BrightSign Powers World’s Largest Mosaic Video Wall at Miami Hotel

BrightSign collaborated with Planar Systems to create the world’s largest mosaic video wall at a luxury boutique hotel in Surfside, Florida. Nestled between Miami Beach and Bal Harbour, this luxury hotel celebrated its grand opening in November 2014, welcoming visitors who expect and demand the very best in style and technology. Catering to this discerning clientele, the hotel installed a towering four-story video wall in the reception area. Florida-based CMA was tasked with the installation, which features BrightSign digital signage media players and Planar displays.

“With a high-profile installation like this, it’s important that the deployment be artistically breathtaking with perfect synchronization and 24/7 reliability – that’s why we chose BrightSign,” said Cesar Cifuentes, founder and president of CMA. “Planar’s beautiful Mosaic displays work seamlessly with BrightSign’s players to create a finished product that perfectly complements the look of the hotel.”

Adding to the allure of the video wall is the fact that the hotel’s glass walls make the video wall visible from the street as well as the lobby. This impressive video wall brings landmark status to the hotel, helping it stand out among its peers in this stylish stretch of Florida coastline.
