Colegio San Luis Maristas - Barranco Engages Students with ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays

CASE STUDY

Colegio San Luis Maristas - Barranco Engages Students with ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays

CUSTOMER PROFILE

Founded in 1923 as one of ten Catholic schools in Peru, the Brarranco branch of the Colegio San Luis Maristas serves students from kindergarten through high school.

The founders of the school were heavily infl uenced by the teachings of St. Marcellin Champagnat, a Catholic saint who was devoted to education. Today, there are over 900 students currently enrolled at the Colegio San Luis Maristas – Barranco campus.

Colegio San Luis Maristas logoColegio San Luis Maristas logo

"One of the benefits of these displays is that they combine the best of both hybrid and in-person classroom setups. Educators can access Zoom, Google Drive, OneDrive and other popular applications to create a richer learning experience.”


— Renzo Urresty, High School Communication Teacher.

THE CHALLENGE

line drawing of a circular mazeline drawing of a circular maze
  • The Colegio San Luis Maristas wanted to streamline and modernize its campus for the return of in-person learning.

In 2021, administrators were tasked with preparing their campus for the return of in-person learning. Although it had been less than two years since students had started learning remotely, in that time, the learning landscape in Peru had shifted dramatically. Students had become accustomed to using computers, laptops and other devices during lessons rather than just learning from whiteboards and textbooks.

Administrators began to seek out solutions that would work cross-functionally with their existing devices and educational software programs that the teachers had adopted. Additionally, administrators were also seeking a solution with features that would enhance learning, such as QR code scanning, questionnaire management and interactive quizzes.

“Children could not go back to traditional learning. They had already been studying through their displays for quite some time. They were used to screens already so the best decision was to look for an alternative for their continued interaction and participation in their pedagogical development in the classroom,” said Renzo Urresty, a communications teacher at the Colegio San Luis Maristas.

According to Maria del Carmen Marini, a fellow kindergarten and first grade teacher, “It’s not easy to be in a classroom in front of 40 students from a different generation who are more familiar with the technology than the teachers.”

In 2019, chalk and whiteboards were still heavily in use at the school. Administrators were mindful that some educators struggled with newer forms of technology and their ultimate solution needed to provide training and support to help get their staff up to speed.

THE SOLUTION

line drawing of a jigsaw puzzle pieceline drawing of a jigsaw puzzle piece
  • 29 ViewBoard® 75” IFP7550-3 interactive displays and WMK-047-2 fixed wall mounts

  • myViewboard Pro license entity accounts

  • Hands-on training for over 50 educators on myViewBoard software and Whiteboard for Windows

After weeks of deliberation, the Colegio San Luis Maristas ultimately selected ViewSonic to equip 29 classrooms with 75” ViewBoard® IFP7550-3 interactive displays and accompanying WMK-047-2 fixed wall mount brackets. 14 displays and brackets were to be sent to its elementary school, 10 to its secondary school and five to its kindergarten classrooms. Additionally, educators also received myViewBoard® entity accounts and access to training so that they could make the most of their new devices.

“One of the benefits of these displays is that they combine the best of both hybrid and in-person classroom setups. Educators can access Zoom, Google Drive, OneDrive and other popular applications to create a richer learning experience,” said Urresty.

Another benefit of using ViewSonic products is the ease of setup and deployment. Although the ViewBoard interactive displays arrived on February 28, the displays were installed and set up by the time students started school in April.

THE RESULTS

Line drawing of a rocketLine drawing of a rocket
  • Students at all grade levels are actively engaging with the material and student performance has dramatically risen in multiple areas.

  • Interactive displays were set up and installed in less than a month.

  • Thanks to training, educators were able to develop higher levels of digital competency.

  • Learning is more equitable as lessons can be turned in without a printer.

  • Students have moved from passive learning to actively collaborating and experimenting.

Since the Colegio San Luis Maristas installed its ViewBoard interactive displays and implemented training, educators reported a significant increase in student engagement and interest in lessons. At the kindergarten level, teachers have been impressed by their students’ ability to learn and interact with this new technology.

