AV Integrator Exceeds Customer Requirements for Massive Atrium Space with ViewSonic 216-inch Direct View LED Display
Meeting spaces are the bread and butter of commercial AV integrators. Enclosed conference rooms and boardrooms typically call for standard setups. Open huddle spaces and large multipurpose areas become more complex. This commercial AV integrator, faced with a unique space to fill, had an exceptionally trouble-free experience and a highly satisfied customer working with ViewSonic to install a 216-inch Direct View LED display.
One of its largest clients, a worldwide name in banking software solutions, sought to install a video wall in their new multipurpose space. A huge open area that included a stairway to the second floor – and an impressive plant wall – the company’s “Staritorim” would be used for company-wide meetings, welcoming guests, and running videos to showcase new products and other company accomplishments.
The video equipment would need to fill as much of the expansive wall as possible, within budget constraints, and be able to perform well with multiple types of content and lighting conditions. The company chose Direct View LED technology over a traditional tiled-screen LCD video wall for its ability to provide a seamless image.
After assessing the competitive field, the final contenders came down to ViewSonic and Planar. The company chose the ViewSonic® 216-inch Direct View LED display based on price, size, and integrated features. In addition to a lower cost, ViewSonic offered an all-in-one solution with integrated processing power, which allowed for an easier, less-complicated installation. This would reduce time and expense related to installation, as well as for ongoing maintenance and daily use.
The bundled ViewSonic EMBEDDED Signage Platform (VESP) eliminated the need for external devices to communicate with the server or to play digital media. The customer appreciated that it was a more compact, easier-to-use solution that would reduce costs.
No additional components were needed: the LED tiles, AV hardware and software, power supplies, and cables were included. The bundled ViewSonic EMBEDDED Signage Platform (VESP) eliminated the need for external devices to communicate with the server or to play digital media. The customer appreciated that it was a more compact, easier-to-use solution that would reduce costs.
The AV integrator in charge of the project appreciated working with ViewSonic at every step of the way, reporting that it was one of the best experiences he’d had with an equipment manufacturer. He noted that the ViewSonic team even found a mistake on the design drawings that would have impacted the fit of the display. Further, the ViewSonic all-in-one Direct View LED solution included the services of a certified technician to assist with installation.
After several months of use, the banking software customer has also been beyond pleased, reporting that the solution simply does what they need it to do, with ease and without fail, launching quickly and running continually every day. The huge display is a vibrant and exciting presence in their corporate atrium. Personnel from various departments have successfully used it for presentations, welcome messages, and brand building.
To facilitate connectivity with remote workers, the company added a video conferencing system. When it was used for the first all-hands meeting, the Direct View LED display amazed the fully-assembled workforce with its looks and performance, even in the brilliance of a bright sunny morning in a space without blinds.
