Dallas, Texas — The Dallas World Aquarium (DWA) consists of two blocks in downtown Dallas. It is an interactive jungle and aquarium that hosts thousands of families, students, and researchers every year. DWA recently completed the construction of its latest exhibition, Cloud Forest Trek. The tropical rainforest attraction on the third floor is a multi-sensory experience, including three-toed sloths, the favorite of guests from Costa Rica, and Nanpudu, the smallest deer species in the world. The exhibition also highlights many threatened frog species from the Andean cloud forests of Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.
The zoo collaborated with SNA Displays to create a wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling LED video screen that can simulate a real-time rainforest experience from day to night. SNA Displays has created a large-format video wall that contains selected high-resolution shots of the tropical rain forests of South America where the aquarium is working on conservation.
"I hope our guests get lost in the rainforest," said Daryl Richardson, the founder of the aquarium. "The video wall brings the exotic beauty of the tropical rain forest to life, and combines it with the natural elements in the Cloud Forest Trek to create a truly panoramic experience."
Cutting-edge technology, nearly 25 feet high and 52 feet wide, comes from the BOLD™ Interior series of LED display products from SNA Displays. The video display has a pixel pitch of 4.0 mm, a resolution of 1,890 x 3,960 pixels, and the total number of pixels is slightly less than 7.5 million.
Nicole Rotyliano, project manager of SNA Displays, said: “To be honest, this is the first time I have participated in integrating our display technology into jungle plants.” This LED technology seamlessly integrates with the tropical rainforest environment and truly provides visitors with personal experience. The visual experience of its environment. The depth of field provided to tourists is absolutely amazing because it can show the realistic landscape background for the animal habitat. "
The Dallas World Aquarium is located in the West End Historic District in downtown Dallas, at 1801 North Griffin Street. The aquarium, which was originally converted from a warehouse in 1992, continues to expand its business to nearby buildings, creating spaces for displaying more types of wild animals and animals.
Audiovisual integration and installation assistance is provided by Ford AV, a leading commercial integrator of AV technology.
