Padua College Video Wall
Multipurpose halls are one of the most flexible and important spaces within the school environment. Given the demand placed upon these spaces, it’s worth investing in a quality audio visual solution that enables the flexibility required while also providing the “wow” factor.
Padua College brought the “wow” factor to their LaCordelle Sports Hall by upgrading the hall’s visual display from projectors to a pair of video walls. A video wall is a multi-monitor setup that consists of multiple panels arranged continuously or overlapped in order to form one large screen. The clarity and brightness of a video wall is the perfect solution for large multimedia spaces. The audio also received a much needed boost with the addition of line arrays supported by side and rear fill speakers.
Combined with an all-in-one, easy-to-use control system, Padua’s upgrade features two nine-screen 165" video walls that create an outstanding visual impact with a broad range of display functionalities. Since the space is also used as a sports hall, Videopro designed custom frames with 13mm toughened glass to protect the video walls from flying objects.
A great feature of the walls is that they can be used as digital scoreboards for sporting activities using Vivi wireless presentation and a mobile scoreboard app.
For assemblies and larger events the system can be switched to "Performance Mode" where all sources are run through the sound desk and vision mixer from the back of the room. This allows greater functionality and control; perfect for hosting live bands and incorporating external camera feeds.