“The youngest children have had two years of virtual learning and have adapted naturally to these tools and games that enable them to leverage displays and get actively involved in their own learning. During a lesson, students can take turns leaving once they’re done and the screen can be split into three sections, resulting in high interaction,” explained Marini.

ViewSonic educational solutions have also helped to reduce inequality as well. Students in higher grades no longer need to purchase a printer and ink to complete their homework – a proposition that is as expensive as it is unreliable. Thanks to the ViewSonic companion app, students can synchronize their devices with a simple QR code. Students can then answer questions, share content and get information on lessons and coursework.

The Colegio San Luis Maristas was pleased to fi nd that student performance improved in multiple areas following the adoption of ViewSonic myViewBoard® software.

“The Colegio San Luis Maristas has excelled in leveraging the benefi ts of inclass interactivity and teacher training. Educating teachers has in turn enabled them to connect to today’s students – who are extremely savvy when it comes to interactive experiences. ViewSonic ViewBoard displays encourage students to step outside of the realm of rote learning and memorization and pivot to engaging, interactive lessons that simulate all of their senses and enhance student involvement. This is a defi nitive step forward for modernizing the Colegio San Luis Maristas,” said Alex Carlos, ViewSonic Territory Manager for Peru, Columbia and Ecuador.

Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) Finds Versatile Hybrid Education Solution in ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays

CASE STUDY

Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) Finds Versatile Hybrid Education Solution in ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays

SCHOOL

Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) was founded in 1994 and has been a member of Laureate International Universities, the largest network of private universities in the world, since September 2004. UPC’s vision is to be at the forefront of higher education for its academic excellence and innovation. UPC currently has over 60,000 students, 58 undergraduate programs and more than 20 graduate programs across four campuses in Lima, Peru.

"We decided to use the ViewBoard interactive displays because they gave us the ease of connecting any type of device. It was also from one of the few brands that could provide the equipment quickly during the pandemic, coupled with our trust in ViewSonic and the relationship we had already built”


— SILVANA BALAREZO, UPC DIGITAL LEARNING EXPERIENCE MANAGER

THE CHALLENGE

line drawing of a circular mazeline drawing of a circular maze
  • Leverage professors’ digital literacy and use of technology during the pandemic. 

  • Engage in hybrid education that is neither complex for teachers to use nor a distraction in their teaching process. 

Following the pandemic, UPC leaders wanted to foster a return to in-person education, without losing the technology literacy they had gained after two years of lockdown.

“We were looking for a technological proposal that would not be complex for teachers to use or distract them from their teaching process, and we wanted a technology that could be feasible over time to take advantage of all the lessons learned by teachers and students,” says Silvana Balarezo, Digital Learning Experience Manager at UPC.

UPC had already been using ViewSonic® ViewBoard® interactive displays in academic environments, creative rooms and a pilot student project which still continues today.

“We decided to use the ViewBoard interactive displays because they gave us the ease of connecting any type of device. It was also from one of the few brands that could provide the equipment quickly during the pandemic, coupled with our trust in ViewSonic and the relationship we had already built,” Balarezo said.

One of UPC’s main objectives was that students benefit from any education mode. If a student attended face-to-face lessons, they should feel that it was worth coming to the campus, and an online student should feel as if they were inside the classroom sharing the same experience as their classmates, with no need to come to the physical classroom. 

This is the reason why UPC adopted the Hyflex concept in which hybrid classrooms are designed to function as physical, 100% remote or both, without affecting education quality or the learning experience in thanks to the equipment used.

“Our mission was to make professors feel comfortable in the classroom. We didn’t want them to feel that they were in a recording studio,” said Balarezo. “The classroom needed to have the technological tools to motivate learning and support collaborative activities between face-to-face and online students.”

THE SOLUTION

line drawing of a circular mazeline drawing of a circular maze
  • Leverage professors’ digital literacy and use of technology during the pandemic. 

  • Engage in hybrid education that is neither complex for teachers to use nor a distraction in their teaching process. 

ViewSonic set up 72 classrooms with ViewBoard IFP8650 86” Ultra HD 4K displays, along with VPC25-W33-P1 slot-in PCs with Windows 10 Pro, and Viewboard Cast™ software for Windows licenses. This setup allowed students and teachers to make wireless presentations from any of their devices to the displays using a licensed application.

