Browns Social House Video Wall
We were recently approached by Browns Restaurant Group to help find a video wall system they can install in some existing and upcoming restaurants. The initial project would be a retrofit, along with some new installs, posed some specific issues and requirements. The entire video wall was to be suspended from the ceiling and in some instances, in the middle of the restaurant!
This required that the video wall system needed to be as light and thin as possible, while keeping a minimal pixel to pixel gap. The other hurdle we had to cross was the concern that the video wall would overpower the space due to its brightness in the evening when the restaurant lighting is very low.
With the criteria in hand, we determined the best product for this project would be a Planar Clarity Matrix G2 “System”. This boasts a fully installed depth, with mounting hardware, of only 3.6” and each 46” panel with mounting hardware would weigh a mere 42lbs each!
Planar achieves this by placing the power supplies and video processors in the AV rack and not inside each panel. This removes significant weight, and heat from the actual video wall to increase reliability, serviceability, and maintain an installed depth that is Compliant with US ADA regulations.
What we ended up with was a 138” diagonal Video wall with minimal 3.6mm pixel to pixel gaps, a 3.6” total mounted depth and a total installed weight of 378lbs!
