VP of Systems Integration and Business Development Scott Carman utilizes PixelFLEX™ 1.9mm LED video to enhance the Equifax conference facility in Atlanta

Nashville, 11/29/2017 – Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, Equifax is a global information solutions company with offices in 24 countries worldwide. Taking pride in their unique data and technology solutions, the company recently opened a new facility in Atlanta, Georgia, and they wanted that uniqueness to be on full display from the moment visitors entered the doors. Working with A/V Integration firm Velocity Productions, the new construction project offered a blank canvas for the creation of the new lobby environment, which was transformed through an LED video design with 1.9mm TrueFLEX provided by Nashville-based PixelFLEX™.

“We had done some previous work with Equifax and when we started discussing this project, they made it clear they didn’t want to do a traditional 16×9 LED wall to simply show content, they wanted to do something unique,” said Scott Carman, Velocity Productions Vice President of Systems Integration and Business Development. “Since this would be a public-facing digital display for the lobby of their new building, they wanted an LED video experience, so we came up with a design using the TrueFLEX LED video that would truly get people’s attention.”

Designed to create seamless convex or concave curved video displays, TrueFLEX is an ideal solution for installations requiring an ultra fine pixel pitch and a high-resolution LED video pallet in a flexible format. Now available in 1.9mm, 2.5mm, 3.0mm, 4.0mm, 6mm and 10mm indoor pitch options, the TrueFLEX LED video system quickly and securely attaches to any surface and its fanless design allows for a no-noise LED display in any space. Its slim and ultra lightweight construction needs very little space for wiring, and the external sending and receiving control, paired with quality connectors, guarantee safe and reliable module connections.

“We knew that by using the PixelFLEX™ technology we would be able to create the type of unique LED display they wanted, plus we also have a division of our company called Velocity Studios that could create the complementary video content as well,” continued Carman. “As part of proposal, we were able to offer them a complete range of services to fully integrate all aspects of the LED video design, while still staying within the shortened time frame.”

As the team at Velocity Productions began the process of designing the digital display, they were given a wide canvas to work within on the new construction project. Taking advantage of the magnetic attaching capabilities of a TrueFLEX system, Carman was able to fabricate a custom frame to serve as the backbone for the design, and simplify the installation process.

“They wanted to position the LED display next to the staircase in their lobby that leads up to the executive offices in between two doors that lead to the conference area,” explained Carman. “In the design, we were limited somewhat on our height due to an HVAC soffit, but we had a very wide space of about 20 feet between the doors. To attach the display, we designed a square-tube, steel frame structure for all of the tiles to magnetize on, which really eased the installation process. We literally pushed the tiles into place as necessary and we ended up using 50 total TrueFLEX video tiles to complete the design.”

With the rigging aspects of the design now complete, Carman turned his attention to selecting the ideal pixel pitch and control system for the new display. In the lobby environment, a vibrant and clear display at all viewing distances would be a significant factor to the success of the completed design.

“We have been speaking with PixelFLEX™ about a number of different LED video projects and we love the variety of their product line,” added Carman. “For this project, we ended up using a 1.9mm pixel pitch solution because we knew that people would be within 3-4 feet of the LED display and we needed it to be crisp and clear in a very close proximity. We then used the Sending Unit control system provided by PixelFLEX™, and the BrightSign system for content management. All of the control lives in a tech closet that also houses the audio system which runs in conjunction with portions of the LED video content.”

Now that the LED video display was ready to come to life, Carman turned to the content development team at Velocity Studios. Using a standard b-roll provided by the client, Velocity Studios then took to the streets of Atlanta to bring the community into the dynamic new environment.

Carman continued, “We designed the layout so that there was a center section that could display the traditional 16:9 content provided by Equifax while the original content that would be created by Velocity Studios could be displayed simultaneously all around it. For an additional layer of creativity, they filmed different parts of the Atlanta community that could be shown in rotation, but taking it a step further, they also created a kaleidoscope of the video images for an even more dynamic experience. The intent was for this to be more of an art installation, instead of just a constant delivery of digital information, as this would be the benchmark install used as a model for additional locations worldwide.”

