Sherlock School in Cicero, Illinois, is an elementary school focused on using state-of-the-art technology and design to enhance the learning environment. For the newly built facility, Cicero District 99 wanted to create an environment that would motivate and stimulate the students by introducing them to technology in ways they might not have encountered before.
The district sought to implement technology solutions throughout the facility to create flexible learning environments for the students – this would include unique, eye-catching video displays in the main entrance and fourth floor interactive space. The plan required assistance from a skilled team and the use of high-tech solutions that would keep students invested in learning. With construction underway at the school, the timeframe was tight to have the project completed before school started.
What’s more, the district wanted to implement creative display designs utilizing curved screens, which would require intricate installation.
Cicero District 99 selected Snap Install, Inc. as the integrator for the project. Snap Install selected LG Open Frame OLED commercial displays, because the flexible displays can be curved to create state-of-the-art installations that provide immersive experiences. For mounting solutions, longstanding LG partner Peerless-AV® was the natural choice.
And so the collaborative team of Snap Install, LG Business Solutions and Peerless-AV designed a customized approach for the school.
This was a unique project in that the LG Open Frame OLED displays would be custom-curved for the ceiling and wall designs right there on site. Peerless-AV was able to quickly design, test, manufacture, and install video wall mounting solutions that support the displays, and Snap Install finished the job within the aggressive deadline, also including two large LG LCD video walls.
It was stellar teamwork and the results are outstanding in the brand-new school, with plenty of exciting digital goodness to engage the kids every day. The main lobby provides an unforgettable experience with 34, 55-inch curved LG Open Frame OLED displays (55EF5E-L) – 24 on the ceiling and 10 in two columns on the wall, supported by Peerless-AV’s dedicated mounting solutions. The fourth floor features two video walls, each composed of eight 55-inch LG Narrow Bezel displays (55VH7E-A) and eight Peerless-AV SmartMount® Supreme Full Service Video Wall Mounts with Quick Release (DS-VW775-QR).
Congratulations and a big THANK YOU to Snap Install and Peerless-AV.
