Planar Systems and BrightSign Team to Create World's Tallest Planar Mosaic Video Wall
Four-story Architectural Video Wall Greets Guests at High-end Miami Hotel
Planar Systems and BrightSign, LLC®, the global market leader in digital signage media players, today announced their recent collaboration to create the world’s tallest Planar® Mosaic™ Architectural Video Wall. The installation was unveiled in early November at a high-end Miami-area hotel as part of its grand opening festivities. This new hotel is situated in Surfside, Florida, nestled between Miami Beach and Bal Harbour.
To create stunning visual impact for guests as they arrive, Florida-based CMA was commissioned to install a towering four-story video wall in the reception area. CMA surveyed vendors across the entire digital signage spectrum and ultimately decided to feature BrightSign digital signage media players and Planar Systems displays.
“With a high-profile installation like this, it’s important that the deployment be artistically breathtaking with perfect synchronization and 24/7 reliability – that’s why we chose BrightSign and Planar,” said Cesar Cifuentes, founder and president of CMA. “The beautiful Planar Mosaic displays work seamlessly with BrightSign’s players to create a finished product that perfectly complements the look of the hotel.”
Adding to the allure, the hotel’s glass walls make the video wall visible from the street as well as the lobby. This impressive video wall brings landmark status to the hotel, helping it stand out among its peers in this stylish stretch of Florida coastline.
The Planar Mosaic architectural video wall solution allows the ultra-thin LCD display tiles to be mounted in any position relative to one another. This makes possible the towering video wall in which the twenty 55” displays are placed at a 90-degree angle to one another, creating a beautiful herringbone pattern. The displays’ unencumbered positioning flexibility, off-board power supplies and sophisticated imaging software enabled CMA to design and install the video wall in such a way that simply would not have been possible using displays from any other manufacturer.
“Our vision for architectural video walls is well demonstrated in this impressive hospitality installation,” said Jennifer Davis, vice president of marketing at Planar Systems. “By consulting with the client in the first stages of the design process, CMA’s installation has become a focal point visible from the street, and is destined to be an iconic, instantly-recognizable fixture in the model Miami architectural landscape.”
Planar Mosaic video walls coupled with BrightSign’s media players give designers endless possibilities for creative expression. The installation is a stunning example of what is achievable when a cutting-edge integrator teams with a digital signage market leader.
