The mission of the Ronald Reagan Institute in Washington DC is to preserve the legacy of President Ronald Reagan and proactively promote his ideals, vision and leadership example through youth education and academic alliances, scholarly work and substantive, issue-driven forums. The Reagan Institute recognizes the importance of technology for achieving that mission and LED display technology played a prominent role in the build out of a new facility.
The center attraction of the new Reagan Institute is a towering 14-foot-wide, 19-foot-high Planar® TVF Series LED video wall with a 1.8mm pixel pitch (TVF1.8) that is integrated in the ground floor lobby. Visible from the street, the video wall offers visitors the opportunity to learn more about President Reagan through enhanced interaction. Using a hand-held interactive touch panel linked to the video wall, people can explore a range of content about the 40th president including imagery, feature videos and footage of his time in office.
