A tvONE CORIOmaster mini video wall processor was recently installed at the new £19 million flagship Oculus foyer, a teaching and learning building at the University of Warwick, where it is driving a 16K video wall.
Entering The Oculus, visitors are greeted by a four-screen 16K resolution video wall with a range of art displays, timetables of upcoming activity in the building and live-streams of lectures and other events in the main lecture theatres as well as acting as the ‘building dashboard’.
Installed by GV Multimedia, the video wall consists of four NEC X981UHD 4K panels arranged in portrait orientation, with content supplied by five ONELAN 4K players via the tvONE CORIOmaster C3-540 video wall processor.
The building was designed exclusively for its purpose as the university’s first completely dedicated teaching structure. It boasts two auditoriums, 12 state-of-the-art flexible teaching spaces, and a number of social learning and network spaces.
The auditoriums, the 500 seat OC1.05 and the 250 person OC0.03 both use tvONE CORIOmaster mini C3-510 to edge-blend the output of the Panasonic PT-RZ12K projectors onto the screen.
“The video wall in the entrance area is our showcase for what is happening in the University,” says Ian Mason, AV analyst at the University of Warwick. “It can be used for anything from promoting departmental events and sporting successes to streaming graduation ceremonies and the annual Coventry v Warwick Varsity match. The tvONE CORIOmaster has given us unique flexibility – we can use each screen as an individual display, or combine all four into one massive, and hugely impressive, 16K resolution show screen.”
