College Esports Lounge
Collegiate Esports Lounge
LEXINGTON, KY—Baker Audio Visual and SNA Displays teamed up to install a narrow pixel pitch LED video screen at a collegiate esports lounge in Kentucky. Despite its relatively small size – approximately 60 square feet – the digital display features an extremely tight 1.56 mm pixel pitch and is comprised of more than 2.3 million total pixels.
Partnering with SNA Displays allowed us to have open discussions about the needs and desires of the customer.
“We needed to ensure we were bringing a product that not only fit the day-one needs, but also was expandable for the future needs of the space, said Jacob Dylan, project executive at Baker Audio Visual. “Partnering with SNA Displays allowed us to have open discussions about the needs and desires of the customer in a very organic fashion with the manufacturer themselves. This ability to have such a collaborative open dialogue ultimately rendered a very successful project delivery for our customer.”
The high-resolution digital display technology is built from SNA Displays’ BRILLIANT™ Interior line of LED products and is wall-mounted within the center of the esports lounge.
The esports center is part of a 300,000 square-foot multi-use facility managed by Signet Real Estate Group and serves to bridge the university with the Lexington community. The facility includes an innovation lab, retail space, a dining hall, and a parking garage in addition to the esports gaming lounge and theater.
