The Urban Panels Network devised by CBS Outdoor is a new type of street fixture similar to billboard advertisements.

Electrosonic overcame many unique technical challenges installing the video and audio systems for “Creation: Once Upon All Time,” the show staged inside the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California. The cathedral is the home base for the international Crystal Cathedral Ministries with a congregation of over 10,000 members. The soaring, airy cathedral features more than 10,000 windows of silver-colored glass held in place by a lace-like framework of white steel trusses, a challenging environment for a house of worship in which audio and video play a regular role in services as well as in special shows.

The Global Village at Expo 92 Seville

Seville, Spain

The Telecommunications Pavilion at EXPO 92, Seville, presented a sequence of shows in three theaters, with audio-visual engineering by Electrosonic. The highlight was a show called “The Global Village”, which used a massive 850-monitor videowall arranged 34x25. Weighing over 35 tons, and measuring 16m (53 feet) wide and 10m (33 feet) high, it was considered the world’s biggest videowall at the time – when measured by the number of separate display devices.

The videowall for “The Global Village” used powerful imagery to trace the history of communication from the first forms of script to the satellite communication of today. The architect’s design concept was that the videowall could, as part of the show, present a map of the world where each monitor was a “pixel”.
