Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, is the eighth oldest higher education institution in the United States. As part of a larger development project, a mammoth 360 square foot LED wall transforms the historic College Ave. campus into a modern social hub for students to enjoy campus life.
The Yard is one of the most sought after on-campus housing options, largely due to the bustling common area. The u-shaped apartment building now features a colossal outdoor 6mm LED videowall and a full range loudspeaker system to broadcast Rutgers sporting and cultural events, movies, news, original programming, and live feeds.
Moveable outdoor seating and a lush grassy lawn provide ample space for students to settle in at the 30 ft. by 12 ft. display. Mounted 13 ft. above ground with a wide viewing angle, the system was designed to provide great sightlines from anywhere in the vicinity.
Weather elements are no concern in affecting picture quality. With a remarkable brightness of 6000 nits and auto-adjusted dimming, over 281 trillion colors radiate from the mammoth videowall, regardless of the exterior conditions.
A robust audio system completes the experience. The Biamp TesiraFORTE provides a configurable and scalable digital signal processing and routing solution that that can grow with the needs of the University. Powerful speakers and subwoofers immerse the crowd with crystal clear audio at every event.
The entire system is controlled effortlessly via dedicated tablet for mobile operation. The user can be in the middle of the action in the square to power the system, select sources, control the video display layout, and other control options that are crucial to a successful event.
