Luminator Message Writer and IPS
Software Fonts and Graphics.
When Luminator created its GTI Matrix signs, it allowed extended creativity in what could be
displayed on its signs over previous models. Having a full width grid of dots rather than a fixed
area for typed characters allowed for the versatility of fonts that were plain or bold face, many
different font sizes, placement variability, and the introduction of dot matrix graphics on their
signs. The ability was continued into later models of Luminator signs, including GTI MegaMAX,
Horizon LED, and Spectrum (full colour) LED signs.

This page is a directory of the various fonts available in the Luminator software, as well as a
directory of all the stock graphics Luminator provided with both their Message Writer (MW) and
IPS software programs.
