HONOLULU—A new, high-end LED video wall from Sansi North America (SNA) Displays is the visual centerpiece of the newly renovated Bank of Hawaii main branch location in downtown Honolulu.
The digital wall, a cutting-edge BOLD interior LED display with more than 2.4 million pixels, was designed into the sleek new lobby space as part of the bank’s “Branch of Tomorrow,” 21-century banking experience makeover.
Other renovations to the bank’s main branch included a sprawling, open floor plan, private transaction rooms, floor-to-ceiling modern finishes, contemporary furnishings, upgraded easy-deposit ATMs and tablets for more personal interactions and great convenience.
The vibrant lobby video wall spans the length of the bank’s entrance-facing wall, greeting customers with striking visuals. The display’s content rotates through bold, colorful imagery drawn from themes of the Hawaiian voyaging canoe. The screen also serves as a state-of-the-art canvas for showcasing bank promotions and other marketing campaigns.
Measuring 33 feet long and seven feet high, the modern screen features a 3 mm pixel pitch, meaning the center of each pixel is just 3 millimeters (.19 inches) from the center of an adjacent pixel. With almost two and a half million pixels (720 high x 3,360 wide), the LED video wall is capable of displaying high-resolution video and images.
SNA Displays partnered with Ford AV, one of the leading commercial AV integrators in the U.S., to install and integrate 14 large subframe assemblies into one beautiful LED canvas.

Project management teams from both SNA Displays and Ford AV coordinated on the Bank of Hawaii project onsite. The project crews installed the lobby display in only two and a half days.
“The crew from Ford AV was nothing short of impressive,” said Jamin Johnson, field service manager for SNA Displays. “Their overall approach, mobilization and efficiency throughout every step of the installation helped make this project a success.”
Rick Bortles, vice president of SNA Displays’ Channel Program, said partners like Ford AV are driving unprecedented growth in various markets for the company.
“We are experiencing accelerated growth, and a big part of that growth is being fueled by our Preferred Channel Partners like Ford AV,” he said. “This was very exciting project for us, allowing us to extend our products and services to a new market in Hawaii.”
SNA Displays’ attention to detail, quality control and teamwork was appreciated by the Ford AV crew.
“We were excited to partner with SNA on this project and look forward to future projects,” said David Allen, Ford AV, EE, VP. “SNA has a great product and support to go along with it.”
