University of Illinois gets CubeX HD video wall for Memorial Stadium
CubeX Video has provided a 3 x 3 HD LCD video wall for the newly renovated Memorial Stadium at the University of Illinois in Champaign. The university's football program uses the video wall, installed in the recruiting lounge at the stadium's north end, to show student-athletes football highlights, information about the facilities and academic offerings available at the university, as well as live video from football games around the NCAA.
Installed to support the recruiting activities for the Fighting Illini football program, the CubeX video wall is used to display video segments, game footage, graphics, school logos, live TV feeds and PowerPoint presentations. It accepts up to six SD or HD (1920 x 1080) inputs and is currently fed by three HD cable receivers, a Blu-ray player and two computers with DVI outputs.
The nine 46in LCD screens that make up the 3 x 3 CubeX video wall feature 178-degree viewing angles and are uniformly brightness- and color-calibrated to ensure smooth panel-to-panel color matching. An ultra-thin half-inch bezel on each panel further enhances the impact of dynamic HD video displayed over multiple panels or the entire video wall. The integrated video wall processing system supports multiple presets for different layouts and sources‚ while providing valuable functionality such as automatic gap compensation when required.
