NEC videowall shows digital Hockney art8 February 2012
The much acclaimed major exhibition of new landscape works by David Hockney RA, opened at the Royal Academy of Arts, London on 21 January. A 6 x 3 video wall using the 55” NEC MultiSync X551UN LED-backlit LCD display is displaying a series of digital video works, produced using 18 cameras.
“There are few display applications more challenging than displaying works of art, they require reproduction of the finest detail, and absolute colour accuracy is essential,” said Jonathan Cooper, business development manager at NEC Display Solutions (pictured).
“We’re delighted that the high quality of the X551UN has been recognised in this way.”
From the Royal Academy of Arts, the exhibition will move on to the Guggenheim in Bilbao and then to The Ludwig Museum in Cologne as it progresses on its European tour. The video wall will be disassembled and re-installed at each exhibition to continue to provide the ultimate digital canvas.
