The videowall was deployed in irregular hexagon shape
Christie has revealed an unusually shaped display of its MicroTiles digital signage product has been installed in the lobby of the Stephen Hawking Centre at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Ontario, Canada. The 'dynamic media wall' comprises 84 MicroTiles installed in an 'irregular hexagon' with a 'V'-shaped base, and communicates on research and training, and welcome information to visitors.
"In the past we had plasma displays to impart basic information – times, dates, names. However, in expanding the research centre, the Christie MicroTiles's high-resolution capabilities, colour and clarity really took us to that next level where we could bring information to life in all new ways, including the display of highly detailed scientific images and computer-generated animations," says John Matlock, director of external relations and public affairs at the Perimeter Institute.
"Many different communities – researchers, trainees, students, teachers, members of the public and even our many stakeholders – pass by and speak in overwhelmingly positive tones about the media wall."
RP Visual Solutions constructed a consolidated back frame for the array to ensure the MicroTiles had narrow seams.
