Salesforce: 50 Fremont
SNA DISPLAYS INSTALLS LONGEST 4 MM LED WALL IN U.S.
Sansi North America (SNA) Displays completed installation of a 106-foot-long, 4 mm LED video display in the Salesforce lobby at 50 Fremont Street in San Francisco.
It is the longest continuous 4 mm LED screen in the United States.
Despite the tensions that inevitably come with retrofits and new building construction, we were put at ease by SNA's experience, know-how and ultimately results with regard to the LED technology they supplied.
OVER 7 MILLION PIXELS
The display features a tight 4 mm pixel pitch, meaning the center of each pixel is only .16 inches from the center of an adjacent pixel. The video wall is approximately 12'7" high by 106'5" wide with a resolution of 960 x 8,112 pixels, excluding the elevator cutouts. Accounting for the elevator cutouts, the display consists of more than six million pixels, comparable to many LED spectaculars like those found in Times Square.
SURFACE-MOUNT DEVICE (SMD) TECHNOLOGY
The indoor BOLD™ LED display employs high-end, surface-mount device (SMD) technology, where each pixel's LEDs are packaged together, allowing for crisp, clear imagery and a widened viewing experience.
PART OF THE LOBBY ARCHITECTURE
The project's design architect was Gensler. In addition to the retrofit nature of the project, one of the critical elements of the design was properly positioning the screen technology around the elevator entrances. This allows the video wall to become an important part of the lobby architecture without being intrusive.
Chase Mattison, Program Director of Salesforce Global Real Estate Operations, had this to say about the project: "From award to factory acceptance testing to delivery to install, SNA's project management team always kept us informed... After our experience, we would certainly recommend SNA for any company's LED media needs. Despite the tensions that inevitably come with retrofits and new building construction, we were put at ease by SNA's experience, know-how and ultimately results with regard to the LED technology they supplied."
