Artbeats' 60-foot video wall uses Adtec Digitalís edje-1013 decoders for content delivery and Soloist 2 players for running the clip browsing stations.

A 60-foot video wall showcasing thousands of video clips were on display at the National Association of Broadcasters show in April.

For the fifth year, Adtec Digital (Nashville, TN) supplied the technology for the booth. This year, the company's edje-1013 digital video players and Soloist 2 Broadcast MPEG players powered the video for the Artbeats' (Myrtle Creek, OR) booth at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Adtec's edje-1013 decoders delivered content for Artbeats 60-screen video wall and Adtec's Soloist 2 players with dual 80-gigabyte hard drives ran Artbeats clip browsing stations.

"We chose Adtec's edje players because of the small format, the modular single channel design and the ability to provide frame-accurate, synchronous video on HD plasma monitors," says Artbeats Marketing Representative Julie Hill. "Adtec's Soloist 2 players will take commands from external controllers like Crestron or AMX and are incredibly fast when issued the command to playback our video clips."

Artbeats' 60-foot video wall showcases thousands of Artbeats footage clips on 60 monitors in a curved configuration. Artbeats, founded in 1989, is an award-winning provider of royalty-free stock footage and still imagery for broadcast, desktop video, multimedia, Internet and 3-D texture mapping.
