UWS University of West of Scotland Video Wall

At the University of West of Scotland (UWS), a new technology-rich reception area has been created at the entrance to the Paisley campus named as “The Atrium”

The centre-piece of which is a single monolith, digital display wall:

  • comprising of 32 off NEC X463UN 46” video wall displays in an 8x4 array
  • overall size of the whole combine display is approx. 8.36 x 2.48M

 

Control is provided by a PIPView BlackBIRD video wall controller:

  • managing a digital canvas of 32 displays each @ 1920x1080
  • total native resolution of 15,360 x 4,320 available
  • input of 16 channels – with 12 of these at 4K with stereo audio

 

There is a further video wall which is located behind the reception desk, control again is via another PIPView BlackBIRD unit:

  • this is in a 3x3 array with the same 46” video wall display units
  • total native resolution is 5,760 x 3,240
  • with 4 off 4K inputs

 

For ease of operation, the system uses pre-set layout templates, easily selectable from a touch panel in reception.

With both video walls; to maintain quality across the whole digital canvas from the various input sources, all screens are driven at native HD resolution with the ability to display any input, any size, in any position (PIP picture in picture).

 

Jim O’Donnell, CIO at UWS commented “the new display area is incredible, it has been a huge hit with our students and staff alike. The technology will allow students to share digital output, bringing to life a key element of our DREAM-BELIEVE-ACHIEVE focus

 

Located in Glasgow, Scotland the installation was completed in Spring 2016
