Adaptive Video Walls and Displays Creates Flyable Video Wall for the Cube Lounge at the Rivers Chicago Casino

Flexible Video Walls Can Be Retracted According to Venue’s Specific Need

CHICAGO, SEPTEMBER 19, 2012 — Adaptive Video Walls and Displays, a division of Adaptive Technologies Group and the premier provider of innovative wall-mountable, floor-standing, interlocking and flyable video wall frames for multiple LCD, LED and plasma monitors, teamed up with SVT, a company that provides design, installation, management and service of turnkey technology solutions in a variety of venues, to create three interlocking video walls for the Cube Lounge at the Rivers Chicago Casino. Cube Lounge, a multimedia sports lounge by day and state-of-the-art nightclub/live-performance space by night, can raise and lower the Adaptive video frames from the ceiling, instantly transforming the space as needed.

When the lounge is being utilized as a sports venue, a two-sided 2X1 video wall, consisting of four 55-inch NEC flat-screen LCD displays, is positioned over the bar area. In the center of the lounge is a two-sided 6X1 video wall that also has 55-inch NEC LCD displays. During live performances, the front stage area houses a complete 4×4 video wall, which consists of sixteen 46-inch NEC ultra-thin bezel LCD displays. This video wall can be configured to exhibit one large image across all the displays or up to sixteen different images. When the venue is in nightclub mode, the entire video wall can then be lifted out of sight.

Adaptive’s precision-machined connecting bars and compression locks link multiple LCD frames together, horizontally and vertically, in both landscape and portrait orientations. Precisely dimensioned mounting frames and LCD monitors are assembled in tiers, and then the completed and locked assembly is flown utilizing a load-rated rigging beam and suspension components. Rigging beams secure to the top and bottom of the video wall for tilting displays, and cam-style compression locks provide seamless alignment between LCDs. Powder-coated alloy steel-welded frames and precision-machined connecting bars provide rugged overhead lifting for nearly any application.

“We are thrilled that we were able to solve the Cube Lounge’s multi-purpose needs through the use of our flying interlocking video walls,” says Paul Allen, president, Adaptive Technologies Group. “Our video walls help to easily transform this venue from a sports bar to a night club setting, with just a click of a button.”

In addition to the frames designed for use in this project, Adaptive Video Walls and Displays provides frames for various other LCD and plasma models that are employed in many permanent and rental and staging applications around the world, including narrow bezel models produced by NEC, Sharp, Orion, Samsung and ViewSonic.

Christie Moves Champaign-Urbana Transportation Control Room Forward with New High Resolution 55 Inch Flat Panels

For the more than ten million passengers who rely on transit in Champaign, Illinois, and the surrounding areas, the new Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District (CUMTD) control room provides peace of mind as dispatchers monitor and respond more quickly to activities en route with a large Christie visual display wall.

As part of its Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), the CUMTD’s newly-built, larger headquarters includes a control room equipped with 10 state-of-the-art Christie FHD551-X LCD full-HD flat panels –ideal for control room solutions requiring larger, brighter video walls for a clearer view of information.

“The new Christie video wall is at the center of information sharing. It’s on 20 hours a day, seven days a week to monitor bus activities in the city,” noted Karl Gnadt, director of market development, CUMTD. “Christie’s flat panels are reliable and provide excellent image quality.”

Zdi, Inc, the systems integration company headquartered in Normal, Illinois, who won the contract commissioned by the CUMTD, partnered with AECOM to design the new control room, and selected Christie’s solutions and visual display products. “It’s the quality of the products, the ease of installation and the service that I knew I would get from Christie that made the decision easy. They were all spot on, and we will definitely use Christie products again,” said Jay McArdle, lead engineer with Zdi, Inc.

“The CUMTD required a solution that was up to date and could fit into a challenging space configuration, while providing the pixel density needed to display feeds from 300 new video cameras situated in bus stops, the transfer terminal as well as in maintenance and administration facilities,” said John Stark, Christie’s senior director of Collaborative Visual Solutions. “Christie has a broad range display solutions that lets you monitor, control and interact with all your visual assets – from any source – in real time.”

The Christie FHD551-X is a tiled LCD solution for a wide range of video wall applications, including control rooms, corporate and retail displays, and digital-out-of-home advertising.

This full-HD resolution, narrow bezel, flat-panel display is energy efficient with LED backlighting, and controlled brightness levels that are well suited for indoor environments.

According to Gnadt, “The dispatchers love the new control center, love the screens and their ability to enlarge images and see video feeds more quickly, which increases their response time for all activities.”
