At the non-profit Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville, Georgia, things are looking a little brighter these days – literally. Working with local integration firm Owen Security Solutions, the museum invested in a wide range of vibrant webOS™-based digital displays from LG Business Solutions USA and a dedicated video wall mounting system designed and manufactured by Peerless-AV®. The eye-catching digital signage installation includes a 15-foot-wide by 8.5-foot-tall, 2.5mm pixel pitch LED Signage video wall featured at the very center of the museum, which they use to present a variety of content.
The installation location proved to be challenging, because the selected wall area for the large LED Signage was slanted at an obtuse angle. Despite this hurdle, Peerless-AV’s SEAMLESS custom flat video wall mount was successfully installed in just a day.
LG commercial displays also provide digital signage at the reception desk and cafe, with four digital displays in each location. At reception, two displays mirror the content from the LED Signage video wall, while the remaining two share membership info and admission prices, respectively. In the café are three LG digital menu boards and one screen that mirrors the LED Signage video wall content. These displays were installed with LCD mounting solutions from Peerless. The museum’s largest banquet room features two 110-inch LG video walls, each composed of four LG 55-inch narrow-bezel displays and Peerless-AV SmartMount® video wall mounts.
With the old AV infrastructure using consumer-grade TVs, updating a single display required the museum’s A/V manager to load new content onto a USB thumb drive, then physically go to the display and update just that one unit. Using the webOS platform, he can now instantly update content on any LG display from his office PC, or remotely, saving time and frustration on a daily basis.
According to museum officials, the tech makeover has enabled greater flexibility to manage and schedule content while creating an environment that’s more attractive to its school-age audience whose educational experiences and upbringings have included frequent use of digital technologies. From the stunning LED Signage video wall, which has become a center of attention, to fun animations on the menu boards, the museum now has the wow factor they desired.
