Kings Place is an independently-funded arts and conference venue in the heart of Kings Cross. Their programme is as diverse, engaging and innovative as the city it’s based in. Kings Place provide a diverse offering of music, spoken word, festivals, comedy and visual art.
UNDERSTANDING THEIR NEEDS
Eclipse Digital Media began working with Kings Place in 2014, where the initial requirement was to migrate from an existing digital signage platform to a new, technically strong and feature rich platform. Over a period of ongoing consultation consisting of various on site meetings, product demonstrations and phone calls, Kings Place were able to identify their digital signage requirements clearly and outline exactly what was most important to them in terms of the new system and display solutions.
Kings Place required an on-premise signage solution with the ability to support live network broadcast streams from events. They also wanted a ‘big impact’ signage solution for their reception space to replace the manual wooden boards.
Digital Signage System
After a consultation period and various product demonstrations and evaluations, Eclipse Digital Media helped Kings Place to settle on using a ONELAN digital signage system.
This system includes an on-premise Content Management Server (CMS) along with a number of Subscriber NTBs some of which include stream-in licenses to decode and display UDP streams broadcast on the Kings Place network.
The subscribers are connected to various displays around the building utilising the existing screen hardware available.
Reception LED Wall
Initially Kings Place specified a video wall requirement for the Reception area to deliver their ‘big impact’. With the dimensions available and desire for making a maximum impact to visitors, Eclipse Digital spent time proposing a variety of video wall solutions along side an LED Narrow Pixel Pitch Video Wall.
To help convince Kings Place LED was the right product for them, Eclipse Digital worked with PSCo to arrange an on site demonstration day where a 3.2mm and 2.4mm pixel pitch Absen LED panels were set up and Kings Place staff were invited to view and examine in detail. After this demo day, Kings Place agreed LED was exactly the right product and opted for the 2.4mm pixel pitch LED panels.
The solution installed was 30 Absen N2 panels covering 2.8m x 1.73m and offering a resolution of 1200 x720. This was installed with a bespoke mount and side framework, along with a light sensor to automatically modulate the brightness of the LED.
Eclipse Digital Media installed all the controllers, remote management computer, digital signage player and light sensor kit within a wall mounted data cabinet in an alcove area behind reception. Eclipse Digital Media also manufactured and installed the alcove door system with integrated light sensor.
