Georgia State University crowns new building with a NanoLumens' curved display
Georgia State University, based in Atlanta, Georgia, recently constructed a new building for its Creative Media Institute. In order to make a splash with the building, the university teamed up with NanoLumens to deploy a curved display, according to a press release.
NanoLumens supplied a 34-inch wide curved trapezoid, with the left and right ends standing 10 feet and 7 feet tall, respectively. The display features 3-millimeter pixel pitch to offer a clear picture and display ratio.
On the opening day of the building, students were able to draw on the display from their mobile devices through an interactive program from artist Pablog Gnecco and the 9to5.tv team. Later, students will be able to create digital media products specifically for the display.
"We want to triple the workforce in the future of media production," Elizabeth Strickler, director of media entrepreneurship and innovation, CMI, said in the release. "Growing entrepreneurship within the media space is huge right now, with new programming and novel interactive experiences being introduced almost daily. As one of the nation’s leading media production education programs, we strive to give students the best tools to do research and development within the purview of media creation."
