2009 Judges' Award: The Comcast Experience

David Niles' Comcast Experience is a lot of things. It's a corporate AV installation, an AV technology marvel, an entertainment masterpiece, and a Philadelphia tourist attraction. It's a 83.3-foot-wide by 25.4-foot-high LED wall, built from 6,771 Barco NX-4 LED modules delivering 10 million total pixels. Its original high-definition content was developed, choreographed, and filmed by Niles Creative Group. And it defies simple AV integration labels.

Medialon systems control the show, initiating feeds from an HD media server farm and sending them to Barco's Encore Presentation System and six Barco DX-700 LED processors. Is the Experience repeatable? The Niles Creative Group says it has received requests for similar projects.
