Canadian Broadcaster’s Biggest Staged Event Features a 525-Tile 2.9MM HyperPixel LED Videowall by APG Rentals

APG Rentals landed one of the largest one-day rental projects in the company’s history. 

This past June, one of Canada’s most prominent broadcasting companies chose to make an enormous impact at its biggest staged event of the year. To do so, the company worked again with its trusted vendor – APG Rentals – to install a dazzling display solution that would captivate the audience. With just days to build the display, and one evening to disassemble it, APG Rentals installed a 525-tile 2.9mm HyperPixel LED videowall that ‘wowed’ the crowd.

“We are proud to have just built one of the biggest one-day rental projects in our company’s history, with involvement every step of the way,” APG Rentals President David Weatherhead said. “Working with our client, a large team of contractors, and three of our lead LED technicians, we built a 525-tile HyperPixel LED display in a matter of a few days. Over 14.8 million pixels were active! Both the display solution and the integration process was efficient and impactful, exceeding the client’s expectations.”

The large main wall was flanked by eight banners and was flown above the stage by a team of contracting professionals as overseen by APG Rentals’ lead engineers. After two days of building, and one day of content configuration, the videowalls were ready for the event. “The turnaround time on an LED build of this magnitude was very fast and efficient,” said APG Rentals Key Account Executive Tim Hatch.

According to Hatch, HyperPixel’s 2.9mm LED display is the perfect videowall for events that demand high quality. The HyperPixel 2.9mm LED display is visibly cable-less; all tiles “click” into each other and lock in. This unique feature not only looks clean, but it also reduces installation time – which is ideal with such a significant time constraint. “The HyperPixel LED displays are ‘rental-ready,’” Hatch explained. “With the cables built into the tiles, instead of visible behind the tiles, set-up is fast, efficient and clean. This feature significantly impacted how quickly we could build the videowall for the event.”

Additionally, the HyperPixel LED display’s visual features met many of the goals that the client set to accomplish. “There are no bezels, which creates one crisp, seamless image, making it easy to view,” Weatherhead continued. “Additionally, the HyperPixel LED display guarantees high brightness and a wide viewing angle for the audience. Our client was also filming the presentation, which required that the display have a fine enough pixel pitch to translate on camera. HyperPixel checked off all of these boxes.”

APG Rentals recently introduced the HyperPixel 2.9mm LED display for its rental customers. The new fine pixel pitch display features high resolution images, industry-leading service design, and ultra-tight seams to create the ultimate visual experience. The new premium 2.9mm LED rental solution is one of the fastest installation systems available, saving critical time on-site.

“Our rental customers, unlike ever before, have access to the highest quality, finest pixel pitch displays available today,” Weatherhead concluded. “APG Rentals is the one place where renters can find seamless, bezel-less displays and a fast team of installation professionals to make their visions a reality. We’re proud to provide groundbreaking solutions and top-of-the-line services.”
