LENEXA, Kan. — Keywest Technology has completed an extensive, turnkey digital signage installation at the Garland (Texas) Special Events Center. The $31.5 million multi-purpose complex, owned by the Garland Independent School District, is home to a 7,500-seat arena used for concerts and sporting events, as well as a multi-tiered lecture hall, conference center and ballroom.
Keywest Technology provided an array of digital signage equipment and services, including MediaXtreme Signage media servers, Media POD players, LCD flat panel displays and custom digital signage content from the company’s DSX Media division.
“The Garland Special Events Center is an outstanding example of the scope of Keywest Technology’s digital signage core competencies,” said company president Nick Nichols. “In Garland, we delivered a truly turnkey digital signage system that required our systems engineers, software team, talented installers and digital signage content designers to collaborate to deliver the exact system that meets the needs of the Garland Independent School District.”
Completing the project required Keywest Technology to provide a full range of services, including initial and final design, full installation, training, digital signage content development and continuing post-install service and support. The project also called for Keywest Technology to integrate the system with several third-party products, including a 96-square-foot LED arena display and Ungerboeck event business management software, to deliver a unified solution for the school district.
The lineup of Keywest Technology hardware, software and services included seven MediaXtreme MXS-MZ event players; 12 Media POD players; 16 17-inch LG Electronics LCD flat panel displays; six four-inch LG Electronics LCD displays; 16 32-inch displays; three large static backlit signs, designed and printed by the Keywest DSX Media division; 26,000 feet of Cat-5 cable; and a Keywest Technology custom-built color skew adjustment box.
