Jan. 11, 2023 - For this installation, Peerless-AV® was tasked with designing and manufacturing a custom-fabricated dvLED video wall to serve as a dynamic digital backdrop for the museum's archival footage.
The Jackie Robinson Museum's goal for this installation was to create a digital video wall that could deliver the historical media for the Game Day exhibit. Partners Ideum and Gensler worked closely with Peerless-AV to bring the museum's vision to life by joining three displays and seamless angles to wrap around the Ebbets Field model showcased at the museum.
Peerless-AV manufactured the custom-engineered direct view LED (dvLED) mounting solution for Unilumin displays that would provide the stability required for this installation, and in a short timeframe. Ideum collaborated closely with Peerless-AV to make the three dvLED panels work successfully. Peerless-AV designed and manufactured a SEAMLESS Bespoke dvLED Video Wall Mounting System to fit within the three-faceted walls; each panel joining at the center, then fanning out at a 152° angle at the sides.
The challenging aspect of this installation was achieving a perfect corner in alignment with the wall structure. The spacing of the video wall was crucial, so Peerless-AV designed custom wall adaptors to fill the void. The adapters provided the accuracy and micro-adjustment needed to overcome the installation irregularities and achieve the desired result with precision pixel alignment.
Peerless-AV designed the mounting system to deflect no more than L/360, meaning the mount was extremely rigid with the maximum total it can flex being 1/8″ over a 10′ span. For added assurance, the design was reviewed, tested, and authorized by a professional engineer leaving the team feeling confident with the solution. The finished video wall measures 7ft H x 30ft W, with 152-degree concave facets, to create a captivating visual experience for visitors of the museum and those walking by the museum's glass facade.
Thanks to the dedicated efforts of all parties involved, this installation was a rousing success. Only having three days on-site to install and assist in any way possible, the team at Peerless-AV was able to work within the tight timeframe to keep the entire installation on schedule.
Through the partnership with Ideum and Peerless-AV, the Jackie Robinson Museum provides attendees with a look into the life and history of Jackie Robinson, and offers a space for people to come together to appreciate each other's humanity and diverse experiences.
