International Monetary Fund (IMF)
New Video Walls at International Monetary Fund Buildings
SNA Displays completed a multi-phase project to manufacture and install a series of interior LED displays inside International Monetary Fund (IMF) offices at 1900 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW and 700 19th Street, NW in downtown Washington, D.C.
With digital solutions becoming a more integral part of architecture and workspace modernization, choosing a state-of-the-art video wall allows conference hosts to engage their audiences with dynamic, eye-catching digital experiences.
As part of this growing trend, SNA Displays manufactured and supplied a BOLD™ interior display product for a conference hall inside the government building at 1900 Pennsylvania Avenue. The LED video wall uses a floor stand subframe that is integrated flush against the wood-panel wall. This frame was custom-built and installed by RP Visual Solutions.
The BOLD™ LED display employs a pixel pitch of 2.5 mm and is 9'7" high by 18'4" wide (1,170 pixels x 2,240 pixels) for a surface area of 176 square feet. At that resolution, this means that the display has 2.6 million total pixels.
SNA Displays partnered with Diversified, a commercial integrator, display installer, and channel partner. The wood finish on this display provides a stylistic contrast to the sleek steel frame found in another downtown Washington, D.C., collaboration between SNA Displays and Diversified.
SNA Displays collaborated with AVI-SPL to manufacture and install a BOLD™ LED display for the IMF Atrium at 700 19th Street. The roughly t-shaped display features artistic content and is mounted on one end of the atrium at floor level, letting viewers experience it up close and personal or from one of the many office windows facing into the interior courtyard. The atrium itself is a wide floor space with a glass ceiling, allowing for plenty of natural light.
The top of the display extends above the rectangular steel frame to which it is mounted flush. The frame is finished with perforated metal cladding.
The direct-view LED has a 2.5 mm pixel pitch and is composed of three offset panels. The left panel is 9'7" tall by 34'1" wide (1,170 x 4,160). The center and right panels are 31' by 24'11" (3,780 x 2,040) and 9'7" by 9'2" (1,170 x 1,120), respectively. This gives the display 17.7 million total pixels over 1,189 square feet of LED canvas.
Working again with integrator AVI-SPL, SNA Displays completed a wall-mounted digital display from its BRILLIANT™ line of interior LED products. The display has a pixel pitch of 1.25 mm and was installed flush into the tiled wall of a circular-shaped board room in the same building as the Atrium. To make the display flush, the display had to be set about 6 inches deep into the wall using a subframe made by RP Visual Solutions.
The display is 8'10" tall by 15'9" wide (2,160 x 3,840) for a total of 139.5 square feet and it has 8.3 million pixels.
