Raven Industries installed a digital signage video wall as part of its extensive corporate lobby redesign, installing a three-unit-tall by seven-unit-wide array of Christie MicroTiles that shows videos of the company's history and its three operating divisions, according to an announcement from Christie Digital Systems.
Located in Sioux Falls, S.D., and founded in 1956, Raven Industries designs and manufactures high value technical products.
Andrew Simmons, project coordinator for Raven Industries, discovered Christie MicroTiles at a Chicago trade show and thought they would be an "innovative concept" to include in Raven Industries' remodeling plans for its headquarters, the announcement said.
For the lobby, the architect created a 45-degree angle, white-faced wall, placing the Christie MicroTiles inside and raised above ground level. The front desk operator sits to the left of the wall and with the remodel now complete, the new employee entrance off to one side provides a second direct view of the MicroTiles.
"The executive team was looking for a design that incorporated HD content without the traditional limits of a television mounted to a wall," Simmons said. "We didn't want to implement something that every company had done; we wanted something new and innovative that positions us as a tech company. It was important that we select a robust design that ensures longevity."