In addition, UPC added wireless physical classroom microphones for teachers and students, a pro camera for streaming and a secondary display so that the teacher can view and manage remote students. This very successful layout was designed after taking into account UPC’s previous experiences with online and hybrid classrooms.

“We should highlight that the ViewSonic slot-in PCs, which are installed on the back of the ViewBoard display, deliver computing power without the traditional wiring required to connect a PC,” said Balarezo. “This provides a user-friendly environment for professors to manage the display, the online sessions, and the use of online classrooms and videoconferences.” 

In addition, a teacher certification process was implemented for the ViewBoard displays. UPC currently has 200 certified professors and 800 teachers undergoing the certification process.

“Our professors were initially apprehensive because of what we had experienced during the pandemic, but once classes started, students also accepted the new education mode. Today, faculty members encourage diversified student interaction in the classroom, including online and face-to-face student groups and work, in addition to promoting autonomous learning,” said Balarezo. 

THE RESULTS

Line drawing of a rocketLine drawing of a rocket
  • Customized learning, access to different educational services and review with recorded lessons.

  • Teacher-friendly technology as if they were using a PC, tablet or cell phone.

  • UPC became a modern, diverse and inclusive teaching university.

Students highly value the possibility of choosing between face-to-face or online learning, with the same advantages and benefits in either learning mode. 

Professors value the convenience and agility with which they work using the ViewBoard interactive displays, including the myViewBoard® Whiteboard software for highlighting and creating content, which helps to provide better presentations. 

“Having a group of face-to-face and online students provides a lot of flexibility to interact. It is essential for the development of autonomous learning and also for students to feel engaged and identify with the university,” said Elías Neira, Education History and Philosophy Professor at UPC.

ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays Bring 21st Century Presentation Capabilities to the Greater LA Council of the Boy Scouts of America

CASE STUDY

ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays Bring 21st Century Presentation Capabilities to the Greater LA Council of the Boy Scouts of America

COMPANY

Founded in 1915, the Greater Los Angeles Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America is dedicated to preparing young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. The program presents fun, engaging, and valuable experiences directed at the maturity and interests of the young people at their appropriate age and ability levels. The purpose of the Greater Los Angeles Area Council is to meaningfully and proactively offer leadership for the delivery and quality of the program, to assemble and train volunteers, and to gather resources to implement and promote the program to parents, youth, and the general community in the Greater Los Angeles Areas.

"The 4K images are beautiful and the ViewSonic ViewBoard displays are so easy to use. They’re great for hybrid as well as in-person meetings, when some participants can’t be there in the room with us.”


— KEVIN BURTON, GREATER LOS ANGELES AREA COUNCIL IT ANALYST

PROBLEM

line drawing of a circular mazeline drawing of a circular maze
  • The Greater LA Council’s presentation technology was aging and in need of an upgrade. 
  • Existing technology limited resource sharing and had limited presentation capabilities. 

Effective meetings are critical to the operations of Boy Scouts of America Councils across the country. Regularly scheduled volunteer training sessions, as well as staff and Scout and Board of Directors meetings, keep the Councils on track and achieving their youth service goals. At the Greater Los Angeles Area Council building, the main training space was in clear need of an upgrade. Dating back to the building’s grand opening in 2008, the wiring was becoming glitchy and the presentation technology was more than outdated.

“We were making do with screens and projectors that were arleady old when they were donated,” said Charlie Wilson, the Council’s Director of Finance and Performance Management, who noted that as thrifty Scouts, they rely heavily on donations. “By the time we were thinking about upgrading, it was a very old system. The wiring was going bad. The colors were going bad. The mic wasn’t working. It was, to put it simply, a disaster.”

The disaster cleanup plan called for an up-to-date mobile solution that could be used throughout the facility, in addition to the large main meeting and training space, which itself could be bisected into two smaller spaces.

“We wanted to achieve an upgrade that would meet our needs now and for a long time coming,” said Kevin Burton, the Council’s IT Analyst. “At minimum we needed a new screen and a new sound system, so we looked to a third party for help.”

Wilson, Burton, and the Council’s Director of Support Service, Steve Smith, reached out to AV expert and Eagle Scout, John Brown, to provide that assistance.

