and manufacture the display for what is now the largest GUESS flagship store in the world. This display is the first installed on Fifth Avenue by D3, and first created for the iconic GUESS brand.

The 143,360-pixel screen, encased in a sleek aluminum frame, measures 9 feet 4 inches high by 6 feet 4 inches wide, and is capable of delivering live and pre-recorded video, plus photos and animations.
"D3 is pleased to have been selected by GUESS to be part of the new flagship store on Fifth Avenue, said Jason Barak, managing partner, D3. "Our LED digital display serves as an integral part of the store's overall brand experience for consumers."
Having created several of the industry's most talked about LED displays last year for Aeropostale, Disney Store, Forever 21 and Quiksilver, D3 continues its domination in 2011 as the leader in LED retail applications. D3 LED digital displays can be found throughout the world, and the Company is responsible for designing and manufacturing more than 70% of all LED digital displays in New York's Times Square since 2005.
