The installation is part of an extensive renovation and expansion project completed in early 2017 for the Greater Columbus Convention Center, Columbus, Ohio. The system integration works were done by Coffman Media, a DS solutions provider.
The video wall is installed in a long passageway that connects the north area of the convention center to the south. Measuring 2.1m high by 18.2m wide it is reportedly inspired by the 85m long LED video wall of the World Trade Centre.
The video solution features 4mm Direct View LED technology from LG and is powered by Signagelive cloud-based software. The content to display is developed by Reese Brothers design studio and includes works of local artists.
The LEDs were mounted with Peerless AV‘s SmartMount video wall mounts that were custom created for the LG Direct View LEDs. Their mount features include cable management, easy hang hardware, and a pop-out mechanism if needed.
Commenting on the project Jason Cremins, CEO at Signagelive, said: “Jason and the Coffman Media team continue to raise the bar with their use of Signagelive for delivering visually stunning digital signage solutions. The LG Direct View LED display for Greater Columbus Convention Center demonstrates the ability for Signagelive to be used in any digital signage application from a single System on Chip Display through to an ultra-high resolution LED wall”.
Additionally, housed within the renovated atrium of the Greater Columbus Convention Center is an interactive art installation “As We Are”. Created by the Columbus College of Art & Design’s Matthew Mohr, the art piece features a 4m high three-dimensional universal human head made of LED ribbons. Guests can have their 3-D picture done in a special booth and then watch it projected on the head as a giant face for 30 seconds. The images are stored in a database and appear in a rotation.