“John is a big fan of Scouting and he’s CEO of The Showpros, an AV company that’s donated a lot of work to our Council,” said Burton. “It turned out that he’s also a big fan of ViewSonic and their products, and with his connections we were able to receive two donated ViewSonic® ViewBoard® displays and mobile carts.” 

Set up, said Burton, was fast and easy.

“Our ViewSonic rep offered to come help,” he said. “But we didn’t need it. John and I just got out our screwdrivers, assembled the stands, and had the ViewBoard interactive flat panel displays up and going in no time.”

RESULTS

  • Embedded ViewBoard features boost the efficiency and productivity of Board meetings, staff meetings and volunteer trainings
  • Presentations are easy to view, with crisp 4K images and the ability to position the displays based on seating/goals
  • Mobile carts enable cost-effective resource sharing

Since the deployment of the new displays, the Council has used them for every training, staff meeting and board of directors meeting.

“The 4K images are beautiful and the ViewSonic ViewBoard displays are so easy to use,” said Burton. “They’re great for hybrid as well as in-person meetings, when some participants can’t be there in the room with us.”

Flexibility, the Council team agreed, is another valuable feature of the new presentation equipment.

“Not only can we deliver outstanding meetings and presentations, but these displays are also terrific when used like a whiteboard,” said Burton. “For example, the Board members like to put a PowerPoint presentation on one screen and take notes on the other screen.”

Annotating directly onto presentation content also comes in handy, he added, noting a recent website redesign meeting where the team was able to highlight and draw directly on the proposed designs.

Beyond the flexibility of features inherent to the ViewBoard displays, the ViewSonic mobile carts enable the Council to use the displays in a number of ways, extending the value of the resource.

“We can use one in each of the main training rooms, or use them together as mentioned,” said Burton. “Then, when they’re needed in another space in our facilities, it’s simple to move them there as well. It’s also handy to be able to reposition them within a room, depending on the seating arrangement and goals of the meeting. We could even use them outside in our pocket park.”

The team looks forward to finding additional ways to leverage their new cutting-edge presentation technology.

“We are so grateful to ViewSonic and The Showpros,” said Burton. “We are getting so much use out of these displays, and we know we’ll keep finding ways to use them, including having more Scouts themselves use them to give presentations.”

The capabilities of their new presentation system outshine anything any of them have seen at other regional Council meetings. While maintaining the humbleness of Scouts, the team is clearly pleased with being a trailblazer in Scouting presentation technology.

“These presentation capabilities are a first for the Scouts,” said Smith. “I’ve worked at several Councils and have been to many Scout meetings. This is the first one to have this level of AV equipment available to its staff and volunteers.”

Gatineau-Based Private School Adopts ViewSonic Digital Learning Solution to Navigate A Changing Landscape



Case Study

Gatineau-Based Private School Adopts ViewSonic Digital Learning Solution to Navigate A Changing Landscape

Company

For the Collège Nouvelles-Frontières private high school in Gatineau, the pandemic has proven to be a catalyst for innovation. Like many schools, Nouvelles-Frontières had to quickly adapt its existing technology resources to accommodate a distance learning model. The early months of the pandemic were the ideal starting point for the school to develop an entirely new, flexible approach to distance learning that would serve the students’ and teachers’ needs in both the short and long term. One key to its successful transition was investing in ViewSonic’s interactive teaching platform to improve collaboration, increase engagement and ensure that learning could continue uninterrupted – whether students were in the classroom or at home.

Overview

Problem:

  • The technology they had previously had limited applications for distance learning due to issues around image quality, camera performance and connectivity

Solution:

  • ViewSonic ViewBoard® and myViewBoard™ Software

Result:

  • All requirements were met and/or exceeded
  • School’s administration team can remotely control its displays
  • Students are more engaged and can concentrate more easily from home
  • Mac, iOS, Android and Windows formats accommodate presentations and guest speakers

We realized that providing state-of-the-art tools to teachers would be beneficial in managing future waves of the pandemic and would ensure that we could always deliver quality teaching to our students whatever the situation.

