The video wall is made of 12 Clarity Matrix LCD video displays that form a six-wide by two-high wall above the first floor cardio area of the Student Recreation and Wellness Center.
According to a statement by Planar, the wall delivers 800-nit brightness, a 3,500:1 contrast ratio, 1920x 1080 resolution and a 178-degree viewing angle. The individual displays can also display different television feeds simultaneously, or the same feed.
The also wall features an ultra-narrow tiled bezel width of 3.7 mm, which creates an almost seamless image.
• The wall was installed using the Planar EasyAxis Mounting system, which mounted and aligned each of the 12 LCD displays.
• The wall’s power supplies and controllers are located in a remote back room, which saved the university money on power and labor costs during the installation.
• If UNLV decides to expand the video wall, it can insert new rows or columns without installing additional infrastructure.
Erin Farrar, UNLV’s Director of Campus Recreation Services, says the video wall helps keep exercising students entertained, and demonstrates the university’s dedication to “advanced technology.”
“To even those most dedicated to getting fit, a treadmill session can get boring quickly,” said Farrar, in a previous statement. “So having the ability to watch a game or even a cooking show, especially on a big screen, makes the time fly by and keeps hundreds of students motivated to work out when they otherwise might not be. We love these displays as much the students do, because they make a statement about our commitment to advanced technology and bringing content and information to viewers on the very latest digital media platforms.”
