George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum

Everything is Bigger in Texas, Right Down to their LED Video Wall Installations

The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, located on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, is an impressive building that serves as a resource for the study of the life and career of George W. Bush, while also promoting a better understanding of the Presidency, American history, and important issues of public policy. The building is highlighted by a large atrium in the center of the facility, called Freedom Hall, in which Diversified was selected by Barco to install one of the largest video walls in the country.

The Barco video display, consisting of 2560 individual, wall-mounted display tiles (16 tiles high by 40 tiles wide), is located just below the windows of the atrium, covering all four sides of the space. Each side measures 21-feet high by 52-feet wide, resulting in an impressive 360-degree image.

Diversified’s Digital Media Group was involved in the project to provide installation, integration and documentation of the display. To make the process of installation challenging, the wall is located 40 feet above the floor, which required the entire installation to be done utilizing man lifts at full extension.

Although a very challenging project four our team, the result was well worth the effort. The 360-degree image is made even more impressive through the Barco C5 5mm pitch tile elements. The image must be seen to believed, as the photographs here can only give you a small sense of the true viewing experience.