— Serge Lévesque, Coordinator of Computer and Material Resources

Problem

According to Serge Lévesque, coordinator of computer and material resources at the Collège Nouvelles-Frontières, the early days of distance learning were difficult because of technological limitations. When Gatineau went into lockdown in the spring, the school was already using projectors and tablets. However, due to issues around image quality, camera performance and connectivity, the technology had limited applications for distance learning.

“It became more difficult when we moved to combined distance and in-class education, with students at school and others at home,” says Lévesque. “We realized that providing state-of-the-art tools to teachers would be beneficial in managing future waves of the pandemic and would ensure that we could always deliver quality teaching to our students whatever the situation.”

The quest was on to find a platform that met the needs of educators, engaged students and was simple to use. After conducting an exhaustive search of different technology platforms, the Collège Nouvelles-Frontières chose the ViewSonic® ViewBoard® advanced interactive teaching platform.

The ViewSonic ViewBoard® education ecosystem includes platform-agnostic interactive flat panel displays and digital whiteboarding software designed for the rapidly evolving needs of today’s education environments. The myViewBoard™ software platform is full-featured, connecting the school’s students and teachers in a more dynamic and engaging way by enabling real-time collaboration from any location, with cloud-based portability, screen mirroring/sharing and digital whiteboarding.

Today, all classes at Collège Nouvelles-Frontières use ViewSonic ViewBoard displays. Because the technology is wireless, it reduces the need for additional projectors and speakers. “Previously we had a lot of wires, and a lot of technical problems,” recalls Lévesque, who says he appreciates the ability to simplify their systems through a single product that meets all the needs of students and teachers, “The ViewSonic solution replaces everything.”

Optional features include the ability to import files, such as lecture notes, from third-party software. Teachers can also browse the web or open apps directly from the interactive screen, saving time that would have otherwise been spent repurposing content. In addition, educators are empowered to choose the collaboration software they need based on their specific requirements. Using vCast™ software, students can even share content from their tablet or computer onto the classroom whiteboard.

Solution

myViewBoard software supports both Mac and iOS environments and is also compatible with Android and Windows formats. Lévesque says this feature was critical in accommodating the presentations of invited external speakers who use different platforms.

Using the myViewBoard.com website, the school’s administration team can remotely control its displays. Administrators and staff can open, close, broadcast and update content without having to physically move to each room.

In the event of a return to remote learning, myViewBoard will enable teachers to run an effective and efficient virtual classroom. With features like virtual discussion groups and warnings when a student is not paying attention, teachers are able to create a more informed learning experience tailored to students’ needs.

As the year progresses, the administration will also be able to use interactive whiteboards to disseminate promotional material and relevant information during open houses and parent meetings. “We will be able to move them everywhere depending on how we need to use them,” says Lévesque.

Lévesque notes that the interactive ViewSonic learning platform stimulates students and improves their concentration, regardless of whether the teaching is done in the classroom, at home, or across different places simultaneously.

Result

Lévesque adds that the Collège Nouvelles-Frontières is known within the education sector as a leader in integrating new technologies, “It’s always been our trademark, but it has to make sense for students.”

In fact, Collège Nouvelles-Frontières showcases its latest investment in ViewSonic solutions in its recruitment campaigns as a way to distinguish itself from other schools.

Whether the school year is managed in class or remotely, Collège Nouvelles- Frontières is ready for any situation that might arise in the coming year, says Lévesque. “Everyone’s tasks will be optimized with this new technology.”

ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays Help Boost Classroom Engagement for Colegio Bautista de Tamuco




Case Study

ViewSonic ViewBoard Interactive Displays Help Boost Classroom Engagement for Colegio Bautista de Tamuco








Company

Colegio Bautista de Temuco is a Baptist college located in Temuco, Chile and was founded by a missionary named Guillermo Mac Donald. Through his missionary work, Mac Donald established contacts with the Southern Baptist Convention of the United States and managed to receive resources to buy land and build the first building of the Baptist College, today known as the Guillermo Mac Donald building.

Classes at the Colegio Bautista began on March 15, 1922, with 10 externs and 10 interns. Today, Colegio Bautista de Temuco is deeply committed to its students, faculty and administration. Together, they hope to successfully deliver comprehensive education for its students in kindergarten through high school.





