Hotel refurb includes RGB-driven penthouse videowall7 November 2017
The InterContinental New York Barclay hotel has fitted a videowall system, powered by RGB Spectrum’s MediaWall V 4K display processor, into the living room of its new Penthouse.
The hotel has undergone a $180 million property-wide renovation, which included a luxury two-bedroom Penthouse. The Penthouse features a contemporary design true to the hotel’s original 1920’s Federalist interior style.
The MediaWall V processor drives the large, touchscreen 3 x 3 display array, which offers a wide variety of viewing content. The advanced videowall system is conducive to both business and leisure activities. Guests can keep apprised of news and sporting events, conduct video teleconferencing, access the internet, keep up with social media, enjoy entertainment from local and global television broadcasts and a selection of movies, and play video games.
The MediaWall V processor receives input from a variety of sources, including five cable television boxes, a Blu-ray player, Xbox video gaming console, and multiple PCs. The MediaWall V processor consolidates these diverse sources and displays them in windows of any size, anywhere on the wall array. Guests can select inputs and choose display layouts from a selection of up to 60 presets from a touchpanel. The processor’s advanced videowall features let guests overlap images and pan and zoom to view items of particular interest.
