The Space Needle is a landmark of the Pacific Northwest and an icon of Seattle. It was built for the 1962 World’s Fair, which drew over 10 million visitors. Since then over 1 million guests annually have ridden its elevators up 520 feet to take in vistas of the city, Puget Sound, the Cascade Range and Olympic Mountains. In 2014, the Space Needle moved ahead on a plan to create a 21st century experience for Space Needle visitors, to showcase the heritage and evolution of the iconic spire, and to enhance visitors’ connection to it.
A key step in this plan was to build on the use of digital technology throughout the needle by implementing a digital video wall on the observation deck that would attract more visitors, immerse them in the needle’s history and give them a means to become part of its future. To this end, the team, along with Planar and partners in various technology disciplines, designed, installed and began creating a content strategy for a 135 square foot video wall, known as SkyPad™, comprised of 15 Clarity™ Matrix LCD Video Wall displays in a three-high by five-wide (3x5) configuration.
