Video Wall Assembly

The purpose

Traditionally being a university that excels in the education of creative subjects, Bath Spa University appointed TEN Audio Visual to install a 7.35m high and 3.75m wide video wall in their foyer. In addition to being a focal point of their reception, Bath Spa University wanted to give artists the opportunity to enter their residency competition in which they submit their design for the wall.

The DEXON solution

DEXON Systems’ DXN video wall controller was selected for its picture-perfect display of higher resolution synchronized content.  It is a flagship display area in the main reception space for the university where performances and artwork can be displayed. A significant requirement was to have synchronized outputs allowing for very high resolution content to be displayed seamlessly across the video wall. This was also possible by using Samsung narrow bezel video wall displays.

The DEXON DXN video wall controller manages the large area of 3 monitors horizontal and 10 monitors vertical directions. Altogether 30 monitors delivering 5760 x 10800 total resolution for the audience.
