The University of California, Riverside (UCR) installed a new LCD display in its recently upgraded Student Recreation Center.
The display is 27 feet by 15 feet, and is made of 49, 55-inch displays.
According to a statement by Gefen, UCR’s display shows “content form a distant source at a moment’s notice.” This includes national and school-related events, campus information and signage, and up to 16 CATV channels. The display can pull this content from cable TV, DVDs and camera feeds, and can be controlled remotely by tablets and smartphones.
“UCR wanted an LCD videowall that encourages student participation while they utilize the Student Recreation Center’s all-new fitness room, rock climbing wall, swimming pool and basketball court,” said James Gulke, executive designer and project manager of High-Tech Electric. “I knew that fiber-based signal extenders were an absolute necessity for the videowall to effectively stream content from multiple sources.”
