Atlanta-based NanoLumens, makers of custom-built indoor and outdoor LED displays for a variety of markets, announces the winners of its 2018 Crystal Nixel Awards, given annually to recognize the outstanding design and implementation of its products.

The two winners, announced by CEO Rick Cope, were those involved in the Aon Center in Chicago in the domestic category, and the creators of Singapore’s Changi Airport Terminal Four displays in the international category;.

On the domestic front, JLL, Sensory Technologies and Pixelfire were all recognized for the Aon Center installation in Chicago. The center, which is one of Chicago’s most famous and recognizable buildings, recently began a full renovation of its lobby and atrium, complete with two 42’ x 10’, 4mm pixel pitch NanoLumens LED displays that create a floor-to-ceiling digital wall that displays stunning Chicago-themed imagery on a massive scale for tenants and guests. Measuring 840 square feet, the displays dominate the building’s main entrance at the south lobby and present five stunning three-minute videos on a constant loop, according to NanoLumens.

Electronics & Engineering Pte Ltd (E&E) and Moment Factory were the international winners. NanoLumens says that the Changi Airport, which regularly tops the list of the world’s best airports, had two state-of-the-art NanoLumens Performance Series LED displays installed in its new Terminal 4 to captivate the thousands of passing travelers each day. The so-called “Immersive Wall” was dubbed one of the largest indoor airport displays in the world, measuring an impressive 70 meters (230’) wide x 5 meters (16’) tall with a 6mm pixel pitch. The wall broadcasts visuals created by Montreal’s Moment Factory.

Additionally, E&E installed a 10-meter-wide by 60-meter-tall, 4mm pixel pitch display in the departure transit area’s Heritage Zone, which is built directly into a shophouse facade with several faux building fronts that highlight the island nation’s architectural evolution from the 1880’s to the 1950’s.

“NanoLumens stands behind excellence, innovation, and recognizing all that creative minds can achieve when it comes to designing compelling and engaging LED display-based visualization solutions,” Cope says. “Both of these winning installations perfectly illustrate how NanoLumens display technology can transform an entire environment by creating fresh and compelling engagement experiences.”
