Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, in conjunction with three companies in the audio-visual display world, has built what it claims is the world’s largest sports “Superbook” containing the world’s largest LED video wall.
The LED video wall, which was built by Christie, is a curved array measuring 20 feet tall and 220 feet wide. It’s comprised of 1,640 2.5-millimeter Christie Velvet LED flat panel displays and boasts more than 65 million pixels.
RPV’s specialty is creating architecturally integrated mounting solutions that are often large, curved, tilted, and or complex, such as is found with the Westgate project. Along with construction of the screen, the Westgate Superbook was transformed to create a stadium-like experience, including more than 300 relaxation lounger chairs and a 100-foot long curved bar that conforms to the shape of the screen.
“To say it’s large is a giant understatement. When we were approached by HB Communications to fabricate this mounting structure for this project, we began the process of how to architecturally integrate this large, curved video wall structure into a reality,” says Randy Pagnan, the owner-principal at RVP. “After designing came the task of how to install and deploy this configuration on-site. Partnering with HB and Christie to design this project is a huge honor. We knew that we had to exceed their expectations as well as Westgate’s to make this one-of-a kind fan experience a huge success.”
“Westgate has raised the bar and we’re proud to work with them to make this project a reality,” adds Kathryn Cress, vice president, global & corporate marketing for Christie. “Christie Velvet is the ideal solution for this venue, providing a high resolution LED display, with bright, clear visuals, excellent viewing and accurate color reproduction. When you choose Christie, we work with you every step of the way to map out a solution that will bring your vision to reality.”
Suitable for 24/7 operation and delivering high-resolution, bright and seamless visuals with wide viewing angles, Christie Velvet LED tiles can be configured into any size or shape for unmatched creative freedom.
“It is exciting to see this project become a reality. HB Communications is very proud to have been part of designing and integrating the largest indoor high-resolution wall in the world,” says the company’s CEO, Dana Barron. “The image size and resolution are breathtaking and have totally transformed the Westgate Superbook into a ‘must see’ venue. RPV has been phenomenal as have the entire team assembled to execute this scale project!”
