Clarity Matrix Video Wall at National Geographic Museum

An exhibit at the National Geographic Museum in Washington D.C. pays unique tribute to the 125 years of work of the society’s explorers, photographers and scientists while also looking forward to the future of the society. The exhibit presents a larger-than-life picture of the many facets of our world on a Clarity® Matrix LCD Video Wall System, from Planar, whose physical layout provides a novel and engaging platform that maximizes the impact of the National Geographic Society’s renowned visual content. The video wall consists of a 12-panel (4x3) array of Clarity® Matrix MX46HD LCD video wall displays. It was installed by Sterling, Virginia-based Avitecture, which designs, installs and supports integrated audio-visual systems with an emphasis on dynamic architectural displays.

The video wall is unusual in that its three horizontal rows are offset from each other—a unique layout that creates an engaging experience. The creative team at National Geographic museum  envisioned the offset layout as a way to present nature in a more organic format. Rather than depicting the natural world in a rectilinear box, our layout allows for compelling compositions that highlight and accentuate the lyrical beauty of each scene. To read more visit
