When you walk into the University of Warwick’s new £19m teaching and learning building, The Oculus, you’re greeted by an expansive four-screen 16K-resolution videowall that’s driven by tvONE’s Coriomaster processor. The videowall displays a range of art displays, timetables of upcoming activity in the building, and live-streams of lectures and other events in the main lecture theatres. The videowall is comprised of four NEC X981UHD 4K panels arranged in portrait orientation, with content supplied by five Onelan 4K players via the tvONE Coriomaster C3-540 videowall processor.
Ian Mason, AV Analyst at the University of Warwick, said, “The video wall in the entrance area is our showcase for what is happening in the University. It can be used for anything from promoting departmental events and sporting successes to streaming graduation ceremonies and the annual Coventry v Warwick Varsity match. The tvONE Coriomaster has given us unique flexibility — we can use each screen as an individual display, or combine all four into one massive, and hugely impressive, 16K resolution show screen.”
The Oculus in the UK’s University of Warwick is an impressive sight. This stunning building was designed exclusively for its purpose as the university’s first completely dedicated teaching structure. It boasts two auditoriums, 12 state-of-the-art flexible teaching spaces, and a number of social learning and network spaces. The auditoriums, the 500-seat OC1.05 and the 250-person OC0.03 both use tvONE Coriomaster mini C3-510s to edge-blend the output of the Panasonic PT-RZ12K projectors onto the screen.
