CubeX Video has provided a 3×3 high-defintion LCD video wall in the newly renovated Memorial Stadium at the University of Illinois in Champaign, giving prospective student-athletes a dazzling view of football highlights and school information along with live sporting events or PowerPoint presentations for good measure.
CubeX 3×3 Video Wall
The university’s football program uses the video wall, installed in the recruiting lounge at the stadium’s north end.
“Our new recruiting lounge is like a resume for Illinois football,” said Adrian Melendez, director of football operations at the University of Illinois. “While many of the historical displays on the walls will stay the same, we use the CubeX video wall to provide updated football highlights and current information about the university. The CubeX video wall represents a significant improvement over our old projector system, making it easy for us to go from full-screen to multiscreen format and giving us the flexibility to display multiple visual elements at once.”
Renovations on the stadium were completed in 2008.
The nine 46-inch LCD screens that make up the 3×3 CubeX video wall accept up to six SD or HD (1920×1080) inputs and is currently fed by three HD cable receivers, a Blu-ray player, and two computers with DVI outputs.
The monitors feature perfect 178-degree viewing angles and are uniformly brightness- and color-calibrated to ensure perfect 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 simplifies control and configuration—supporting multiple presets for different layouts and sources—while providing functionality such as automatic gap compensation when needed.