Time now to showcase the final LED video design to everyone involved in the project, Carman was anxious with anticipation. Understanding the challenges they faced with a shortened design schedule and the high expectations from their client, he was proud of the work completed by Velocity Productions and grateful for the assistance of the team at PixelFLEX™.

“Because it had been told to us that this project had a very high profile and company leadership found it critical to a successful launch of this facility, there was a great sense of enthusiasm around the unveiling of the finished design,” concluded Carman. “When everyone finally saw it, a lot of the creative team who were skeptical about what we were doing, were very impressed. PixelFLEX™ really did an amazing job and their team was fully committed to a streamlined design process. When it was all said and done, our client was extremely pleased and a large part of that was to our great working relationship.”

Experiential design specialists Advent creates an interactive and engaging visual experience for the new home of Stanford Athletics using FLEXLite NXG 3.9mm LED video wall 

Nashville, 11/21/2017– With more than a century of excellence filled with many talented players, coaches and champions, Stanford Athletics is heralded as one of the most successful NCAA athletic programs. Wanting to find a way to celebrate this rich history, the program recently unveiled the new 18,000-square foot Home of Champions. Designed to be a constantly-evolving guest experience, the university enlisted the assistance of the Nashville-based experiential design and consulting firm Advent to create an interactive and cutting-edge showcase using FLEXLite NXG 3.9mm LED video from PixelFLEX™.

“When first speaking with the University about the new Home of Champions, they really wanted the space to be a centralized showcase for Stanford Athletics, and to be an instigator for their brand highlighting what makes them truly unique,” began Drew Bryant, Design Principal, Advent. “Originally, the space was a basketball gym located in the middle of an office building that housed the Athletic offices, so they asked us to completely reimagine what the space could be. Since this is a program that is continuing to evolve with multiple successful teams, we knew we needed to give them the flexibility to showcase their story in a relevant and dynamic environment.”

Using front-serviceable video panels, plus seamless right-angle corner capabilities, FLEXLite NXG from PixelFLEX™ is one of the highest resolution LED video displays on the market today. Available in 2.6-6.25mm pitch options, plus a 6.25mm full outdoor IP65 version as well, the FLEXLite NXG 500mm x 500mm video tiles are calibrated directly out of the box to ensure perfect color and brightness to help realize the full potential of any LED video design.

Bryant continued, “When looking at the technology available, we knew one of the primary capabilities of the LED display was that it needed to have the ability to curve due to how it would be mounted on the wall. We also needed it to be capable of displaying high-resolution imagery, plus it needed to work with our proprietary backend display and CMS system, and PixelFLEX™ really did a great job of working with us to identify the ideal technology solution.”

As the renovation got underway, the design team began to look at how the LED video system would be mounted in the space. Using a custom framing system connected directly to the building’s sub-structure which cantilevers off the existing floor plates above, the team was able to quickly complete the installation only ten days into the one-month schedule.

“To get the LED video system installed into the space, each FLEXLite NXG cabinet is fastened to ¾” plywood which is then affixed to the steel work that is behind the visible wall,” explained John Downie, VP of Digital Experience, Advent. “Since we were in San Francisco, we also had to be very aware of the building codes as it relates to earthquake protection to make sure the LED video will remain in place should any movement occur.

With the LED video now mounted securely to the wall, Downie and team got to work configuring the control system that would bring the experience to life through the seamless integration PixelFLEX™ and Advent technologies.

“For control, the board presents as three different surfaces due to the horizontal layout and each board is then wired back via a CAT6 cable run to the server room which is only a couple hundred feet away,” continued Downie. “We then have three PixelFLEX™ sending units connected to a PC system running our software that binds all the elements together into one continuous display. This allows us to run our application seamlessly across the three displays as one colorful and dynamic canvas.”

Ready to now program the content that would achieve the visually-engaging, guest experience, the FLEXLite NXG LED display would be relied upon to set the tone of the environment. Using a combination of video highlights, accolades and an historical timeline, Advent developed a flexible series of templates, so the display was not only exciting, but customizable and easily updatable as well.

