L.A. LIVE LED Video Displays

Sansi North America (SNA) manufactured 10 LED video displays at L.A. LIVE, the sports and entertainment district outside the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The high-resolution video displays, installed by YESCO, will be an integral part of the ambiance in the district, which is the home to some of the area's most high-profile events at the Staples Center, Microsoft Theater, the courtyard and other club and restaurant venues.

The project features the main courtyard screen, a long ribbon display, six courtyard tower displays, a tight-radius "prow" screen, and a Staples Center wall-mounted display.

Main Courtyard LED Display

Of the 10 state-of-the-art LED screens installed in and around the courtyard by SNA, the largest is about 20' high x 38' wide. This display, facing the courtyard and the Staples Center, is single-sided and mounted below the sponsored "Microsoft Square" channel letters. The exterior display, like all video displays throughout the project, consists of a tight 8 mm pixel pitch and includes 750 pixels high and 1,440 pixels wide for a total of 1,080,000 pixels,

Microsoft Theater LED Ribbon 

Along the courtyard-facing outer wall of the Microsoft Theater is SNA's LED ribbon display. The 8 mm ribbon, which is 5'6" high and almost 121' long, curves around the northwest corner of the Microsoft Theater and features almost 1 million pixels (210 x 4,600). The curved design consists of a radius of just under 45 feet.

Microsoft Theater LED "Prow" Display

At the top of the Microsoft Theater is an LED screen featuring a very tight radius and wrapping around the prow-like structure of the entertainment venue. The screen, which also features exterior 8 mm pixel pitch LED technology, curves around the corner at a radius of 6'7", giving the district a unique look and offering a 180-degree viewing experience. The prow display is about 13'6" high and 36' long  (510 x 1,360 pixels).

Microsoft Square Tower Displays

The six tower displays in the courtyard, also known as Microsoft Square, are identical and allow the venue's display content to be viewed from a wide variety of positions and angles throughout the district. Each tower display is  about 13' high by 23' wide and curves around its tower structure at a radius of just under 14 feet. Each curved LED screen has 480 x 880 pixels (422,400). 

Staples Center LED Screen

Outside the Staples Center, near the intersection of Chick Hearn and S Figueroa, is the project's final LED display. The wall-mounted screen is approximately 16' high by 20' wide and consists of 600 x 760 pixels (456,000). The Staples Center video display also features an 8 mm pixel pitch and connects the visual display elements of the courtyard to the arena.

SMD Packaging Technology

All LED S|Video™ displays manufactured by SNA at L.A. LIVE employ outdoor surface-mount device (SMD) technology, where the LEDs in each pixel are packaged together, allowing for crisp, clear imagery and a widened viewing experience.
