At the Oracle Open World conference in October, Vexata used some CHAUVET Professional F3 LED panels for its social media-connected video wall.
“Basically, we wanted to have a video wall that didn’t look like a video wall,” said Austin Jansen of Digital Dynamite Productions, which provided the audio and video for the booth. “Our challenge was to find an LED panel that had a minimal footprint and one that hid the rigging and rear of the display. The LED video display had to look as though it was part of a large graphic, so visitors could not tell it was really an LED wall.”
Jansen mounted 68 F3 LED tiles on plywood panels for the setup.
“The panels were positioned on six separate surfaces that we custom built out of birch plywood and covered with vinyl graphics to hide the rear of the display,” he explained. “The F3 panels were perfect for this job, because they’re serviceable from the front. This allowed us to mount the panel cabinet frame directly to a substrate and wire the LED wall from the front. By doing this, we were able to have minimal clearance behind the LED wall, which created the feeling of the panels being part of the overall graphical display."
Vexata used the video walls to display branding images and marketing messages geared toward the conference. The wall was also used for a social media posting game that had a countdown timer. The setup included no visible wires, 3.9 mm pixel pitch, and realistic colors rendered by its RGB SMD LEDs.
“Our client was really thrilled with the reaction to the video wall,” said Jansen. “At the end of the day, pleasing our client is the most important part of what we do. On a personal level, it was really nice to see a cool concept like this video wall come to life and work so well.”
