NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today that the company and partner Fluid Sound received a 2012 DIGI Award for best deployment in an entertainment venue for their work at the Plaza Theatre in Palm Springs, Calif.
Fluid Sound completed the installation of an NEC video wall comprised of 46-inch ultra-narrow displays to help transform the backdrop of the stage for the Fabulous Palm Springs Follies vaudeville-style musical revue. The content shown on the video wall ranges from a mix of photorealistic backdrops, with and without movement, to more artistic or conceptual renderings, depending on the mood for a given show. To create the video wall, San Diego-based Fluid Sound used NEC X461UN ultra-narrow displays in a 5x5 configuration. The displays are bright enough to withstand the high-power stage and spotlights used by the theater without being too intrusive.
