DALLAS, TX––AVIXA, the Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Association, announced the 2021 AV Experience Awards finalists, recognizing Grandscape in the category of Best In-Person Experience. The award entry was submitted by international AV integrator Electrosonic, which was named by AVIXA as a finalist in three categories.
The global AV Experience Award program recognizes the innovative integration of content, space, and AV technology to create or enhance an experience. The award for Best In-Person Experience recognizes when AV technology strategically motivates potential attendees to “get out into the real world to experience something they can’t see, do, or feel anywhere else.”
The Barnycz Group was the experiential designer for the entire Grandscape project, which is built on a 400+ acre site in North Dallas and is one of the largest mixed-use real estate developments in the United States.
The design goal behind Grandscape was to set a new benchmark for in-person experience, using themed technology to attract, entertain, and retain customers.
SNA Displays manufactured much of the LED display technology in use at Grandscape, most notably the Stylon™ display built into the reflecting pool by the main entrance. This 43-foot-tall, double-ellipsoid digital screen welcomes visitors with various creative content including digital art, Grandscape imagery, and third-party advertising. Built with SNA Displays’ EMPIRE™ Exterior line of outdoor LED technology, the double-sided 6.67 mm pixel pitch screen has more than 3,000 square feet of digital canvas and 6.7 million total pixels.
Other key digital signage features on the Grandscape campus are the wraparound marquee above the Galaxy Theater and two rooftop displays that overlook the reflecting pond and the site’s main lawn.
