Electrosonic Delivers LED Video Wall for The Weather Channel
Comprised of 12 Christie display cubes
ATLANTA -- When
The Weather Channel wanted to upgrade the primary studio set at its
Atlanta headquarters, it turned to Electrosonic to install a new video
wall to replace the previous display the company had provided.
new system, comprised of 12 Christie Entero LED-illuminated
rear-projection display cubes, is now seen as a backdrop for on-air
talent and is a vehicle for live video and map presentations. The installation was challenged by the need
to do the work on a fully functioning set. Electrosonic installed the
wall’s pedestal and cubes, adjusted the geometry and color balanced the
screens to match the studio lighting.
video wall is designed in a 2x6 configuration with dimensions measuring
26.9 feet wide by 6.8 feet high. A three-output Vista Spyder image
processor drives a trio of 1-in/4-out distribution amps. Each of the
DAs, in turn, drives one of three 2x2 sections of the wall. The video
wall does its own processing of each 2x2 section, creating one large
dynamic image across the display.