“It’s a very rich and diverse LED display that binds all the static and physical elements of the space together into one dynamic focal point,” said Downie. “The football coach can come in and show football content, the cross-country coach can show cross-country content, and then they can create messages for the public, students, or donors. It really achieves all the elements we were looking for today, but then it also allows us to keep the space fresh for future generations of Stanford athletes and fans.”

“When we first saw the imagery coming across the display, it was a great experience to see how the LED video manipulated the ambiance of the room in a beautiful fashion,” added Bryant. “It was very dramatic for all of us because at times, the FLEXLite NXG imagery can be subtle and provide a low-key ambiance, but then there are times when a coach can play a hype video with great audio to really get the heart of a high-profile recruit pounding.”

Opened to the public in September 2017, the new Stanford Home of Champions now houses over 40 displays which highlight the story behind a tradition of excellence in an interactive and engaging environment. More than just a museum, the team at Advent stands proud of the design behind the experience, and they are continuing to implement LED video into more of their innovative designs.

“It really is amazing how LED video allows your space to be dynamic and flexible while creating very impressionable moments, and the value of those moments can go much further than you could with a static display,” admitted Bryant. “The ability to customize information can be so powerful. If you have the right story, set up at the right time, then whoever is in the space has the ability to create the display that will best fit their needs for a much greater impact.”

“Since we are also based in Nashville, we’ve had the opportunity to work with PixelFLEX™ on a few projects now,” concluded Downie. “It’s very convenient to have a partner we can visit in their facility to test a few different solutions, and they always provide us with great engineering insight and technical expertise to design the exact LED system we need.”

1220 Exhibits oversees a complete A/V renovation for the 1.5 million-gallon aquarium which includes a dynamic lobby display with FLEXLite NXG 3.9mm LED video

Nashville, 11/7/2017 – Inspired to create unforgettable client experiences, 1220 Exhibits has become a nationally recognized leader in the production and installation of exhibits and commercial environments. Having worked with some of the most widely-known Museums, Universities and Sports Hall of Fame’s, 1220 Exhibits recently got the opportunity to work with Moody Gardens located in Galveston, Texas. Wanting to completely renovate the A/V and exhibit hall experience inside their Aquarium Pyramid, Moody Gardens needed a dynamic, new display for the lobby so 1220 Exhibits installed a FLEXLite NXG LED system from Nashville-based PixelFLEX™.

“We typically do the interior renovations for a number of different corporate environments, but this was our first time working with Moody Gardens,” began Dan Chadwick, Director of Interactive Services, 1220 Exhibits.  “With the project, we won the bid to oversee the complete A/V installation for the renovation of the Aquarium Pyramid where the original design for the lobby called for a 25K projector system. Once we ran the numbers, we were able to show how using a LED video system would be a better long-term solution while giving them a much more compelling digital display for the lobby experience.”

“One of our primary goals with this renovation was to create a dynamic, immersive experience for guests the moment they stepped foot in the Aquarium Pyramid,” said John Zendt, President/CEO Moody Gardens. “The clarity and crispness of the image on the PixelFLEX™ video wall helps us achieve this goal and is exactly what we hoped for from this design.”

With fully front-serviceable video panels, plus seamless right-angle corner capabilities, FLEXLite NXG is one of the highest resolution LED video displays on the market today. Available in 2.6-6.25mm pitch options, plus a 6.25mm full outdoor IP65 version as well, the FLEXLite NXG 500mm x 500mm video tiles are calibrated directly out of the box to ensure perfect color and brightness to help realize the full potential of any LED video design.

Chadwick continued, “Since all of the exhibit houses at Moody Gardens are built in a pyramid-style with the outer façade being made of glass, we knew there would be an uncontrollable amount of natural light that would bleed into the space. Because of this, they would need to install a fairly large projector to counteract the natural light, and even at its maximum capacity, a projection system would not provide the image quality that we could achieve with the high-definition FLEXLite NXG 3.9mm LED wall.”

