The end of the year celebrated another spectacular Media Resources project, the tallest pylon sign in Arizona!
YESCO’s firing up of the unit coincided with the opening of the 202 freeway and the new “Vee Quiva Way” exit which connects all 3 Gila River properties: Wild Horse Pass; Lone Butte; Vee Quiva. Notably, all three properties now feature VISIONiQ displays!
The pylon stands 120’ tall and features twin 38’H x 25’W 16.67mm 400 Series VISIONiQ displays. Driving uptime and reliability, the displays were built with full redundancy, diagnostics, lifetime alerting and monitoring. Our exclusive redundancy/backup systems includes data signal, scanning/receiving cards, controller and photocell.
Visually stunning, the displays utilize advanced optics to produce the best images in the industry. From our innovative Optically Down Angled LEDs (direct light towards the viewer) to our exclusive offset pixel design (wider view angles), every optical element has been tuned to perfection.
Brains and beauty, that’s a sure bet.
Hard Rock Fire Mountain’s grand opening was earlier this month with the ribbon cutting done in front of their new digital displays. The displays by YESCO using Media Resources display technology truly deserves the term spectacular!
When we saw the artist’s rendering, we were blown away by the innovation. Fortunately for us, the fact that it was so innovative was key in the decision to go with Media Resources. After all, with over 50 years of custom signage experience throughout the Americas, who knows more?
The display consists of seven custom built undulating columns using our VISIONiQ 10mm SMD modules. The center column is 46′ 2.3″ high x 5′ 3″ wide (1408p x 160p) with six other columns of decreasing height.
To ensure operation is not compromised by system issues, it was built with VISIONiQ’s industry leading Redundancy Systems.
Since it would be viewed so closely, manufacturing precision had to be extremely tight. All the columns had to match perfectly from the steel supports to the cabinets to the module mounting.
Kudos to the team that came up with this concept. We’re proud to have helped it come to life. It truly is a work of art and a spectacular LED digital display.
For Spectacular information
Designing, engineering, building and installing a digital LED billboard is no small task and at Media Resources we do it all from scratch from sizing and cutting the metal work to piecing the whole thing together, without the use of welding to all of the electical wiring and programming the LED components. If that wasn’t enough we also make sure the entire unit is sealed tight and waterproofed, that the LED components are perfectly lined up and the whole unit is put together and tested right in our warehouse. Then, we take it all apart and prep it for shipping, we load it safely onto a transport truck and we follow it to it’s new home and we install the whole thing.
What you, the consumer see’s when you drive by one of these huge LED billboards is all just the icing on the cake, below we will take you through the steps required to design, engineer, build and install a 14×48 foot long digital LED Billboard.
After the metalwork assembly is complete, a full inspection guarantees the frame is ready for population. The frame is then mounted to a moveable bracket system with castors that doubles as a shipping bracket. The population team then installs the LED modules, places power and control components, routes and connects cables/wiring, installs cabinet doors and hooks up the unit for test. Specialists then produce and install the networking and computing equipment into the door-mounted compartments.
Media Resources is exhibiting at this year’s Consac Show. Watch for us at booth #255 and #804. We’re featuring our VISIONiQ system.
Also, on Friday September 19 we have a our Open House at 1387 Cornwall Road in Oakville. Tour our manufacturing facility and see our large format digital print presses at work, as well as our Digital LED team building large spectacular displays!
