IAC‘s Frank Gehry-designed headquarters in New York is now home to not one, but two of the most technologically advanced and environmentally friendly video walls in the world. The main attraction is a 120-foot-long by 10-foot-wide video wall that is made up of 600 Prysm Laser Phosphorus Display (LPD) tiles, and a second display is located in the lobby. The walls deliver stunning life-size images at over 50 million pixels combined, and they reduce power and cooling costs by 70 percent compared to other technologies.
Some companies will pay over $1 million to run a video wall each year, which makes the LDP tiles an excellent cost-effective alternative. As stated by Vincent Luciani, Chief Information Officer of IAC: “We expect to dramatically decrease our energy costs while simultaneously providing an unparalleled viewing experience for our hundreds of clients and thousands of employees and visitors that attend events at the IAC HQ each year.”
LPDs save electricity by using lasers to activate the phosphors that create images. The viewing angle for the screens is nearly 180 degrees, and they’re on for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – which means that the power-saving aspect is extremely important. Prysm claims that the screens have a longer lifespan than other technologies, and they generate a lot less heat.