As the system installation got underway, the LED video panels would be mounted high above the crowd on a curved wall greeting guests as they arrive. In a busy A/V renovation schedule where time is an asset, the design features of the FLEXLite NXG system added an additional benefit to the project, allowing it to install quickly and easily.

“The completed video wall now measures 20-feet wide by 10-feet high and is mounted over a stairwell approximately 15-20 feet above the ground,” added Chadwick. “To connect the panels to the curved mounting wall, we first removed the drywall and fastened ¾” plywood to the metal sub-structure underneath. We then bolted the panels directly to the plywood with about a 5-degree curve. We ended up using 72 total FLEXLite NXG panels and it went pretty smooth as we completed the full LED video system installation in only three days.”

Now ready to begin sending content through the LED video system, the digital display would become both an informational and an excitement generating element to the renovated Aquarium Pyramid. Wanting a true, attention-grabbing experience for the guests, Chadwick knew the high-definition capabilities of FLEXLite NXG would give Moody Gardens exactly what they needed.

“The content for the lobby display is being driven by a custom-built Watch-Out computer with a full HD signal being sent through a PixelFLEX™ sending unit,” explained Chadwick. “The video itself shows a short intro movie to the new Aquarium Pyramid, then it switches over to the daily schedule for the events taking place throughout the exhibit. The video then plays in a loop as part of the completely renovated lobby experience and it’s doing a great job of getting visitors excited from the moment they walk in the door.”

With the full project complete, Moody Gardens opened the doors to the renovated Aquarium Pyramid, allowing guests to now explore the oceans of the world in a 1.5 million-gallon aquarium. Operating in a busy theme park environment, system integrators must be able to ensure the product solutions durability, which is another reason Chadwick took a look at PixelFLEX™.

“We chose PixelFLEX™ because they were a trusted LED video manufacturer and we wanted to have a partner that we could count on to help us create the design we wanted,” concluded Chadwick. “As the entrance focal point for the renovated Aquarium Pyramid, the feedback we have received has been amazing. Everyone has been extremely pleased with how crisp and clear the high-resolution imagery comes through, and we have had multiple comments that the FLEXLite NXG LED video was a fantastic solution for the new lobby display.”

When designing a new project, architects face numerous challenges to deliver clients designs that are not only efficient, practical, and functional, but also unique and beautiful. Coming up with bold and creative new ways to set a new space apart from any other or achieve the desired look and experience is increasingly difficult to do.   However, as both interiors and exteriors are becoming smarter and more advanced, and the materials and technologies themselves evolve, architects and designers find themselves with more room to explore and more boundaries to push. Utilizing LED Wall technology for both interior and exterior applications opens up a new world of creative possibilities for dreamers to construct that will stand out, connect, inspire, and communicate with customers.

There are an endless variety of applications for LED Wall technology in contemporary design, from outdoor signage to grand artistic expressions. With LEDs, even a 33,000-square meter,160 story facade can be used as a blank canvas in a myriad of creative and eye-catching ways.

Currently, the largest and highest LED Wall in the world is not actually a wall, it’s also the tallest skyscraper! The skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, doubles as the screen itself! With 163 floors to cover, this massive project required 72 kilometers of cabling and 10,000 connectors to cover a total facade area of 33,000 square meters. The results are both beautiful and majestic, as seen during the 2017 New Year celebration when the entire structure was lit up with artists’ work. The Burj Khalifa has since issued an open call to artists to use the facade as their blank canvas, making an already iconic skyscraper even more eye-catching.

Another example of a creative and innovative use of LED technology in a unique, fun, and cutting-edge design is the Roskilde Pavilion by BIG Architects of Denmark. The architect was inspired by the inflatable castles of his youth and so designed a foam pavilion that inflates in just 7 minutes into a 120-square meter canopy. The entire pavilion is lit by a changing palette of colorful LEDs that illuminate the canopy, and party goers, with whimsical light.

LED technology also has a vital communication role to play in the form of signage. Approximately 71% of consumers claimed to have seen and absorbed large format advertising, showing that bold, striking LED signage can greatly boost brand awareness to the passing public.

