Atlanta-based NanoLumens, makers of custom-built indoor and outdoor LED displays for a variety of markets, announces the installation of a 43′ x 5′ curved LED display at the Chattanooga Convention Center.
The Nixel Series curved display is installed at the north entrance to the facility. According to Mike Shuford, executive director of the center, he encountered NanoLumens displays in other locations and realized that an eye-catching digital display can make a huge difference not only for attendees to events but also to the event manager, who can use it as a digital canvas for a wide range of content.
He also realized the display would complement the city’s reputation for being on the cutting edge technologically. The convention center, for example, offers free Wi-Fi to all its visitors.
“The U.S. convention center industry is highly competitive,” Shuford says, “with centers across the country constantly working to promote themselves as the best location and as having the best infrastructure for all types of events. With the installation of this unique, vibrant curved NanoLumens display, Chattanooga has stepped up to the plate to help organizations of all sizes hit it out of the park at their next conference or event.”
The 5mm pixel pitch display is impossible to miss for convention center visitors, residing above a main rotunda visible from all angles. Because of NanoLumens’ custom display building process and lightweight design, it did not require any new support infrastructure or construction, and it was built specifically to fit the exact curve of the existing wall.
The company’s customer service and warranty assurances also played a role in the decision, he says.
Content for the extra-wide display is delivered via a BrightSign player which allows the operators to develop their own visualizations and even split the display into multiple ‘windows.’
