Greater Columbus Convention Centre, North America, installs first LG Direct View LED powered by Signagelive

The Greater Columbus Convention Centre recently completed a 22-month expansion and renovation project which included digital signage to direct, wayfind, and entertain. Including a 7ft x 60ft digital video wall in the main corridor that connects the north area of the convention centre to the south.

Coffman_LED_Wall

The Inspiration

The Westfield World Trade Centre Complex has a video wall which features a 4mm LED display that measures 280ft long with 16 continuous HD outputs that can be driven natively and included over 15 million pixels.

The vision was to give the Greater Columbus Convention Centre something similar but on a smaller scale. With the help of Reese Brothers Productions, it was decided that a video wall would be used and that the content would include art works created by local artists.

 

Coffmann_LED_Wall2

The Collaboration

Coffman Media was hired as the solutions integrator. As a solutions integrator, it is their job to lead the process of integrating the software with the hardware and will often collaborate with multiple sources to make this happen.

LG Electronics USA Business Solutions serves commercial display customers in the US digital signage market. LG provides access to some of the most advanced and flexible commercial display and accessories in the market, including their Direct View LED displays.

The LEDs were mounted with Peerless AV’s Smartmount video wall mounts that were custom created. The content was provided by Reese Brothers Productions using local artist’s work displayed throughout the Convention Centre, including the video wall, which created visually stimulating content pieces, engaging with onlookers to see what might be displayed next.

The content management system, or software, for the video wall is powered by Signagelive. Signagelive has created a platform that offers digital signage as a service and partners with over 440 resellers globally to provide software, servers, and support. Signagelive is a cloud-based software allowing you to manage any digital signage device, from PCs to Smart Signage displays, to now video walls – with a myriad of media player types, from your Internet browser.
