Presidential Museum and Library Features Barco LiveDots LED Display
Update:2013-09-27  Views:697
Barco LiveDots announced it is supplying the latest version of its high-resolution C5 LED display to showcase a video exhibition created by renowned media artist David Niles of Niles Creative Group at the George W. Bush Presidential Museum and Library.
 
The experience begins as visitors enter the library's architectural centerpiece, Freedom Hall. What appears to be a seamless 360-degree giant painted mural suddenly comes to life, revealing ultra-high resolution time lapse views of Texas. Then an animated tableau of American life featuring one hundred characters appears. A Washington, D.C., flyover and a surprising finale end the presentation, the company said. The visuals and original orchestral soundtrack surround the audience. The experience celebrates the diversity of the land, its people and the connected nature of all Americans.
 
Running every 15 minutes as a prequel to the museum and library tours, the seven-minute show, entitled “We the People,” presents a theatrical tribute to Americana, its people and hallowed institutions of democracy. Niles conceived this experience and brought the challenge to Barco LiveDots, seeking the team’s technological expertise in developing a new display solution to achieve his vision.
 
The composited 160-foot by 21-foot ultra-high resolution display wall is comprised of our four individual surfaces of Barco LiveDots’ C5 LED displays, each 40 tiles wide and 16 tiles high, or 21 feet by 52 feet in area. The tiles are seamlessly joined at each interior wall corner to form a giant video screen enveloping visitors overhead as they enter the foyer.
 
“We are excited to be a part of such a historically significant and awe-inspiring project,” Carl Rijsbrack, chief marketing officer for Barco LiveDots, said. “The opportunity to work with Niles Creative Group’s inspiration and flawless execution is always a treat. The seamless combination of David Niles’ innovative theatrical artistry and our production team’s outstanding technical abilities results in an amazing, dynamic show that only a product as rigorously designed as our C5 could handle.”
 
Located on the edge of the Southern Methodist University campus in University Park, Texas, the new 226,565-square-foot, $250 million Bush Center is home to the nation’s 13th Presidential Library and Museum. The institution commemorates the Bush Administration, offering in-depth access to Presidential materials including thousands of artifacts and millions of electronic records.
