Museums and Historic Sites
Gagosian LED Cube
The contemporary art gallery Gagosian hosted a digital art exhibition at its West 24th Street location in New York titled Denominator by Swiss visual artist Urs Fischer. The digital art sculpture included a five-sided LED cube built from SNA Displays’ BOLD™ Interior LED display technology. The cube’s 12-foot screens employed 2.5-milimeter pixel spacing and were mounted to a free-standing steel frame such that the exhibit “floated” one inch above the gallery floor.
The structure was custom-designed and precisely installed to minimize seams. In total, the art installation processed 10.4 million pixels.
Corporate and Workplace
Hewlett Packard Enterprise
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) gave its global headquarters a digital signage makeover complete with immersive, inspirational, and interactive experiences. SNA Displays built indoor and outdoor display technology for the computer technology giant’s Houston campus, and technology integration company i.e.Smart Systems oversaw the project.
Highlights include a 28-foot-tall, vertically oriented video wall in the lobby, an immersive experience known as the Fishbowl that includes a floor display, a 50-foot-long immersive theater video wall that bends around viewers, a 16:9-ratio video screen in an executive briefing center known as the PlayGround, and a massive 40ft x 90ft exterior display overlooking the campus.
The Moxy DTLA
SNA Displays manufactured a massive digital out-of-home video display, installed in the heart of downtown Los Angeles at the intersection of S Figueroa St. and W Pico Blvd. One of the largest continuous exterior LED video walls in the United States, the Moxy and AC Hotel Downtown Los Angeles, “The Moxy,” is located across from the LA Convention Center, L.A. LIVE, and Crypto.com Arena.
The LED mega-spectacular is a 15,000-square-foot video wall built from SNA Displays’ EMPIRE™ Exterior line of LED display technology and boasts a resolution of 1,890 x 11,480 pixels. The roughly 50-foot-tall screen extends about the length of a football field before it wraps the corner of a multilevel parking structure. The design provides extended viewing and long read times for nearby pedestrian and auto traffic.
The digital display employs 8 mm pixel pitch technology, giving the video screen almost 22 million pixels.
Sports and Entertainment
Tech Port Center + Arena
Tech Port Center + Arena is a new, state-of-the art technology and entertainment venue in San Antonio. Owner-representative Anthony James Partners selected SNA Displays to provide an extensive indoor and outdoor LED video signage network for the multipurpose center.
The main hub of the 180,000-square-foot facility is a reconfigurable 3,100-seat arena and gaming hall that hosts concerts, conferences, esports tournaments, robotics competitions, and other live-entertainment events. The arena features a trio of truss-mounted LED screens from SNA Displays’ BOLD™ Interior line of video display technology, all with a narrow pixel pitch of 3.9 mm.
Other key digital signage throughout the new venue includes several tight-pitch outdoor LED displays. With 2.9 mm pixel spacing, a pair of oversized, double-sided LED kiosks are the tightest-pitch EMPIRE™ Exterior LED displays on the market, and a box-office LED display features a 3.9 mm pitch. Additionally, there are several 10 mm exterior displays, including an 11’10” x 20′ screen that wraps around the building’s east corner as well as LED ribbon displays along the façade.