LED Walls are not only a way to create unique designs that stand out or a powerful tool to harness for strong communication; they also open endless opportunities for creativity and expression in architecture. LEDs bring attention to the structure, enhance the beauty of the design, and inspire admiration in viewers.   Just like the Burj Khalifa, the world, every building, every space is a blank canvas ready to be filled with an immersive, beautiful, and powerful LED experience.  It just requires an architect who is flexible and has an eye for the future, and a

a company that believes the same and takes pride in being just as flexible as the designs themselves. Often this means helping architects to create something entirely new for the marketplace. PixelFLEX’s goal is to offer solutions that fit their clients’ individual needs, working in tandem with them and their visions to create brand new solutions and stay ahead of trends.

 

PixelFLEX is an innovative LED solutions provider based in Nashville, Tennessee, offering dependable, award-winning LED technology, and reliable, flexible service. For architects whose creative vision requires flexibility and the freedom to customize, PixelFLEX strives to help make their visions realities that work just as imagined and stand out from the rest.

VP of Creative Direction David Warwick creates a relaxing beach environment for the Vionic Shoes showroom at 1370 Avenue of the America’s using FLEXLite II 3.9mm LED video

Nashville, 11/2/2017– Bringing together style and science, global footwear brand Vionic Shoes has seen a continued growth which prompted a recent move into a new showroom space located at 1370 Avenue of Americas in New York City. In this new environment where reps and buyers would be enticed to purchase the latest innovative shoe designs for their retail locations, a new brand was also being launched, Vionic Beach. Needing a way to make sure the latest in life-changing footwear didn’t get lost on the showroom floor, the retail presence and showroom designer David Warwick created a unique and immersive LED video beach experience using FLEXLite II 3.9mm LED from PixelFLEX™.

“With the growth of the Vionic Shoes brand, we were very fortunate to secure the showroom space at the Avenue of the America’s, and we wanted to create a space that would build the brand for our reps,” began Warwick. “At the same time, we were also introducing a new, beach lifestyle brand called Vionic Beach which is based on our heritage from Australia. In the large showroom space, I didn’t want Vionic Beach to get missed when reps or buyers came through, so we designed a unique space with its own personality using the FLEXLite LED to really make it stand-out.”

FLEXLite LED from PixelFLEX™ is an economical and dynamic solution which provides both indoor and outdoor solutions ideal for any retail environment. With its bright, dense display and high refresh rate, FLEXLite tiles are calibrated directly out of the box to ensure perfect color and brightness, and its easy access back panels allow for simple on-site repairs without the hassle of removing the entire back of a tile.

Warwick continued, “Once we started working with the layout of the showroom, there was a central area that really stood out as the best location for the Vionic Beach display because it was a lovely, blank wall that was about 10-feet high and 8-feet wide. From there we started looking at what type of technology we could to use to create the wow-factor for the buyers and draw their attention to the new brand. Since this would also serve as a prototype for what we could do at the retail locations, we didn’t want the normal product stands and static displays. That wouldn’t give us the excitement I was looking to create which is why we decided to go with an LED video solution.”

Knowing now he wanted to use LED video for the retail design, Warwick began to take a look at industry examples of what the technology could do.  Searching online, he came across one solution that was right in line with what he was looking to create, and that also led him to PixelFLEX™.

“I have been wanting to use LED video in the retail environment for a while now, so I did some reconnaissance. One of the locations that really jumped out to me was a Nordstrom’s in Toronto that had a wall of PixelFLEX™ LED in the shoe area reinforcing the product with dynamic video of a trail runner. It was so immersive, and a really nice way to showcase product, capture attention and tell the story much better than static displays.”

Ready to move forward with a PixelFLEX™ solution, Warwick began to work with the team in Nashville to find the right technology. Not wanting to be held back by product limitations, he was happy to find the many PixelFLEX™ options available that would be powerful enough to create the new environment, while simple enough for a showroom manager to control.

