SEEN & NOTED: SINGAPORE — The world’s larger high-definition video wall has gone live at Suntec Exhibition and Convention Centre in Singapore. The video wall, called “The Big Picture”, stands over 15-meters tall and 60-meters wide, and is located inside the main lobby and entrance to Suntec. The Big Picture HD video wall has received the official Guinness World Records title for the Largest High-Definition Video Wall on record. The Big Picture is designed to support a resolution of 32,051 pixels wide by 7,941 pixels high, which is 84 times the resolution of HD (1 UHD = 4HD). The video wall was designed and built by LG Display and uses 664 integrated LG LED flat panel displays.
The Big Picture can act as a standalone system that displays a combination of media such as still images, animations and video clips to be shown at the same time, or a single media image in native format to be displayed over the entire wall. Interactive features are also integrated that include RFID tracking systems and sensors on the escalators located just in front of The Big Picture. With these integrated sensory systems, The Big Picture can be adapted to display welcome messages, or show specialized content alongside riders on the escalator from levels 1 to 3.
The Big Picture’s playback system uses Dataton WATCHOUT, a multi-image display and presentation software to manage the dynamic large-format content display. The video wall is controlled and operated by three major subsystems which are the video wall, playback, integration and control. Playback manages content and the principle of the design is to support ultra-high definition (UHD) media including 4K video clips and still images being managed by 21 WATCHOUT display servers, serving 84 full HD outputs. The integration and control system acts to control The Big Picture and servers, turning them on or off as required and scheduled. It also manages playback where a part of a show at a specific time can be selected or it can be used to manage interactive content.
