Capital Tower, Cardiff

A welcoming reception desk with useful information

Landmark office space in the heart of Cardiff

Capital Tower is the second tallest building in Cardiff.  This landmark building has recently had a complete modernisation and upgrade. The building is managed by This Property Matters.  In this upgrade TPM made sure the whole building was fitted to the highest contemporary standards. The new logo was part of this process. TPM wished to reflect the qualities of the new offices and use the new logo at the reception desk.

The best way to do all this was with a dynamic reception desk video wall.

AV Requirements:

Four screen landscape video wall

The layout of the reception desk area suggested an extreme wide format display. So Drake AV designed a four screen landscape video wall display. For this display we chose to use a OneLan ultra HD signage player which outputs an image nearly eight thousand pixels wide. This means each HD screen can run at its full native resolution.

As well as their outstanding image quality OneLan players have proved to be extremely reliable and have the fullest UK based support.

What we installed:

OneLan player
Wall mount pop out bracket
Samsung UH46F5 screen

The video wall components

The hardware we used included a OneLan NTB 4K 1000F digital signage player and four Samsung UH46F5 videowall screens. These screens have a very narrow image to image total bezel gap of just 3.5mm. This means the overall image looks nearly unbroken.

For a video wall to work the screens have to be mounted precisely in line. To do this we chose a B-Tech single rail with pop out mounts. The pop out mounts mean each screen can be accessed easily for maintenance.

The final and most important component of any digital signage system is the content. For this we appointed OneMedia to design the content and layouts with our client TPM. OneMedia also took on remote management of the display and gave some initial user training.