“Once I got into looking at the product lines, I saw the multitude of creative options with PixelFLEX™ which was great because we didn’t want to be constrained by having to design around the LED solution. I wanted something thin with an intensity of color that was easy to install. Plus, it needed to be a solution that the IT department could do a simple plug-and-play for the content, and one that would work consistently for the showroom manager each morning with the flip of a switch.”

With the FLEXLite II LED video solution identified, the team got ready for the installation in the new showroom, but as part of a larger installation, the LED video needed to go up quickly and easily in order to keep the opening on schedule.

“The service we received from PixelFLEX™ was excellent from day one,” added Warwick. “We ended up building a freestanding structure that stood in front of the wall and then attached the FLEXLite LED to the back of the unit. The whole installation was completed in only a couple of hours, and for the control, it’s wired perfectly into the showroom so that all the manager has to do is walk in, turn it on, and away it goes.”

Now open to customers, suppliers, business partners and media members wanting a look at the latest Vionic Shoes innovations, the new LED video design for Vionic Beach is performing beautifully. Taking visitors on a quick trip back to a relaxing memory of sand between their toes, the FLEXLite II LED display is using the power of digital media make a true connection in the retail experience.

“The entire goal of the project was to have the LED video immerse the viewer into the brand of Vionic Beach so the content is a relaxing beach environment with palm trees swaying in the breeze and the ocean rolling in behind it,” concluded Warwick. “When you look at it, it’s one of those magical moments in retail design where it all simply comes together as it was meant to be. We have had numerous buyers who will literally stop to take it all in.  Anytime you can incorporate movement into the retail space it always works better because with everyone being so bombarded with brands and digital information, LED video cuts through and allows you to connect very quickly.”

Video walls have been growing in popularity at houses of worship, largely due to their brightness, image clarity, and limitless configuration possibilities. They’re also long-lasting and cost effective. Whether you are looking to display song lyrics, sermon points, or live IMAG video, LED walls help project your message in an unforgettable way to captivate your congregation. But video walls are not just useful inside the sanctuary. They can also be used for digital signage throughout the rest of the facility and beyond.

Here are some tips and considerations when planning to add an LED video wall:

Consider the size of screen that you need: Video screens can be as small or as large as desired, so think about how you’ll be using your LED display. Do you want to make a major impact, or do you need to convey information in a more intimate way? A welcoming LED wall, for example, needs to be much larger than a coffee counter menu video display.

Think about location: If the goal of your video wall is to welcome visitors and worshippers, it needs to be visible to every person as they enter your facility. And don’t forget to consider possible outdoor installation locations as well as those inside the sanctuary. If it’s purpose is to direct traffic, make sure it’s in a spot that the masses will be able to see.

Plan for the installation: Will you mount your video display to a wall, or will it be free-standing? Also, consider whether you’ll be able to hide cables and power cords, or if you’ll need to look at other methods of stowing them away.

Examine the surrounding area: How bright is the area where your LED wall or display will be situated? Does your LED wall have to be visible in sunlight, such as a roadside digital LED sign, or will it be used only in a darkened room?

Consider content: Initially, you may only plan to display images and text. But eventually, you may want to create a welcome video or showcase live worship services. You need to consider how you will control and feed content to your walls. Choose a video controller that not only controls and feeds content to your walls now, but also fits your goals for the future.

Prepare for the future: Think about how you’ll want to use your video wall in years to come. As your congregation grows, you’ll want your capabilities to keep pace.

LED video displays can be powerfully deployed throughout your facility to reinforce your message, providing a moving, inspirational worship experience that will not only capture the attention of your congregation, but increase interaction as well. PixelFLEX offers seamless large-format LED displays in a variety of resolutions, providing clear and detailed image displays, with the freedom to reconfigure as much as you want to fit your message.

In addition, we at PixelFLEX understand that there may be a learning curve involved in transitioning to LED display technology. That’s why we offer 24/7 Technical Support, a 2-year product warranty, and service contract options with every one of our LED display products. So not only is your product fully covered — so is your investment.

Considering all the advantages, there’s never been a better time to install an LED wall in your church or house of worship!
