What are Backlit Displays?
Backlit displays come in the form of backlit posters, banners, or signs. They are meant to be used inside of light boxes to be illuminated at night for a special effect. Think about all the movie posters outside of a movie theater, or the illuminated ads at a bus stop – those are backlit signs. The lighting from the light boxes brings out the rich color and details of the backlit signage – and you can see this any time of day.
Our backlit signs are printed on Duratrans material, to quote the manufacturer:
“Kodak Professional Duratrans Display Material is a translucent-base color transparency material designed for producing large transparencies for backlit displays on illuminators without built-in diffusers.”
Duratrans is the brand name product from Kodak, but is often used to refer the material from any manufacturer. The current trade name used by Kodak is Enduratrans. Chromatrans is the trade name for background printed on Duratrans film by Pacific Studios.