Overview



Problem:

  • Students and teachers needed to adapt to online teaching and learning during the pandemic
  • Staff needed to improve technology skills teaching




Solution:

  • Installation of 15 ViewBoard IFP7550 75-inch interactive displays in classrooms
  • Deployment of myViewBoard digital whiteboard software




Result:

  • Interactive lessons that are easy to share and deliver
  • Increased lesson engagement and focus
  • The school is fulfilling its mission to integrate technology into its classrooms, and
  • improving students’ technology skills











We were looking for something that would accommodate the school’s reality as well as our expectations, and ViewSonic exceeded those expectations.

— José Luis Salinas, Rector of Colegio Bautista de Temuco




Problem




Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Chile, like many other countries, sought to protect its citizens via quarantines, school closings and similar actions. As a result, students and teachers needed to adapt quickly to online learning and teaching. In addition, students and teachers needed to learn how to use new technologies that enabled remote education.

Colegio Bautista began looking for interactive displays that could better help its teachers deliver their lessons from any location. Featuring 4K Ultra HD resolution, a responsive 20-point touchscreen, and included myViewBoard® software that enabled teachers to deliver remote lessons, ViewSonic® ViewBoard® interactive displays were exactly what the school needed.




“We were looking for something that would accommodate the school’s reality as well as our expectations, and ViewSonic exceeded those expectations,” said José Luis Salinas, Rector of Colegio Bautista de Temuco.











Solution




Colegio Bautista de Temuco’s administration searched for interactive displays, and the 75-inch ViewBoard® IFP7550 display won them over. The school met with ViewSonic to discuss display features, learn about the myViewBoard software ecosystem that runs on the ViewBoard displays, and find out first-hand how everything worked.




Salinas learned that not only would the ViewBoard displays serve as a great classroom collaboration tool, but they would also help Colegio Bautista de Temuco’s students become more familiar with interactive technologies.

The school installed 15 ViewBoard IFP7550 displays, and trained 72 of its teachers and staff on how to use the displays and the included myViewBoard software suite. The displays are currently used in fourth through eighth-grade classrooms during this first stage of implementation.

12 more ViewBoard displays will be installed in first through fourth-grade classrooms during a second stage of implementation. Furthermore, 15 additional ViewBoard displays will be installed in kindergarten through third-grade classrooms in a final implementation scheduled for 2023.












Result




Thanks to the ViewBoard IFP7550 and the myViewBoard software suite, teachers at Colegio Bautista can record their lessons and annotations directly on the screen, and then easily share these lessons with both in-classroom and remote students. Despite the teachers’ initial fear of the new technology, they’ve found the ViewSonic solution to be easy-to-use, and that it makes lessons more enjoyable for their students.




“It is a real head-turner for students, so it immediately engages them and makes learning easier for them,” said Javiera Larraguibel, elementary school teacher at Colegio Bautista. “For teachers, the solution is convenient, it has great image and sound quality, and it has been an excellent tool and platform for familiarizing our staff with new technologies.”

Javiera also explained that the ViewBoard IFP7550 interactive display and myViewBoard software allow her to easily and dynamically apply different learning tactics including auditory, kinesthetic and visual, to her classroom. This ultimately boosts the attention of her students for lessons that are more effective.

Toronto, ON (May 5, 2022) – ViewSonic Canada, a subsidiary of ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solutions, today announced strong first quarter performance driven by demand for its visual solutions across hybrid work and EdTech markets.

ViewSonic Helps Create an Immersive Visual Exhibition at German Museum



Case Study

ViewSonic Helps Create an Immersive Visual Exhibition at German Museum

Company

The A.M. Architekturmuseum was established in 1868 as a teaching collective for students of architecture at the present-day Technical University. When Friedrich von Thiersch erected a new building for the University in Gabelsbergerstrasse in 1912, the architectural collection was accommodated in a large, representative wing of the building and formed the center of the Department of Architecture. The museum advanced its programs in September 2002 by opening its own dedicated presentation rooms in the Pinakothek der Moderne.

Overview

Problem:

  • Simplify the art curation workflow and enhance the agility of the “Taiwan Acts!” exhibition at the Architekturmuseum der TUM in Germany
  • Minimize installation time for the visual-based event

Solution:

  • The ViewSonic® LD135-152 is a 135” All-in-One Direct View LED Display Solution Kit that provided easy delivery, installation, and maintenance.

Result:

  • Quick and convenient installation of the LED Display Solution Kit reduced the setup time to a minimum, significantly improving facilitation of the exhibition tour
  • High-level immersive storytelling thanks to advanced visual display technology
  • Stunning visual quality and performance that captivated and charmed over 30,000 visitors at the Architekturmuseum der TUM

ViewSonic’s All-in-One Direct View LED Display Solution Kit really enhances the exhibition space. The audience gets the spirit of the event and is much closer to the artwork with the huge format of the immersive video display. I think that really makes a big difference.

— Dr. Andres Lepik, Director of A.M. Architekturmuseum der TUM

Problem

”Taiwan Acts!” is a visual spectacle curated at the Architekturmuseum der TUM in Munich, Germany. This international exhibition showcases multiple architectural initiatives created after the devastating earthquake in Taiwan on September 21, 1999. The show aims to raise awareness about the role of architecture through social dialogue.

The curators of the exhibit needed to find a way to provide an easy and intuitive installation for an exhibition that will travel across the globe. They also wanted to bring Taiwanese art and culture to an international audience via advanced visual technology solutions.

Solution

The ViewSonic® LD135-152 is a 135” All-in-One Direct View LED Display Solution Kit that provides easy delivery, installation, and maintenance. The pre- assembled, modular design allows for easy setup within minutes from unboxing, while the movable flight case makes for easy transport. With 360° rotational mobility and a built-in motorized height-adjustable stand, this display effortlessly moves through different exhibit layouts, while elevating the curation experience to the next level.

With a huge, bezel-free 135’’ screen size, Full HD resolution, high brightness, and vivid colors, this solution kit meets and exceeds the high quality required within visual arts, creating an immersive atmosphere and engaging visitors on a deeper level, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The preassembled kit lowers the technical barrier for installers, making setup simple and efficient. With just a single click, the large 135” LED display is ready for instant use and comes with built-in power supplies, control systems and stitching machines.

With a built-in motorized floor stand, curators were able to easily adjust the height of the display up to a maximum range of nearly 24-inches with the simple press of a button. Up to four different sets of height preferences can be saved for convenient recurring use.

Result

During the exhibit, various documentaries were played on the massive 135” Direct View LED Display. The museum saw over 30,000 visitors during the exhibit, each of them wowed by the impactful storytelling and immersive visual experience delivered by the ViewSonic display. Over 100 Taiwanese architectural projects were featured, each emphasizing social dialog and engagement including social, economic, humanitarian and cultural topics.

“We’re very happy to collaborate with ViewSonic to prepare this kind of large exhibition,” said Dr. Chen-Yu Chiu, curator of Taiwan Acts! “We used the 135-inch All-in-One Direct View LED Display Solution Kit to play documentary videos showing Taiwan’s urban landscape. It provided a breathtaking viewing experience and simplified the installation time to 10 minutes.”

Because the LD135-152 kit comes pre-assembled, it was quickly installed and allowed the museum staff to focus on the most important part of the exhibit: creating the best visual setup for its visitors. Experimenting with different height adjustments and angles, the staff customized the display according to the exhibit’s objectives and the unique museum space. The ideal position was secured and stabilized with the press of a button.

The Direct View LED Display was ready to go with a single cable plug-in. This reduced the need for multiple cables and provided a cleaner overall installation. Because the kit’s storage space could keep multiple digital files, it granted peace of mind to those managing such a large art event. No additional components or space was required either, maximizing the possible number of visitors. The intuitive use of the display also benefited the museum on a day-to-day basis, by giving operational ease for staff working different shifts.

“I think it made a huge difference compared to exhibitions we’ve done so far,” said Dr. Andres Lepik, Director of A.M. Architekturmuseum der TUM. “ViewSonic’s All-in-One Direct View LED Display Solution Kit really enhances the exhibition space. The audience gets the spirit of the event and is much closer to the artwork with the huge format of the immersive video display. I think that really makes a big difference.”
